Have you ever hit a slump in your business, when it feels like nothing’s going right? Benjamin Watson, Baltimore Ravens tight end and author of The New Dad’s Playbook: Gearing Up for the Biggest Game of Your Life, says that when he’s in a game that isn’t going well, he never gives up--a lesson his father taught him. Keep fighting for what you want to happen.

That kind of leadership translates to business. When things aren’t going well, but you hang in there and lead, people rally behind you, he says. Just like one player making a great play can build the momentum that turns around a game, taking action in your business can turn around your situation. Just because things aren’t going your way, they don’t have to stay that way. Take action and build your own momentum.
