Sports has always been a big part of my life and I’ve always wanted to be a champion.

After football was over, I wanted to know if I could continue to apply the “champion’s mind” into other areas of my life.  As I started to do the same rituals and mindset exercises while growing my business that I used to do in sports, I realized they were all as effective for me in that arena as well… and I loved that it was so similar!

I’m excited to dive into this topic as this is the juicy side of greatness.

Welcome to episode 88 of the School of Greatness with sports psychologist and author, Jim Afremow.
