There reaches a point in every professional athletic season when it's apparent that some teams are not going to make the post season. It's in that moment that a decision has to be made by each player on that team. They can choose to continue working hard in preparation even though their ultimate goal cannot be reached or take the option of going through the motions and doing just enough to collect a paycheck. Either decision will reveal the depth of character of a person and their true motivation for their profession. Continuing to work with intense focus without immediate reward will often reveal more about a person than their performance in success.

How do you perform when it seems like a season is lost? Do you maintain the same focus when immediate rewards are not as evident? A leader of integrity will commit consistent energy and effort in positive and negative circumstances. Perseverance in adversity will strengthen and reveal our character.
