My Five Favorite Articles
Hey there, it's Coach Jordan! Today, I'm excited to share with you my five all-time favorite articles that have made a significant impact on my life and coaching career. These articles have been instrumental in shaping my coaching philosophy and have provided invaluable lessons that I constantly refer to when guiding others or even myself. After reading countless articles over the years (I've lost count!), I've done the heavy lifting for you and narrowed down the top five articles that have truly stood the test of time. Each one of these have taught me essential lessons that span various aspects of life - from personal growth to business success. So, without further ado, let's dive into the list!
#1. 1000 True Fans by Kevin Kelly
Lesson: To be a successful creator you don’t need millions. You don’t need millions of dollars or millions of customers, millions of clients or millions of fans. To make a living as a craftsperson, photographer, musician, designer, author, animator, app maker, entrepreneur, or inventor you need only thousands of true fans.
#2. What Oprah Knows for Sure About Getting Unstuck
Lesson: Nothing happens until you decide...
#3. Making of a Corporate Athlete
Lesson: The problem with most approaches, we believe, is that they deal with people only from the neck up, connecting high performance primarily with cognitive capacity. In recent years there has been a growing focus on the relationship between emotional intelligence and high performance.
#4. 40 Years of Training the Biggest Names in Business and Sports Taught Me This
Lesson: What does that ideal state look like? How do you get there? How do you sustain it? But over the years, over countless encounters with some of the most talented people in the world, and over countless clinical studies on achieving and sustaining high performance, character proved itself to be the nucleus of it all.
#5. Want To Know What Your Brain Does When It Hears A Question?
Lesson: Questions hijack the brain. The moment you hear one, you literally can’t think of anything else. And that can be a powerful tool.
Thank you for taking the time to explore my top five all-time favorite articles! I encourage you to read each one and discover the profound insights they can bring into your life, health, wealth, family, and business. These articles have been the cornerstone of my coaching philosophy, and I'm confident they will inspire and empower you on your journey to personal growth and success.
