From Chumps to Champs

Some people inch their way towards success and the game changer life by waiting around for a good hand to be dealt to them. Real leaders however, don’t wait for the good hands to come around; they understand the importance of a poor hand, and know full well that a poor hand or situation can be turned around into a good one.In a bonus episode of my podcast that was just released today, I interviewed my friend and former Marquette and Indiana University Coach, Tom Crean, to discuss the steps he…See More

Three Temptations of Highly Successful People!

The gap between being successful and reaching your fullest potential is huge. You can be very successful and make substantial amounts of money, while at the same time still miss your potential by miles.The reason that so few people or performers ever become great – or the great become the best – is because they become good at what they do. As Jim Collins put it, “Good is the enemy of great.” When people become successful it’s common to see them: stay in their comfort zone, stop risking, stop…See More

Just Own It!

In every endeavor in life there will be adverse conditions – things that conspire against you – that are beyond your control. Something that separates the unstoppable game changer from the other three performance groups (undertakers, caretakers, and playmakers) however, is the simple act of taking ownership and accepting responsibility for their decisions. While the other three performance groups will look to assign blame (for their results, for their career, for their life) the game changer…See More

Get Your Life in Balance

Becoming a game changer isn’t just about being great at whatever it is that you do. An important aspect of living the game changer life is having and living a life that is in balance; and, while your life may never be in perfect balance for very long (as I’m of the opinion that no one’s ever is), it’s pursuing that balance that helps lead to the game changer life. There are countless examples of high achievers in sports and business who earn well, but don’t live well. And while everyone has a…See More

The Unstoppable Philosophy

Jim Rohn, an important mentor in my life, taught that if you want to change your life, you must change your philosophy. Everyone has a philosophy. It’s what influences the way we see things, the way we make decisions, the way we respond to the people around us, and more. The question isn’t whether or not we have a philosophy, but rather, “Where has my philosophy brought me today and where is it taking me in the future?” Anyone wanting to live more of their life in game changer status will have…See More

Refuse the Bait of Bitterness

Life gives us countless opportunities to become bitter: losing a game, missing a deal, being rejected, being disrespected, someone else getting the credit, a bad breakup, and the list continues. Some people carry their bitterness around with them and rehearse it often enough that you can likely finish their sentences for them.The thing about bitterness is that sometimes you have a right to be bitter, to be angry or disappointed. Especially if what happened was flat out wrong. That's not the…See More

Arguing with Success

In an episode of my podcast, The Game Changer Life, I talked about workplace “undertakers.” These team members fit into two primary categories:They do sub-baseline work. Someone else has to do their share, clean up their messes, or follow them around doing damage control. Toxic achievers. These team members may be a top performer, or even the top performer, but they cut corners, violate core values, demonstrate substandard integrity, abuse other people on the team, and the like.Oftentimes,…See More

Going A.P.E for Attitude, Passion, and Enthusiasm

Posted on July 18, 2017 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

In September of 2017, my fourteenth book, Unstoppable will be released. In the book, I discuss four types of performers: undertakers, caretakers, playmakers and game changers, and outline steps to elevate one’s personal and business life to game changer status. The eighth chapter is titled, “Go A.P.E.,” and it outlines the importance that attitude, passion, and enthusiasm have in excelling consistently well in any endeavor. In this column, I’m sharing a sneak preview from that…

The Caretaker Performer

Posted on July 18, 2017 at 11:37am 0 Comments

In past articles and episodes of my podcast I have discussed the four primary types of performers you’ll find in any organization, or on any team: undertakers, caretakers, playmakers, and game changers (For a quick review, listen to the first episode of my podcast – “The Undertaker Performer”).

In this week’s episode, I’m continuing this discussion by sharing some characteristics of the second type of performer: the caretaker. While caretakers are certainly a step up from the…

Hi Dave,

Thank you for your acceptance.

I was at the AutoCon luncheon when you spoke and being a man who rarely says no to good food, I stopped my meal took out my notebook and began taking notes. Upon my return and reading them, I thought maybe there was a video of the event or a presentation I could acquire. The speach was one that our dealer principal and others must here or see. If you can or cannot assist me thank you for a wonderful enlightening speach.

Hi Dave,

I had the pleasure of hearing you a few years ago in Seattle WA at a Chevrolet SeaFair kickoff brunch sponsored by the Puget Sound Chevrolet Dealers. I transcribed my notes of your meeting and shared them with ownership. I found your presentation to be information rich, comprehensive, practical and most important founded in core values and principles. Thank you for your contribution to my life as well as the auto industry.

Hope all is well in your world. Take care
