As a collision repair instructor, I’ve noticed there are 3 basic types of students. However, these 3 types are not just collision repair students, but everyone fits into one of these 3 categories. Which one do you fit in?
Watch this video of a small girl playing football, then we’ll discuss the 3 types of people.
This type of person is excellent at hunting and always find what they are looking for. Well, they find excuses to support why they can’t succeed. You know, I’m sick, I’m too tired, I’m broke, I can’t concentrate, I’m bored, etc. These people usually have the most distractions like: friends, home problems, cell phone, Facebook, etc.
The hunter is very successful at one thing! Finding the reason they can’t do something or being distracted by everything else around them.
This type of person shows up on time and get’s the job done, but with as little effort as possible. Passing a class without learning or having to study is their goal. This type of person does not have to make an A, as long as they can pass the class. They are the kings or queens of mediocracy.
The coaster is happy and satisfied to settle for average. They will do what asked of them, but don’t expect more.
This type of person determines what goals are important to them and strive to do their absolute best to achieve those goals. It’s not about what all they do at school or at their job, as they are working just as hard and learns new things on their own time, not just when asked by others. Why…because they love what they do and success is not an option….it’s a must!
The winner feels they never know enough and always have room for improvements. They are always looking for ways to learn and improve and always strive to do their absolute best.
If a little girl can do it, so can you. Maybe it’s not football for you, but whatever you are passionate about. I watched this video and it inspired me. Obviously, she is fast and talented, but she must have a bad memory, as she forgot all excuses of why a small girl can’t be the star player on an all boys football team. I’d say she is focused and performs her absolute best on the field.
So where do you fit in…Are you a hunter, coaster or winner?
Doing Your Best
When you do your absolute best, good things happen. It’s like the saying, “The Harder I Work, The Luckier I Am”. For a 9 year old girl playing football, Sam Gordon is on national news programs like Good Morning America and she is on the Wheeties box. Sam has already achieved more than most of us do in a lifetime.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiqxdWDNZhE
