As is our habit, when we have the honor of having a guest on the podcast, we have them back to ask me three questions. Reggie Williams returns today to rapid-fire the three questions on his mind:

What is your favorite song and why? I can’t give you a specific song, but you may be surprised at the current combo we have been enjoying in the Maberry household.

Who are the most famous people from Peoria, IL that you know? Hint – besides my granny, they include an actor, an athlete, and a government official from the Obama administration.

What was your biggest thrill in sports and your biggest disappointment in sports? From hat tricks to cheap shots, it is a pretty interesting array of experiences. We all have our Uncle Rico moments and today I’m sharing mine.

“The best day of my life is when I manage a winning game and the second-best day of my life is when I manage a losing game.” Tommy Lasorda

My guest today is Reggie Williams, former NFL linebacker and Disney executive turned author. We are discussing what it means to be “Resilient by Nature” and how we can turn negatives into positives.

How we deal with missed opportunities and being overlooked is proof of what we are made of. When you have been treated unfairly or experienced major disappointment, you can fill the void by strengthening yourself and others. Reggie share’s his experiences with us, from running into a childhood hero when he was ready to throw in the towel or seeing how the choices he made had ripple effects beyond his wildest dreams. Reggie’s story shows us our response to adversity is what sets us apart.

Our ability to give back and influence the next generation will require us to do better, to rise above our circumstances, and embody resilience.

How often do we learn great lessons and write them down, only to walk away and forget them? It is always a good idea to review notes. Dan Cockerell and I revisit and expound on some notes I put together on a return flight from a trip to Buffalo in April of 2018.

 

This event in Buffalo provided food for thought, ranging from how we care for the people that always show up to the importance of mixing up the way we approach tasks. When we allow others to be part of the story and present valuable information with enthusiasm, we provide a five-star experience. Creating your own luck and being open to the unexpected are key practices, especially when paired with enjoying the experience. In life, we often fear mistakes, but the ability to do what you need to do, even when you don’t know what that is will allow us to live life with forward momentum, even if we encounter failure along the way.

How do you remain in the present moment when responsibilities start to pull at you?

Jeff Noel and I are on a final day in Glacier National Park. We are recording from a beautiful location, and I already start feeling drawn to everything I have to do. 

Instead of focusing on the beauty in front of me, I am thinking about driving home. I am thinking about all of the work I have to do once I get home. 

Jeff and I discuss how we can remain in the present moment when other responsibilities start to pull at us. 

Just like most things you are good at, it takes practice. 

Jeff explains one of the keys is recognizing you are being pulled out of the present moment. Then you can ask yourself if you can let off the gas. 

One way to help you remain in the present moment is to add some margin in your schedule. That way you have less to worry about if something gets in your way and causes a time delay.

When you have invested time, money, or hope into something, how do you know when it is time to turn around?

Jeff Noel says it takes practice. You need experience before you know when you should turn around. 

Experience also helps you realize when you should say No. Saying no is a good time management tool. And it can help you not sink too much time into something you wouldn't be able to stick with. 

This episode will give you some consideration of knowing when it is time to turn around and walk in a different direction.

Jeff Noel and I are deep in the wilderness of Glacier National Park. After recording an episode of If Disney Ran Your Life, it prompted us to stop and record this conversation about being all in. 

Being all in, reaching for excellence, can leave someone burnt out. Knowing no matter how good you do, you can always do better. 

Aim for perfection and settle for excellence. Always set the bar high. 

If you set the bar high and don't make it. You at least know you did your best. 

If you set the bar low and make it. You will always have to live with the regret of never having known what was possible. 

No breakthroughs happen from people doing average work. 

If you want to have an impact you have to go all in.
