In this interview, I talk with my cousin, McLeod Bethel-Thompson, about his dream to become a professional Football player.  He has played in the AFL, NFL, and CFL.  He really shows what it takes to follow a dream.  We talked about how to stay motivated, becoming the person you want to be, and growth mindset.  

An “almost” complete list of what we talked about:

  • How he stuck with football, even through tough times
  • How to turn your journey from selfish to selfless
  • How to chisel away the granite to sculpt the person you want to be
  • Getting into a growth mindset
  • How to find joy in the process and training, and not getting hung up on the end result
  • Don’t compare yourself to other people (focus on your own journey)
  • How to not get distracted
  • Surround yourself with powerful people who believe in your dream
  • Finding your why
  • More isn’t always better, pace yourself so your don’t burn out
  • Doing the right kind of work and not just working to work
  • Don’t define yourself on outside people’s expectations or approval
  • How to get yourself into your peak performance state
