Everybody has talent, but ability takes hard work.

There are a lot of different factors that come into play if your goal is to become a great basketball player.

But whether you’re the best player on the team or you’re a bench warmer, basketball is an incredible teacher in life. The lessons we learn, the habits we develop, and the experiences we have can be carried throughout our lives.

Depending on how you look at it, there are so many different things you need to focus on to become your best. While you can pinpoint a lot of…

You have within you, right now, everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you.

A year ago I was on a football recruiting trip with my son, Daxon. It was cut short because of the “14 Days to Flatten The Curve” plan. At that time we couldn’t have imagined how dramatically this pandemic would impact all of our lives, or for how long.

For a long time, people talked about “when things get back to normal…” But the truth is, we’re never going back to where we use to be. Things have changed…

What do you see when you look in the mirror?

Is the person looking back at you tired and defeated? Scared for what the future holds? Confused? Unsure?

Or is the person looking back at you full of energy and excited about life and the future?

2020 has been an unbelievable year. Things have been tough. There has been a lot of fear. There has been a lot of failure. For many, that’s exactly what they are still going through.

But guess what. Despite what you hear through the media, there have been some entrepreneurs that have had an incredible…

The world held its breath as American gymnast, 16 year old, Mary Lou Retton stood at the end of the mat preparing for her final vault. It was the summer of 1984 and the stakes couldn’t be higher. She had to get a perfect score, a 10, to win the Olympic gold. She closed her eyes for a moment, positioned herself, broke into a full sprint, and nailed a perfect 10 off the pommel horse to clinch the gold medal for herself and Team USA. …

Who Not How is a powerful concept that I learned from Dan Sullivan. I felt that it was such an important concept that I discuss it it in my High Achievers Mindset Secrets course. When I heard that Benjamin Hardy had teamed up with Dan to write the book, , I was anxious to get my hands on it.

Combining Dan’s concepts with Benjamin’s creativity and writing skills has resulted in a book that I highly recommend to entrepreneurs, leaders, or anyone else that wants to get more out of life.

Every Monday on my podcast, Daily Success Strategies, I tell my listeners that they need to set their week up for success. They have to determine what they need to accomplish throughout the week so that on Friday, once they’ve achieved everything they set out to do, they can look back and know that they had a successful week. I also encourage them to make sure that what it is they are working on will help get them closer to their bigger goals.

Once they have their plans figured out and they know what they need to accomplish to make…

Mindset is defined as the established set of attitudes held by someone.

A lot of my recent work and research has been focused on helping people create a mindset that will allow them to achieve their goals and dreams. Using the simple definition above, that would mean that I’m helping people develop a set of attitudes that will help them achieve their goals and dreams.

There are a lot of different strategies and practices that I use to help people develop what I refer to as a Powerful Mindset. For some people, this is an easy process to follow and…

Be More Productive and Get Back Your Life

“Wake up with determination. Go to bed with satisfaction.”


How are you using your time?

How productive are you during that time?

The traditional 9–5, eight-hour work day is not the most efficient model for the most productivity.

Many people are going through their routine on a daily basis because, “that’s how it’s done.” But over the past seven months many people have been forced to change their pattern and way of doing things whether they like it or not.

And guess what?… Many of them have realized that they are just as, or even more productive in their…

Where Focus Goes, Energy Flows

What you think, you become.

What you feel, you attract.

What you imagine, you create.


Our state of being is always changing. We may be happy, sad, excited, depressed, anxious, and the list goes on and on. We have the ability to impact our own state of being.

In this episode of my Daily Success Strategies podcast I focus on three areas of our life that can not only impact, but intentionally change our state.

  • Pattern of Physiology — This is the way that we use our body. We can change our state…

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

— Abraham Lincoln

One day, you are going to become your future self. Who is that person?

Think back ten years ago. Where were you? What were you doing? What were your goals and dreams?

Is that where you are today? Is this where you planned to be? Why, or why not?

Have you been intentional about creating the life you want, or has it just happened? Is it just the life you’ve been dealt?

Are there times in the past ten years in which different decisions would have…
