Backing your talent

Thanks to a bet placed in 1992, Mr. Eddie Kirkland has won 10,000 GBP or about $19,000 U.S..  The bet? 

That his son, Chris, would play for the England national football team before he was 30.  Today, Chris Kirkland, on loan at Wigan from Liverpool, was brought on as a substitute in England’s win over Greece and the drinks are on Eddie! 

I think that you can draw a lot of parallels with business from sport – probably why so many senior execs had fledgling sporting careers – but the biggest one is confidence. 

If you’re confident and work hard, things will happen for you.  And nothing builds confidence more than having someone you love and respect back you to the hilt.
