If you have spent 700 minutes with us, uh, why don’t you let us know at our front desk and we’ll, we’ll have, we’ll give you something special. Cause that’s an achievement. That is an achievement doing 700 minutes together and I it, yeah. Oh yeah. Oh yeah.

Um, but we are going over what are we going to be over in our 70th podcasts?

How to achieve greatness, how to be great.

The winning formula and our been coaching for a long time now, worked with, gotten, been blessed enough to work with a lot of athletes and uh, the, the greatest south it’s I’ve worked with who pick up skills or working advanced skills now or have graduated on. Um, they all have three things in common and that’s what we’re going to go.

And so, so we want you to be a triple threat when, whenever you, uh, if you want to achieve greatness and whether it’s really, whether it’s tumbling or anything else that you do, these are the, we’re going to go over the three things that you have to have. This is what the three, the three things that great athletes all have in common.

Our justice, tumbling company opinion. This is what we think all out, all great athletes I’ve worked with, I’ve had as a fearlessness, a coachability, being able to be coached and, uh, drive a positive attitude, drive.

[inaudible] uh, you, you can’t, you can’t buy that stuff. No. No, no matter how many privates you have, it will not give you those. Yeah, it will, it will not give you coachability. It will not make you fearless and it will not give you that, that drive, that, that positive attitude. That’s something that you have to bring to the table to achieve the greatness. Um, and whether that’s like, like I said, whether that’s tumbling or that’s your college career, um, onto like your actual career in life. You have to be fearless because you’re going to have to make, I mean we stepped out under an umbrella of a, like a really big name company that is known throughout the world for great all star athletes, great all star teams, um, and created our own little gym. Just that, that’s takes that, that was scary. Right? Absolutely.

Um, you know, in tumbling, having to throw the, the skill by yourself, it’s scary. That’s a, that’s a part of it. Um, being driven, having that drive to, to no matter what it takes, I’ll do whatever it takes to get there. I don’t care what drills you make me do. I don’t care what you make me go, you tell me to go back and work on. If it’s your round off, if you’re working on a full, we might tell you, you gotta, you gotta change some things in your round off. Don’t take that as an insult. Okay. Take that as a, as caring about you, you and your career and, and the quality of your tumbling. And then last but certainly not least is that drive that, that drive to have a positive attitude no matter what kind of tumbling day it is, no matter how you feel, no matter what kind of outside things are going on when you step in here, you have a drive to work on yourself and be the best that you can be.

Absolutely. And all three of those things are, are hard to come by all three in one athlete. But when it does, those kids learn fast. The, it’s fun to work with. It’s stress free. They just, it’s natural, it’s natural. Um, we try to train those three things, Taz, many kids as we can. Um, we want those in that our athletes, um, we know tumbling is scary. Um, having a fearlessness, nerves are good at, I’ll keep you on your toes, but having this, letting fear dominate you to where you won’t even try to, where you can’t better yourself. Um, that’s not what we’re looking for

there. You know, there was a 69 year old double amputee, that means he has no legs. Um, he just climbed about about eight months ago. Just climbed Mount Everest. Okay. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Now, um, if I was to climb Mount Everest, there would be some fear there. But

if I were to climb Mount Everest, I’d be dead.

Would it make it back? I mean, listen to, to overcome. But there’s, there’s people who would look at what we do every day and be like, well, if I tried that, I would die. I’d be dead. Tulsa tumbling lessons, and so there’s an f fear aspect in everything, but if you aren’t willing to overcome that now you might say, oh, Colton tumbling isn’t anything complex compared to like Mt. Everest. But it is to somehow put some people, it is, some people just don’t belong going upside down or in the air at all. Or climbing Mount Everest that, you know, um, you have to be able to overcome that fear. You have to be a n n to do that. It takes a drive and it takes the coachability as in he probably didn’t do that himself. He probably had someone there. I’m teaching him training how to do it.

Yeah. People who run marathons, they train year round. It’s not an easy thing to do, but they do have that drive and they have that coachability and they’re fearless. So those, those are what we call the winning formula. And good, good news is, is that you don’t have to be born with that. You can find that you can, um, you can wake up every morning knowing that those are the three things that you’re going to make a change with. You know, I know it’s already at the end of February, but people still have new year’s resolutions going on. Make that yours. Like you’re going to wake up every morning with a drive and you’re going to wake up every morning with coachability. That means, you know what, if there’s an adult in your life who is giving you, I’m giving you mentorship, listen to them because they, they probably know what they’re talking about.

I know teenagers are all about, I’m, I don’t need to listen to your elders, respect them because they’ve been places that you haven’t been yet. Take that advice. Um, and then fearlessness. I mean, fearlessness is something that I feel is rare, especially nowadays because we’re in a, we’re in a society, a world where, Tulsa tumbling lessons, fear kind of dictates, dictates everything. Tulsa tumbling lessons, uh, politics. They, they, people run politics on fear and getting people to be afraid. Um, and it’s, it’s the same, same thing with your everyday life. You can be afraid, but then if you don’t step out and take what you want and get, get those achievements, you’re kind of stuck. You’re just kind of spinning your wheels. Yeah. Fearlessness. The dude, everybody always asks the Dee Dee on all my shirts and my arm without to, do you know what that means? I do. What is it?

It is dusty, your brother and Dax in your son? No, no, I could say that. No clothes, no, it’s daredevil and it’s a superhero. And in the comic books he’s known as the man without fear. Right. The only reason I got it, I ever gotten nervous and tumbling. I would look at that. I would just kind of force myself to do it right. We had an athlete and I, and we brought this up, um, for one of our clinics in Missouri. We had an athlete who had taken a pretty hard fall the, uh, the couple months before, um, and she came back to our clinic and she was determined to throw that scale that she fell before, took her to the hospital actually. Um, and she kept telling herself, just do it. Just do it. Just do it. Just do it. I would, I could see her whispering to herself and I was like, what are you saying?

And, but even in her round off, like while she was running, just do it. Just do it. Just do it. Just do it like the Nike, you know. But that if that’s what it takes, do it. Do it. Yeah. Don’t let fear hold you back. Because if you let fear hold you back, then, Tulsa tumbling lessons, it’s, it’s gonna be hard to greatness in all aspects of your life. Determination and coachability. Have him take mentorship, take criticism, um, and use it for a positive aspect. Don’t, don’t beat yourself up. Just wake up with an active drive to work on all three of those things. Just make a change to do it. Just do it. So for this 70th podcast, um, you know, it’s taken determination. We’ve been determined every day for 70 days, cause we started, started these podcasts on day one, and then every day we’ve made a, a podcast, um, for each day in s for these past 70 days.

And, and, uh, you know, there’s not a big fear aspect that we did wake up at like four o’clock some days to get here and have to be out in the like creepy darkness. So that was the fear aspect I guess. Um, and then, uh, coachability, we’re doing this because somebody recommended it. Somebody who we trust, Tulsa tumbling lessons, is telling us how to run our business and helping us run our business and helping us make decisions. And this is the, one of the things that he kind of mentored us in to tell us how to do it and why it’s a good idea. So that’s why we wanted to put this in our 70th uh, podcast.
