Relentless: From Good to Great to Unstoppable by Tim Grover
“Being the best means engineering your life so you never stop until you get what you want, and then you keep going until you get what’s next. And then you go for even more.”
Being Relentless does not stop at Good or even Great, Relentlessness is becoming an Unstoppable force.
I had never heard the name Tim Grover when I started enjoying Relentless, but this guys is the definition of epic. Tim recounts in his own narrative how he had the dream of training professional athletes for a living. Dream that would usually get the typical response: Oh! That is so nice, so you want to work at a Gym. Tim would not only reply, but with passion shoot down those “suggestions” or “good wishes” out of the sky:
NO. I AM GOING TO TRAIN PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES
Not like this is an easy thing to say, specially when you are relentlessly calling teams like the Chicago Bulls and you get sent back to the out of college experience cycle:
“Hey Bulls, my name is Tim and I want to train your players”
“Tim, have you ever trained a professional basketball player before?”
“Then we are not interested.”
Tim never gave up, and eventually got an opportunity with THE Michael Jordan. And from there, this just gets even crazier.
