Psychology of Success – How I’M Inspired by Former English Football (Soccer) Star Stuart Pearce!

It doesn’t matter which field you want to work in life. There are often very few obvious shortcuts. Not everyone is born in a wealthy, or even supporting family and often people are left to their own devices.

It doesn’t matter which field you want to work in life. There are often very few obvious shortcuts. Not everyone is born in a wealthy, or even supporting family and often people are left to their own devices. Don’t bet on the government to sort your problems out for you- I spent years working for the government and there’s only so much people in power can achieve (some would argue if they achieve anything at all!)

I wanted to talk to you about a concept I have which is called “playing the long game”- it’s to do with perseverance. I’m primarily talking about it as I’m applying it in my own life and business strategy across the board.

Too many people give up far too quickly, too easily in life. Life is not about one constant ascendency as you will know. However the ride to the top can be smoothed by a number of shifts in your mental attitude to the world and it’s people. You may have heard of an English footballer called Stuart Pearce who played for his country 78 times, was captain for club and country and also played in the Premier League until he was nearly forty.

In his autobiography, he said that the reason he was able to become a professional in the first place was that he was willing to taker the knocks, and keep working when others had already given up or decided they didn’t want to become anything special. There were always better players at school, county level who were better than h เว็บแทงบอลปลอดภัย ufabetim he said; although he was usually one of the better players, he was never the best. But few of those at a young age who were the “best” went on to make the professional grade And as is so often it’s the ones who put in consistent, small chunks of effort over a longer amount of time, rather than a huge burst in a short space of time will make it.

The difference is that he had the discipline and focus to last through the tough times, and there were plenty. In fact he was still advertising his services as an electrician even when he got his first professional contract at Coventry City FC, such was the amount of insecurity he felt! Undoubtedly, his level of determination was much tougher than most of his opponents; during his playing years he was called “psycho” for his uncompromising approach to dealing with attackers! This does not mean by any means you have to have exactly the same psychological makeup as Stuart Pearce; but guaranteed, any extra effort you make, you can be rest assured that there is equally someone out there who doesn’t want to get out of bed, or they just are content to watch another couple of hours of TV… what could you be doing in that time?

A mental toughness is sometimes required to become the best or to make any level of success. The difference between a champion and an also ran could slightly less effort over a consistent amount of time, weeks, months, years.
