Brief Book Review for that Champion Mindset!
I finally finished this book, Relentless – From Good to Great to Unstoppable By Tim S. Grover and when I tell you it will tighten up your mindset, get your hands on this book and dedicate some time reading it.
Tim is a former trainer to many of the most intense athletes and champions, such as Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade, and he shares the tea leaves on what makes these athletes relentless and unstoppable until the end result is complete.
The word Relentless is used in sports to describe the most intense competitors and achievers imaginable, those who stop at nothing to get to the end result. In sports, being relentless is measurable by victories and trophies and championships and rings.
In real life, being relentless is a state of mind that can give you the strength to achieve, to survive, to overcome, to be strong when others are not. It means craving the end result so intensely that the work becomes irrelevant. Not just in sports, but in everything you do.
The ability to be relentless is in all of us.
Tim devised a three-tiered system that categorizes different types of competitors: Coolers, Closers and Cleaners. Good, Great and Unstoppable. You can apply these standards to any group of individuals; just look around your team, your office, your friends and family. If you want to be unstoppable (Cleaner), you’ve got to make the commitment.
A Simple Breakdown
A Cooler is careful; he waits to be told what to do, watches to see what everyone else is doing and then follows the leader. He’s the setup guy, keeping things cool until the Closer or Cleaner can take over.
A Closer can handle a lot of pressure; he’ll get the job done if you put him in the right situation and tell him exactly what you need him to do. He’ll study all sorts of scenarios so he can anticipate what might happen, but he’s uncomfortable when faced with something unexpected.
A Cleaner is rarely understood and he likes it that way. He is not intimidated by pressure, he thrives on it. He may not love the work but he’s addicted to the results. He keeps pushing himself harder when everyone else has had enough.
Here are a few examples:
Coolers worry about the competition and how they measure up.
Closers study the competition and plan their attack based on the opponent.
Cleaners make the competition study them; they don’t care whom they’re facing, they know they can handle anyone.
Coolers won’t offer to take on a role they’re not comfortable with.
Closers will take the role if you ask them and they’ll do it well, if they have enough time to prepare for and study the situation.
Cleaners don’t wait to be asked, they just do it.
Coolers think they want the spotlight, but when they get it, they usually handle it badly.
Closers stand in front because they need to show who’s in charge.
Cleaners don’t have to show who’s in charge… Everyone already knows!
Ok, I’ve written enough to get your attention and now hopefully you head over to Amazon and grab this book to kick off the new year.
Make it HAPPEN!!!
