In this podcast, I have a conversation with my friend David Nurse all about realizing your potential, achieving more than you thought was possible, and creating breakthroughs. This is something David knows about because he recently released a book called “Breakthrough,” which provides an actionable blueprint to increase your innovation and creativity on demand.

David took what he learned about the habits and routines of the most successful NBA players and coaches to develop a framework for creating more breakthroughs in your life.

In case you’re not familiar with David, not only is he a former pro basketball player life optimization coach, and a repeat guest on my podcast, but he’s a bestselling author, and acclaimed speaker, recently named by Real Leaders as a Top 50 keynote speaker (and he’s the youngest speaker int he list to boot).

In this interview, we discuss . . .

  • What breakthroughs are and the framework you can use to have them more frequently
  • The value of competition
  • Developing self-confidence
  • The fear of failure
  • How to break through limits and realize “potential”
  • The self-made, lone-genius myth
  • How to make personal connections and build a network
  • And more . . .

So, if you want to learn what “breakthroughs” are and how you can foster having more of them in your life, definitely check out this podcast!
