Episode 81: Gimme My Darn Theme Music!
Welcome to The Big Dog Podcast with Josh Wilson and co-host Logan. In this episode, we dive into the winning mentality and the incredible transformation happening at Colorado with Coach Prime, also known as Deion Sanders.Coach Prime, a legendary athlete in football, baseball, and sportscasting, has a knack for winning. He's brought Jackson State from obscurity to a national program and is now leading the Colorado Buffaloes to potential success. His ability to turn around a losing culture is remarkable.What's fascinating is how Coach Prime instills this winning mindset in his team. He doesn't just turn around a program; he rebuilds it from the ground up. He knows the personality, grit, and work ethic it takes to win, and he expects nothing less from his players.However, Coach Prime's approach isn't without its critics. Some see his confidence and style as arrogance, but he doesn't care. He's not here to win at your worst; he wants to beat you at your best. He brings a unique and effective approach to coaching, focusing on the long-term development of his players, not just winning games.Winners like Coach Prime know that success is a way of life. They don't make excuses; they adapt and keep pushing forward, no matter the obstacles. And that's the key to their continuous success.In the end, the message is clear: Winners win, and it's not about comparing yourself to others. It's about finding your own path, doing things your way, and becoming the best version of yourself. So, are you a winner or a loser? The choice is yours.03:10 Winners Don't Crumble to Challenges05:29 Embracing Confidence and Doing Things Differently07:03 The Importance of Doing Things Your Way11:12 Beating the Best, Not Settling for the Worst16:31 Winners vs. Losers: The Mindsetwww.teamjw.comIG: that_dog_trainerFB: www.facebook.com/jshwlsn      www.facebook.com/olk9hr
