EP. 4 Cletus Coffey

You are Not an Athlete

You are not an athlete, you are You. You just happen to play sports.

One of the biggest challenges I had upon retiring from competitive sports was with my identity as an athlete. 

I had considered myself an athlete, as did everyone in my life, since I was five years old. Nobody ever came up to me and said, "hey you are that awesome math kid." Instead most people talked to me about my games, awards, and future in sports. 

And I loved it. Until sports, which had been my entire life, was all over. 

If your identify is tied to anything other than being YOU, such as being an athlete, a coach, manager, CEO, Wife, Husband, or even a parent, Episode 4 is a must listen.
