Yesterday Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos did it again with their improbable overtime playoff victory over the Pittsburg Steelers.
For the past week I listened to countless analysts say that the game would literally determine Tebow’s future as a football player. Deliver a victory and live to fight another day, or loose and “There’s the door.”
There is an old saying, “Pressure busts pipes.” While the statement is true, there is another side to pressure.
Pressure also reveals character. It literally makes diamonds.
As a leader, your character is revealed most when you face adversity, challenge, and temptation . . . all forms of pressure.
Are you passing the test?
The thing I love about Tebow is that he breaks the character mold as much as he does the football mold.
I hope you have the character to break the mold this week and stand up to the pressure you will face in your environment. If not, today would be a great time to focus on growing your integrity.
What is your impression of Tim Tebow?
