Relentless – Tim S. Grover

This is definitely one of my favourite books. Get into the mind of the trainer behind the top NBA players. Grover gives 13 traits of what separates the best from the rest. A few of my favourite ones are:

  • You keep pushing yourself harder when everyone else has had enough.

  • You get into the Zone, you shut out everything else, and control the uncontrollable.

  • You don’t celebrate your achievements because you always want more.

A few of the points I’ve taken away are:

 

1. Stay hungry. Being relentless means demanding more of yourself than anyone else could ever demand of you, knowing that every time you stop, you can still do more. You must do more. The minute your mind thinks, ‘Done,’ your instincts say, ‘Next.’.

 

2. Mental toughness is just as important as physical toughness. Mind over matter. You will never have a more powerful training tool than this: get your mind strong, so your body can follow.

3. Just like the self made billionaire Charlie Munger said “step by step you get ahead, but not necessarily in fast spurts.People are always asking me about the secrets and tricks I use to get results. Sorry if this disappoints you: There are no secrets.

 

4. As Warren Buffett said, “The more you learn, the more you earn.” “The greats never stop learning. Instinct and talent without technique just makes you reckless, like a teenager driving a powerful, high-performance vehicle. Instinct is raw clay that can be shaped into a masterpiece, if you develop skills that match your talent.

 

5.Successful people compensate for what they don’t have; unsuccessful people make excuses, blame everyone else, and never get past the deficiencies. A true leader can see past those deficiencies, identify the abilities, and get the most out of that individual.

    90% of my philosophy has been shaped by sports; mental training. Sports, after all, when broken down in it’s simplest form is mental toughness. Being able to keep going when your gas tank is on Empty.

    Relentless by Tim Grover is one of my favorite books of all time. He talks about what’s needed to be legendary in whatever you do.
