“The average NFL play lasts only 5 seconds. The whistle blows. Everyone slows down. The play stops. But, with all of the high intensity and speed during the play – there is actually 1 whole second after the play where action still takes place.
Most of the time theres nothing you can do in that 1 second. In fact 97% of the time nothing happens.
But… 3 times a game…
you will have an opportunity to make a…
GAME CHANGING PLAY!
These game changing plays can be all the difference in winning or losing.
Most people (even professionals) don’t do anything in this last second. They get sucked into the mind set of “nothing is really going to happen – or it doesn’t really matter”. Or they’re just so trained by the sound of the whistle that they automatically stop when they hear it.
If you want to take your performance to the next level. If you want to be one of the very best. You’ve got to train yourself to…
“Go beyond the whistle!”
And, look for places in your life where your competition is slowing down (or where you might have been… ‘trained’ to slow down) and push on even harder in that moment.
You can not stop after 5 seconds when every one else does. You must play beyond the whistle and go full speed for… 6 seconds.
This small, minute, thing (Heck, we are talking about 1 measly second here)… is the difference maker. Giving that extra effort in those ‘ordinary moments’ is what, often times, separates being champion and not being champion.
Can you think of an area of your life where you might be able to chose to ‘play 6 seconds’?
The more you practice playing 6 seconds – you will soon realize that you pay to much of a cost for not playing all 6. This is one of the great secrets of world class competitors.
This is a practice that can be applied to your personal or professional life. Whether you’re in sales or you’re connecting with family. Going that small extra step. Taking just 1 more second. Keeping sharp focus for a few more moments. Adding another push, when everyone else is slowing down. Increasing your effort by just 1%…
Playing 6 seconds day after day…
Will hand deliver you MORE WINS! I can promise you that!
Play 6 my friends.”
