Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. It’s SuperBowl Sunday and I wanted to try and share something at least somewhat related. We’ll see how things play out tonight, but I think the team that wins will be the one that plays their game. The team that plays to their strengths. Those strengths have worked well enough to get them to the big game. I think we can apply this to ourselves as well. I’m guessing you’ll do best if you lean into the things that you’re best at. The things that work for you to create opportunities and move them forward.
Now there are a lot of managers out there who will try to get you to play their game and play the way they succeeded. The great managers, and the great coaches for that matter, are the ones who will help you develop your own strengths. Sometimes you need to trust the process, and try the things that your manager is suggesting or try the new tactic or approach that you read in a book or heard on a podcast, but ultimately you’ve got to make it your own. Sure, you want to continue to experiment and adapt, but find what works for you and keep going down that path.
I absolutely believe that that’s how real champions develop and emerge. They have to find their own unique way and style and find the team and the coaches where that fits and they can excel.
It doesn’t happen overnight. It takes years of effort and maybe even a bit of maneuvering to get into the right position, but if you keep at it and play your game. I think you’ve got a great chance of coming home with your version of the ring.
Let me know your thoughts. I always enjoy hearing from you. Send me a note on LinkedIn or to [email protected] and tonight I’ll be rooting for my childhood hometown team, especially now that they’re back in LA where they belong. Go Rams!
