Are You on The Path to Becoming Unstoppable?
Between the years of 1991 and 2013, there were 23 NBA championships won, and 14 of those were won by teams led by just 3 men — Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Dwayne Wade. There is only one man who has helped bring out the best in 14 different NBA championship teams. His name is Tim Grover, and he personally trained elite champions Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Dwayne Wade.
You may not play basketball, I don’t, but Tim knows how to train champions and knows what it takes to DOMINATE.
Tim Grover talked about 3 types of people at the last 10XGrowthCon:
1) Coolers — this is the individual who is good at what they do. Coolers can have a great day. Everybody has said, “I’ve had a great day.”
2) Closers — this is a highly-motivated person who, if given the script, can get you the desired result so long as a lot of variables aren’t thrown at them. Closers can have a great month.
3) Cleaners — this is someone unstoppable, who will get you a result no matter what, they will figure out how to get it done. A cleaner has a great year over and over and over again.
These apply to every job, to every role. A teacher can be a cleaner — so it’s not about the income level, it’s about getting the results you want. Here’s what Tim Grover said about cleaners:
“Cleaners need to finish. They always need to finish, no matter what the circumstances are. Everybody knows how to start something, but very few people know how to finish.
If you have to tell yourself you’re a cleaner, you’re not a cleaner. That’s not your job. It’s for somebody else to recognize you’re a cleaner. Anybody can do something one time. The ability to repeat it over and over again takes a skill set that is second to none.
Your mindset has to be right first in order for you to achieve that next level, no matter what it is. Cleaners know there’s always another level. You should put more pressure on yourself than anybody else should ever do.
Cleaners don’t want to congratulate their success. They just want to keep going. They also know two things happen, either you’re getting better or you’re getting worse. If you’re staying the same, you’re getting worse.
The people that win the marathon — guess what? They’re finishing the race sprinting, not walking or pacing. You must go harder when everyone’s had enough. Everyone talks about working hard but that is not enough. I know a lot of individuals that are talented, that work hard, that never succeed at anything.
The greatest individuals, in business or sports, they play with one emotion. One, that’s it. That emotion is what you decide to be.”
Tim Grover really made me consider how relentless I truly am. In your business and in your life, you make decisions constantly. There are the everyday decisions like what to have for dinner and what movie to see; but then there are the big decisions calling for BIG leadership.
One thing I’ve noticed is that when we refuse to decide, that in itself is a decision. It’s actually a decision to continue with the way things are.
All decisions have a cost associated with them.
If you are going to become unstoppable, the first step is to decide to become unstoppable. I want you to be at the upcoming 10X Growth Conference in Las Vegas — it’s time you decide on this — that is the first step to any success. Will you make that decision today?
