Leadership and Perseverance

We at Get It live here in Denver, and the number one topic of conversation around here for the past week has been the promotion of Tim Tebow to the starting quarterback of the Denver Broncos. 

And to be sure, his first game was quite a bit short of a thing of art.  For 57 minutes he and the rest of the team looked out of sync, uncertain, and at times, completely inept.  And then Tebow and the rest of the team managed to string together three minutes of absolutely inspired football to tie the game and send it to overtime, where they managed to win it.

57 minutes of garbage–at that point a lot of people would be so consumed with self-doubt that they wouldn’t be able to function.  But one of the great qualities of people who Get It is that they persevere: they keep coming back and striving for the goal even after being turned away many times.

And in that persevering, they show others the way to persevere; and when many strive together to overcome great odds, it creates a synergistic momentum towards accomplishment; that inspiration, to become more than they could be alone, is the essence of leadership.
