Former big leaguer Brandon Barnes shares his baseball journey, from playing multiple sports in high school to transitioning to baseball in college. He discusses the challenges he faced and the mindset that drove him to succeed. Brandon emphasizes the importance of mental development and the need for a competitive mindset in youth sports. The conversation explores the importance of winning and achieving success in sports, the need to understand the numbers and have a plan B, the identity crisis that athletes face after their sports career ends, and the importance of preparing for life after sports. It also discusses the impact of Athlete Narrative in helping athletes build their personal brand and transition to a new career. The conversation concludes with the announcement of the official launch of Athlete Narrative and the anticipation of future partnerships.   Key Takeaways Having a strong work ethic and a mindset of continuous improvement is crucial for success in sports and life. The mental aspect of the game is often overlooked but is a key differentiator at higher levels of competition. Parents and coaches should focus on teaching young athletes the mental skills needed to handle failure and develop a competitive mindset. Youth sports should prioritize the enjoyment of the game and the development of skills, rather than winning championships and trophies. Winning and achieving success in sports is important, but it's crucial to understand that sports careers are temporary and have a plan B for life after sports. Athletes often face an identity crisis when their sports career ends, and it's important to have a sense of self beyond being an athlete. Preparing for life after sports should be a priority, and athletes should explore other interests and develop skills outside of their sport. Athlete Narrative provides a platform for athletes to build their personal brand, monetize their name, image, and likeness, and transition to a new career. Building a personal brand is essential for athletes, and sharing aspects of their life beyond sports can help engage their fans and followers.   Connect With Brandon- Instagram- Connect with Shawn- Instagram- Join Athlete Narrative with 10% OFF-

As a Citizen of the World, Nick Connor has learned that no matter where you go, your presence, energy, and the way you make people feel, is the only language you need to speak. As a speaker, coach, & the founder of The Academy Of Maximum Potential (AMP) his in-your-face but on-your-side message cuts through the noise and gets straight to the point. Nick is obsessed with maximizing human potential and is here today to equip you with what you need to finally commit to unlocking the best version of yourself, so you can positively impact and influence others. Key Conversation Points: 1. Wake Up Earlier Than Your Responsibilities - Creating time and space to think, feel, and exercise! You'll elevate emotionally, rise above the distractions, temptations, and repeat behaviors that are crushing your finances, relationships, and fitness. 2. Focus On Removing (-) Behaviors vs. Adding (+) Behaviors - You're your biggest problem! Want to change that? Remove inconsistent results and uncertainty by removing repeat behaviors that bring you pain (alcohol, porn, drugs, snoozing, over eating, over spending, etc). Remove 2-3 of these and in 12 months you won't recognize your life. 3. Actively Recognize Mistakes & Shortcomings Daily Successful people focus on their shortcomings and failures WHILE remaining grateful for their life. Unsuccessful people hide their shortcomings and failures and project an image of success WHILE secretly having their existence. Stop it! 4. Remind Yourself Daily Who You Are, Where You're Going, & Why You're mind is like a heat seeking missile - it needs feedback to reach the target. If you do not intentionally provide directions, your mind will default to what it's always known - which has landed you exactly where you are today. If that isn't motivation enough to get you to follow step #4...sorry, I can't help you. 5. Pour into others daily - NEWSFLASH - it's not all about you! Nothing will accelerate your growth than taking what you know and teaching it to others. Don't let your lack of experience, depth of knowledge, or EGO get in the way. Just share what works for you.
