Ep.84 | Wednesday Recap | Joshua Lifrak

When things are going great, what are you doing to get better?

Wait, what?

Did I just ask you a trick question?

When I sense that someone is all bark and no bite, it really makes them feel uncomfortable when I ask them that question.

“But, I’m good, J.R. Things are going well right now.”

You catch that?

“Right now.”

The inevitable storm is coming. Problem is, by the time these cats are ready to prepare for it, it’s too late.

Here’s something I’ve observed for over the past 28 years…

The most successful people I’ve been around in life…from me caddying for them back in my teens and early 20s to today as their trusted strategist…

They’re MORE determined to get better when things are going great…

Because they want to pounce on their opportunity to separate themselves from the pack. 

The ones that want to just FEEL good about themselves and their current status, well…

They’re the ones that weed themselves out of the highest levels in sports and business…and life for that matter.

Don’t be that guy (or gal!). 

In today’s episode of Coming Up Clutch™️, I summarize the Top 3 nuggets from Monday’s interview with mindset expert and 2016 World Series Champion, Joshua Lifrak.

If you want to learn how to keep getting better and separate yourself from the pack whether it’s going good or bad, then lock in to the cliffs notes version of my interview with Josh.
