I am an optimist. Even as I walk through tough, dark times, I can see a bright future ahead.
It keeps me going.
Though many 8pm Warriors are walking through dark hours in their business or career, I still believe the future is bright for those who invest in their future…especially now.
On Wall Street, we said “Buy when there’s blood in the streets”.
The man who is credited with that saying, an 18th century British nobleman named Baron Rothschild, made a fortune buying stocks during the financial crisis after the Battle of Waterloo. Many of those stocks were of his own companies.
His original quote is believed to be “Buy when there’s blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own.”
The blood in the streets is our own.
I see it every day. Small business leaders struggling, talented folks doubting, so many wondering, “when will things get better?”
I get sad when I see those who stop before they get there, the leaders who quit on themselves, or the suicides of desperate warriors.
If you believe that you’re working towards something special, don’t give up hope. Don’t quit now. Invest in yourself.
This Joe Paterno and Penn State leadership child molestation cover up is sickening.
What’s even worse is that some of it could have been easily avoided. The pain and shame so many feel right now was unnecessary.
It’s clear that some leaders at Penn State covered up disturbing crimes happening on their campus. I won’t point fingers at anyone in particular, but two people are now facing criminal charges. Others are facing moral charges from thousands of people who are wondering why they didn’t do more. Say more.
Integrity is doing the right thing when no one is looking, not just the “legal minimum”. It means calling the cops when something like this happens, not just calling your boss.
I understand this would have been a major distraction and black eye for their successful football program at the time, but now it may be a crippling blow.
Leaders can work hard to achieve record success, but if they allow unethical behavior on their watch, it may all mean nothing. Regardless of records, legends, or stellar reputations, all leaders will fall when moral issues like this are ignored. There is more to life. There is more to success. Leadership without honor is hollow.
Leaders must have their success and honor too.
“Success with Honor” is Penn State’s motto. Now they have neither.
Usually, 8pm Warriors that make something great during their lives can point to key situations where success happened by an inch or two. It might be the large client that changed their mind and chose you, or the time you found just enough capital to push through a slow period.
Those victories are won by an inch. Every inch, every chance mattered for success.
The same goes for failure.
One of the reasons I am so passionate about pushing my absolute limits is because everywhere I look, I see inches. I try to take every inch when I can, not knowing how far I really have to go to reach my goal.
Even so, I am worried about missing by a couple inches. It’s one of my greatest fears and cause of numerous agonizing defeats.
I’m not alone.
We all need inches and tonight is the best time to find them.
PS. One of my friends mentioned that this pep talk below really fits with this topic. I agree. Check it out.
I’ve made every wrong choice a middle-aged man can make. I pissed away all my money, believe it or not. I chased off anyone who’s ever loved me, and lately, I can’t even stand the face I see in the mirror.
You know when you get old in life, things get taken from you. That’s part of life. But you only learn that when you start losing stuff. You find out life’s this game of inches. And so is football. Because in either game, life or football, the margin for error is so small. I mean…one half a step too late or too early and you don’t quite make it. One half second too slow too fast, you don’t quite catch it.
The inches we need are everywhere around us. They are in every break of the game, every minute, every second.
On this team, we fight for that inch. On this team, we tear ourselves and everyone else around us to pieces for that inch. We claw with our fingernails for that inch. Because we know when we add up all those inches, that’s gonna make the difference between winning and losing! Between living and dying!
I’ll tell you this – in any fight, its the guy who’s willing to die who’s gonna win that inch. And I know if I’m going to have any life anymore, it’s because I’m still willing to fight and die for that inch. Because that’s what living is!
I recently watched “Nature’s Most Amazing Events” and found inspiration in the segment about the annual Pacific Salmon run.
The story serves as a great reminder to all who feel stuck on a path to something great.
Salmon are drawn by instinct to swim against the current, jump huge waterfalls, and avoid massive bears to achieve their mission. Out of every 1000 salmon that are born, only 4 make the round trip from their birth place to the ocean and back again.
It’s the challenge of a lifetime!
However, as if that wasn’t hard enough, sometimes the water levels are too low for the salmon to meet the bears, waterfalls, or heavy currents they’re destined to face. They get stuck before the real battle even begins.
It’s heartbreaking to watch and reminds me of so many brilliant, passionate 8pm Warriors who are stuck.
Then the rain comes.
Just as many of the fish are starting to lose energy and hope, the rainy season begins and allows the fish to resume their epic struggle against all odds to achieve their ultimate life goal. They can finally begin the fight they were designed for.
Many of my fellow 8pm Warriors are on their way to following their dreams. We all signed up for the challenges of developing new products or services, avoiding competitors, and challenging the status quo. We’re okay with swimming against the current.
What we didn’t sign up for was the lack of water.
This economy has dried up many options and left many 8pm Warriors wondering, hurting, and weak.
Tonight I urge you to hold on. Just like those salmon, do not turn back. Do not forfeit your goal or your path. Never give up.
The rain is coming!
The challenges we seek will be here soon enough and the days of funding issues and weak demand will be replaced with the challenges of finding the right people, products, and strategies again.
The pain of failure is much easier to take than the regret of quitting early on something great.
