Are You Only As Good As You Think
It’s the time of year I like to check in with the “Coach of Champions,” Jim Fannin.
I called Jim to get his insights on The Masters and Sergio Garcia but our conversation went well beyond golf and turned into something that neither Jim nor I expected. It may be one of the most powerful performance conversations we have ever had on the show.
I’m going to ask a favor. Please pass this on.
If you are a parent, pass this episode on to family and other parents on your kid’s teams.
If you are a coach, share this conversation with the other coaches in your organization.
If you are a teacher, forward it to the other teachers in your school. For that matter, your entire school district.
If you own a business or manage people, pass this on to your entire leadership team and employees.

There is so much great information in this conversation about strategies on how you can improve your performance, thoughts on how you can make the people around you better, and some powerful advice for parents on how to support and nurture confidence and self esteem in your children.
