Today’s message is especially dedicated to the great Jay Colella in Kensington, Maryland.
The purpose of this blog is not to give you something to eat.
The purpose of this blog is to make you hungry.
Hungry to get to the next level.
Hungry to go all-out.
Hungry to do your best when it means the most.
Recently, I received a nice message from Jay Colella in Kensington, Maryland, wanting to purchase my book. I could tell that he was hungry for knowledge. Even though we didn’t speak in person, I could feel his enthusiasm through his words. Having that desire is such a big part of success…in sports and life.
To reach peak performance, you need to be hungry to be the best you can be. And if you think that is difficult, imagine how difficult it would be to compete against someone who is hungry and you are not.
When I was speaking to some top college and NBA coaches at the University of Florida recently, I told them that I did not want them to be well-rounded, I wanted them to be sharp-edged, i.e., be really, really good at one thing versus average at many things.
So how hungry are you to get to the next level? And what steps are you taking to make sure that happens? Only you can answer those questions. And only you can take the action necessary to create the person you want to be.
