Why a New Year’s Resolution Is Not Enough


I’ve got a big problem with New Year’s Resolutions. Don’t get me wrong: If you’re looking ahead at 2020 with some big goals for yourself, I applaud you. As I always tell you, championships are scheduled, and putting some stakes in the ground for the coming year is a great way to get better and […]


Wishing You a Merry Christmas: The Power of Traditions


I fell down on one of our Eason family traditions. If you’re a parent, you can probably guess what I forgot to do a few days ago. Yes, that’s right: I forgot to move our Elf on the Shelf, “Elfie.” My 10-year-old daughter, Lyla, was not happy to find Elfie in the same spot two […]


Getting Out of My Comfort Zone and Other Wins for 2019


It’s an ongoing battle—pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. It’s too easy to play it safe. In your comfort zone, you’re protected, you probably won’t fail and you definitely won’t embarrass yourself. But you probably won’t achieve greatness, either. Dawn and I discussed a few weeks ago that a lot of coaches, speakers and […]


Why I “Compete” With Brendon Burchard (And Why That’s a Good Thing!)


In Part 1 of this video, I told you that Brendon Burchard inspired me to write There’s No Plan B for Your A-Game. Why did he inspire me? Because Brendon and I have a little competition thing going on—and that’s a GOOD thing. It’s a healthy competition. We push each other to be better, and […]

Your peer group is everything. When you’re competing shoulder-to-shoulder with other Players, it naturally raises the level of your game. In my very first NFL game, I had to guard a guy who had just won an Olympic gold medal in the 4x100m relay. In other words, he was one of the four fastest men […]


How to Keep Going, No Matter What


Every year for Christmas, my dad gave my brother Tony and me a brand new football. We would throw and catch that ball 1,000 times every day for the entire year. Dad had one rule: “Don’t let the ball touch the ground.” It wasn’t a threat, it was a life lesson. That’s because Dad was […]

These Three Steps Have a Habit of Making Your Biggest Dreams Inevitable


How do you achieve your REALLY BIG dreams? I’m talking the “top draft pick in the NFL” dreams. The “I want to dance like Mikhail Baryshnikov,” the “share the stage with Yo-Yo Ma,” the “top consultant who’s in such high demand that people fly you around the world for a single keynote” dreams. You know—the […]


Why You’re Going to Be Off-Course 99% of the Time (And What to Do About It)


Life gets in the way of our dreams. Beyond your basic distractions, you’ve got vacations, family emergencies, unexpected deadlines and more. Sometimes, life just happens. The truth is, once you commit to your dream, you’re going to be off course 99% of the time. Sounds outrageous, I know. But your job isn’t to be on […]


Who’s Influencing Your Personal Story?


You will succeed or fail based on the stories you tell. (If you’re not convinced, watch the video, and I’ll explain why.) Now, when it comes to crafting YOUR story, there’s one person who’s absolutely critical to the process. That person will be the single greatest influence on the story you’re going to share with […]
