Beckham Effect

Here I want to talk to you about setbacks.

We all have them at some point, not just driving, it could be dieting, ice skating, trying to close that next deal, just about anything you can think of.

So how do you deal with setbacks? How do you deal with failure?

David Beckham, one of the greatest players of our time has had more setbacks than you may think, when he goes onto the pitch he does not score every time, he has missed more goals than he has ever scored, yet he is one of the greatest players, so what does he do differently than the rest of us?

Most of us though tend to give up or become disillusioned we tend to feel bad about ourselves or we try to place the blame on others, David Beckham does not deal with it that way, he just keeps on trying until he scores.

He may get lucky with some games when he scores first time, sure but this does not happen every time, he just keeps on trying that’s why David Beckham is one of the greatest players today he keeps going, if it works for him it will work for you in all areas of your life.

It's very difficult to beat someone who never gives up, remember that, it's good advice, it's stood the test of time.

There is nothing new in this, this is just my updated version of the war time slogan, “keep calm and carry on” no doubt you have come across this saying at sometime in your life.

So the next time you are reversing around that corner, or that reverse park, remember just carry on try again, you will be surprised at what you can achieve.

Have a look at the late Bruce Lee he had setbacks when he was filming a fight scene in the game of death, how many takes did it take him to get it right? Remember that when you are faced with a challenge.

Have a look at what Michael Jordan has to say about setbacks.
