Lessons from the Last Dance
Like many of you we have been watching the last dance documentary the last couple of weeks. For those that don’t this documentary talks about Michael Jordan and his career. The basketball highlights draw us in and bring awe at Michael’s skills on the court. We also get to see a lot of the behind the scenes of the team practicing and how Michael acted and felt during different times in his life. It is exciting to watch each new episode and as we get to work on Monday we discuss the inspiring thing that Michael did, said, or reacted to a particular situation.
One big reason I love watching this documentary is to see the attitude of Michael and what he does to win championships. It is also inspiring to see his work ethic as one of the best basketball players of all time. He has a never quit mentality and he would push himself and his teammates as far as he could to bring out the best in himself and those around.
One such story came from last nights episode. The Bulls lost to the up and coming Orlando Magic. This lost really stung Michael as he lost to his former teammate, Horace Grant, who he had won 3 championships with before. With the start of the off-season it would have been easy for Michael to justify taking some time off to relax before preparing for the next season. He didn't do that. The next day he was working out and practicing to get ready for the next season. Along with that he had a busy summer filming the movie Space Jam. However, even with a busy filming schedule he spent his lunches working out for 2 hours. He also spent his nights playing against the best NBA players for almost 3 hours. He worked tirelessly that summer to get into shape and be prepared to win the next season. His hard work payed off because the next season they did win the championship.
Watching Michael Jordan really shows what it means to not just work hard but work tirelessly to achieve your goals. It has made me think about my goals of what I want to achieve. I definitely don't put as much effort as Michael does. I want you to think about your goals. What resolutions did you make in the New Year that were pushed to way side? It is not too late to work for your goals. Maybe it is working out or building a business. Maybe it is spending more time with the family or cleaning out the house. Maybe it is getting through school or trying to get that promotion. Or maybe it is to get out of pain or back to doing your hobby. Whatever your goal is work each day for it. Don't just work hard, work tirelessly for your goals.
