Great book! I really enjoyed it. It was a quick read with a lot of great info I could implement right away.
Purchased “Compete Every Day” for some young bankers with great potential! They will succeed and achieve great things not only in their careers, but in life!
Great book. Need more people who compete in daily life.

Quick read. I enjoyed reading about some of the athletes mentioned, in particular Heather Dorniden. I teach fifth grade and will utilize that video to help with the kids choosing not to give up when things get tough. I found myself nodding in agreement with many of the truths in the book, especially how NOT to let yourself be controlled by things/people/events you can’t control.
Great read! Spot on! and will use many ideas and thoughts with my high school basketball team as well as in my own life.
This book is life changing!
the compete every book and podcast has been instrumental in my outlook on life business and fitness
Absolutely love this book. Very easy, direct read, that is both motivating in being a coach for MMA as well as just changing my outlook on how I set and attack my own goals.

Compete every day
Just started reading it. In chapter 4 so far. Hits the issues that I've been going through. Can't waite to see what the rest of the book has in store.
Day One vs One Day
This book was a perfect perception and foundation to push each of us a little harder each day to reach our goals. The part of the book that truly grasped me was day one vs one day. As we all have the art of procrastination to say we'll get around to something but the energy and enthusiasm that day one brings is such a marvelous experience. This book is definitely one I will read time and time again.
One heck of a good read
I have listened to the podcast and seen the gear that compete everyday offered and loved it. With that being said I was curious about the mind of one of the people behind the content. I can say after reading it that you will not be disappointed. I purchased the paperback because it allows me to become more apart of what I am reading and I am excited to go back and highlight key points. No matter where you are in your journey this book is for you. You need a kickstart here it is. You need something to keep you hungry here’s the book for you! Buy right now and you won’t be disappointed!
Practical and Insightful
I found the insights that are delivered at the end of each chapter to be extremely helpful. Instead of only providing compelling reasons for why we need to do better (and there are certainly plenty of reasons!), each chapter concludes with practical insights to transform ourselves for the better.
The insights focus on small, impactful ways to improve our health and, more broadly, our professional and personal lives. I took Jake's insights for how to strengthen my professional network. Within the past few weeks, I have made more intentional LinkedIn connections and, in doing so, it has helped close more client partnerships for our research center.
Are you ready to start a new project, stuck in a rut, own a business, recent graduate, or somewhere in-between? If so, this book is for you.
Jake's advice is tangible, actionable, and easy to digest. Use his secrets as a tool to better yourself and those around you. It's simply good stuff.

Stay In the Game
I love books, always have. And I love to read books that help me be a better individual, leader and coach. This book had it all. A great reminder that it is okay to fail but not to stay there.
I love the fact that it was short and had some great nuggets that you could take away and use immediately, I am looking forward to using the scorecard personally and giving to my managers.
Keep Leading others to find and use their calling.
I recommend this book to everyone who needs a reminder of what they are made of on the inside and how important it is to live that out. Not only for yourself but for the world.
As the saying goes...'If you lick from the lollipop of mediocrity... you will suck forever.' This book exemplifies what it means to do the opposite and truly COMPETE in life.
If you feel stuck or aren't where you want to be in life. Perhaps it's not the environment you are in or the circumstances you have been dealt. Consider the possibility that it's the mindset that you have held onto as being a victim in life. It's time to bring out the victor mentality my COMPETING with YOU by winning the day. Everyday.
Get this book and begin the competition with the one in the mirror today.
