Competitive Greatness

Mark JohnsonCompetitive Greatness, as Coach John Wooden describes it, is A real love for the hard battle, knowing it offers the opportunity to be at your best when your best is required. There are a lot of factors at play in our competitive world today the economy, the internet, and certainly the other embroidery, screen printing and promotional product companies that we face every day. My question is, Are you passionate enough about the competitive journey to build a successful business? The great competitors who I have known all share a joy from the struggle or journey it takes to win. But its not the victory that makes them successful, its the satisfaction that comes from putting in that supreme effort it takes to win. The extra hours, the motivation that you give to others, the hard work that goes into building something special. That is where the true victory lies, in the self satisfaction of knowing that you summoned your best effort to compete on the highest level. Are you doing the things necessary to compete in todays world? Are you marketing your business every day, looking for new employees every day, motivating others every day? We are in a great business we get to help other people with their businesses and make their companies or organizations more successful. What a great thing! But we need to compete every day. In my view, there is nothing tiresome in the old adage, When the going gets tough, the tough get going. But this doesnt have to be something that isnt enjoyed. If you are putting in your best effort there is a tremendous self satisfaction in the building of your business. Work hard and have fun with the journey. Mark Johnson President EmbroidMe
