Why not you? You’ve been training…

Classes, papers, working out, certification exams, training, exercises, reading, studying, preparing, interning, etc etc, etc…You’ve been doing it all…whether it was last week or 20 years ago, you have put the time for your moment…Your moment where all that training, effort, and work you put in will come (or did come) in handy….All that work was small deposits over the years that you cashed in and took one big withdrawal….to make the call, hit that home run, kill it in that interview, slay them in that presentation, or hit your PR in that race, etc.

In this podcast, we meet Matt Williamson, a construction management major at Cal Poly U out in California. He is an enthusiastic young man who is going to do great things out West.

I also touch on the successful stories of Sean McVay and Lincoln Riley. Sean is the 1st year head coach of the LA Rams and Lincoln Riley is the 1st year head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners. Both of these young men are examples of making the best of the opportunity when it comes. They put the time in training and preparing (deposits) and have clearly been successful in their first go around (huge withdrawal).

So if you are awaiting that opportunity, are in that time, or missed the mark on your chance, keep prepping. Keep making those deposits of training, focus, #hardwork, and you will be successful. It is not the number of times you fail that people will judge you on. It is the number of times that you are successful is what counts. Sean McVay & Lincoln Riley certainly have made an impressive start to their head coaching careers.

Go out and change the world for the better.
