If you’re the smartest guy in the room, you’re in the wrong room

Immunity to learning is a self-imposed curse.

When you stop learning, you are not going to progress any further.

The best athletes and coaches I know all have even better  coaches coaching them.

This takes humility and a hungry desire to achieve excellence.

Being “uncoachable” is very easy to spot in someone —

(Note:  I get rid of people like this as fast as possible at my gym)

  • They do not ask for corrections on their technique
  • When they get a correction anyhow, they just blow it off
  • They don’t value their coach’s knowledge or experience
  • They plateau regularly

Being the big fish in a little pond is nothing compared to being in the ocean where you are at the bottom of the food chain.

No one gives a rip what you did in high school (with terrible technique). You might have been a legend in your own mind back then. It doesn’t matter now that you’re several decades older.

For those who do want to continue to improve, there is a huge amount of credible information available. Don’t rely on the Internet alone for information, dig into great books about training.

No accomplished coach or athlete will ever tell you the journey will be easy or short.

It won’t be, but if you are fully committed to achieving excellence, you will find a way or make one.
