“Mahomes” Your Success – Day 252 of 365 Days to a Better You

You miss 100 percent of the shots you don’t take.

Some say Wayne Gretzky said it. Some say Michael Jordan. Regardless of who said it, there’s a lot of wisdom in this simple quote. The odds may be stacked against you and chances of success may be slim, but taking the shot still gives you better odds than not.

It’s a great time to be a lifelong (suffering) Kansas City Chiefs fan. Last year the Chiefs unleashed a phenomenon on the NFL – young quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

People are ooing and awwing over Mahomes and the numbers he’s put up so quickly. I think I’ve uncovered at least part of his secret – he’s not afraid to take the shot.

Even at the NFL level, most quarterbacks and coaches prefer to play it safe. They dink and dunk down the field and that’s kind of been NFL offenses for almost 30 years. Few NFL quarterbacks take more than one or two real shots down the field in a game. Mahomes has been known to do it three or four times in a single drive.

Sometimes he misses or bad things happens but by giving himself chances few other NFL quarterbacks will take, he also finds amazing success. Sure it helps to have one of the best arms around and he has some amazing receivers.

I’m telling you, though, it’s more about the mental side of the game and taking your shote than the physical. The Chiefs’ previous quarterback Alex Jones was a case in point. He was a very competent NFL quarterback. His record as a starter in the NFL is amazing. He’s probably get you to the playoffs seven years out of ten. He, like 90 percent of starting NFL quarterbacks, was rarely willing to take those shots. Something bad might happen. So, he missed 100 percent of those opportunities.

If Mahomes hits two or three of those long passes a game, he’s given his team an advantage few others are even willing to try to match.

Powerhack: Ok. How does Patrick Mahomes’ long scoring plays help you? Think about this related to the opportunities in your life. The average NFL scoring drive is about 10 plays. There’s far more risk of something negative happening over 10 plays than on one play. People don’t take that into account. Mahomes’ approach is big risk, big reward.

Send the opportunities in your life long. Let the pass fly and see what happens! You are going to throw some interceptions and incompletions. It’s OK. You’re also going to score more easy touchdowns that people unwilling to take those chances.

Mahomes frequently puts a couple touchdowns on the other team before they’re warmed up. What could that do for your business, your sales, your life?

He’s only 24 years old, but young Patrick Mahomes fearless, go big approach is a lesson for us all.

If no one else has told you today, YOU ARE AWESOME! Thanks for reading. Please share with a friend if this post spoke to you.

Good Things Ahead for the Kansas City Chiefs

First, congratulations to our adopted hometown team – the New England Patriots – and their fans. What your team has achieved the past 20 years is historic.

Now, I want to talk to my fellow-KC fans. That was exciting and rough all at the same time last night. My thoughts this morning are of the 2015 Kansas City Royals.

That team came to Spring training, months after an equally heart-breaking loss at home in Game 7 of the World Series, with the mindset “We are the best team in baseball.” With the exception of some floundering in September, they were the best MLB team in 2015 from start to finish.

This Chiefs team needs to go home, reflect, and come back next year with that thought. They need to sure up the defense and keep the same pieces in place on offense. If they do, they have to come into next year as a favorite to be back in the AFC Championship game with a wiser and still wildly talented Patrick Mahomes leading the way.

Many great teams almost got there the year before they went on their championship run. It took Michael Jordan and the Bulls a couple of tries to get past the Pistons and Celtics.

Good things are ahead for this Chiefs team. Even the ageless Tom Brady gets a year older next year. Eventually it gets everyone.

With a few tweaks and a we ARE the best team attitude, next year could be amazing! Let’s face it. That attitude is much of the reason the Patriots have the dynasty they have.

I commented on this at the time, but it bears saying it again. I was fascinated when the Chiefs came to Foxboro the opening week of 2017 and beat the Patriots. I paid attention to the response in both cities. In KC, there was a practical “we’re going to the Super Bowl” jubilation. In the Boston Media, there was angst. Yet, the Patriots players and coaches said basically, “Hey, it’s just one game and we’re still the Patriots.”

The Chiefs went home and the Patriots made that Super Bowl too.

The Chiefs need to develop a mindset like that to go with the talent. If they do, they could be hoisting The Lamar Hunt Trophy and sporting Super Bowl champion rings come 2020.

I’m Inspired Today By…The Kansas City Chiefs

Even though I live in Boston now, I lived the first 50 years of my life in Kansas City. I’ve been one of those long-suffering Kansas City Chiefs fans. I was five years old the last time they went to and won the Super Bowl (Super Bowl IV in January 11, 1970).

Three years ago the Kansas City Royals broke a 30-year World Series drought. I’m hoping the Chiefs can repeat the feat. It only took me moving to Boston for them to achieve it.

Today they take on the team from our adopted hometown – The New England Patriots. While the Chiefs haven’t been to the Super Bowl in almost five decades, the Patriots have been in nine in the last 20 years. It’s a a true David vs. Goliath match-up.

The Patriots have Hall-of-Fame bound Tom Brady hoping lead his team to sixth Super Bowl victory versus Patrick Mahomes the young upstart and probable NFL MVP. I was at the first meeting this year in Foxboro. If today’s game is ANYTHING like that, we are all in for a treat!

Hopefully, by day’s end, The Chiefs will be in their first Super Bowl in the memory of yours truly. Patrick Mahomes feels like the real deal and the perfect changing of the guard for Tom Brady.

My prediction: Chiefs 31 Patriots 27.

Enjoy NFL Championship Sunday!
