Sure, some people are lucky because they have an uncle in the sports business.
But most of us, like you and me, have to create our own luck if we want to work in sports.
And the best way to create your own luck is to go into “Beast Mode.”
Beast Mode is a mindset. It’s a superhuman state of being in which animal instinct takes over mind and body. You’ve been there before. We all have. Any significant accomplishment — one that seems nearly impossible to reach — you’ve had to dig deep inside and get to a level you didn’t even know existed.
Preparation & Execution
If you’re an athlete, you’ve probably trained in Beast Mode. If you’re a college graduate, you’ve probably studied in Beast Mode. Remember when you were preparing for the S.A.T.? Practice tests. Flash cards. Tutoring. Working like a maniac. You were in Beast Mode.
Focus & Finish
In life you’re going to reach certain plateaus. Getting accepted into college. Graduating. Landing your first job. Getting a promotion. Becoming a Director. Etc. In order to reach each level, you’ve got to lock in with intense, Beast Mode-like focus with the objective to finish the mission.
Beast Mode is key to breaking into sports. It’s a monumental leap to go from the college campus to the front office, or from another industry into the sports industry. Don’t take it lightly. Take it seriously, because it’s going to take a superhuman effort. But you can do it. You know you can. Just do it.
