Doing things really well over time is hard. Operating at a championship level of performance and leadership consistently is an evolving journey, one that will go through peaks and valleys. Chris Paul helped advance his Phoenix Suns team to the NBA Finals. This is Paul’s 16th year in the league and his first trip to the finals. In one of the most elite environments in the world, Paul has had the resilience and persistence to arrive at his shot at a title after years of falling short. (In clinching game vs the Clippers Paul had 41 points and 0 turnovers…no big deal.)
Paul’s game, his approach to his body, and his leadership tactics with teammates have all evolved over the years. His leadership this year with the Suns has proved pivotal with younger star players on the roster like Ayton and Booker. He eats a plant based diet because he knows that age and injury could shorten his career if he doesn’t take the necessary steps. He trains like he isn’t an All-Star.
Let Paul’s 16 year career of grinding be an example to us. It takes time. You won’t always win. Elite success is hard, every day. If you stick with it, you might have a shot. You are stronger than you realize, but you must prepare and execute at a high level consistently.
Enjoy watching Paul lead his team vs the Bucks in the Finals. The best of 7 series begins tonight at 9pm.
