    Marcus Rashfords Lessons To Young Players

    Marcus Rashfords Lessons To Young Players

    Marcus Rashford took to social media to express his thoughts after his missed penalty during one of the biggest football events England has seen since 1966. Rob picks apart Rashfords passage to find the inspirational lessons which are valuable to all young players. He discusses how life is perplexing, why fighting reality is futile, and sister and brotherhoods’ importance.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Life is perplexing. It challenges us, it is a growth thing and it is not always plain sailing.
    Marcus looks at the team he is surrounded by, the brotherhood, team, culture, and relationships. He describes them as unbreakable, and they do not happen overnight.
    In a team sport, if one person succeeds so does everybody else, but if one person fails so does the rest of the team.
    As a young player, be honest and don’t worry about being vulnerable. Take responsibility and do your best but you can never guarantee the outcome. Being honest is freeing and gives you peace of mind.
    Fighting reality is futile. Look beyond the result, have you got a sisterhood/brotherhood, a culture, a teammate bond? The consistency you have is found within your family, community and support networks. These people will continue to support you no matter what, and if you have nothing else, you have that.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “Your success is my success, but if I fail so do you.”

    “He talks about being criticised, well done.”

    “Just do your best.”

    “He knows his career is vulnerable.”

    Your Way, Your Truth, Your Life.

    Your Way, Your Truth, Your Life.

    Have you discovered your own truth? Are you chasing what it is you truly desire? Join Rob as he dives into the importance of knowing who you truly are. Rob discusses understanding your core values, the value of listening to the right people and why only you can walk your journey.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    What is at your core? This question asks us who we are, what we are about and what our real key values are. From that, everything will spring. We cannot have values that are aligned with getting as much as we can personally, for as little effort as possible.
    Who are you listening to? Are you listening to great mentors, people you trust and inspirational people? Or are you still bamboozled by the overwhelming chitchat of colleagues or from social media? Maybe we should filter out the information that we don’t need so that we can be guided.
    Change is uncomfortable and involves a degree of suffering. It often involves loss and you have to prune some things away. We have to choose where we focus our energy, so that the things we focus on can grow and become stronger. Those things have to be what we value, otherwise it won’t work.
    We have to pay a price for what it is we want. Pay your price, it is a non negotiable for you. It is your journey, only you can walk it. You might as well start.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “You should know what the three, four, five or half dozen values are, that you live your life around, because it’s your life.”

    “Maybe we should just filter out what we don’t need anyway.”

    “We cannot be everything to all people, all the time.”

    Owning Your Own Pain

    Owning Your Own Pain

    Join Rob in this inspirational episode as he discusses the importance of recognising the struggles, obstacles and challenges on your journey and the importance of owning your own pain. Discover why your journey is unique to you, why great leaders do not seek glory and why what other people think about you, does not matter.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    Unless you are different from most people, you will have challenges in your life. You will have obstacles and you may feel anger, despondence and you may have felt like you would like to give up. This is all part of our own unique journey.
    You want to be a leader who facilitates great people. The greatest leaders are those who rise and help people become great and who do not even realise that they are being led. Great leaders do not want glory or limelight, they are just doing their job.
    Do not deny your reality. We cannot deal with stuff that we hide away, because it is our own struggle, we have to go within to find the answer.
    Everybody is called from within, it is just that some people do not hear. As it is our own pain, struggle and challenge we have to go through it and come out the other side.
    This is the road to glory, our glory. What other people think does not matter. We can all have wise councils and mentors and such things should be applauded. However, the answer is always to listen to the wise and filter what they say through yourself. Because ultimately, you are the one that hears it. Ask yourself ‘does this path have a heart?’ If so, it is probably the right way.

     

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “They are your challenges, they are not mine, they are yours, they are unique to you.”

    “Without them, your life wouldn't have the meaning that it did.”

    “You want to be a leader who facilitates great people.”

    “Does this path have a heart?”

    The 6 Leadership Necessities From Sebastian Junger

    The 6 Leadership Necessities From Sebastian Junger

    Join Rob today as he discusses the six leadership necessities taken from the inspirational workings of Sebastian Junger, a #1 New York Times best selling author. Rob discusses the ideal community size, why it is important to welcome adversity and why we need to be a part of a community in order to live a successful life. 

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS 
    The greatest happiness comes from groups of people who live and work in numbers of 30-50. If you are looking to create something, you can create a community within your niche of this amount of people. 
    Welcome adversity. Adversity creates team spirit, unselfish and cooperative behaviour. People pull together to find a fortitude and put the group ahead of their own individual needs. That is one of the key things about a successful community. 
    It is morally courageous to stand up, speak your truth and look people in the eye and risk it all. It is not easy to do but it is the right thing. 
    You/We need a community. You cannot live successfully alone either physically or emotionally. We all rely on other people, we cannot do life alone. It is far better and far more successful when you work together. 

    BEST MOMENTS 

    “They put the survival of the group above themselves.”

    “The biggest businesses will not win going forward, the world is changing and it is changing at a pace.”

    “You can be victorious in your niche no matter how small you are.”

    Gareth Southgate's 12 Gems

    Gareth Southgate's 12 Gems

    The Euros are an exciting time for England, and with the country's eyes firmly on England Manager Gareth Southgate, Rob covers 12 of Gareth’s managing gems which you can apply to your own team. Rob discusses the importance of details, why patience is a virtue and how to ensure you always leave things in a better place than what you found them.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    People often say the devil is in the details. There are many times when people will offer a simple solution to a seemingly difficult problem, but think of how much detail goes into fulfilling your daily activities. If you are not detail focused, you will not maximise your time and things will not go as efficiently as you wish.
    One of life's greatest lessons is to teach us patience. How many times have you set a goal and been frustrated that you did not achieve it when you wanted to. We do not know what it will involve to get us from A to B, we just know that that is where we want to go. We then have to traverse the path to get there, and often that path is not a straight one. Understanding this is a great quality.
    People lead in different ways and one thing is for sure, failure will come if you try and emulate somebody else. That does not mean that you should not try and work on your own apparent weaknesses and things that you can improve. It simply means that we all have a certain DNA and when we embody that, we are the best version of ourselves.
    The greatest form of leadership is quiet leadership. The leader disappears, and the team thinks they have done it alone. The team has learnt to do it via the facilitation of a leader that has disappeared into the background like a puff of smoke. This is the ultimate leadership.
    Leave things in a better place than you found them. Leadership is not just about achieving success at all costs, leaving everything chaotic and damaged behind you, it is about leaving things in a better place. How can you leave your team in a better place so that it can move on with a plethora of new players, with a culture in place and how can you contribute towards that. That is a big thing to think about when you are in a leadership position.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “One swing of the sword and everything is solved, wouldn’t life be amazing if that was the case?”

    “We do get there in the end, we just may not get there when we want to.”

    “That is the ultimate leadership.”

    “Winning in a professional sport is everything.”

    Eknarth Easwaran’s Words To Live By (Part 6 of 12)

    Eknarth Easwaran’s Words To Live By (Part 6 of 12)

    Eknarth Easwaran was one of the world's greatest spiritual teachers and authors who educated people on the best way to live their lives freely. In today's podcast, Rob explains Eknarth’s teaching and how you can apply these spiritual teachings to your coaching, leadership and mentoring business. Discover how to accept challenges that come your way, how each person is on their own individual journey and how to find the middle ground that suits you.

     

    KEY TAKEAWAYS
    If you are a leader, manager or a coach somewhere along the line you will have made a conscious or unconscious decision to be in that position. The best thing you can do is lean into the situation and remember that you are on that path. The only thing challenging you now, is your journey ahead of you and by avoiding it, you will only open yourself to having to efface the obstacle later on. It is always about you and you have the power to respond exactly how you want.
    Sometimes it is a great thing to understand that not everyday is going to be a great day. By understanding this, getting on with the mundane aspects and being a good person to the people in your life then you will be grateful for everything you have.
    Remember that we have to deal with obstacles and challenges otherwise we are not growing. We need to manage our own challenges, if we have daily challenges such as nutritional, financial or fitness ones, we have to lean into them and find a way through them. Eknarth says it is by avoiding challenges that we develop challenges for ourselves. Often we have to chunk them down and take them on a little bit at a time to get through them.
    Remember, as much as everybody is the same, we are all so different. The differences may be subtle but everybody is an individual and everybody is on their own path. It is those differences that make us what we are and we have to warm to those differences. Everybody has a unique way of doing things and we have to try and embrace things as best we can. The more we do that, the more people we can relate to.
    It is always about trying to find the middle ground and that sweet spot. The sweet spot is different for everybody and varies at different times of our lives. Remember, we are always just looking for that ‘sweet spot’ if we can help other people find it too, then they will thank you and will see you as a great leader, manager and coach.

     

    BEST MOMENTS

    “The obstacle is the way.”

    “Be the eye of the hurricane.”

    “Strangely enough all the challenges that we face and all the things we think are new to us, are very likely not.”

    “What a blessing that was.”
