Most of your peers are victims....and you most likely are, too. Being a "victim" means you act helpless to change your circumstances, and life bullies you into submission everyday.

If you're a student, you might have to run this episode back as a new semester approaches... Just because you can ball on the field or court, doesn't mean you'll be able to take those skills and apply them in the classroom. Just like anything else, there is a strategy and mindset that is required to kill it in the classroom and get the grades you need. In my experience, when I wanted to, I was able to crush it in the classroom. In this episode, I break down specifically how I did it.
