Golden Woman

esterday, the US Woman’s football team, won the World Cup in Vancouver. They beat the previous champions, Japan, 5-2 in a very convincing manner. One woman in particular led from the front. The captain Carli Lloyd scored a hat-trick, the first-ever in a final. And all in the first 16 minutes! She also won the Golden Ball for best player of the tournament. It was sweet revenge for the US team who had previously lost the 2011 final to Japan, 3-1 in a penalty shoot out. What’s interesting is that when they lost that final Carli Lloyd was one of the women who missed her penalty. She was crushed emotionally by the defeat.

Yesterday, the US Woman’s football team,
won the World Cup in Vancouver.

They beat the previous champions, Japan, 5-2 in
a very convincing manner.

One woman in particular led from the front.

The captain Carli Lloyd scored a hat-trick, the first-ever in a final.
And all in the first 16 minutes!

She also won the Golden Ball for best player of the tournament.

It was sweet revenge for the US team who had previously
lost the 2011 final to Japan, 3-1 in a penalty shoot out.

What’s interesting is that when they lost that final
Carli Lloyd was one of the women who missed her penalty.

She was crushed emotionally by the defeat.

But like all champions, she took the lessons and
came back more determined and worked harder.

Life and business doesn’t always go the way we want.

Success is just as much about learning to take the punches
as it is about learning what to do.

ps – Last week’s post about the inspiring turnaroundstory by the Irish entrepreneur, got the biggest positive reaction of the year.
