No matter what you do, where you are, or what your profession may be, are you taking the time to put your armor on?
How many of us have risen out of someone's shadow in our lives or careers? A parent, boss, mentor, teacher, or coach... They prepared us to step out of their shadow and take the lead in our own life. Take a moment a think of who those people are in your life... Now, ask yourself "who is standing in MY shadow right now?"
There is no blue print on how to become the best at what you do. Honestly, in my mind, that's a good thing! If there was a set path, it would cheapen what it means to actually play at world class.

Always remaining hungry to redefine our best - whether that is by a single percentage point, or a hundredth or thousandth of a second. So while I won't pretend to have the answers, I want to provide a few reliable guide posts that can help all of us on our personal journey towards playing at our highest levels.
