Seahawks, life coaches and behind the scenes stories

russellwilsonDid you watch the Big Game on Sunday?  If you’re like me… two questions ran through your head:



  • Which was the best ad?  

  • How did Russell Wilson (the QB for the Seattle Seahawks) perform like a 10-year veteran even though he only has 2 years experience in the NFL?    

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m NOT a huge football fan, but as a life coach and a trainer of life coaches… I’m always captivated when I see excellence in action

When I see it I want to learn from it.  I want to dig into it.  I want to find out more.  I want to get “behind the scenes” and find out how it happens.

One of my favorite “behind the scenes” stories to emerge from this Super Bowl was the quite story of Wilson’s journey to the Super Bowl… LAST YEAR.

“Wait, what?”  You might be saying.  “He didn’t make it to the Super Bowl last year!”

True.  He didn’t.

But after loosing to the Atlanta Falcons in the playoffs last year… QB Wilson made special arrangements to attend last year’s Super Bowl.  He even figured out how to be on the field as the teams warmed up.  He walked the halls.  He saw the press. He heard the fans.  

He wanted to see what the Super Bowl experience was like… before he was in it.  He wanted to take it all in. 

He wanted to prepare.  So he got on the “field.”

And based on his performance this year, I’d say that extra level of preparation paid off.  Because he’d been intentional about his preparation he was able to walk into this Super Bowl having a better understanding of what to expect.  It wasn’t his first time to experience it.  So he was more ready.  He was more confident.  And as a result, he brought excellence!  Yup… I love that.

Here’s my question to you:  How could we get YOU “on the field?”

Think about it. 

What’s one of your big goals or dreams?  

Now ask yourself, “How could you get out “on the field” to prepare? 

  • How could you go and see what it’s going to be like? 
  • How could you experience it first hand? 
  • How could you get a real taste of what it’s going to feel like to accomplish that goal?  How could you get ready for the final steps of hitting that target?

How can you get out on the “field” to take it all in and begin to feel like a veteran… even though you might still be a newbie? 

  • Who’s office could you visit? 
  • What building could you explore? 
  • What stage could you walk on to? 
  • Who could you start helping in a small but significant way? 

How about it? 

How could you get on the field now… so that when opportunity knocks… you’re ready? 

Think about it and then “take the field” in your march toward one of your own big dreams!
