The response to being down and out, kicked to the curb, defeated, behind by an insurmountable amount, and completely written off is what separates those with true mastery at the highest levels from the rest.

This episode is about the lessons we can take away from the Super Bowl, and the comeback mounted by Tom Brady and the Patriots. There are several takeaways we can learn from observing the greats at work, not the least of which is that even the greats get far behind and beat down sometimes. It’s the response that really matters.

Join us on this episode of Have It All as we talk about comebacks, resilience, responses to being beat, why future-pacing is a mistake, and why true masters are constantly learning, all on this episode of Have It All!

The Cliff Notes:

  • If you’re in a slump, one of the most difficult things to do is figure out how to get out of it
  • Your brain is either in the present moment, focused on what you’re doing, or future pacing
  • Future pacing will cause you to get out of the moment, and cause you to make mistakes
  • After you take your foot off the gas, it’s extremely difficult to get back to the momentum you had
  • True masters know that they are always just getting started
  • Mastery is the choice to be a constant student
  • Sometimes you need things to happen that humble you
  • Create a new perspective on losses, and make them fuel you and not destroy you
  • Whether good or bad, focus on experiencing every moment
  • Give yourself deadlines to experience pain and loss. Don’t resist it, just know when you’re going to get out of it

Whether good or bad, focus on experiencing every moment
