I love winners…

They make me smile…

Watching the All Blacks on Saturday night was excruciating yet at the 70 minute mark it was as if they just decided to win the game in spite of what was actually trending in their performance.

Is it Leadership?

Is it Belief?

Is it Habit?

Is it Ability?

I don’t know but it is well worth reflection. I love winners… On Sunday I watched my local club Miramar Rangers win the Chatham Cup (NZ‘s FA Cup) also so I was smiling all weekend. Yet again I got that warm fuzzy that goes with winning and admiring some top individual moments, team spirit and celebrations.

Thanks to Richie McCaw and Mike Woodside, the two captains of two winning teams, who reminded me that Winning puts a smile on your face. Whether it’s for your club or your country doesn’t matter it’s just a great habit to get into.

Thanks you guys, I’m going to keep reflecting on winners and their habits!


Winning Culture…

You have to give the Warriors a big rap for their performances over the last two weeks. The most striking thing for me is how they seem so controlled and playing with with total confidence in and respect for eachother. It reminds me of sitting in the Olympic stadium watching the Wallabies knock the All Blacks out of the 2003 Rugby World Cup. That day in Sydney the Wallabies were just like the Warriors are now picking each other up after mistakes and applauding each other for the good stuff. It has a real energy about it and you could see that day the ABs did not have that same team culture!

It’s everything we aim for in our own businesses I’m sure and what better demonstration off it than in a Sports Team right in the high performance ZONE!

Well Done to everyone at the Warriors I’m loving it!
