Champions succeed because they keep going

When the going gets tough…

Champions keep going.

Champions in school succeed because they keep going

Champions in sport succeed because they keep going

Champions in business succeed because they keep going

Champions in life succeed because they keep going

Champions decide to keep pushing… and stay the course…

Thus, eventual success is a decision.

Sure, things get tough because they always do.

But Champions keep going.

When I heard Dr. Jim Afremow talking about his first book,

The Champion’s Mind: How Great Athletes Think Train and Thrive

My immediate thought was, I have to get this book…

I read it. I loved it.

And I read it again.

In his book, Dr. Afremow discusses the various aspects of a champion’s mind…

He talks about struggle

And how champions handle it.

Not how a champion deals with it…

But how a champion handles it.

How a champion talks to himself…

Instead of listening to himself.

How a champion does everything she can to win today

Because right now is the only moment we have to be our best

And when you’re busy today procrastinating or dwelling on the past…

That’s how you lose the game…

That’s how you lose today.

This isn’t the mind of a Champion.

Tuesday’s podcast and blog post featured a true Champion, Charlie Fusco

But exclusively on the blog, I mentioned TheAthleteSummit.com

If you’re preparing to market your product, service, or website…

I highly recommend you taking a look at the mistake I made in that marketing campaign…

There’s a couple golden nuggets of knowledge there.

In 2015, I interviewed Dr. Afremow for The Athlete Summit.

I had to get him on the line to discuss his book and share it with the world.

Interviewing all the big—time coaches for The Athlete Summit was amazing…

Coaches I had been following for years…

Coaches I looked up to…

Coaches I deeply respected…

Coaches who’ve taught me so much in my sports and coaching careers.

But, when I hopped on the line with Dr. Afremow…

It was different.

Afremow was the first guest who actually did research on me before we hopped on the line.

He knew I was blind, about the accident, and about my success as an athlete.

After our interview, we had multiple conversations last year…

And he helped me out a lot.

He helped me make a huge breakthrough in my mental performance as an athlete…

Another breakthrough in my development as an individual…

And motivated me to finish writing my book.

14 chapters and over 60,000 words later…

It’s done. It’s ready for publication…

At the end of one of our phenomenal conversations, Afremow let me in on a little secret.

He was almost done writing his second book.

And then goes on to say he’d like to feature me as an athlete in the book!

Well, the book came out last Tuesday, May 10…

To lose this opportunity we have today.

This is just a teaser, but to get the entire 2000+ word article…
