Episode Info: From the football field, to the stage, to becoming a best-selling, author Bo Eason joins us on the Way of Champions Podcast to discuss peaking in youth sports, competing against difficult opponents, and the mentality it takes to be the best in the world.     Highlights from the Podcast: Bo shares a defining moment in his life when he was told he was too small to play football Why most people are lousy at selecting future talent in young athletes Why don’t most high school stars go on to be professionals? What happens when NBA players reach their peak at 15-years-old and why is this happening? How important is it for young athletes to compete against difficult opponents? At what point should an athlete peak? What do you say to a child who’s friends are “playing small” and look at wanting to be a success as being conceited? What did Bo learn the most from being in the NFL? What was it like competing against one of the fastest men in the world? How important is it to be a “5-Star” athlete? What was the most important lesson Bo learned by playing with Jerry Rice? How did Bo end up in acting and getting mentored by Al Pacino? What is the BEST advice Bo wants EVERYONE to know and do?   Bo Eason started his career in the NFL as a top pick for the Houston Oilers. Continuing on with the San Francisco 49ers, during his 5-year career Bo competed beside and against some of the greatest players of his generation.   After his football career ended, he branched out into acting and wrote a one-man play called Runt of the Litter that had an extended off-Broadway and 50- city national run.   Now in his third act, as a speaker and leadership coach, he trains some of the most successful people in the world— athletes, artists, entrepreneurs, C-suite execs—on how to communicate for maximum impact and success. He has consulted for clients like Advisors Excel, Morgan Stanley, Dimensional Fund Advisors, Mass Mutual, Guardian, Merrill Lynch and Bank of America.     Resources mentioned: There's No Plan B for Your A-Game: Be the Best in the World at What You Do, by Bo Eason Every Moment Matters, by John O’Sullivan Super Bowl 49: Not one starter was a 5-star recruit out of high school, by Igor Mello The Talent Code, by Daniel Coyle Book Extras:     Connect with Bo Eason Twitter: Instagram: Website:   Support the Podcast!
