Tim Grover in his book “Relentless” shares some powerful insights and wisdom.  

Tim Grover was the trainer to Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, and many elite basketball players.

Tim writes “I don’t care how much you can lift, how fast you can run, or how many pull ups you can do. There are only 3 things I ask of every client. Show up, work hard and listen. That’s it. It requires no talent, no special genetics, or any skill whatsoever to show up, work hard, and listen.”

This is as simple and powerful as it can get. Anyone can indeed show up, work hard and listen

But how many do?

He further adds “When I train my athletes, it’s a dictatorship with 3 rules: show up, work hard and listen. If you can do those 3 things, I can help you. If you can’t, we have no use for each other. I will bust my ass for you every way possible, but I expect you to do the same for yourself. I am not going to work harder than you do for your benefit. Show me you want it and I will give it to you.”

We completely echo Tim’s sentiment and say the same for all of the financial professional partners that we have. We will bust our ass off for you every way possible, but we expect that you do the same for yourself.

How many do you think are willing to show up, work hard and listen?

Are you?
