If you’re a football fan, you have without a doubt heard about Brett Favre. Brett was one hell of a quarterback. What he accomplished on the field was extraordinary. More specifically even when people counted him out towards the latter stages of his career he still managed to perform at an exceptional level. Brett truly built the habit of excellence so every time he stepped foot on the field he couldn’t help, but be excellent. This is where you need to be. You need to get accustomed to busting your ass and performing at a high level.
If you continuously perform at a high level day in and day out not only will you build up the habit of excellent, but you will become successful. It’s simple. When you’re performing at a high level, you are beating out the competition nine times out of ten.
So that’s an additional tip that you should apply to your life.
If you’re going to do something make sure you’re doing it at a high level.
Now lets explore some more tips.
Brett Favre’s Top 3 Tips For Success
1. Focus On Today, Not Tomorrow
“You’re never guaranteed about next year. People ask what you think of next season, you have to seize the opportunities when they’re in front of you.”
The tomorrow you dreamed about yesterday is here today. Take advantage. Don’t spend today worrying about tomorrow or don’t spend this year worrying about next year. This is truly pointless. Not only do you not know if you’re going to be here tomorrow or next year, but even if you are you can not create the tomorrow of your dreams if you are not living today to the utmost degree.
Your today’s create your tomorrows. You have to be exceptional today, if you want to be a winner tomorrow. A lot of people forget this. Hence they just continue to delay their happiness and such for the future and think one day they’re just going to wake up and everything is going to be great. Unfortunately this is not how it works. In order to be great tomorrow, you have to be great today.
2. Take Care Of The Small Things
“We got to finish the deal. And how do we do that? By doing the little things correctly.”
When it comes to life people tend to overlook the small things. The small things will actually become the big things later on and when you realize that it may be too late. However if you want to accomplish big things in life it’s important to take care of the small things. The small things make up the big things so make sure you’re taking care of business.
The small things when it comes to chasing your dreams include things such as your mindset, your beliefs, your attitude etc. These things may not seem important, however these small things will either make you or break you so it’s important you have them work for you and not against you.
3. Don’t Blow Your Chances
“With each game I play, each season I play, everyone would agree with me, I’m running out of chances.”
It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old. This is the mindset you should adopt. Don’t think you will be given chance after chance. Therefore you need to learn how to take advantage and exploit the chances that you are given.
The next time you are presented with an opportunity say to yourself…
This may be the last opportunity I am ever granted and my success depends on this so LETS GO AND SEIZE THIS and make my dreams a reality (or at least get one step closer).
