... All due to his Discipline: showing up and Doing The work -- every day
My boss heard Dre speak and was wowed by his perspective and enthusiasm for success. At the time of Dre's talk for our group, we were celebrating our company's top sellers. The challenge that faced us in that setting was motivation to press on and achieve even more success this year than the last. His words were impactful to the level that a worker in the venue where Dre was speaking to us actually came up to him later and thanked him, stating that Dre spoke on exactly what he needed to hear that night. Dre was very professional and even stood in for photos and autographs after his speaking time was finished.
Uttered the most inspiring words I’ve heard in many years, and I think that conversation was what I needed to get off my ass & do what I’ve thought of for years - but just haven’t done. Time for me to ignore the naysayers...
Been hearing compliments all day about your presentation. It really resonated with the audience. One of the attendees teaches dance part-time. She used some of your ideas at her class last night. It had to do with switching partners around. She actually saw an immediate improvement in one of her dancers. Thought you’d enjoy hearing this.
I want to thank you for the opportunity to open my awareness and thank you for the motivation. In 2018 I just built my tea company in China here in the tea gardens of Wuyi mountain. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you. I still remember your powerful speech. It has really motivated me. Here I am and I would like yo say thank you.
Thank you!!!!!! You were amazing!!!! The students were talking abut your talk ALL DAY TODAY!!!!
There’s no such thing as “fake it til you make it.” As soon as you make the decision to be something other than you’ve been up to this point, it becomes 100% real. -
hire one of the few speakers who
lived Everything he talks about
you (and your audience) have had their fill of the observers: people who Watched something from the sideline and wrote a book or gave a speech about what They Watched. Would your audience appreciate Finally hearing form the person who did it, instead of Settling for spectators and analysts who had to buy tickets?
some People are great at what they do -- but They Couldn't explain their expertise in an Informative and Educational way if their lives depended on it.
You've probably hired some of these mistakes.
others are great at explaining and breaking Down what happened -- but They've never done any of it Themselves.
But we don't need to analysts to explain the game anymore: the players can speak for themselves.
Rare is the Individual who both did the thing and can Explain it -- captivating an audience with their very presence, voice and content All at once.
Dre Baldwin is that rare breed. Watch That Video Above and see for Yourself.
Work On Your Game is a book that dives deep into mental conditioning with simple to understand terms and examples.
Dre draws heavily on his experiences as a collegiate & professional basketball player, but you don't have to be an athlete to understand the mental conditioning concepts that he clearly elucidates in this book.
After explaining each concept, Dre challenges the reader to examine their own game and to apply the concepts to their daily lives. This isn't a book that tells you what to do, but rather a book that prompts you to figure out what action to take in your own life.
This man, Dre Baldwin, puts out straight fire when it comes to content. I'm talking about "drop whatever you're doing" level of urgency.
I've read at least four other books from Dre and each one over delivers. Not only is this a must get, but I'd go as far to say it's a must gift. Give the gift that keeps on giving in the form of a stronger mindset.
Lastly, by reading this book I can almost guarantee that you'll feel more confident in yourself; you'll develop, or enhance, your mental toughness; take pride in your discipline and start, "Making things happen instead of waiting for things to happen to or for you."
Really enjoyed reading Dre's book. As I was reading, it felt as if he was right there having a one on one conversation with only me. Dre's heartfelt and sincere 4 part model will surely empower others to develop a mindset for success. This book is a keeper that can be used as reference and guidebook for self improvement and enhanced performance in all areas of life.
