    When Life Knocks You Down Part I, Feat Schea Cotton, with Joel Marion - BTI 108

    Prepare for inspiration with Schea Cotton!
     
    Schea Cotton is a former professional American basketball player, current player development coach, and keynote speaker.
     
    He is regarded as perhaps the greatest high school basketball player of all time mentioned in the same conversations as legendary players such as LeBron James and Kobe Bryant. In just his sophomore season Schea led Mater Dei High School to a 36 to 1 record as well as to the California State Championship. That same year he was named Cal High Sports Division One Player of the Year, the only sophomore ever to be awarded that honor as a 10th grader. 
     
    The following season, despite only playing 11 games due to a hand injury, Schea was named a Parade First Team All-American, the highest possible honor for a high school basketball player. 
     
    Due to a series of unfortunate events, Shay's college career was delayed and despite being one of the most heavily followed and recruited high school basketball players of all time, never played in the NBA.
     
    In this 2-part episode, we discuss:
    -How hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard
    -Why the greatest of players often come from the humblest of beginnings
    -What happens when you put in the work that others don't
    -How to deal with unexpected obstacles
    -The importance of acknowledging both your weakness and strengths
    And so much more.
     
    Schea's story will inspire you, encourage you, and pull you even closer to living the life you were born to live ... don't miss it.

Every episode has gold nuggets

Each episode is so good!! So relatable. The folks on this podcast are real people who have been able to change their lives and are looking to be a better version of themselves and want to make a positive impact. I can relate with the folks on these episodes because I’m a broken person trying to be a better person each day.
