"Yet" is one of the most powerful words you can use to remind your brain that you may not be where you want to be now, but you're on your way.

The journey to success is difficult.

The doubts creep in. The questions whisper in your ear. And that voice…. that damn evil voice reminding you that you’re not “there” like someone you scroll past on Instagram.

“Yet.”

You’re not there…yet.

“Yet” means that you will be.

“Yet” says I’m working toward my best self.

“YET” says SHUT UP YOU HATEFUL VOICE, I’LL SHOW YOU.

Put on your blinders and focus on stacking your own effort, your setbacks, your wins, and your hard work on top of each other. Keep climbing as you keep competing.

Every step is a building block to your best life.

#CompeteEveryDay for your “YET” while not giving up in the “now.”

2020 has been a hard year for people across this country. It’s been a time of change and transition. For many of us, it’s been a journey full of ups and downs. Because of that, it’s the perfect time to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. There’s nothing to lose by starting a new workout, creating a podcast, or tackling a creative project. This week, podcast host and executive recruiter Ken Lubin talks about the importance of the journey and shares tips for making the most of unexpected moments in time like these.

Periods of change in life bring with them some missed opportunities. However, for every door that closes, another opens, and it’s important to be receptive to new possibilities when they come your way. While many people keep their eye on the potential outcome of their work, Lubin reminds us to pay special attention to the process we take to get there. That’s where the experiences lie, along with the potential for growth and improvement.

In order to capitalize on your big opportunities in life, you better make sure you’re maximizing the small ones.

We tend to focus only on the big moments in life, those spotlight opportunities we need to do well in to succeed. But in doing so, we fail to seize those big moments because we neglected the little ones that prepare us for them.

If you want to capitalize on your life’s biggest moments, make sure you’re maximizing the smallest ones every day.

Getting better is a choice.

Obesity is a choice, just like working out every day is a choice. Being in debt is a choice, just like managing your finances is a choice.

We all make choices every day (whether we realize it or not). Being a winner in life is about understanding your choices, being intentional with what you choose, and choosing to compete every day.

Getting better is a choice - is it one you'll make today?

For Lauren Sisler, laying the groundwork for better outcomes in life always begins with a single first step. Sometimes we have a choice about when that happens, and sometimes we don’t. But one step is all it takes to head in a new direction. This week, Sisler shares her story of moving from gymnast to broadcast sports reporter and the pivotal moments that led her to where she is today.

One of the most critical moments happened when Sisler was a freshman in college. She received a call from her father saying her mother had just died. By the time she got home, her father had passed away, too. After their deaths, she realized that change is a constant and it’s up to each person to decide how and when they start to adapt. Now, she uses her experiences to help others who may be struggling to give or receive support.

Motivation will fail you.

You will wake up more than once a week without the motivation to do the necessary work to move toward your goals. Most people wait on motivation.

They work hard on the days they feel “it” and they do nothing on the days they don’t.

Is it any wonder why they never reach their goals?

One key to success is learning to take action without feeling motivated. In this podcast episode, Jake Thompson shares why Competitors don’t need motivation in order to crush the goals they’ve set.

For Lauren Johnson, there’s no time like the present. If you want to change your past or build a better future, it all starts today, she says. The decisions you make here and now are the ones that will help or hinder you on a regular basis. This week, Johnson, who is a mental conditioning coordinator for the Yankees, shares her tips for deciding to change, recommitting, and holding yourself accountable. It all starts one choice at a time.

“Everything we do exists in the present moment,” she says. “Our mind is the only thing able to exist in all three past, present, and future.” For that reason, it’s critical to practice the behaviors and mindsets that work in service of your goals. By envisioning the identity you want, you can choose to become it. It may mean being uncomfortable or going outside your comfort zone. It may mean feeling fear or uncertainty. But it’s in those challenges and the way you respond to them that growth happens.

It's easy to make the excuse that if we aren't motivated, taking a day off is ok.

In reality, Champions make sure that every day is the day they take a step forward.

It can be one step forward, or it can be ten. But something done every day to move closer to your goals beats doing nothing.

For author and podcaster Brian Levenson, one of the most under-appreciated question words is “when.” That’s because knowing when to shift between different mindsets and frameworks is just as critical as the skills it takes to do so. For example, elite performers of all types find success through understanding when it’s time to prepare and when it’s time to perform. Then, they can adapt how they are thinking about each situation to match what they need to achieve in that moment.

This week, Levenson returns to the show to discuss his new book and why he chose to focus on mindset shift as a key piece of the process puzzle. For many people, it can be easy to get stuck spending too much time and effort on either preparation or performance. They forget that it’s a combination of the two, along with a healthy dose of practice, that is a recipe for success. It’s crucial for people to take a mental inventory every once in a while and then put the time into making up for whatever they’re not doing enough of.

Is your decision to take action every day determined by your current position - or your long-term commitment?

Most people stay in neutral because they justify if they can't do "everything," there's no sense in doing anything. It's the same reason they fail to reach their goals - there's always an excuse as to why they can't get the work done.

In this new podcast episode, speaker Jake Thompson challenges you with the truth that even if you can't do everything you want today, there's always at least one thing you can do to get better.
