"Success leaves footprints" is one of the rules I live by. It's one of the most powerful truths I know of, and it's extremely applicable to today's episode of the OPP featuring 2-time Olympian Peter Shmock.
Peter is in the Oregon University Track Hall Of Fame. He was on the same track team as Steve Prefontaine (the Steve McQueen of running), was mentored and coached by the legendary Bill Bowerman - the same Bill Bowerman who invented the waffle outsole running shoe and helped Phil Knight found a little running shoe company called...NIKE!
Aside from his Olympic, Oregon, and Nike connections, Peter has coached a wide range of elite performers, from professional baseball players (Seattle Mariners for 11 years) to professional dancers in the Pacific Northwest Ballet.
To say he knows a thing or two about excellence and longevity is an understatement.
His new book, The Way of The Life Athlete lays it all out, but I take you inside his brain for an inside look at the common traits shared by some of the world's most successful people - in sport, business, and life.
Amid great storytelling, here are few of the key lessons Peter shares in this episode:
