Michael Jordan once said about Kobe Braynt “He’s just as cursed as I am.” The curse MJ was talking about was the constant desire to dominate, win and improve, at virtually any cost.
You’ve decided what you want, and you are afflicted with the same desire to win, dominate, and master your craft. The problem that comes up is the incessant feeling that you are not doing enough. You’re not making progress fast enough. Things could be better.
What do you do with this feeling? How can you feel like a success every day, instead of constantly feeling like you're losing? In this episode, I break it down.

Are you a coach or teacher? Are you an “influencer”? Do you have kids? Do you value helping others to get results? If so, you and I have that in common.
In my quest to be world-class at what I do, I have read hundreds of books… and not all of them were created equal. In this episode, I break down 9 of the most impactful books that have helped me become a better coach. I also breakdown what it takes to be a world-class coach, and my system for how to continuously improve.
Once you decide to channel your ambition towards real results, now you have a challenge... How do you track your progress? How do you organize all of these goals? How are you going to manage all of these thighs without getting overwhelmed? How can you ensure that you follow-through, and remain accountable?
I have tested and tried a lot of apps for this purpose, and I have yet to find one as practical and powerful as the "Ambition App".
