In this episode of The Jeff & Heidi Show Podcast we hear from Tami Matheny and learn of her entrepreneurial journey.
Tami Matheny, Mental Game Coach, Author, and Jon Gordon Certified Trainer
Tami Matheny became a Mental Game Coach in 2008 and started Refuse2LoseCoaching, LLC. In 2018, she became an author as well. Recently she became a part of the Jon Gordon Team and is certified to present workshops on “The Power of Positive Leadership” and “The Power of Positive Teams”
Tami knows the role the intangibles play in career success and longevity and has had experience with working on the mental skills at the collegiate level with tennis, basketball, softball, baseball, volleyball, golf, field hockey, cross country and soccer student-athletes. In addition, she has worked with recreational athletes, post collegiate athletes and junior high/high school athletes in golf, soccer, volleyball, tennis, basketball, running, and weight lifting. She has a passion for sports and how the mental game affects performance.
Tami believes that while it’s important to work on the physical and technical aspects of sport, the mental side is just as important; mental skills are often the differentiating factor for the most successful athletes. Tami understands that talent cannot always overcome a lack of confidence or mental toughness, but a high level of confidence and mental toughness can often overcome a lack of talent. She enjoys interacting and working hands on with coaches, athletes, and teams to make a difference.
In addition to working with student-athletes and teams, Tami has written “The Confident Athlete: 4 Easy Steps to Build and Maintain Confidence” as well as “The Confidence Journal”. Tami also has spoken at numerous professional conferences across the nation, various businesses, Rotary Clubs, and churches.
In high school, Tami was a tennis and basketball standout at East Rutherford High School and is in the Hall of Fame. She graduated from Lenoir-Rhyne College with a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 1993 and earned a master’s degree in sports administration from the University of North Carolina in 1999. In college, she was a scholarship student-athlete in both tennis and basketball. She was named the 1993 NCAA Woman of the Year for North Carolina while at Lenoir-Rhyne.
Before becoming a Mental Game Coach, Tami Matheny was one of the most successful tennis coaches in USC Upstate tennis history. Working physically and mentally with the men and women’s teams to produce nationally ranked teams, conference champions, and numerous individual awards.
Matheny became the head men and women’s tennis coach at USC Upstate in 1998. During her five-year stint with the tennis programs, she elevated the programs to levels never seen. In her first two seasons as coach, Matheny led the women’s team to a remarkable improvement, as the team went from 0-12 the year before she took the job to 9-16 in 2000 and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 2003. The men similarly quickly developed after an 0-12 before season in her first year. The Rifles won five matches the next year before reaching the NCAA Tournament in 2001. By 2003, Matheny earned the Peach Belt Conference Men’s Coach of the Year, thanks to leading the Rifles to a 20-2 overall record and a share of the Peach Belt Conference regular season crown. Matheny coached the men to the Peach Belt Conference championship match and to the NCAA Tournament for the third straight time. On the women’s side, a 15-8 record helped the Lady Rifles earn their first bid to the NCAA Tournament since 1995. The women finished the season ranked 25th in Division II. In total, Matheny coached one All-American, five All-Peach Belt Conference selections and 39 Peach Belt Presidential Honor Roll selections. She took the Spartan men to the NCAA Division II Tournament a school-record-tying three times.
After transitioning to Associate Athletic Director, Matheny continued to stay involved with both tennis programs as Tennis Director. With the implementation of her “Mental Toughness Program” the Spartan women’s tennis team won its first regular season league title in school history in 2008, sweeping the Atlantic Sun Conference slate with a perfect 11-0 record. The men’s team followed suit in 2010, ending the year nationally ranked with a perfect 10-0 conference record.
Aside from the USC Upstate tennis teams, Tami worked with the women’s basketball team in 2010 as a mental coach. With Tami’s help, the team improved from 7th to 3rd in the conference and finished with a 20-win season which culminated in Freshman of the Year, Coach of the Year and the best year seen in women’s basketball at Upstate in over a decade.
Throughout the years, she has worked with a handful of collegiate and high school teams in a variety of sports. She also has worked with individuals who needed to strengthen their mental game in order to achieve the goals that are necessary to compete at the collegiate level or prefer them for life in general. Recreational athletes have seen improvement in their game as well after working with Tami.
This past year, Tami became a certified Jon Gordon speak and trainer of The Power of Positive Leadership and The Power of Positive Teams.

Hey, welcome back. Jeff Heggie daily success strategies. Thanks for being with me today. I’m anxious to share this with you today. I’ve got an incredible interview with a world champion athlete that I’ve just been excited about this interview. Plus being able to share it with everybody. Now, this athlete is Tyson Durfey, world champion. Tie-down Roper. He’s made the NFR 14 times. So for you that aren’t in the rodeo world, um, he’s an incredible athlete, done some amazing things. And I’m really excited to talk about these things and share other episodes down the road with you because we had such a great interview. But today, what I want to share with you is the things he talks about, and this is applicable to high school athletes, college athletes, professional athletes, entrepreneurs, coaches, whatever it is, this isn’t just applicable to Cowboys. This is applicable to so many people that are trying to achieve their goals and get to another level. But we’re going to talk about the things that it takes to be world-class to be a world champion. And he’s going to talk about some of those things and he just share some valuable information. So listen to this and I’ll be right back with you.
I’ll tell you one thing that I’ve studied, you know, most professionals, if you guys have ever read the book outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, it talks about, you know, putting in 10,000 hours of practice. Now the average world champion puts in 10,000 or excuse me, the average professional puts in 10,000 hours of practice. And, you know, I took that a step further. I’m like, well, if the average professional puts in 10,000 hours of practice, well, how many hours does the average world champion put in? And so I started doing all this research and looking around and, and believe it or not, there’s not a lot of research on that specific topic, but I did find a number. The average world champion puts in about 20,000 hours of practice. Okay. But it goes above and beyond just the practice. It’s, self-image, it’s how you look at yourself, right?
And it’s how you get confidence. And the way that I got confidence might be different than other people. You know, I grew up from, uh, my dad was raised by a world war II vet. So they were like really, really, you know, tough. And they believed in building you up by tearing you down. So that was kind of like the strategy to make it tough and get you prepared for the world. So I had a lot of stuff to get confidence. Like I had to practice hard to have confidence. My parents didn’t instill confidence in me as a child. So I found my confidence. And by putting in that practice and to this day, right now, I’m about 32,000 hours of practice for, for what I do. And I don’t know if you looked at multiple time world champions, I’m probably behind, you know, how many gold buckles you get or will champion you to get it with that many hours of practice.
But so what I did was in high school, I was like, okay. My dad told me, he was like, you’re not going to make it. If you don’t put in this much work, I’m like, okay, well let’s just put it in that much work let’s put in that much work. What does that look like? All right. So I get up at four 30 to five o’clock in the morning. I practice my flanking and tying and my writing before I go to school, okay. I go to school, I get out of school. I need to make money to pay for all of this. Cause rodeo, you know, as you know is not a rich man’s game to start with or for most people. Right. But I’m like, okay, I need to make money. So how am I going to fuel the money to pay the entry fees, to pay the travel, to pay all this stuff?
Okay. I’m going to shoe horses. I’m going to be diligent at it. And I’m going to save my money all the way through high school. Okay. So I did that. So every day I got out of school, I’d go shoot two or three horses and make a, you know, a hundred bucks to 300 bucks, depending on how hard I worked, I call it like the immigrant edge. Like that’s how my mindset works. So I made a hundred, I only spent 10 bucks a day and I was very read 10 months a day and I got to save this other money. And so when I graduated high school, I had thousands and thousands and thousands of hours of practice. And then also had the money as well. And then after I got into chewing the horses each day, I would go home and I would practice tell about 11 o’clock at night, sometimes midnight like that.
Just that just my family. We work really, really hard. And um, people say, well, that can’t be right. Why didn’t you go to high school dances? Or didn’t you go to prom or didn’t you go to football games? And the firm answer for me was, no, I didn’t go to one single high school football game, not one single high school, basketball game. I didn’t go to prom. I didn’t go to any dances. I just worked like I worked, worked, worked work. Now that’s my path that does. That’s not the path for everybody. I had a lot of catching up to do because I didn’t believe in myself. If I made a mistake, I would spend an hour beating myself up, telling myself I was stupid. That I was no good that I wasn’t going to make it because that’s the habit that I learned from my parents, from my dad.
Right. That’s how he motivated himself. And I didn’t realize that world champions don’t look at things that way. Right? You got to build and have sustainable confidence that takes you through the valleys and the peaks. And for me, the way that I got that was the amount of practice that I put in. I felt like I actually deserved more than the other competitors. So when I’d go to a competition, I’d say, all right, none of these other guys woke up at five o’clock and put two hours in before they went to school. None of these other guys went on four hours of sleep last night or five hours of sleep. Last night, none of these other guys had to go shoot three horses every single day for the last four years to be at this rodeo. And so I began to build myself up that way and it’s kind of part of my, I call it my pregame prep routine.
It’s it’s, it’s building myself up to really see that confidence in my mind saying, okay, you deserve this more than anybody else because you grinded and worked so hard. Now, like I said, that does not work for everybody and you don’t have to do it just like I did it, but that’s what got me to that point. Or, you know what I believe in myself, I can do it. I’m going go do this. You know that that’s awesome. I, I, it reminds me of another world champion, Michael Phelps. He talks about, you know, in the swimming world, they practice hard. They go five days a week. I mean, six days a week. Well, doing that in the swimming world take off is like two steps back. So you’re on Monday, you’re starting over again. So he was going seven days a week looking at it as the same way.
No one else is doing what I’m doing. So that’s where my confidence is coming from. And he also, I remember listening in, uh, the compound effect, Darren Hardy talks about Michael Phelps, having a big memory of, he actually got off practice a little bit early one day, so he could go to a high school dance. I mean, so, so yeah, you, you’ve got a sacrifice and you know, as I talked to high school athletes and we talk about the 10,000 hours. Yeah. They, I think, I don’t think it really clues in until you start putting it into perspective. I mean, if you look at, did you say 32,000 hours? That’s where I’m at right now. Yep. Yep. So that’s 4,008 hour days. Yeah, that’s a lot. Yeah. And so I think it is, but one thing I go back to like the 10,000 hours for the people that I’m into, or it’s not, it’s a goal, but it’s a lifestyle, it’s a lifestyle.
So it’s not like, Oh man, I’m an hour, hour, 122. I only got 9,800. You know what I’m saying? Like, it’s a lifestyle becomes who you are and it, and it embodies everything that you do. And you know, what, if you love what you do, it doesn’t matter. And that’s, that’s another topic that’s so important, you know, Michael Phelps. Yeah. He grinded. And I remember reading his book like 10 years ago and you know, he’s winning all these gold buckles and doing all this amazing stuff. And he’s winning by like a thousands of a second. Like, it’s not like he’s winning by three tenths of a second. You know what I’m saying? So if he hadn’t to put in that extra work, that dieting, that stretching, that swimming, that always hours in the pool and the gym, like he could have easily went and ended up second. And I hate to say it, but the only person that remembers second place is the person that got it. You know what I’m saying? And because I’ve been there so many times, I’ve been on the cusp of winning a world championship five times. And the ones that hurt the most are the ones where I was so close and fell short. Yeah.
Hey, thanks Tyson. I really appreciate that. I hope you all can listen to that and realize, you know, whatever your goals are, whatever you’re trying to achieve, whether you’re an entrepreneur, a coach, an athlete, a cowboy, whatever it is, those goals that you have, how bad do you want them and what are you willing to do to achieve those, those goals? You know, are you willing to put the 10, 20, 30, 2000 hours in to achieve your dreams? If you’re a high school athlete right now, and you’ve got dreams of making it big, what is your commitment? Are you willing to give up the things that you need to, to really focus on your goals? And like Tyson said, you know, it’s not for everybody. You can be an exceptional athlete. You can be an exceptional entrepreneur without that commitment level. But if you really want to be world-class, if you want to be a world champion, there is another commitment level that you’ve got to be able to say, yes, that’s what I’m going to do because I love it because I want to do it.
And so thanks Tyson, I’ve got more of these episodes coming. We had such a great conversation and he shared so much valuable information. I can’t wait to share them all with you. So stay tuned for those. I’ll be sharing those, but make sure to go follow Tyson on all his social media. He’s got great content that he adds there as well. I’ll make sure everything’s in the show notes and check out the programs he has. You know, there’s no limit mentoring. He’s got a program coming up soon. TDX, that will be outstanding, but please go follow them. And I look forward to sharing more of this with you as for my stuff.

Listen to Jeff Heggie and Ann Justi speak on the topic of goal setting and new years resolutions in the ASK YOUR COACH group.
Everyone’s talking about setting new goals for 2021, right? We all know that you can’t achieve your goals if you don’t know what they are, so this is important. But what almost no one understands about setting and achieving goals is the concept of understanding your ‘why’ for each goal. It’s not just the act of setting goals that helps you to achieve them, it’s having clarity on why you MUST achieve them, and the actions you need to take to succeed. And that can happen even if you set goals at this time every year but give up on them within a month (or less), as long as you are clear on what you need to do.
If you’re interested in a FREE, personal strategy session which will include everything I teach in my Goal Setting Masterclass, email me at email@example.com with the subject “2021 Goals” today!

Daxon Heggie | 6’2″ 210 lbs | 3.4 gpa | Casteel High School, Queen Creek AZ
One of my great joys in life has been watching my children play their favorite sport. When Daxon was in 2nd grade, we were living in Cardston AB and I had the opportunity to coach him on his first tackle football team. Between basketball and football I had the opportunity to coach him a number of times, but more than a coach, I was his fan.
When we moved to Arizona Daxon began school at American Leadership Academy in Queen Creek. He expressed interest in moving to the quarterback position and was fortunate to have Max Hall (BYU & Arizona Cardinals) as one of the coaches. Max worked hard with Daxon which gave him the opportunity to fill the quarterback position on the junior varsity team his freshman year.
Unfortunately, in the final game of the season, Daxon broke his leg which required surgery and a long recovery.
Daxon loved football, but at the time basketball was really his sport. Because of his broken leg he missed his freshman year of basketball and as a sophomore decided not to play football.
But by his junior year he was eager to get back on the football field and after a great season was able to be a part of the American Leadership Academy 3A State Championship team!
During this time our family had moved. Daxon’s younger sister, Jovi, had transferred to a school that was closer to our new home, Casteel High School. Daxon wanted the opportunity to play his senior year at a 6A school and also transferred at the semester break of his junior year. Because of transfer rules, he knew that this would mean that he would have to sit out half of the regular season games, but he would still be able to play in the spring games, the second half of the season and playoffs.
For recruiting purposes, he knew that spring football would be important for him to gain the attention of college coaches. In March I was on a recruiting trip with him Daxon. It had been a great trip. We visited USC, UCLA, Utah State, Weber State. We were at Southern Utah University and had plans to visit Dixie State the following day. As we were eating lunch at SUU, we saw a press conference in which the government announced shut down rules because of COVID-19.
Unfortunately this ended up meaning there was no spring football. But we were all grateful that they still had the opportunity to play an abbreviated season. Daxon still had to sit out half of their games because of the transfer, but he was able to have a great second half of the season and some playoff games until they were eliminated by Highland in a 30-20 loss. He was able to play in Casteel’s final five games.
2020 was the first year Casteel played in the 6A division. They had a good year and finished as the 6A Fiesta Region Champions.

Jeff Heggie is an entrepreneur and success coach with a passion for helping others achieve their biggest dreams. As a coach, Jeff starts with a focus on mindset. Taking his client or their business to the next level always begins with the right mindset. Jeff enjoys using his extensive experience in the banking industry, over 20 years as an entrepreneur, plus his training and experience as a coach to help his clients break through the mental and physical barriers that are holding them back.
Jeff and his wife, Tamara, both grew up in Southern Alberta but now make Arizona home. Family and sports have always been important to him. He loves spending his time coaching or watching his kids. He’s a former professional rodeo cowboy and has over 20 years experience coaching basketball.
Please tell us a little bit about your company – what is (Jeff Heggie Coaching) all about?
As a coach, a lot of my focus is spent working with entrepreneurs and growing their businesses. Many of my clients have been in the early start-up phase of their business which has given me the opportunity to be involved from the beginning. But I also have a number of clients who are small business owners looking to build their business by increasing their leads and conversions. We focus on proven business and marketing strategies that enable them to do this without increasing the amount of money they are spending on marketing and advertising.
Aside from entrepreneurs I also work with athletes, coaches, and other high achievers who want to discover their full potential and achieve their big dreams. As an entrepreneur, professional rodeo athlete, and a basketball coach I’ve seen how developing a powerful mindset can make the difference between success and failure in all areas of life.
In addition to business coaching, I also focus a lot on mindset coaching in many different niches. Entrepreneurs begin their journey with big hopes and dreams but often get sidetracked with the challenges of running a business. This often slows down their progress, exposes self-doubt and limiting beliefs, and holds them back from what they are truly capable of. But once they regain control of their mindset, they can get back on track, overcome the things holding them back and do amazing things.
When it comes to athletes I work with both individuals as well as teams. One of the things that I love about athletics is that there is so much they have to deal with in their sport that directly relates to life. As you help athletes become successful in their sport, they are automatically gaining the tools that will help them to succeed in life as well.
The most talented athlete can fail because they don’t have a powerful mindset. At the same time, an athlete who has far less talent can excel because of their mindset. Whether it’s in a team environment or a one-on-one basis, I love helping athletes discover their true potential and develop powerful, growth mindsets.
Tell us a little bit about your background and how/why you started your company?
My background is quite diverse, and I have experience in many areas.
I graduated college with a major in entrepreneurship. I was offered a great job in the banking industry, but I turned it down because my true love and focus at the time was rodeo. I was a professional rodeo cowboy steer wrestler and that’s what I wanted to spend my time doing.
However, about six months later I reconsidered the bank’s offer and luckily the opportunity was still there for me. I loved the banking industry and climbed the ladder quickly. I was soon a bank manager running my own branch and had the opportunity to meet and spend time with a lot of entrepreneurs.
One day while I was sitting in the office of a client, I looked through an artificial stone catalog he had on his desk. Something there sparked some excitement and I ended up leaving the bank to start a stone manufacturing company, Kodiak Mountain Stone. This was in 2005 and today I’m still the CEO of that company.
Running that company for the past 15 years has taught me a lot. I’ve done a lot of things right and I’ve done a lot of things wrong. I have always enjoyed my opportunities to coach and mentor other entrepreneurs throughout the years. I have always felt that my entrepreneurial experience is a very valuable tool to allow me to help other entrepreneurs.
Along with my experience and some additional training, I have been coaching for the past couple of years and have loved the opportunity.
What would you say are the top 3 skills needed to be a successful entrepreneur, and why?
A) Implement ‘Who, Not How’
I recently wrote an article on this topic based on Benjamin Hardy and Dan Sullivan’s book by the same name. Through my own experience plus that from working with clients, I believe entrepreneurs will find success faster when they spend less time doing things themselves and finding the right people to help them.
It’s a hard thing for entrepreneurs to do because they feel they can do it better, quicker, etc. But when they are more willing to delegate and look for the ‘who,’ they will find success quicker.
B) Network Well
People do business with those they know, like, and trust. You have to understand all three of these areas and work on them. Networking well helps you to work on all three of these areas. If nobody knows you or about you, how are they going to do business with you. Networking well helps you to open more doors and expose yourself to more opportunities. It also helps you in the previous point in finding “Who, Not How.”
C) Understand That Failure Is an Option
There is nothing fun about failure. You hear from everyone that “failure is part of success” and things like that. But that doesn’t mean that it’s something you’ll enjoy. Failure of any size is hard and it sucks. But taking the stance that “failure is not an option,” can end up just costing you more money and delaying the inevitable. When you do everything you can to succeed, but understand that failure is an option, it will allow you to face and deal with hard truths.
When you drag something out too long, trying to bring it back, you may end up losing a lot more in the long run. On the other hand, you may be able to restart in a new direction and make a significant amount of money in that same time period.
What were the top 3 mistakes you made starting your business and what did you learn from it?
A) I didn’t begin delegating soon enough. As entrepreneurs, we often start out doing everything ourselves. I was in this position and was doing a pretty good job juggling everything. When I got to the pain point of having to delegate, it was a struggle. In my mind, nobody would do as good of a job as I was doing. When I finally made the move, I was proven correct. They didn’t do a good of a job as I was, they did it much better. Meaning, the things that I wasn’t excited about doing, to begin with, were getting done better now, plus I had more time to focus on the things was doing well.
B) Hired the best option available. In hiring for a position, I didn’t have anyone apply that was the perfect fit. None of the applicants were ideal, but I ended up picking the best of what was given to me, even though I knew they were not a great fit. I should not have done that. I should have dealt with the pain of not having an employee rather than hiring an employee that wasn’t the right fit. Obviously, this person didn’t end up staying with me long because they were not a good fit.
C) Maximize the leverage of your network. Now as I create my courses I have come to realize the power in using affiliates. When you can work with your network and they can benefit by sharing your content, product, etc with their network you can get a much further reach a lot faster than you can do it on your own. Treat your partners in your network well and you can both receive some amazing rewards from it.
What are the top 3 online tools and resources you’re currently using to grow your company?
A) Social media is an incredible tool. Most of my success is from Instagram. It’s amazing how small the world becomes online. Through social media, I have been able to meet and work with people from all over the entire world.
B) Zoom – Zoom has been a great tool for me as an entrepreneur and especially as a coach. Whether I’m meeting with my staff, clients, prospects, or someone that I’ve offered a free strategy session to, it’s easy to connect. Having a video conference adds a personal component that you can’t get from a phone call.
C) ClickFunnels – ClickFunnels has been a great way for me to build my sales funnels and my membership sites for my courses.
What are three books or courses you recommend for entrepreneurs?
I have many different books I suggest to my clients depending on what they are working on or dealing with. But in general, there are some that I always suggest:
If you only had $100 dollars to start a new business, knowing everything you know now, how would you spend it?
I would stretch this money out as far as I could. I would immediately begin networking through social media and anywhere else that I could meet people. I would spend my time answering questions and adding value as much as I could without pushing my own agenda at all. While adding value without the expectation of anything in return, I would begin to get noticed. My influence and following would be growing. Through this process, I would look for a common niche that I could become recognized as an expert in. Once this was established, I would begin to develop a course on the topic while I continued to engage and add value online.
Once I was ready with the course I would continue to add as much value as possible by contributing and answering questions. But I would also begin to offer free strategy sessions on the topic. Many of the people who would take me up on the free strategy session would only want the freebie and nothing
more, which is fine. But through these strategy sessions I would offer my coaching programs and my new online course. I could go through this entire process without spending a lot of money. If I had any left at this point, I would use it for social media ads to spread my reach quicker.

Jeff Heggie: (00:00) Welcome, Jeff Heggie Daily Success Strategies. Thanks for being with me today. What I want to talk about is some strategies that you need to know and understand to finish 2020 strong and to make 2021 an incredible year. And then there’s something else I want to share with you right at the end. That’s just something I’ve got developed today that I’m excited about that I can’t wait to share, but first of all, it is Friday. So I want you to reflect back on what you committed to on Monday. What did you say that you needed to accomplish so that on Friday you could look back and say it’s been a successful week and you’re closer to your bigger goals? So send me a DM, email me at Jeff@JeffHeggie.com Or wherever you’re listening to this, just leave me a message and tell me how your week’s been.
Jeff Heggie: (00:40) And if you crushed it, if you’re closer to your bigger goals. So earlier this week, I was on a podcast with my good friend, Melissa, the SAVVY Business Podcast, and we had a great conversation, but one of the things we got talking about, we got talking about my High Achievers Mindset Secrets course, and we got talking about the whole idea of mindset. And we started talking basketball. Melissa is part of my Inner Circle Mastermind. So we’ve talked a lot and she knows I am a basketball coach and we’ve talked different scenarios. And we got talking about how similar athletics are to business and other aspects in life and why athletics are such a good analogy for life events. And one of the things we talked about, I want to share because it is such a good analogy for what we’re doing and what we’re trying to achieve.
Jeff Heggie: (01:28) And especially when it comes to mindset, it’s such an important thing. So as a basketball coach, my philosophy is I like to fast break. I like to run teams. I like a fast paced game, and I just think it’s more exciting and a lot more fun to do. So to have a team that can do that, you’ve got to be in shape. But there’s a lot of things when it comes to being in shape, that I think are powerful tools. And I want you to look at this, not just as basketball. I want you to look at this, how this impacts anything you do in life. Because like I said to Melissa, part of being a high school basketball coach is one, you’re coaching a basketball team. You’re teaching them basketball concepts, basketball skills, those sorts of things. You’re also teaching these kids how to be good people, how to be good adults.
Jeff Heggie: (02:20) I have a lot of things in my life that I have adopted and become part of me because of my high school coaches. And so that’s part of what we do. But the thing about the type of basketball I coach is you’ve got to be in very good shape. And so we condition a lot. We do a lot of running. We do a lot of all the things that are going to make sure that you’re in good shape. But one of the things that I tell my teams a lot is yes, it’s important to be in shape because you’ve got to be able to run up and down the floor and still play at your best. But that’s not the most important part about it. Because one of the things I also do is when we’re doing our conditioning, when we’re in between exercises and they have a chance to catch their breath, they’re not allowed to bend over, put their hands on their knees and show that they’re tired because just as important it is to be in shape, it’s important to be mentally strong.
Jeff Heggie: (03:20) And that’s what a lot of this conditioning does. It makes you mentally tough. And when you can present yourself and show that you’re strong, regardless of how tired you are, that’s a huge asset. And what I tell my teams all the time is when we’re in the fourth quarter and the game has been close and it’s been a tough game and the other team is exhausted, whether you’re exhausted or not. When they look at you and you don’t show it, you show that you’re strong, that you’re ready to go. That you’re not tired. You just won the mental game. So part of my conditioning philosophy is as much as getting in shape, it’s being mentally strong. And so what are you doing in your life and your business to develop that mindset, to prepare yourself so that when things are tough, when things are on the line, you’re mentally strong and you can win that game because you’re mentally strong.
Jeff Heggie: (04:18) These are some of the things we talk about in High Achievers Mindset Secrets. So if these are strategies that are applicable to you, I’d love you to contact me and we could get on a free 45 minute strategy session and talked about how these things could be applicable to you. And you can go to mindset.JeffHeggie.com To learn more about that program. The thing I want to share with you today, you know, those of you that have been following me for a long time, I’ve talked a lot about my Momentum Series. It’s a program that I put together right at the beginning of COVID because I knew there was going to be a lot of things just messed up in 2020. I didn’t expect it to be this long, but I knew things were going to be messed up. And one of the things I talk about in that program, and you can get it at www.JeffHeggie.com.
Jeff Heggie: (05:07) It’s a free program on my site. But one of the things I talked about in that is being prepared for when this is all over. Because just like when we went to the store when there were lineups and you’d get in the store and the shelves were empty. When everything opens back up, when everything gets going again, it’s those businesses, those entrepreneurs, those high achievers that are prepared that are going to be at the front of the line. And if you’re not preparing, if you’re just waiting, sitting around for things to happen and things to be handed to you, when you get to the front of the line, the shelves are going to be empty. So no more waiting around. I want to show you that 2021 is going to be your BOOM YEAR! And that’s for those that are prepared and ready to take advantage of it.
Jeff Heggie: (05:53) So do you want to know how, what we’re going to do? You’ve heard me talking a lot about my High Achievers Mindset Secrets course. There’s three levels in that course, the Academy is the elite program. It’s the program plus the one-on-one coaching. Well, Achievers, high achievers that want to take advantage of this. I’m going to take that to new level. The cool part about it is I am not going to charge any extra for it. I’m going to do it for the same cost as the Academy program, but at my discretion, I’m going to pick the first five Achievers that want to be a part of this, and no matter where you are right now, if you’re out of a job, if you lost your job, if you lost your business, if you’re uncertain about your future, or if your business is killing it, if everything’s going great and you’re killing it, this is a program that’s going to help you take it to another level.
Jeff Heggie: (06:43) And with these five people, we’re really gonna push it. We’re going to accelerate things, and I’m really going to show you how to finish 2020 strong. And we’re going to make 2021 your Boom Year, and it’s going to be absolutely incredible. So if this is something that you’re interested in, it will be the best program you can get out of this right now, because like I said, the Academy was the top level and I’m going to over-deliver on what that is. So send me a DM or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put the subject line “2021 Boom!” And we’ll get at it and I’ll get in touch with you. We’ll get on a call, talk about it. I’ll explain what we’re going to include in it and be ready to work. Be ready to rock and roll because it’s going to be awesome, but the results are going to be outstanding. So hopefully I can talk to you as soon and go check out Mindset.JeffHeggie.com And have an awesome day and an awesome weekend. Talk to you soon.
