“Remember that there are many people who think they want to be matadors, only to find themselves in the ring with two thousand pounds of bull bearing down on them, and then discover that what they really wanted was to wear tight pants and hear the crowd roar.” ~Terry Pierce
The above quote is fantastic to discuss with family, friends, and colleagues. In all aspects of your life (personal and professional), you can show how this concept applies. Many people say they are “leaders” until the time comes to lead against the beliefs of the majority. Others talk about how they would succeed during times of pressure that other individuals collapse under – until you give them a ONE CHANCE opportunity to prove themselves (no mistakes allowed).
When you see an exciting opportunity ahead of you, ask yourself, “Do I want to be a Matador or do I simply want to wear the tight costume and hear the roar of the crowd?” In the “LEAVE A COMMENT” section below, share your ideas for how family members, friends, and colleagues can use this quote to create positive change in ANY area of life (professional or personal). Lets see how many situations we can think of for parents, students, colleagues, educators, and more . . . By sharing below, we will give each other some great dinner table/water fountain TALKING POINTS!
P.S. This post is NOT condoning bull fighting or violence against any animal!! The lesson in the quote is the focus of this posting.
