Summary

From the elite performance coach for Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade and many others - and the author of the powerful best seller Relentless - a no-holds-barred formula for winning that is ideal for businesspeople, athletes and anybody wanting to achieve success.

In Relentless, Tim Grover showed that you need to be tough and ruthless - towards others and yourself - to achieve your goals. Now, in Winning he takes that skill repertoire to an even higher level, demonstrating why he is one of the world’s most sought-after mindset experts. Based on three decades of work with elite competitors like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade, Winning challenges you to destroy every obstacle in your path, even if, at the moment of greatest triumph, it may be all taken away.

Whether you’re an athlete striving to win, an entrepreneur building a business, a CEO managing an empire, a salesperson looking to close a deal or a high achiever determined to stand in the winner’s circle, Winning offers 13 key principles for ramping up your performance to the maximum. If you’re addicted to the taste of success and crave more, then you’re ready for the results-driven performance formula found here. And if you’re already winning and want to learn how to execute excellence repeatedly - so you can own not just this moment but the next and the next - then Winning is for you.

Winning is a never ending grind? 🥱

If youre looking for fuel on the fire to keep succeeding then look elsewhere.

The Author presented winning as gruelling never ending grind of sacrifice.

You need to know what success actually means to you and what balance of your time is important.

Tomorrow is promised to no one.

Enjoying the journey, the daily practice of working on goals worthwhile to yourself while spending time with loved ones is success imo

Millions in the bank, public fame are empty without that imo

One of the

There are only 2 books I have ever given a 5 star rating on audible. This book and Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins. Both will be consistent’s in my listening list for the foreseeable future. If you’ve been fortunate to like and enjoy this audiobook, listen to Cant Hurt Me and #StayHard. We’re all gonna make it

Very inspiring

Great book, highly recommend. It is good to know how top athletes think and push through to get where they are and also important to have key people around to make sure they keep winning. Thanks, Tim Grover!

Unapologetically brilliant

A motivational approach based on life experiences but without the nonsense, without the hype and without the bs

Good motivational material (esp. for NBA fans)

A fine book that inspires one to achieve more in their life. I'm an avid fan of basketball and NBA, thus found examples presented in the book interesting and informative, however not sure if that would be the case for someone not familiar with NBA stars and some background about them.

He's living off of MJ and Kobe's success

Early on in the book, Grover says he doesn't believe in luck. Then later in the book, he recalls how emotional he gets in The Last Dance because MJ took a chance on him. Well at least on some level he knows, without MJ having hired him, he'd have been just another anonymous personal trainer, working long hours to barely scratch out a living. While I strongly believe in hard work, dedication, persistence and all the other factors which are involved in success, there are indubitably elements of luck that also need to present, anyone who denies that is full of BS.

Grover continuously refers to himself as a "trainer", rather than what he actually is, a personal trainer. Almost because he knows the low status associated with being a personal trainer and doesn't want to put himself in that same bracket.

Grover leans heavily on the experiences of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant in the book, so much so that you start to feel perhaps they should have written the book rather than him. He considers himself a winner, but divulges only small sprinkles of information about his own life and experiences. This man is just hanging on the coattails of MJ and Kobe.

While he's heavily critical of motivational books, this is just another one of those. Only that the examples he uses are in the 0.001% genetic elite of their field - something he doesn't address in any meaningful way. He also seldom gives practical advice on what to do, he claims he's trying to tell you "how to think" rather than "what to think/do", but really it's just a cop out from a person who'd be nothing if he wasn't lucky enough to get hired by Michael Jordan.

If you want something that's truly inspiring, practical and can be applied to any field or disciple, listen to Mastery by Robert Greene.

Fantastic book

Amazing book. The root to GREATNESS at its finest. I took a lot out of this. It's made me understand that I'm not the only person on this. And even if I was, it's okay. You just got to accept it and do it. I strongly recommend it. Audible or a book. Let go

Gems amongst lots of sand.

This was worth finishing, as I started to engage with his vision by the end. It was more than a tad sycophantic and ‘aren’t I great at repeating the obvious’ however there was method in his ramblings. By the last third of the narrative, I believe that it changes my thinking, beliefs and mindset. Not quite a revelation; but develop of a theme. Worth a listen if your/teams performance has plateaued. A twist on the standard mindset to achieve goals.

Nothing of value

Work hard and focus is what this book says. No tips. Not worth my time.
