We like to say that the 18Strong show is more than a golf and fitness podcast, and you’re going to feel that exactly in this episode with Ed Mylett. Today, we are revisiting what I consider to be one of the most powerful interviews that we have ever done over the 300+ episodes of the 18STRONG Podcast.
For this week and possibly the next few weeks, I’m going to share a few of my personal favorite episodes. The ones that I tend to recommend over and over when I meet someone new.
Whether you’re a new listener or have been with us for a long time, these are episodes that I personally go back to on a regular basis because there is simply so much gold in them. And this one in particular has probably had the biggest impact on me out of all of the interviews I have done.
Ed Mylett is one of the top performance, personal development, and business coaches in the world right now and this episode is simply a master class on building your self-confidence in everything that you do. From the golf course to the gym, to the rest of your life; Ed breaks it all down to one very simple concept that has literally changed how I view any new goal or challenge. People literally pay thousands of dollars to be able to get this much time with Ed and you get to hear him speak and coach for free here on the 18STRONG Podcast. Enjoy!
