Coaches will run their teams differently than others. Some still believe in the traditional, “yelling coach” method to instill lessons in their players more effectively. If this situation applies to you, you must deal with it the right way. Don’t allow discouragement to seep in. Control your play. Fight for YOUR power!


Episode 116 Time Stamps:

(3:11) My experience with coaching, in the NFL

(8:00) Do you have a relatable coach?

(10:14) Weak, fragile egos

(11:21) Old-school coaching

(12:13) Handling your coach...

(14:50) Having the right mentality (G-Code)

(15:42) Conflict is not bad; it's necessary

(16:11) A yelling coach doesn't translate to you being a bad player

(16:46) Coaches expect mistakes to happen

(17:15) Mistakes aren't a bad thing

(17:58) Attach meaning to your coach's yelling

(18:36) You will be controlled if you don't apply your unique meaning

(19:50) Life example: Firefighting

(21:55) Anticipate various responses to your actions

(22:18) Decide to play, in spite of anxiety

(22:55) Identify your mistakes

(23:30) Get a training routine for improvement

(26:36) Show respect by simply, listening

(27:12) Approach your coach at the right time

(30:12) Never give them power!

I remember Sean Payton reminding the whole squad to keep their eyes on the prize: “Don’t eat the cheese!” Success will eat you up before you know it. Pay attention to your character as you approach your biggest milestones... Are you remaining true to yourself, or do you become someone else? Today’s episode will remind you of the narrow-focus you must apply, everywhere you go. Don’t ever play yourself!


Episode 114 Time Stamps:

(4:47) Thoughts, actions, and lifestyles of a "soft athlete"

(10:27) Would you like to be this person?

(10:48) "Stay awake!"

(11:25) "Don't eat the cheese!"

(11:43) 1: Re-associate to the ultimate vision, every day

(12:46) 2: Keep an honest mentor/coach by your side at all times

(13:07) 3: Identify weaknesses that don't appear, right now

(14:51) 4: Frequently and objectively analyze your training routine, for improvement

(15:44) 5: Identify improvements, daily. Keep track!

(16:05) 6: Tell yourself that YOU GOT THE JUICE!

(16:44) 7: Remind yourself of people who had the juice, but lost it

(17:07) 8: Accept all praise, but take it with a grain of salt

(17:40) 9: Eliminate ALL vices!

When it comes to finding the right mentor, you must consider these important questions. At the end of the day, you’re in complete control of building your true identity. With that being said, you may need to evaluate your current sources of wisdom. Take notes... Take ACTION!

(2:31) Your environment deeply affects what you think and how you act

(4:11) No one is immune to the power of your environment

(7:00) A reality check, about your current surroundings

(8:40) Willingness, and a commitment to growing at a fast rate = a dominant athlete's best trait

(11:03) The essential qualities of a mentor

(13:46) There are no exceptions for "blind" advice

(15:21) The proper mindset to have before seeking a mentor...

(15:28) Assume that it's better to learn from those who've done it already

(16:16) A mentor isn't someone who tells you what to do. YOU are the decision-maker.

(17:05) What a mentor is, in my opinion

(17:50) There's no human that's inherently 'better' than you

(19:12) Don't think that people are 'perfect'

(20:00) A mentor is an influencer of your standards; not a creator

(21:22) Family and friends shouldn't naturally become your mentor

(22:10) Not everything that a good mentor does, should be emulated

(23:15) HOW TO FIND A MENTOR

(23:29) #1: Identify specific areas and skills that you want to master

(24:16) #2: Research the top 3 prospective mentors in your category (globally)

(24:46) #3: Buy their books or programs, and learn as much as possible

(25:20) #3.5: Identify the top 3 prospective mentors in your category (in your area)

(25:55) PRO TIP: Put their skills into practice and share your results with them

(27:41) #4: Repetition! | "50th Law" by Robert Greene & 50 Cent

(29:22) Identify a current mentor, and evaluate these questions...

(30:05) Why do you listen to your current mentor?

(30:45) What have they done, that YOU want to do?

(31:04) What's their advice/perspective coming from?

(32:06) Do they deserve to sound as sure as they are?

(32:22) What are their 'fruits'?
