To be a good leader, one must mainly be a great motivator, and it is a motivator for many things, being a connoisseur of his team, to know each other as Tatar and especially to make the most of its people in the most extreme situations.
Such is the case you will see in paragraph 12, the rest of the phrases I have been using throughout my life as a leader of teams:
1. No matter how many times you fall but how to be able to get up
2. Learn from your mistakes, analyze them, looking for causes and is able to transform them into strengths
3. When I say you cannot do something, and no other person interrupting you saying that it is made
4. To achieve success do not pretend suddenly, gradually planting to finally collect the desired fruit
5. Failure is hard, no doubt about it, but try not to pasarsete even the head
6. If you do not value you, it never will value your time, and, until your time values will never do anything with it. And the time is the most valuable thing you have
7. Learn to listen, do it, that’s why we have two ears and one mouth, so listen twice as much as we speak
8. The secret of success is to have confidence in you. If you can and if you can do it, but do it now
9. If you do what you’ve always done will not get further away from what you’ve always gotten. Do more and you will get far?
10. Against stage fright are two good antidotes, knowledge and action, constantly learns and applies this knowledge
11. If you are able to challenge a big failure, you can certainly get a great success
12. All good motivator should be learned almost by heart this text is a fragment obtained in full of the film Any Given Sunday Al Pacino:
The truth is I do not know what to say. We have three minutes to the biggest battle of our professional lives. It comes down to today. Or remake us as a team or we fell apart. Inch by inch, play by play, till we’re finished, we are in hell, gentlemen. Believe. And we can stay here and give us a fucking beating, or we can fight and fight our way back into the light. We can get the hell out inch by inch.
I cannot do for you. I’m too old. I look around, I see these young faces and I think. I mean I have taken almost all the wrong decisions a middle-aged man can make. I, uh I polished it all my money, believe it or not. I turned my back to anyone who ever loved me. And lately I cannot even look in the mirror.
Do you know? When you get older you take everything. It’s part of life. But you only learn that when you start losing stuff. You find out that life is a game that is measured in centimeters.
So is football because every game, in life or football, the margin for error is so tight. I mean half a step too late or too early and not get; half second too slow or too fast and did not catch him. The inches we need are everywhere. They’re in every break of the game, every minute, every second.
On this team we fight for that inch. On this team we tear and we destroy the entire world around us for that inch. We scratch with our fingernails for that inch. Because we know that adding all those extra inches we will make the fucking difference between WINNING and LOSING between LIVING and DYING.
Listen to what I say in any battle is the guy who is willing to die who is going to win that inch. And I know if I will live a little longer is because I keep the will to fight and die for that inch, because that’s LIFE, the six inches in front of you.
I cannot force you to do so. You have to look at the type you have by your side. Look at him in the eyes. You see someone who will go that inch with you. You see someone who will sacrifice himself for this team because he knows when the time comes; you will do the same for him.
That’s a team, gentlemen. Or remake us now, as a team, or we fell apart as individuals. That’s football, guys. Nothing more, tell me, what do you do?
