Have a listen to San Francisco 49ers coach, Mike Singletary talking on the BBC Sport Website. There’s some very simple, high performance thinking in here that can relate to anyone who has to deliver at a consistently high level. Ask yourself some questions to see if you fit with Mr Singletary’s view of greatness:

Are you clear in letting people know what you won’t do, rather than what you can’t do?

Do you accept the challenge of striving to become the best version of yourself that you can and then behave consistently to deliver on those personal aspirations?

If someone was watching you deliver a performance, would you stand out as the obvious person that someone else would want on their team? Are your actions delivered with the confidence and control to set you apart from those around you?

Good food for thought. Thank you Mr Singletary.
