AF159 - Lessons from a Football Coach

success stories Sep 14, 2020

I thought it was going to be the best year when 2020 started. Everything was going great: I had a vacation with my family in Puerto Rico, my Amazon business was booming, and we had a remodeling in the house. Then, the pandemic hit - hard and fast. Like many people, I was impacted by the quarantine, the uncertainty, and the struggles of COVID-19. But someone inspired me out of my recent rut. Someone who, despite life’s challenges and physical limitations, strove to reach his dreams. That someone is high school football coach Rob Mendez. 

In this episode, I share the story of coach Rob Mendez, how he aspired to become a football coach despite having the Tetra-amelia syndrome, and the four key lessons I learned from his life. I underscore the importance of refining your skills and capabilities to the best of your ability and illustrate how some of the words we use can limit us. I describe how Rob Mendez uses love as a tool to coach his team and why you need to commit to loving and honoring yourself. I also explain how having coaches and mentors can help you develop yourself and discuss how life’s challenges and hurdles can teach us to be better.

“The sign of a true champion is trusting your abilities and greatness without being complacent. Always seek to improve as a person and as a business owner.” - Kristin Ostrander

This week on the Amazon Files: 

    • The story of Rob Mendez and his determination to become a football coach
    • Why “can’t” is a bad word in our house and how our minds handicap us the most.

    • The value of having coaches, trainers, and mentors
    • The importance of running a team from the perspective of love
    • The impact of accountability and seeking support from other people
    • Waiting for happiness and why we shouldn’t hope for an instant solution to our problems
