I was watching the downhill skiing at the Olympics this past week and couldn’t help but notice that as the skiers went through the corners how much they were actually on the edge of the skis. Being on the edge of the skis is what gives them speed. Being on the edge is what gives them the edge.
In your business being on the edge gives you speed. If you are going to have the “speed edge” you cannot have fear. Having the fear of being on the edge is what may be holding you back.
When you ski on the edge you’re going to fall. It’s hard to tell how far you can go until you fall once in a while. Falling helps you find the “real edge.” Finding the “real edge,” is what makes you better and actually gives you the edge.
Not being on the edge is skiing on the flat part of the ski. Being on the flat part of the ski slows you down. Are you skiing on the flat part of success?
Every once in a while you need to let it hang out on the edge. Let the skiing on the edge begin. That’s all I’m gonna say, Tommy Gibbs
