This country saying holds a lot of meaning in life as well as for business success. The hungrier you are, the more willing you are to take the necessary steps to victory. The drive and desire that inspires you must be ignited to reveal the hunger and lead you to success.
Victory does not come all at once. Victory is achieved through a series of small successful experiences that culminate in winning or achieving your goals and objectives. This is often nicely illustrated during football season. Sometimes in a game, one turnover at a time gives a team momentum and eventually it leads them to victory.
Look for small achievements and successes that can lead you toward your ultimate goal. Each small success will feed the hunger and generate momentum for your business and for your team. Consider your definition of victory. Then, list some small steps that you can take to achieve that victory.
A failure should never deter you from your victory. Instead, a failure should give you pause to think, refocus, and keep your eye on your prize. How focused is your intensity when taking each step? Do the steps provide momentum?
For business success, your entire group must understand the meaning of victory. Be sure to define victory so that everyone will understand what it will mean for them and for your business. Also, have a brainstorming session where you discuss the small successes that will lead the team to victory. Use the questions above to help your team stay focused on their planning and get involved in their respective areas to help the team achieve success. Perhaps it is time to rekindle your group's hunger for victory. Look for ways to feed the intensity and get your team pointed in the right direction.
