5 Ways to Think like a NY (New You) Giant

In her book Return to Love, Marrianne Williamson wrote, "You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you." So in light of the New York Giants Super Bowl victory, here are 5 ways to stop thinking small and start thinking like a giant.

The New You (NY) Giant Mentality

1. It's not how you start, but it's how you finish: The Giants began the 2007-2008 NFL season with 2 losses. There 10-6 record was enough to earn them a wild card and get them into the playoffs. Once you get in the door, just dance like you deserved to be there all along.

2. The past is only as relevant as you make it: Negative and positive histories can be equally inspirational. The Giants hadn't won a Super Bowl since 1991 whereas the Patriots won 3 of the last 6 Super Bowls. Making the past meaningless is the only way to set-up and up-set. It means taking full accountability for your life and no excuses.

3. Tasting failure first is better than tasting it last: The Patriots almost had a perfect 19-0 season, but almost doesn't count. Tasting losing early can serve as inspiration for you not to crave it later...if you learn from it.

4. It's not if you lose, but when: We all lose at some point in life, but the question is when. The Giants had a 1-3 pre-season and 4-0 post-season. The Giants also lost to the Patriots one month ago by 3 points to close the regular season.

5. Other's expectations are meaningless: People off the field don't matter. There was a 11.5 point spread that the Patriots would win on Sunday making this one of the biggest upsets in Super Bowl history.
