Of course encouragement is effective. But how much do you really need it?

The Olympics Opening Ceremony was deathly quiet. The Olympics Tennis games echoed and sounded strange as we heard every breath and grunt from the players. The lack of crowds made it seem like it wasn’t real…but what I am most curious about is how the athletes felt?

Sports teams around the world have been playing in deserted stadiums. Likely very similar to the vacant lonelyness many have felt working from home for the last 18months. 

What I am most curious about is the effect on productivity and performance when you are working in silence. How much do you need a cheering crowd? How much public encouragement do you need? How valuable is the recognition you get from others seeing your achievements?

This past 18 months has allowed us the unusual window into a social experiment of how we work, play, and interact. 

The question to ask yourself is can you perform without the equivalent of a cheering stadium of fans? Are you comfortable enough in your own success to not need others to validate it?

That’s when you truly know that who you are and the impact you have on others is not judged by the cheers, the awards, or the scoreboard but your own belief in yourself.

Dedicated to growing your business,
