Winning Is Like Science!


Dan Blanchard bestselling author, award-winning speaker, and educator and TV host.

Have you ever heard of potential energy? How about kinetic energy? What about the laws of science that say an object at rest tends to stay at rest, and an object in motion tends to stay in motion? Of course, you have! Anybody who has ever attended school has at least heard of these laws of science.

So now you’re probably wondering what science has to do with winning, aren’t you? Well, the simple answer is EVERYTHING!

Imagine trying to push a stalled car. The hardest part of pushing a car at rest is to get it out of a dead stop. Once we budge that car just a little bit and the tires start to slowly roll then even a 2,000-pound automobile becomes easy to continue to push and move, right?  The hardest part of pushing the stalled car is the beginning. The rest of the motion becomes easy due to momentum or kinetic energy.

Well, I’m here today to tell you about your potential energy and that establishing behaviors and habits of leadership and winning are also difficult at first. But, once we initiate a pattern of productive behaviors, we’ll gain some momentum, and then leadership and winning will come quicker and easier than it did before. You see, leadership and winning are just like pushing that car, hard at first and then much easier afterward.

So the biggest obstacle is really in just getting started. Now that we know this, we can no longer let the START stop us. We can no longer just let life happen. We shouldn’t blindly turn over control of our future, our dreams, and our destiny to our own weak and flawed human natural tendencies of laziness and indifference when dealing with our own stalled progress.
