Hey Team!

Hope you guys had a great weekend!

This weekend I was speaking to one of my former players about what it is like to be out of the game..

What are you up to?

What are you doing now?

What do you miss the most?

THE COMPETITION....

Winning vs. Losing....

You see, for many Athletes that retire, they struggle because for so many years they had two very clear objectives...

The Big Picture: WIN THE CHAMPIONSHIP

The Life Picture: STAY AT THE TOP (by training, mindset work, and daily execution of the process)

But, like the majority, when they retire, they struggle.

The only difference is most athletes are retiring in their 30s... maybe even sooner...

So they are really at the same crossroads that most people find themselves at during certain points of life...

  • WHAT DO I WANT TO DO WITH MY LIFE?
  • WHAT IS MY PASSION?
  • WHAT CAN I SEE MYSELF DOING FOR THE DURATION?
  • WHAT TALENTS DO I HAVE NOW?
  • HOW CAN I FIND PURPOSE AND STAY RELEVANT?

These are real questions... 

These are the questions we find ourselves asking ourselves throughout the journey..

SO where does that leave us?

Well... in a place of discovery... excitement.. 

And that is a very good thing!

We get to define what winning is for ourselves...

We get to find what lights us up...

We get to try new things... 

And that my friends is the only way to truly find what you love and see what you are made of...

Don't try to become a Hall of Famer in a day, week, month, or year....

Go on a journey... 

And remember to just focus on WINNING YOUR DAY...

One great day at a time... One great workout at a time... One great healthy meal at at time.... One great day of optimistic thinking at a time... One competitive meeting at a time... 

You get the point?

If you try to become a HERO IN A DAY.. you will find yourself frustrated rather than excited about the process of invention and reinvention....

Now.. take some steps today...

Try something new...

Dig in...

The old you is not the new you....

You can create personal change every single day... and that is the healthy "progress" the mind wants and needs to feel purposeful....

Let's go...

Start taking action today on your mission, vision, and goals!
