2 Unforgettable Lessons from Super Bowl 51

Atlantic Solutions (South Plainfield, NJ) shares their business takeaways from the Super Bowl.

cgdfumsxfemq8If you’re like us, you spent Sunday, February 5th with friends and family indulging in tailgate food in front of a big screen. The typical Super Bowl Sunday! And what a game. Regardless of the team you were cheering for, we can probably all agree that it was a doozie. Did you know that there were actually 24 records broken? In addition to the great commercials, show-stopping half time performance and an incredible finish to the game, there were also some lessons to be learned!

Mistakes aren’t fatal – In the first part of the game, the Patriots made numerous errors, which the Falcons quickly capitalized on. Their kicker even missed a much-needed extra point. We all know how the game ended, just to prove, yet again, mistakes aren’t the end of the road. You will make mistakes in business but at Atlantic Solutions we teach our employees to learn from them and bounce back even better than ever.

Success isn’t final – The Falcons came out to an early lead and up until the fourth quarter were up by 19 points! No team had ever come back from that large of a deficit to win the Super Bowl. But it happened. It’s just a reminder that no matter what, you have to keep pushing forward. When you feel like you are at your best, push harder because once you’re at the top, there’s only one way to fall.

More than 111 million people tuned into Super Bowl LI, do you think they all took away the same lessons as we did? Doubtful. Something that sets us apart here at Atlantic Solutions is that we teach an entrepreneurial mentality to our employees which will give them an edge up in their careers. Something that may seem as trivial as a football game can bring about tons of lessons in resilience, leadership, passion, preparation and more. Not everyone will pick up on them but you can count on the fact that our team will!

The competitive spirit is alive and well at Atlantic Solutions in South Plainfield, NJ. With so many sports fans and former athletes on the team, it’s no wonder that a little smack talking comes so naturally to us. We asked one of the key trainers on the team, Hassan Wehbeh, a few questions about his love for sports. He shared with us that he does not follow football, but he loves him some soccer! In fact, he told us that if he could visit any sports venue across the globe, he would choose El Clasico.

Hassan’s favorite sports memory is the 2008 UEFA Champions League Final in Moscow, Russia, which was contested by Manchester United and Chelsea. Manchester United won the match 6–5 on penalties.
