Overcoming the Pressure of Comparison

Steve Young, Former NFL Quarterback
In conversation with: Stan Christensen, Arbor Advisors

Young explains how he was able to overcome the pressure of being compared to legendary 49ers quarterback Joe Montana. The best strategy, he notes, was to focus on finding out how good he could get, not how much better he could be than Montana. This helped him move in the right direction and got his career going as well. Later on, he became known as the fiery leader of the 49ers.
