Turnovers

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 7:07 am

A big part of the game of football is turnovers. That’s when the ball unexpectedly gets turned over to the other team, usually due to an error on one player’s part. It’s often the deciding play as to who wins the game.

It seems to me that life is filled with turnovers – times when we drop the ball and lose.

It’s tempting to look around and look for someone else to blame it on, but the instant replay clearly shows that we were at fault no matter how many different angles we view it from.

When you turn the ball over, you are at a choice point. You get to choose whether you will defend your mistake (often referred to as doubling down) or you will make every effort to recognize your error and take steps not to repeat it in the future.

Have you recently dropped the ball? Are you going to drop it again? It really depends on the choice you make now.

Are you willing to continually give yourself a pass for your fumbles, or will you commit to a series of actions that will curtail future drops?

These are questions we are faced with every day. We all drop the ball and we all have a choice as to how we will handle the drop. Will it be more denial or a path forward?

The path forward has one key ingredient – Action!

You can have countless conversations with yourself (pep talks) planning how you’re going to hold onto the ball in the future, but talks without action will truly earn you the nickname of “Butterfingers.”

If hanging your head in shame were a remedy, we would have eradicated turnovers a long time ago.

“What steps am I going to take now that will prevent dropped balls in the future?” is the only remedy you need.

If you are planning on a different future without taking action now, it’s no different than reviewing a video of an old football game again expecting a different outcome.

The tried and true way to overturn turnovers is to take action now.

 

All the best,

John
