“I feel like we can run the table.”
That’s what Green Bay Packers’ Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said week 10 of the NFL season.
At the time, the Packers were a paltry 4-6 and in danger of missing the playoffs.
Everyone—analysts, fans, critics—was pronouncing them dead in the water.
After Rodgers’ declaration, though, something downright magical happened.
The Packers won their final six games of the regular season, finishing 10-6. They not only made the playoffs, but also won their division.
During the Packers’ regular-season win streak, Rodger’s stats were ridiculously great:
- 15 touchdown passes
- 71% pass completions
- A 121 Quarterback Rating
- And ZERO interceptions
That’s practically unheard of, even for an elite NFL quarterback.
Rodgers making good on his promise—and doing it in style—surprised everyone… except for Rodgers and the rest of the Packers.
That’s because Rodgers understands the power of positive thinking.
It might sound cheesy, but believing in yourself is one of the keys to unqualified success.
When you have TRUE faith in your abilities—and you tell yourself that you ARE great and that you CAN step up to any challenge, no matter how daunting—you’ll be flat-out amazed at what you can accomplish.
It’s like some hidden, dormant part of your brain awakens. Your self-assurance will shoot through the roof. You’ll feel unstoppable.
Plus, positive thinking is contagious. Put yourself in a positive mindset, and watch it spread to your employees.
Aaron Rodgers is the leader of the Green Bay Packers. He’s the guy the other 52 players on the team look to for inspiration and guidance.
So when Rodgers says he believes his Packers can run the table, his teammates gain a huge confidence boost. “If our leader believes in me, then I believe in me.”
And this positive thinking is still working for the Packers well into the playoffs—they sent my Dallas Cowboys (the #1 seed) packing in dramatic fashion.
When you inspire your own team with the power of positive thinking, they’ll start to put in more effort, work smarter, and become more loyal.
And when you AND your team tackle the job with a positive mindset, that’s when you can achieve Aaron Rodgers “run-the-table”-type success.
