Out of all the webinars that I listened to, this one was my favorite. There were so many catchy phrases that were simple yet powerful. Like "take carefully calculated risk," "look for a need," and the ways to five championships. The five championships were:
1)" We NOT Me."
2)" Don't play with snakes."
3)" Attitude and Effort."
4)" Expect to W.I.N." (What's Important Now)
5)" Focus on the final score" (final destination)
As there are ways and discipline to a sports championship, there are also things to keep in mind to succeed in the hospitality and tourism industry (and life). Another thing that stood out to me was the kind of players in a game. There were three types of players mentioned: one on the sideline, the one in the game waiting, and the player that wants the ball when the game is on the line. This was another analogy related to the HTM industry, as we must strive to be like the third type of player. This type of player is not content and overcomes obstacles. They seize the opportunity and take calculated risks! Examples of these types of players are Micheal Jordan and Samuel the Lamanite. They act as the "go-to" guys. I wasn't able to ask a question because of time, but here is one of the questions that were answered:
Q: Are you doing what you can?
A: Strive to be perfect. Perfect doesn't mean sinless. Perfect = Complete
This was an insightful webinar, and I am glad that I was able to attend!
