It takes a lot to stand out in today’s ultra-competitive landscape. Fancy business cards and flashy accessories don’t make you stand out and won’t give you the edge to close the deal.

The transition from playing sports to life after is not an easy one for most athletes. Many struggle with an identity crisis and loss of routine, structure, and teammates that it can take many years for them to rebound.

In this talk, Jake shares his own struggles with alcohol, depression, and internalized pain after his sports career ended – and how he was eventually able to pull himself out by applying the skills he learned in sports to life outside of it.

Your team will be fired up to keep competing every day in their life off of the field and equipped with the mindset to win it.

Key Lessons

  1. You Are More than Your Position. It’s easy to get wrapped up in our identity as an athlete. But then we quickly become lost when our playing career ends. Learn how a Competitor is bigger than what they played and how discovering your true self is the first step to pursuing greatness in life beyond the field.
  2. Embrace Your Off-Season. Off-season training is all about focusing on the glory of gameday long before it ever arrives. This same mindset is required to endure internships and bad first-jobs while investing the time into our skill-development.
  3. Competition Doesn’t End with Your Playing Days. Every day is a competition – but instead of finding your opponent on the court, you’ll see him/her in the mirror. Learn how you can beat yesterday and win today, every day.
  4. Choose Your Teammates Wisely. We don’t get to choose our teammates on the field, but it’s important we learn to in life. We are the average of the five closest teammates we keep in life – discover what you need to know to build a lineup that helps you win life.
