I played football at a high level for over 10 years … I was a three-time All-American at the college level, and had short stints with a couple of different teams in the NFL …
I often get questions about what I think was the #1 aspect that set apart elite-level athletes.
In my opinion, it’s not natural ability …
It’s not training and preparation …
I believe that it is the mental aspect.
A strong MIND is what allows you to perform at a peak level at all times, and deal with any situation that is thrown your way.
And I believe that this is KEY to work on, develop, and continually get better throughout your lifetime … whether you are playing sports at an elite level, or you are just trying to become the “strongest version of yourself”.
So that is the message for today … get your MIND right to succeed in athletics, your workouts and your LIFE!

See, in my football days, I actually did do a good amount of training on the topic. My coaches throughout the years focused and taught on being mentally tough in varying degrees throughout the years … I also read books on the topic, listened to audio tapes, etc …

I am personally excited about Mike’s program and am currently going through it myself, and loving it. This is a program that is filling a unique space in the market, and there is not really anything else like it out there, that I have seen.

That’s it for now … stay tuned, we’ll be digging into this topic more later this week!
Train hard, and talk soon –
