The people who reach the top do it because they can see their own strengths, capitalize on them, and don’t waste time with busy work.

A big part of being successful is learning to set yourself apart from the crowd. What can I be the best at? That’s a question this week’s guest asked himself many years ago, which ultimately set him on the path to success.

Dana Cavalea spent his entire professional career in sports with the New York Yankees, starting at the bottom and working his way up to be their director of strength and conditioning. He doesn’t sugarcoat the hard work it took, just as he doesn’t sugarcoat what made the star players he worked with the best of the best.

Listen and learn how to:

  • Identify your own talents and strengths
  • Double down on building and capitalizing on your best attributes
  • Slow down, quiet the noise, and focus on one task at a time
  • How to find the mechanics of your own success
  • Listen to your intuition

When the time comes to move on, it’s important to realize it and do just that. Open a new door. Take advantage of an unexpected opportunity. Don’t shy away from change.

That’s the message from this week’s guest. Rachel Balkovec was the first female strength and conditioning coach in MLB history, but she’s much more than that. In this episode, Balkovec talks about not being afraid to upset the norm and recognize when the current path isn’t working anymore.

Listen and learn how to:

  • The importance of flexibility and being able to adapt to changes
  • How to build success, step by step
  • Recognize what’s no longer serving your interests and move on
  • The benefits of diverse experiences
  • Take advantage of open doors and new opportunities

There are a lot of people that believe that competition is bad. They have the perspective that if they're not physically lined up across from someone trying to beat them, then they're not competing.

That perspective is wrong.

Each of us, every day, are in a competition. And if you don't realize that you're in a competition, how can you ever expect to win?

Understand what you're up against. Compete to overcome it. My thoughts on what each of our daily competition looks like - and how to start each morning to make sure you get the leg up on what competes against you.

This week, we hear from former tennis player and current touring coach Christopher Williams about the power of mindset.

  • Find a process that leads to success
  • Build self-awareness on the court and in life
  • Focus on action, not reaction
  • Learn to manage expectations
  • Develop a growth mindset for a well-rounded life

Are you allowing your position - at work, on the team, in life - determine your output? Are you letting where you are today influence the effort, the energy, and the focus you pour into your purpose on earth?

Find out how Competitors approach this topic and what you need to do in order to be successful in every pursuit you take in life.

Some kids come in with grit, others have to learn to develop it. But no matter how they started on a team, they need to learn perseverance to succeed both in sports and in life. This week, we hear from Houston Baptist University football coach Roger Hinshaw about the power of competition for kids and adults. He talks about the trends he’s seen during his many years as a coach and shows that while talent is often praised, it’s easier to come by than sheer determination.

Learn how Competitors view - and attack - obstacles that show up in life. Most people cower or back down when life tries to knock them down. Most people also fail to reach their goals or their full potential.

Find out what simple perspective shift can fuel you toward overcoming your next obstacle the way a Competitor does.
