How I'm Staying Thankful in 2020
For this week's episode, I want to take a step back as we enter the week of Thanksgiving here in the United States to have a little perspective on everything in the year 2020. I don't think many of us could look at 2020 and think it has gone according to anyone's plan or that it was easy. I want to encourage each of you to have some graciousness and gratitude, even if it is in the smallest factors that you're still here. During this holiday season, make sure you take some time for yourself as we all have been through a lot. The stress has been high. The burden has been enormous, and the pains have been real. Please, take some time for you.

Steven C. Hayes: Get Out of Your Mind & Into Your Life
We know this world is challenging us, and I know that there are people suffering from what they feel and what they're thinking. They're just hoping that a brighter day will come. Truth be told, that's in every facet of life, right? That's in sports, business, you name it. Today's guest is someone who seeks to change the way you approach how you think and is an absolute pioneer in our field. He is Steven Hayes, a clinical psychologist that has authored 44 books and almost 600 scientific articles. But what he is most known for, and why he has made such a significant impact on my life and work, is the concept he developed called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or ACT. Dr. Hayes' Ted talks have been viewed over 600,000 times, and he's ranked as one of the most cited psychologists in the world. But. his impact is so much more than that. He is someone who's going to push against the standard to find a better way to do things. Not a more complicated way but a more efficient and more helpful way. His concept of ACT - being aware and accepting of what's going on in our lives and still finding a way through the stress, anxiety, fear, and doubts - has influenced so much of my work and made a huge impact on me.

Mark Blackburn: How to Avoid Hitting a Roadblock with a Player
For this episode of The Secrets to Winning, I sat down with a good friend and 2020 PGA Teacher & Coach of the Year Mark Blackburn to talk about how coaches can manage personalities and egos with different players. Many times, the best coaches aren't the ones who are the most knowledgeable from an Xs and Os or technical standpoint. The coaches who get the best results are the ones who are emotionally intelligent and flexible and understand the true nature of each player. That allows for trust to be built and a greater relationship with the player.

3 Ways to Quiet the Noise Around You
There's a lot of clutter and junk in this world. There's a lot of noise. For my best performers, one of the biggest issues I hear them talk about is "What is the most important thing for me to do to be successful?" It is to put the blinders on and get to work. Every day, we get caught up in the world around us, and we start buying into what the external world is telling us. You're looking for proof and evidence of why you are falling behind. See, that's the trap that the mind gets into when it latches into what somebody else is doing. It's winning. It's telling you that you are not prepared for the challenge in front of you. So, you romanticize and see the drama going on around you. I want to give you three ways that I have found to be effective in getting the highest performers to quiet the noise and clutter going on around them.

How to F.I.G.H.T. Low Motivation and High Anxiety
This was a webinar I did during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the content is still applicable today, especially in the sports world. We are seeing games being postponed, some teams choosing not to play, no fans in the stands - it's just really weird and something we have really never experienced before. Unfortunately, it is also bringing some collegiate athletic departments to cut sports, cut or furlough staff positions, and/or cancel entire seasons. It sucks; there is no doubt about that. What I want to do with this episode is to reiterate some tools and strategies you can utilize to overcome the low motivation and high anxiety you may be feeling as a result of this pandemic. Many people have asked me, "Doc, what can I do during this time to lower fear and anxiety and stay motivated?" To borrow the phrase from my good friend Dr. Kevin Chapman, you can F.I.G.H.T. How to F.I.G.H.T. Low Motivation and High Anxiety: - F - Focus on what you can control - I - Interpret your negative thoughts - G - Grab some mental flexibility - H - Healthy behaviors need to be established - T - Teach someone

Jeremy Bhandari: How World-Class Athletes Got To The Top
What does it take to get to the top of your field? It's a question I get asked a lot and one that every athlete or competitive person wants to know the answer to. That's why I was fascinated to have this week's guest on the podcast. In his book Trust the Grind: How World-Class Athletes Got To The Top, Jeremy Bhandari interviewed 16 of the top athletes in their field to reveal how these men and women reached the heights of their profession so that you can too. If you are like me, you are always studying the best in their field to see how particular individuals achieved their level of success but also how they maintained it over a long period of time. In this episode, you are sure to learn from Jeremy's interviews with these world-class athletes the secrets behind success, and what it takes to remain on top. We talk about the value that comes with becoming disciplined, staying driven, setting goals, identifying your “why”, staying active and eating right, making sacrifices, obsessing over your passion, and more. Rather than harping on the remarkable accolades and astonishing statistics, this story is formulated to teach individuals what it takes to be great in any desired field. It includes interviews with the following athletes:

Tim Corbin: The Pillars of a National Championship Program
There may not be an active college baseball coach as good or as well respected as Tim Corbin. Vanderbilt’s head coach has claimed two national championships, four SEC titles and won multiple national coach of the year honors during his time in Nashville leading one of the best programs in the entire league. In his 17 seasons at the helm, he has transformed the Commodores into a national power. The Commodores would likely be in the midst of another run at the SEC title and College World Series if not for the NCAA’s need to cancel the baseball season following the coronavirus pandemic across the nation. The reason for Corbin's continued success? It is the culture he has created. He is very much a coach that coaches the person first and the player second. Just ask Vanderbilt alum and Major League Baseball Cy Young winner David Price, who says of Corbin, "He turned me into a man. Just watching how he treated everybody like they were the most special person in the world...times change, but Coach Corbin doesn't." Wow. Pretty high praise coming from the former number one overall pick. As you listen to this interview with Coach Corbin, you are sure to pick up a ton of great information you can implement in your program to begin enhancing your culture right away!

Tanner Guzy: The Appearance of Power
The way you dress is oftentimes a window into your soul. It's an understanding of your confidence, self-belief, and how you view yourself. Today's guest is going to give us a little insight into that mindset, and he's going to take it from the men's perspective. So for my female listeners, this isn't a time to turn it off but just know that we're going to dive into an area that most men don't really think about. They assume that somebody can take care of it for them or that the next pair of khakis and blue shirt is going to work for them. This topic is actually one aspect of what I do with the Catalyst School. We dive into the best way to make you the most influential and confident person you can be. Our guest this week is Tanner Guzy, Men's Style Coach, Founder of Masculine Style, and Author of The Appearance of Power. I came across Tanner and his work on social media after seeing some of his tweets about dress and appearance and how they relate to confidence and performance. I've always been fascinated from a male standpoint of identifying the right thing to wear, What is my style? What type of clothing fits my style? I tend to go to the most conservative, most comfortable way. I'm a big guy, and I just really want clothes that fit. But, I don't think that mindset always allows me to present myself in the best manner possible. When I've done stage work or presented, I tend to fall back on the khaki pants and a jacket, but it's so conservative. And it's like, "Hey, I took the easy way out." Is there something better? The people that I study and love to learn from have a little edgier style. Is that me? I don't know. So I had to bring Tanner on to talk about it. If you want more information about Tanner, make sure you check him out at masculine-style(dot)com or pick up his book, The Appearance of Power. If you want to understand what he means by power - authority, presence, action - make sure you check out his book. Very easy to read and tons of information about what you need to be wearing and how to identify YOUR style.

There's so much uncertainty in today's world, especially in college athletics. When you take a look at the scope of college athletics, there has long been the discussion regarding the name, image, and likeness issue surrounding athletes and their ability - or lack thereof - to profit on their likeness as a college athlete. It is an interesting debate, with individuals on both sides of the issue giving their viewpoint. Our guest on this week's episode is someone who has been very outspoken on the issue. Dr. Chris Yandle is a former college athletics administrator and award-winning public relations professional that has worked across the various levels of college athletic departments. He is a really valuable resource at looking at how and what the different demands of college athletics are.

Bennie Fowler: The Imperfect Guide to Success
This week, I sat down with NFL wide receiver Bennie Fowler - somebody who gave me a really nice perspective on circumstances and challenges. In the NFL, it's not easy to compete. You've got people coming for your job on a regular basis, AND if you're an undrafted player like Bennie, it's even harder. You're expendable. Within the workforce - if you look at metrics like performance or success - people are expendable. Competitors are always coming for our jobs. What happens if you come from a background where you were really successful, you were good in school, and your family was successful? Does that make it easier or harder? Usually, we want our circumstances to define our experience. For example, if we're struggling, we look at our circumstances as making us a victim. Yet, we want to have better circumstances so that we can take advantage of that. So, if we're from a successful background, does that make it easier or harder? I think most people would probably say that makes it easier. But, does it? Let's dive into this conversation with Bennie and let him explain.

Kwame Agyemang: How to Start the Conversation Society Needs to Hear
The Secrets to Winning Podcast is not always about winning on the field. Sometimes, it's about winning the issues going on in the world. There is a lot of tension in this world right now, and we have a very, very important discussion about race in the United States and how that relates to police brutality, justice, and individual differences. I didn't want to be one of those individuals that got up and "virtue-signaled" or said how it needed to be because I don't know. But I am a guy who wants to hear from people who invest their time, put their butts on the line, and form opinions that we should all listen to. Today's guest - Kwame Agyemang - is one of those individuals that I've come to really, really respect because of his thoughtfulness and his insight. And, most importantly, because he wants to have a discussion. He understands the sports world. He understands topics of race, managing social change, and unifying voices, and also amplifying voices. And he is somebody who I followed on social media for some time. I could not wait to have this conversation about race in the United States and across the world.

L.A.B. Golf's Sam Hahn & Bill Presse: Changing How You Feel About Putting
This week's guests are Sam Hahn and Bill Presse from L.A.B. Golf, makers of a cutting-edge new putting technology. All golfers have had those days when their putting stroke feels completely off. What they’re feeling is torque — the twisting of the putter head — the enemy of consistent putting. Lie Angle Balance (L.A.B.) is a patented technology that simplifies putting. It eliminates torque from the design of a putter, giving all golfers the ability to consistently repeat their stroke — especially when the pressure is on.

Jeff King: How To Turn Your Hobby Into A Business
This is just an incredible story. I first had Kingmade Jerky about 6 years ago while working with one of my PGA Tour players during a practice round. It was literally the best I had ever tasted, and it came from a Ziploc bag out of one of the other players' golf bags. Fast forward to 2020 and Kingmade Jerky is the "Official Meat Snack of the PGA Tour". I sat down with founder Jeff King to talk about the origin of Kingmade Jerky, how it took off, the challenges of starting a business (especially when it was completely unexpected), and how it is one of the fastest-growing meat snacks in the U.S.
