The kids have a couple new acronyms you might not have heard of…
Let’s go to school on them first.
NGMI= Never Gonna Make It
WAGMI= We’re All Gonna Make It
Example: If you’re still holding your money in a savings account making .0005% interest instead of investing in assets… You’re NGMI
The inversion of that is WAGMI. Here’s an example that uses both:
If you’re still playing negative sum games in 2021= NGMI
Positive-Sum Games= WAGMI
Now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about ways coaches are NGMI in the near future.

You don’t leverage media so you can scale your impact and teach when you’re not physically present

To get trust you must give it away first
To gain influence you must allow a player to influence you
To get respect you have to give respect first
