On this episode of The Alliance Activity podcast, Andy Albright wants to talk about what it takes to be a winner. The Alliance loves winners. And by winners, that means people that are fanatical about winning. They love to win. They don’t give up. They strive to do their best, and they empower others to do the same. They are committed to winning.

It is more about opportunity and support and less about talent. On page 15 of “Outliers” by Malcom Gladwell, he writes about oak trees growing in the forest.  The tallest oak in the forest is the tallest not just because it grew from the hardest acorn; it is the tallest also because: No other trees blocked its sunlight. The soil was rich around it and deep. No rabbit chewed through its bark when it was a sapling. No lumberjack cut it down before it matured.

We all know that winners come from hardy seeds. But, do we know about the sunlight that warmed them, the soil in which they put down roots and the rabbits and lumberjacks that were lucky enough to avoid them?

Let’s look at this deeper. Sunlight is opportunity. Each year there is a Winter Solstice - it occurs when one of the earth’s poles has its maximum tilt from the sun. The shortest day of the year is seven hours and 49 minutes – marking the start of winter. Even on the shortest day of the year, we have seven hours and 49 minutes to get it done.

Attachment (assimilating) causes or contributes to conformity (peer pressure) and overcomes disfunction. When you add that with commitment (dedication) it causes or contributes to obedience (loyalty) and overcomes deviation.

The soil is our support. The external involvement (association) means working with like minds and causes. It contributes to connection (routine) and overcomes distractions. When you add this to internal belief, it gives a higher purpose (trust) in what’s right or causes and contributes to morality (moral compass) and overcomes detractors.

What about luck? We call it being blessed. This is a label that points out an event’s positive and negative effects. These improbable events happen by random chance … or do they?

Winners know how to take a seed, put it in the ground and put it in an environment where it can grow!

The four Ds to avoid if you want to succeed: Dysfunction, Deviation Distractions and Detractors.

When you can get rid of these things in your life or a person’s life, you are setting up the recipe for success. You can create bonds with people that allow them to grow like that giant oak tree that somehow made it way up high when so many other trees fell short. Creating great bonds with people will help people win.
