It’s often been said that it takes a particular individual to spearhead a company into the future, an individual who can take the lumps and still manage to find a way to forge ahead, an individual who will never waver in the face of even the mightiest competition. If that sounds familiar, it’s because the most successful business leaders have a mindset that’s very similar to that of a successful athlete.

Physical strength isn’t enough for an athlete to emerge victorious. The mental fortitude and the competitive spirit that comes along with training and preparing every day is a combination that can be brought into the business setting. In fact, this kind of mentality can give business leaders all the edge in the world.
Now aside from grit and determination, athletes and business leaders also need to know the arena in which they’re competing from the inside out. Without this knowledge, preparation will only be half-complete. For athletes, it’s the sport. For business leaders, it’s the industry. All the information gathered in their respective fields can aid them in their planning ahead.
On the flip-side, business leaders who lack all these, or have a diminished capacity when it comes to determination doom their company from the onset. Without the commitment to soldier forth day in and day out, and create a lifestyle revolving around their business, a company owner is sure to take the ship down with them.
