Bringing your game face

Ireland v Wales, Six Nations 2014

Six Nations 2014.

Ireland V Wales.

Front row (seats, not player!).

5 yard line…

I was conscious that there was a slight chance my face might appear on the big screen.. subconsciously I had myself prepared, and yes, in the 67th minute there I was!

Within 20 seconds my phone had lit up…7 new texts. And it wasn’t just me, my husband Eoin and my friend Jess were ‘famous’ too.

Perth, Canada, Johannesburg, Cape Town, and even the Cayman Islands… friends worldwide had spotted us, and they let us know…. and this made me think.

Even unbeknownst to us, someone is always watching, analysing, and more than likely judging (be it positively or negatively). You need to look like you’re meant to be there, know exactly what you’re doing, and are in complete control.

Whether in a work situation, or in personal circumstances, a certain amount of awareness won’t ever go astray.

Benjamin Franklin once said By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”, and I think he had it sussed… sounds like he always brought his game face.

Do you?
