    J.J. Watt: Am I Any Good?

    J.J. Watt: Am I Any Good?

    Early in his career, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt wasn’t the athlete he’s known as today. In fact, he was the opposite. On this episode of The Secret to Victory, J.J. Watt talks about how he went from a high school football player ignored by big-time college scouts-- to the quarterback-sacking, pass-deflecting monster he is in the NFL today.

    Serena Williams: I'm Not Supposed To Lose

    Serena Williams: I'm Not Supposed To Lose

    Serena Williams doesn’t lose often, but when she does she takes a lot of flak for the way she loses-- her reactions, her behavior. But maybe there’s a reason for all of it. Something more than just a desire to win. We speak with Serena Williams about one of her worst defeats-- her 2016 loss to Karolína Plíšková in the US Open. She opens up about what happened that day-- and why, as she puts it, she’s a “terrible loser.” And it turns out, there’s more to it than you might think.
