The best ever still fell short.

The cowardly may never lose – and they’ll never win – but is that the life we really want?

Failure happens on the way to any goal of importance. The best to ever play / work / create have fallen short of their intended mark. It’s through those missteps that they found the key lessons needed to bridge the gap between their current position and victory.

In this bonus episode, Jake challenges listeners to risk failure and compete, because greatness is about enduring the flames of failure and still pressing onward. It’s about being sharpened by the challenges of life and not giving up.

Even when it’s freezing cold outside and she’s seven months pregnant, Sonya Looney is still on her mountain bike, pedaling hard to reach the finish line. 

Staying on track is critical for Looney, especially as she’s someone who has switched tracks a lot to follow her passions. She’s worked in marketing and communications, studied engineering, and is a high-performance athlete, podcaster, public speaker, blogger, and entrepreneur.

When she was first racing, she found herself facing a critical question. Should she quit because she wasn’t the best yet or find grit and determination and learn how to get there? She chose to persevere.

This week, she shares tips on how to develop a strong growth mindset to keep going even when it gets tough and uncertainty reigns. 

What You’ll Learn:

  • Visualize your goals to stay on track
  • Seek out people who inspire you
  • Don’t be afraid to fail publicly
  • Learn how to manage time and expectations
  • Be open to uncertainty

How you do anything is how you do everything. That’s one of Joel Runyon’s guiding principles in life.

This week, Runyon shares his story of going from living in his parents’ basement and being jobless to founding Impossible and becoming the youngest person to run ultra marathons on every continent. It all started with singling out one goal on his list and seeing it through to completion. 

A lot of people have a tendency to sabotage themselves before they even begin. That comes from getting stuck in your own head. Once you recognize how your mind is setting your limitations, you can move past them, like Runyon did. Then, you can do the things you used to think were impossible.

What You’ll Learn: 

  • Finish what you start
  • Seek out mental challenges to overcome
  • Choose one goal to start working toward
  • Don’t self-sabotage before you begin
  • Make the decision not to go quietly

You may believe that vision board party is going to help you make this year better than last, but it won’t if you only create the board and then store it away in a drawer, closet, or the back of your car.

Successful people don’t bring their vision to life by simply thinking about manifesting it – they commit to a plan of action to create it. In order to make 2020 your best year yet, you must take very specific steps this year. Steps that require intentional action on your part to create the change this year that last year lacked.

Your intentional plan of attack must be able to keep you present in the current moment, while continuously building momentum toward your desired outcome. On this week’s new podcast episode, Jake shares the five steps you can take to making this year your best year.

Hint: It will require some work on your end because no one “just magically” has their best year. They compete for it.

What’s the most important thing to you, popularity or progress?

You can care about looking perfect. You can focus on winning the approval of strangers online. You can invest your time into making sure every “t” is crossed and “i” dotted in everything you do before you start.

Or you can care only about getting better.

On this bonus Compete Every Day podcast episode, Jake dives into the importance of our focus, our daily progress, and why the attention most people crave would be given if they just focused on doing the work to get better.

Leadership development is the name of the game in this day and age. While there are many followers out there, there’s a dearth of driven and successful leaders. This week, we hear from performance coach and keynote speaker Scott Savor about getting on the path to leadership in your own life.

Whether you’re an athlete or part of a company, or just an individual seeking to better yourself this year, there are some practical steps you can take to develop your own leadership qualities. Learning and studying are important for personal development, but at the end of the day, it’s the action you take that will get you there. 

What You’ll Learn:

  • Build evergreen skill sets
  • Be self-directed and self-motivated
  • Practice daily gratitude
  • Develop intentional habits
  • Take action rather than playing it safe

The new year is a chance for a fresh start. It’s a time to build healthy habits to replace old bad ones and a time to take responsibility for getting where you want to go in 2020.

Part of making it to your own finish line is getting rid of the excuses that have held you back until now. Excuses keep you in your comfort zone and prevent you from pushing your limits. They’re a recipe for failed potential.

Want to make 2020 your best year yet? It all starts right now.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Identify your excuses
  • Ask yourself why you’re making those excuses
  • Surround yourself with people who will push you
  • Stop playing the comparison game
  • Create healthy habits to replace them
