Today, we talk about Coach Jimmy’s “favorite mistake” of letting external reasons become excuses. He says we need to “make stages” instead of waiting to be invited onto someone else’s stage. We talk about mistakes that people make in story telling. And we discuss this blog post, “Stop blaming others and start taking action.” He says you need to “first let it hurt, then take action.” He adds, “Failure will always be part of our life, but that’s where we get our lessons from” and that’s basically the theme of this entire podcast series.
