James Reid Coach


Ep.240 | Bryan Schwartz | Right-size, Resize, and Reframe Your Way to Your Most Successful Year

What are you measuring yourself up against?

Sadly, for years, I was measuring myself up against so many other people. That’s why my life and path looked like a dang heart rate monitor. Up here, down there, over there, back down, back up. It’s dizzying just thinking about it. 

The shift happened when I started measuring myself up against a version of myself that I wanted to be. Shortly after, my path got clearer and straighter. And **my** version of success started becoming a reality.

I’m not the only one this happened to. Former NFL Linebacker, Bryan Schwartz, has a similar story that will open your eyes wide, and he’s my Guest on this week’s episode of the Coming Up Clutch with J.R.™ show. 

If you want a clearer and straighter path to your desired future, then lock in to this week’s episode!

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • What to do when you’re feeling like your contribution in life is not big enough.
  • How to continue to move forward from the condemnation that comes with past failures and mistakes. 
  • The recurring problem that Bryan sees with high capacity people.
  • Importance of maintaining an open mindset to seize unexpected opportunities.
  • Examining the negative effects of comparison and pressure.
  • Importance of seeking help and embracing grace and acceptance in personal development.
