Wow. It’s over. The Stanley Cup for 2010 has been won by the Blackhawks.
Now this is not a sports blog per se, so I won’t mention how much I despise the Hawks for beating our beloved Canucks earlier this year…or maybe I will. Better yet maybe I’ll make a video…oh yah, did that too. If you haven’t seen it, here’s a minute and 15 seconds of time that you’ll never get back…
Fun aside, the Hawks Chairman and owner, Rocky Wirtz, was interviewed after tonight’s game. I’m paraphrasing slightly…but the question was, how did you know you were going to win? how could you have set your expectations so high?
I LOVE LOVE LOVE his answer. Mr. Wirtz said, I can tell you this much…if we had set the bar lower, we would have achieved it.
Let that sink in.
If we set the bar low…if we aim low…if our goals are low…we’ll probably achieve low.
If we aim high and don’t achieve the ‘prize’, I guarantee you that we’ll achieve more that we ever thought we could.
Be The Best. What a great example.
