A lovely story in The Guardian newspaper this morning – and if BJ’s allowed a baseball analogy, no-one’s going to stop me quoting a soccer story that sparked some proposal-related thoughts.
Bill Beswick, a sports pyschologist, was brought in to work with Manchester United when their star player was David Beckham.
Before training one morning, he tried to motivate United’s players by telling them a tale of three bricklayers. Asked what he was doing, the first replied “laying bricks” and the second said “earning £10 an hour” but the third said he was “helping to build a beautiful cathedral where I will bring my kids”.
Apparently Beckham promptly scored a wonderful goal on the practice pitch and celebrated by screaming: “Cathedral 1 Bricklayers 0.”
