I was thinking about (Super Bowl MVP) Aaron Rodgers on my drive in to work this morning, and about all of the work and little moments that lead up to HIS BIG MOMENT.
Here’s a quote from Aaron Rodgers from somewhere between 2005-2007 when he was a backup to Brett Favre and had to step in during a game:
“…that’s what a backup needs to do – be ready at any time. On this team, with Brett Favre in charge, that doesn’t happen much, but if I am the No. 2 guy, I’ll definitely be ready.”
I mean, take a look at his career stats for the first 3 years of his career:
3 years, 7 games, 1 touchdown, 1 interception.
But what the stats don’t show are the thousands of hours of practice time as a backup, the thousands of hours in the gym working out, the thousands of hours of film study and game planning, and the thousands of times where he probably wondered if he was ever going to get his shot and make the most of it.
ESPN doesn’t track them, but those are the stats from 2005-2007 that actually mean something.
Your Big Moment is coming. It probably won’t be quite as big as Aaron’s was yesterday, but it is coming.
The question is, will you be ready?
Are you putting in the work today/this week/this month to make the most of the moment when it comes?
Whether you have been or not, today’s a fresh start to do it right.
