Leadership is about performing in the moment. The best athletes are able to perform at their very best in the toughest moments.

But how do we create the confidence to perform to our full potential?

Confidence does not come from collecting accomplishments, recognition, or status. It's a mindset that we are USING our sport rather than BEING USED by our sport. The confidence to perform in the moment comes from the inside-out. It's something we discover when we write our own story so we can maximize our gifts and abilities.

We all have a desire deep within us to make an impact with our athletic performance. But we often look in the wrong place to fulfill that desire and we chase misguided goals.

The 1% Journal for Athletes takes us on a daily journey to create a better version of ourselves. Continuous improvement allows us to build the skills and character to perform to our full potential, both on and off the court or field. At the same time, getting a little bit better every day allows us to strengthen the relationships and connections with our coaches and teammates. Then, we can move beyond just influence and inspiration in our leadership to creating a positive impact.

Each of our lives is a story and...

Every story has a HERO.

Every hero goes on a JOURNEY.

Every journey is an opportunity to make an IMPACT.

Will we write a story which creates an impact?

As the hero of our story, we do not want to simply pass through the stages of our journey reacting to the circumstances of the world around us. We need fundamentals we can employ to help ensure we reach our full potential and we use our experience to make an impact on others.

Our impact comes from executing FUNDAMENTALS.

These 12 Fundamentals of Impact work in pairs through an INSIDE-OUT process.

Inside fundamentals help us employ MINDSETS of impact.

Outside fundamentals guide us to take ACTIONS which make a positive impact.

These 12 Fundamentals of IMPACT are:
  1. Have a Vision
  2. Pursue Our Dreams
  3. Seek Excellence
  4. Grow Character Skills
  5. Rise Above
  6. Overcome Obstacles
  7. Be a Lighthouse
  8. Lead by Serving
  9. Know Our Integrity
  10. Live by Principles
  11. Seek Peace and Fulfillment
  12. Enjoy the Journey

Each one of the 366 challenges in this journal aims to help us develop one of the fundamentals we need for our JOURNEY to reach our full potential.

Ultimately, the journey always provides the hero opportunities to create a better version of themselves so they can give their gifts and abilities away to others and make a difference in the world.

Your journey awaits...
