Our Communication is Broken
In today's world, communication is ever-changing and becoming increasingly difficult. I have spoken with a number of people, both in & out of sports, who tell me that they're overly cautious when communicating what they feel & think.
Why? Because they are afraid to cross a certain line. They're afraid to share what they believe out of fear someone will misinterpret their intentions or underlying belief systems. The question I want to answer in this episode is - how have we gotten to this point?
Tune Into Your Higher Frequency
There is so much noise in our lives and clutter in our heads. It's almost like we are standing in Times Square trying to focus on one small billboard. Surrounding us are loud noises, cars honking, bright lights, people shouting, etc. It becomes extremely difficult to focus our attention on that small billboard.
In this episode, I want to focus on how and where to filter and direct our attention, energies, & effort so that we can stay focused on the things that matter and remove all the clutter and noise.
Bhrett McCabe and Ben Newman: A Discussion About Uncommon Leadership
This week, I brought in a familiar voice to The Secrets to Winning, none other than my fellow Alabama Football consultant, Ben Newman. Ben's new book, Uncommon Leadership, takes you inside the minds and hearts of 11 exceptional individuals and unquestioned leaders in sports, business, and life.
In this episode, Ben and I break down the concept of uncommon leadership, honing in on the core qualities that drive these trailblazers to push for the best in themselves and others, every single day.
John O'Leary: On Fire - How to Live a Truly Inspired Life
In 1987, John O’Leary was a curious nine-year-old boy. Playing with fire and gasoline, John created a massive explosion in his home and was burned on 100% of his body. He was given less than a 1% chance to live.
His epic story of survival has never felt more relevant. John‘s story, perspective & inspiration have inspired millions of people and 2,000 clients over more than 12 years. John is also a two-time national bestselling author of ON FIRE and IN AWE.
Inside the Mental Health of Elite Athletes
Simone Biles' withdrawal from the Olympics due to mental health issues has been a major topic. Many athletes came out in support of Biles, including Naomi Osaka & Michael Phelps who have dealt with mental health struggles.
Mental health is a major issue in athletics for a lot of reasons: pressure and expectations to win, sacrifice it takes to compete, & the lack of coping away from the sport. In this episode, I hope to bring to light the many difficulties and challenges that these athletes struggle with.
Overcoming Disappointments in Your Performance
One consistent thing I ask my clients is, "What disappoints you most about your performance? And, when those disappointments happen, what does it say about you?" During the course of a competition, we have to be willing to put ourselves out there. We have to be vulnerable because the closer we get to what we want, the riskier it is.
The more success you have, the harder it becomes. Let's take a deep dive into how you can overcome disappointments in your performance & be ready to dominate the next one.
Bhrett does such a good job covering a variety of topics. The show is filled with beautiful insights and wit. His guests offer awesome advice as well. I would recommend this show to anyone looking to be inspired!
