For Matt Kjell, it’s all about family. Since the start of this year, he’s gotten married and is now expecting a child. But he hasn’t always felt the future looked so bright. Back in 2018, his father received a surprising cancer diagnosis and passed away shortly thereafter. It shook Kjell’s foundations and sent him into a spiral of unhealthy choices. One day, he woke up, looked around, and asked himself a crucial question: Is this what I want my life to look like? His answer was a resounding “no.”

This week, Kjell shares his story about finding the path back to health and wellness, and about the importance of family. He had always looked to his father, and his grandfather before that, as examples of what it means to work hard and provide a good life for their kids. Now, Kjell is following in their footsteps and using their drive as motivation in his own life, so he can continue their legacy with the next generation.

Individuals have the power to influence entire organizations. That’s why it’s critical for leaders, coaches, players, and coworkers to invest in personal development and making connections in order to have successful outcomes. This week, Colin Cerniglia, CEO and founder of the Talent 409 Leadership Academy, talks about building a culture of excellence in sports, business, and life, and why digging deeper than surface level is a key component.

He draws many of his stories from the cultural shifts of the New York Yankees. Cerniglia has long been a fan of the team, but became interested in the Yankees’ team dynamics and how they’ve changed over time. He explores that history in his new book, which shows that the example set by team leaders can have a profound effect on everyone and on the way the group works together to achieve their goals.

“Be curious, not furious.” That was something Anna Hennings’ mother used to tell her growing up. In essence, it means that it’s better to be curious about the mistakes you make, rather than just being angry that you made them. That’s because mistakes are a great way to learn and grow, if you see them as an opportunity, rather than a failure. This saying now serves as a cornerstone of Hennings’ understanding of building a growth mindset and is something she passes on to the people she works with on a daily basis.

Hennings is a mental performance coach who predominantly works with volleyball players and more specifically, those transitioning from indoor volleyball to beach volleyball. But while she has a focus area, the lessons she learned in sports and now uses in her practice are applicable throughout life and work, she says. For example, it can be helpful for players to practice self-compassion through self-kindness, understanding common humanity, and mindfulness. But those same skills are invaluable in the workplace and at home for finding ways to continue on the path of personal development and happiness.

Dre Baldwin wasn’t always the most talented player on his team. But what he always had was a love of competition, a strong drive to succeed, and a healthy dose of discipline. After a later start to his basketball career, he went on to play professionally overseas and then returned home to start his own business. In the years since he graduated, he’s built a name for himself as an author, speaker, and YouTube role model. This week, Baldwin talks about the power of trusting the process and putting in the work that will lead to success on and off the court.

You have to build a strong foundation and push yourself to visualize how you plan on reaching your goals, Baldwin says. One of the ways Baldwin did that in his own life was to focus on who he surrounded himself with. For example, in order to get better at school sports, he played one-on-one with the best players on his team. Even though they usually scored more points, he learned from playing against them regularly. Not only did those games help him build confidence, they helped him learn new skills from people who did them well. By working on strengthening his foundation, he was able to find success in the long-term.

Today, I dive into the one decision you should consider most heading into a new month and the upcoming election.

All of the attention (or shouting) on social media is why you have to vote for this person or that person. It's taking attention away from who you should really consider casting a ballot for and putting your faith in this year.
