I’m not always the first to find great TV shows. In fact, I kind of prefer it that way. I’d rather wait for a season or two to air, then watch them on Netflix. It’s nice to watch the episodes without having to wait a week in between to see what’s going to happen!

One of the shows that I recently “discovered” was Friday Night Lights. I remember seeing the promos when it first started airing, but I’m not a teenager and I’m not into football, so I never bothered watching it.

When I started seeing some of my friends post great things about it on Facebook, I decided to give it a chance. And I’m really glad I did.

The show is much more than teenagers and football. The plot is wrapped around the lives of the characters, and these characters face problems; sometimes very big ones. Problems that don’t get fixed in just one episode. They don’t have perfect lives. They don’t win every game.  I found the way that these characters reacted to these situations to be very inspiring.

In a lot of ways, it’s kind of like your business. You have good days, you have bad days. The way you react to that is going to decide your long-term outcome.

Another inspiring note: I was never really into football. I was never on a sports team. Watching the dedication these players and coaches have was a bit eye-opening. I know this is a fictional show, but there are teams in all types of sports out there who do practice every day and have that kind of dedication. If you put half that amount  of dedication into your business, you’ll see a big improvement in your business this year!

If you’ve never watched the show, definitely give it a chance. It’s entertaining – but hopefully, it’ll inspire you to be a better person & more active in your business, too!
