Shot 28: DETERMINED TO SUCCEED

By: Tom Newhouse in Leadership, 1 year ago

A Shot is a poignant leadership tip from “a rifle.”  Yes, leadership coach, Tom Newhouse, uses a rifle from his farming heritage to “tell it like it is.” —­­

RUDY HAD A PLAQUE in his room that read “What matters is not the size of the man in the fight, but the size of the fight in the man!”  Hard to beat determination—it finds a way.  Maybe not right off, but in time, determination comes through.  In my case, Rudy determined to be accurate, and that made us extraordinary—even though I was a single shot.

Winners don’t give up.  They don’t whine.  They push on, look for other approaches, or come back again and again until they master their craft.  They succeed in spite of challenges, and when they do, they are leading because they are now out in front.  They are extra-ordinary.
