Hey everybody it’s coach Brader…It’s Monday morning and I’m fired up. Desire is different from ambition….everyone has the desire but do you have ambition. Ambition is the engine that gets you moving. What I’m about to say next is a little tricky….We can’t mistake movement for progress…just because you’re doing a lot doesn’t mean you’re getting a lot done. Have ambition and do what’s necessary to reach your goal….no more, no less….go hard with what counts. Let’s go…..

Get Better

Hey everybody, it is Monday, and it is time to attack the week. Every day I meet with athletes, and the most common question is what do I need to do to reach my goals.  My answer is always the same. Don’t focus on being good; focus on getting better. People often think attributes are fixed. Things like IQ, personality, and physical characteristics are fixed, and regardless of what they do, they won’t improve. This is a losing mindset. Focus on growth and steady progress. Focus on tiny improvements instead of being the best. Before you know it, you will have experienced tremendous growth. There is a Japanese term called Kaizen. It stands for steady daily progress. Inch by inch eventually adds up to miles. Take the first step today and start the week off right, and when you do, you’ll be glad you did! Let’s goooooo!!! 

Why Not Me

All of us have had our share of ups and downs. If we didn’t, life wouldn’t be an adventure. I’ve developed this website to motivate, encourage, and inspire you to move closer to your goals. Regardless of what stage of life you are in, there is always room for improvement.

In my book, WHY NOT ME, I highlight some of my lowest points in my life as well share some of my greatest accomplishments. I give strategies that enabled me to overcome adversity and pursue my goals. Alcoholism almost killed me but it also is the reason I am who I am. For years I was ashamed of the man I became and didn’t see a light at the end of the tunnel. However, because of my determination and will power, along with the support of my family, I was able to turn my life around. If you are reading this, I know that you want to take the first step to achieving your goals. Deciding is the first step to achievement. Once you decide to take that first step, all you need to do is continue moving forward. I look forward to sharing my story and strategies with you. I know that everything you need for success is inside you. Now it’s time to bring it out and help you become the person you were put on earth to be.
