In this episode, we get to hear from a top athletic coach, and his perspective is so cool. When it comes to coaching people on making quick shifts from a losing to a winning mindset, David knows the way.

David Nurse is an NBA life and optimization coach, future bestselling author, and worldwide motivational speaker. As a former professional basketball player (both international and domestic) and a coach for the Brooklyn Nets, David has personally helped over 150 NBA players with their personal and professional development both on and off the court. He has been invited to speak in over 50 different countries on the topics of overall personal development, confidence building, leadership, and motivational growth.

This conversation is full of awesome tips, ideas, and perspective shifts to help you pivot at any time. I loved hearing how David has translated these lessons from off the basketball court and into everyday life. And make sure to listen to the end of the show for a special TGAG giveaway!
