Beckham in awe after ‘I am Bolt’

first_imgFormer England football captain David Beckham has praised multiple Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt after watching his documentary I Am Bolt. Beckham, the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star, posted on his Instagram page yesterday stating that he believes everyone, including aspiring athletes, can learn from Bolt’s journey. He also describes the film as a must-see. “I have just watched I Am Bolt and I know I posted before about the fastest man in the world and friend but if you haven’t seen this please you must,” Beckham said. “Yes, as we know, Usain is fast, really fast. We know Usain is Jamaican, but what we all learn and what all the aspiring athletes can learn is to work hard, be dedicated, and be honest. “This is a man that has his friends close, he has his family close. Usain is humble, humble to the point he brings me to tears when speaking and when winning races. There is no doubt he is the greatest and there is no doubt this man is the most humble athlete genius you will meet.” I Am Bolt premiered in the United Kingdom on November 28 at the Odeon Leicester Square cinemas and in Jamaica last Tuesday night at the National Indoor Sports Complex. The film showcases the life of the world’s fastest man and his journey to becoming a nine-time Olympic champion. Bolt recently said the purpose of the documentary is to impact lives and inspire others by the way he achieved his success.last_img read more

Sales Doesn’t Need to Become a Profession. It Already Is.

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now Sales does not need to become a profession. Sales already is a profession. Even if there are not hundreds of university courses. Even if there are not degree programs on professional selling. Even if there is wild disagreement as to what would make sales an actual profession, like a doctor, lawyer, or certified public accountant.There are thousands of people who get an MBA (Master’s of Business Administration) as part of their professional development as a manager. Does that impact the quality of managers? Are all managers that go through a professional course better managers for having done so? Or, are some managers far better than others, even without the degrees? Is someone somehow more virtuous, more moral, or even more effective because they have a certificate that says they are certified?Doctors are professionals. So are lawyers. So are accountants. All of these are so-called professions. Just because all doctors are required to go to school for more years than almost any other profession does not mean there’s an improvement in the professionalism of the field generally. The effectiveness is distributed in the form of a bell curve, with some being exceptional, some abysmal, and most something close to average. This is true, even though they took the course and got the sheepskin.Whether or not something is your profession is a personal decision you make. It’s a continuous development and honing of your craft. It’s the commitment to excellence and how you go about your work in the outcomes you produce. It’s the intentional decision to be a professional. The diploma, the certification, or the professional organization does no more to make you a professional then the ticking alarm clock gave the Tin Man a heart. You are a professional because you believe and behave as if you are one. Nothing more is neededlast_img read more
