Dave Austin took years of learning and excelling in athletics and reflections on his success to helping others through his coaching. He discusses how, while on vacation, a life changing decision with his wife changed his whole attitude and outlook as he works with others. Dave continues a lifelong mission from athletics to coaching.
He uses animals as examples of behaviors that are important for success. Then he takes those same examples and they become triggers so that when someone is in a stressful situation if learned well, they come to mind for you to act well under pressure. Dave points out that we have 60,000 thoughts per day. These can be a huge number of distractions and he focuses on extreme focus.
Just before he made the decision to go on this journey, Dave and his wife lost everything as they were hit in a major real estate crash and leveraged out. It was his re-evaluation which makes an incredible story and fortunately for many a new career. He explains how much he learned from his different coaches and noted how athletes performed based on their coach.
Dave urges people not to do something you don’t like, change your direction. In that light, he mentions the famous quote, ‘you are the average of the five people closest to you.’ You need to make changes and find people that will have a positive influence on your future.
