The usually stoic New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady steps to the microphone Sunday grinning like a schoolboy after one of the ugliest wins in his 14 year history.
The Patriots played terribly
Until they were down by two touchdowns
With less than three minutes to play.
They manufacture a win.
And here’s the thing:
Tom Brady carried none of the 57 minutes of
Into his post game press conference.
“That was awesome” he grinned gleefully.
I’ve never seen him so giddy.
And it gets me thinking about your Elevator Pitch.
Because Tom Brady had plenty to complain about.
Instead, he’s genuinely excited about the win.
And I see so many business professionals
Get so wrapped up
In the frustrations of networking.
The unreturned calls.
That they completely ignore the wins.
The new contacts
The new opportunities
The new clients
Are much more interesting
Than the frustrations.
Networking is enjoying your wins.
So instead of sharing frustration,
Share the wins.
Your client success stories.
