Key No 3. What Can Your Business Learn From UFC’s Georges St. Pierre

Doing anything worthwhile takes time, effort and stamina. ~ Hugh MacLeod

The world is full of stupid and savvy, talented and mediocre, well educated and illiterate successes and failures.

Would you know one if you saw it?

When two men step into the Octagon to fight one another, 9 times out of 10, the one thing that makes the most difference is the fighter’s presence of the mind and STAMINA.

The mind and stamina are closely related and one will either support or betray the other.

When fighters step into the cage they often experience something called the Adrenaline Dump.

Tiger attacking human. You will need all the adrenaline you can muster.

This is the ancient reflex designed to save us from a dangerous situation.

The problem is that after the adrenaline had swept across your nervous system you are left with very little stamina and still 4 minutes and 30 seconds on the clock.

Would you like me to kick your ass now or right now?

Norm Larsen had UFC Level Stamina

Norm Larsen showed stamina when he concocted a spray that was later used to protect the Atlas missile from rust and corrosion.

It’s the same spray you might have in your garage right now. WD-40.

Larsen went through 39 unsuccessful iterations of the formula before achieving results.

Hence the name. Water Displacement- 40th attempt.

Ian Welmut had UFC Level Stamina

Ian Welmut showed stamina when he achieved something few others thought possible -outside of Science Fiction- back in 1996.

It took 277 unsuccessful attempts to “give birth” to the world’s most famous sheep; but Dolly the sheep was a healthy clone that proved a single cell can be used to recreate a whole individual.

Dolly was named after the very blond and famously curvaceous country western singer.

Yup. Nine times out of 10 it’s the stamina that makes the difference.

The man that never seam to run out of it is UFC’s Georges St. Pierre. He fights in the 5th Championship round the same way he fights in the first round.

So who’s gonna have more stamina. You or your competition?

    Dino,
    Being a UFC and GSP fan, I like the analogy made here. It’s so true though, so many people don’t have the stamina to make their online businesses succeed. GSP is a master of his craft and I think to be a highly successful blogger, we need to have the same mentality.
