This episode is part of the Halftime Series. It’s the middle of the year… are you still on track to meet your goals? Many of us have gotten off track but now is the perfect time to determine how the rest of the year will go. It’s time to grab the opportunity bull by the horns and ride it into submission with the help of these inspiring guests.
Todd Stottlemyre grew up around Yankee Stadium in “a school of champions.” His teachers were legends like Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, Thurman Munson, and his father, Mel Stottlemyre.
Growing up in that environment inspired Todd to dream of following in his dad’s footsteps and playing in Major League Baseball, but things weren’t always easy for this high-performing family. When Todd was just 15-years-old, his brother died after an extended battle with leukemia.
This devastated Todd, but his father’s leadership helped carry the family through that adversity and the community lifted him up. He credits the experience with helping him become the man he is today: a man who has spent 15 seasons in MLB and played on three World Series Championship teams.
Todd learned some incredible lessons in the school of champions, especially from his dad, and he wants to pass them on to others. He wrote Relentless Success: 9-Point System for Major League Achievement so that other people can benefit from the school of champions and live their championship life.
Everyone’s championship life looks different, but success is always built around these same core principles.
In the spirit of Halftime, you should follow Todd on Facebook and check out his recent Facebook Live videos. He’s been talking about how 2017 is all about the endless pursuit for human potential, and the only way to discover what we can achieve as human beings is to fail miserably – you have to get out there and go for it. We have to learn in order to move forward.
