There are numerous ways our Equilibrium Marketing Solutions associates drum up motivation. Considering the similarities between business and athletics, we’re especially fond of the advice sports’ legends have to offer. Here are several messages that inspire and energize us.
At Equilibrium Marketing Solutions, we believe that anything worth doing is worth doing right. When things get tough, Hall of Fame Quarterback Joe Namath helpfully reminds us of this belief. He once said, “If you aren’t going all the way, why go at all?” We ask this question of one another – and answer it – in the face of the most trying circumstances.
Other wise words help us navigate obstacles as well. According to Michael Jordan, for example, “Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.” In the same vein, baseball great Tommy Lasorda said, “In baseball and in business, there are three types of people. Those who make it happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder what happened.”
Finally, we at Equilibrium Marketing Solutions have learned to never underestimate the value of hard work. As the former Yankee taught us, “There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.”
