Hey Team-

Hope you guys had a great week! This was a great week for those who are fans of the Bronx Bombers/ New York Yankees.

A huge Wild Card win, taking the boys up to Boston to play against the Division Champs! This is the best time of year for baseball fans. I absolutely love it.

I love the underdogs.  I love the passion, the fire, the fury! 


October Baseball.

Only the best advance.

Which is what today is about.

The best advancing.

So many people out there are looking for advancement, yet very few have what it takes.

I was doing a talk yesterday to about 80 brilliant minds at a software company on Long Island. This is exactly what we talked about. Having what it takes.

Did they have what it takes to compete against the greatest programmers in the world at Google, Amazon, and Facebook.

How could they get an edge?

I told them the only way to get an edge is to manage their energy better than the rest.

It is our most precious resource. In all my years working with the Yankees and other Pro Athletes, energy management was critical.

How do you get through 162 games plus playoffs?

How do you bring 100% effort every night when your body is shot and your mind wants to quit?

These are the big questions.

We are in world and society both in sports and business that wants big results. Expects big results. But, what I have found, is that people need to be trained for those results. They need to be physically and mentally sharp to win in this Gladiator World.

The strong survive. The energized survive. The determined survive.

If you think you can make it today without immense discipline, focus, self-belief, and optimal health, you are nuts.

You are one day away from a breakdown. Nervous, mental, and/ or physical breakdown.

Learn what and who drains your energy.

Learn what and who gives you energy.

You should not know more about your vehicle than yourself.

You gotta learn what makes you GO.

What your “it" factors are.

What your differentiators are. Then, go all in.

That is how you win big today.

Now go get it today!
