If you’ve ever joined a gym or re-started your workouts, you know The Third Day.
Day One, you feel great. New gym clothes, new sneakers to break in, a new trainer… new everything! The workout is tough — you’re not in shape, remember? — but it’s fun to be back and doing something new. You drag yourself to the bathroom mirror and say to yourself, I’m DOING this!
Day Two brings some soreness, your body reminding you how long it’s been since it worked this hard. The workout kicks your butt, but you’re still excited about this new experience; it’s only the second day after all. You drag yourself home and say to yourself, I’m DOING this!
On The Third Day, things are… different. You snooze the alarm a time or two. Getting out of bed sounds like you’re making a bag of microwave popcorn. You don’t want to hear your trainer’s mouth. You seriously considering quitting this whole getting-in-shape scheme; you’re still within the 10-day cancellation period.
The Third Day is that situation where it’s no longer new and exciting, but there’s still a job to be done — and you are responsible. Mastering The Third Day is about the discipline to show up and do that job, regardless of how you’re feeling. The Third Day is remembering that you’re a professional — then, showing up and proving it.
The newness wears off eventually. It’s not as exciting as it used to be. Staying mentally “On” is a challenge. How do you keep the momentum to finish strong?
It comes down to that dirty word that we want to avoid: Discipline.
In this engaging and empowering Keynote, 9-year professional basketball player and #1 content publisher Dre Baldwin shares the Mental Game keys that activate you to do the work when you least feel like it. You will learn what you Action Triggers are and how to get yourself active when you least feel like it.
Dre “DreAllDay” Baldwin started playing basketball at age 14. Didn’t make his high school team until his senior year — and spent that season on the bench.
5 years after his final high school game, which he watched from a great seat on the bench, Dre signed his first professional basketball contract, beginning a 9-year career. Around that same time, Dre published his first of over 7,000+ videos and created the "Work On Your Game" brand that is synonymous with the highest level of the Mental Game.
In this engaging and inspiring keynote, you will learn the Mental Game keys Dre learned to go from a benchwarmer to a professional that apply at work, in the gym and in life.

... All due to his Discipline: showing up and Doing The work, EVERY DAY
A speaker who
lived Everything he Speaks 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?
So you don't put me in the box with others whose backgrounds may match...
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.

@DreAllDay with the hoops = life keynote. @DreAllDay killed it at the opening keynote. He's kinda tall
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.
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. -
Woah. One of the most inspiring and empowering kickoffs to a conference I’ve ever experienced. Thank you,
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.
Thank you!!!!!! You were amazing!!!! The students were talking abut your talk ALL DAY TODAY!!!!
