The fear of failure affects us all, no matter how brave or strong we may appear externally. But should that stop us taking risks and trying new things out? And is failure an objectively bad thing?
Take the topic of this week’s vodcast: WWE vs. UFC, or in clearer terms: fantasy vs. reality. One particular character (Phillip Brooks aka CM Punk – a professional wrestler turned UFC fighter) crossed the boundaries between the two earlier this week. Retiring from the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and signing to the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Champion) in order to… well… fight for real! Sadly, it didn’t exactly go to plan.
CM Punk’s debut UFC fight was poor. He was “comfortably beaten” in the first round by the seasoned UFC fighter Mickey Gall. Naturally, this caused something of an uproar across the board, with fans and critics of both WWE and UFC weighing-in on what this means. Including us, it would seem! But what can this possibly have to do with the coaching world? Watch the video above (a rather eventful video – we decided to try something new with this one in spirit of the topic!), and see what we have to say
