The Winning Edge Four Things That Can Put You Ahead of the Pack "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." Thomas Edison This powerful, powerful presentation is founded upon the lessons Edwards learned as an athlete and a touring tennis professional. In particular, he focuses on those few (but oh so powerful) things which separate the very top athletes from the rest. These winning edge commodities serve as a template for life; for they are the exact same things which set apart the best from the also-rans in virtually every profession or discipline. Some of the key points covered are: The overlooked power of doing the basics phenomenally well. What are the basics? The myth of instant success....Why American Idol is anything but reality. Learning to distinguish what we can control from what we cannot control and why this is so vitally important. The four things that can put us over the top: Work Harder, Work Longer, Work Smarter, and Work Together. Why each is so critical. This presentation is peppered with historical and present day examples of people who have seen these principles put them over the top.
