In this episode, I had an opportunity to talk with former professional athlete Robert Day on his journey in becoming a professional basketball player. In just our short time together, I learned quite a few success principles that helped him reach the pinnacle of athletics- being paid as a professional. Here are a few of my takeaways:

  1. Take Initiative: Robert immediately took action on working on his game after watching a Christmas Day game between Reggie Miller and Michael Jordan.
  2. Don’t Give Up: After not making the team at a young age, he continued to improve in the areas where the coach told him he needed to improve if he wanted to make the team next year.
  3. Be A Team Player: Robert’s reputation of being a good teammate paid off when a former competitor reached out to help him find career opportunities overseas.

I hope you enjoy this episode, don’t hesitate to reach out to Robert if there is anything he can do to help you professionally with athletics or with any questions you may have about getting a mortgage for a home or investment property!
