Welcome back high achievers, to your favorite rendezvous for growth and grit the 2% solution podcast. I'm Diamond while you're companion on this journey of transformation. Today we're dissecting relentless by Tim Grover the Bible for those who refuse to settle for anything less than legendary. Grover isn't just a coach. He's the maestro behind some of the most iconic careers in sports. So lace up as we explore the essence of what it means to be truly unstoppable, inspired by the luminaries Grover himself has mentored. Before we dive into the goldmine of takeaways from his book Relentless, let's spotlight Tim Grover. Picture this You're the secret weapon behind Michael Jordan's invincibility, kobe Bryant's fierce tenacity and Dwayne Wade's dynamic leadership. That's Grover for you. He's not just transforming bodies. He's sculpting mindsets that redefine the meaning of greatness. His legacy is not just in the victories, but in the relentless pursuit of excellent his clients and body. Full disclosure, relentless and winny.

Dai Manuel:

Both of Grover's books I consumed in one weekend. They were that amazing and I have a sneaking feeling knowing a lot of you out there when I get the feedback. I hear about what you're working on and I hear about the mindset you're embracing around change and bettering your own lives. I think these are books that you're going to love. So I'm going to share with you today some of my biggest takeaways from before we dive in. How to make mention that in relentless, grover introduces us to three archetypes Coolers, closers, cleaners. These are just categories, the reflections of how far you're willing to go for greatness. Coolers are solid performers, reliable and consistent. They're the dependable sedan that gets you from point A to point B. Closers excel under pressure, stepping up when the stakes are high, like a sports car in the fast lane. And then cleaners they're in a league of their own. Cleaners are the spacecrafts, not just breaking the limits but setting new ones. They don't just aim to win, they aim to dominate, dominate repeatedly. So now let's unravel the fabric of relentless and how Grover's wisdom, mirrored in the triumphs of his clients, can guide us to our own versions of unparalleled success.

Dai Manuel:

Takeaway number one the obsession with excellence. Grover reveals that true greatness demands an obsession with perfection. Michael Jordan didn't just. He lived basketball. His obsession led him to six NBA championships, showcasing that greatness requires more than just love for what you do. It demands an insatiable hunger to be the best. This kind of obsession isn't about losing yourself. It's about finding the ultimate version of yourself through relentless dedication. Takeaway number two the myth of the offseason. In the world of a cleaner, there is no offseason. Kobe Bryant's 4 AM workouts are legendary, a testament to his belief that while talent is natural, greatness is a choice. This takeaway isn't about disregarding rest. It's about the constant mindset of improvement, even in the downtime. Kobe's five NBA championships weren't just one during the season. They were secured in the countless unseen hours of relentless preparation.

Dai Manuel:

Takeaway number three embracing your dark side. Grover encourages leveraging your inner fears and drives as a source of strength. Dwayne wades journey from a challenging childhood to NBA glory exemplifies this. His ability to channel personal adversity and to fuel for his ambitions led to three NBA championships. This principle teaches us to harness our inner struggles, not as anchors but as the engines driving us toward our destiny.

Dai Manuel:

Takeaway number four fearlessness versus recklessness. Being fearless, according to Grover, means acknowledging risks but diving in because you're prepared to face anything. It's a calculated approach, embodied by Michael Jordan's game-winning shots. His career was defined by moments where he embraced the possibility of failure. He rose above it through meticulous preparation and an unshakable belief in his skills. Takeaway five closing with authority. Cleaners don't just finish. They close with such dominance that their success becomes inevitable. This approach has seen in Kobe Bryant's career, where he didn't just aim to win games, he aimed to leave an indelible mark on them, ensuring his performance was the standard all others were measured against. It's about asserting your presence so powerfully that your victory becomes a foregone conclusion Through relentless.

Dai Manuel:
