No one wants to be hurt that everyone says they want to be the best or, at least, better than most.
The problem is that usually fear gets in the way and shows up in the form of risk mitigation.
Everything is measured.
Everything is evaluated.
Everything is calculated.
All the while, while you do that, you are keeping the foot on the brake.
You can’t win and become a champion with 1 foot on the brake.
Leadership involves recognizing when it is to take your foot off the brake and go for it.
Champions now the when they get into complicated situations, they can navigate their way through them.
As I’ve said before, winners find the way to win. Losers have excuses and explanations.
