Why the OSU Championship matters to you

You can love the Buckeyes football team, despise them, or quite frankly not care or know what they did.

But here’s why Ohio State’s Championship matters to you.

When it was time for their 2nd string QB to step up when their starter got hurt for the season he did.

When it was time for their 3rd string QB to step up when the 2nd stringer got hurt for the season he did.

Notre Deam coach Brian Kelly described the OSU Coach Urban Meyer’s greatest strength as “Getting all 110 players on his teams year after year to completely buy in to the whole team concept and be locked in for the whole season.”

When they asked Urban Meyer when his 3rd string QB Cardale Jones got “locked in” he said it was when he went through this leadership training program called “E plus R equals O.”

I’ve gone through a one day seminar of the program as well and it’s incredible stuff.  It stands for Events plus Response equals Outcomes.

Things are going to happen in life.  But it’s how you respond that will determine your path.

The events don’t matter.  The responses do.  That’s how you get the outcomes in your life.

One of my favorite quotes a friend always tells me is "10% of life is what happens and 90% is how you respond."

That’s why this team and this championship matters to you.

They proved that it didn’t matter what happened, they were ready to respond.  Every single person in that locker room was locked in and when it was their time to step up they were ready.

They all knew their turn was now and they took it and went for it.

Now it’s your turn.  What are you going to do?

Let the events dictate what happens to your life OR instead choose the responses to those events and get the outcomes you deserve.  The Efficiency Recipe or my books are a great place to start.

It’s time.  Let’s go! (And I’ll throw in a Go Bucks and congrats to those players and coaches for what they did this season.  Absolutely remarkable stuff.)

Thanks for being a part of the crew…passionate living awaits my friend…go after it.
