Four Things We Can Learn From World Cup Champions

by Lauren Henderson


  1. Perfect your craft

If you don’t know who Abby Wambach is, where have you been? She’s a forward and team captain on the Women’s National Team and while a natural born athlete, Wambach says she’s had to push herself to the level she’s at. She didn’t win the world eating junk food and sitting on the couch. You won’t have increased sales without improving your skills under the hood. Want to be elite in this business? Train hard.

  1. No excuses

Christie Rampone is 40 years old, a mom of two and just won a World Cup for the U.S. Put your excuses away. You’re never too old, too busy or too tired for things you really want to do.

  1. Teamwork wins championships

Carli Lloyd’s hat trick in the first-half of the history making game on Sunday evening was no doubt a showstopper but there was a defender out on the field doing her part too. St. Louis, Missouri native and defender, Becky Sauerbrunn has been called one of the most underrated players on the team but against Japan she played a full 90 minutes and won a World Cup. That’s not underrated, that’s teamwork and teamwork will get you on top and keep you there — in sports and business.

  1. Respect your opponent

Right after their 5-2 win against Japan, midfielder, Megan Rapinoe said, “[It feels] so good. To be honest I think it’s less about beating them — they’re such a class side. I spoke with a few of them I played with after and they’re nothing but gracious — and more about achieving our own goal.” Learn from your competition, see what they do well, what they don’t, network and achieve your own goals!
