Years ago, I asked legendary golf teacher Butch Harmon what separates the best from the rest. I’ll never forget his answer: “The best recover from adversity faster than everyone else.” On my latest solo podcast, I'm diving into how we can build resilience not just to bounce back from challenges, but to grow through them. Think of resilience like a muscle—we have to work it to make it stronger. Resilience is the pathway to personal growth and transformation. By reframing setbacks and adversity as opportunities for development, we can emerge stronger and more capable than before. Ultimately, building resilience isn't just about returning to where we were; it's about becoming a better version of ourselves through each challenge we face. Here are five ways to develop resilience:

  1. Cultivate a “next play” mentality.
  2. Expect to be tested.
  3. Embrace failure as feedback.
  4. Remember setbacks are temporary.
  5. Recognize pressure is privilege.

Managing your energy isn't just about productivity—it's about reclaiming control over what truly matters. In my two decades as a sports agent, I witnessed firsthand how top performers fiercely protected and optimized their energy for peak performance. Transitioning into the more traditional business world, I was struck by most people’s complete lack of intention when it comes to energy management. The good news? It’s something we can control. In my latest solo episode, I share a straightforward strategy to regain control, reset and refocus, and prioritize effectively. It will empower you to take control of your energy before the world decides for you.

What if everything we’ve been told about happiness is wrong? So wrong that it’s making us miserable? On this episode, I chat with Stephanie Harrison, an expert in the science of happiness and the creator of the New Happy philosophy. Stephanie's journey began when she realized that having everything she ever wanted still left her feeling deeply unhappy. Over the next ten years, she set out to discover what truly makes people happy, and her findings might surprise you. Stephanie has compiled her insights into her debut book, New Happy. We discuss the three lies that society tells us about happiness: that we need to be perfect, constantly achieve more, and do everything alone. We'll also explore a counterintuitive truth: to be truly happy, we need to help others find happiness.

How do we navigate change that’s unexpected? This is a question that I’ve found a lot of people are struggling with today. Change is inevitable, whether it's in our personal lives, careers, or society at large. It's like that surprise guest who shows up uninvited when you least expect it… and is here to stay. While we can't always control change, we do have some say in how we respond to it. That doesn’t make it easy though!  

Here are three questions to help you get back on track when life throws you a curveball: 

  • What can I control in this situation?
  • How can I shift my mindset?
  • Is there a silver lining or hidden potential within this change?

By asking ourselves these questions, we can begin to navigate the unexpected with a bit more grace and resilience.

Have you ever noticed how achievement and fulfillment can get mixed up? On my first solo episode of the podcast, I talk about how I learned this lesson the hard way (Enneagram Type 3 over here!). While you can have both, it’s important not to confuse them. Achievement centers on tangible outcomes, but it’s often temporary and can get addicting. Fulfillment is something deeper. It’s about finding purpose and living by your values. It lasts longer and feels more real. Without it, success can feel empty. 

Here are three questions I use to check in with myself, when I feel the lines start to blur:

  1. What am I chasing?
  2. Why?
  3. Do I like who I am becoming in that pursuit?
