A powerful combo today that I came across. A Jon Gordon Podcast - a MUST listen to episode: https://positiveuniversity.com/episode/cori-close/ The things that came out of this podcast were simply amazing!! The mental side to sports, but also life!! It's something that we don't "work out" enough - our mental strength for going through life. There ar…
 
This is a quick hitting thought to start your week off & it comes from an incredible difference maker, Jon Gordon. I've been reading his book "The Power of a Positive Team" & I have used my red pen so much in this book that it looks like a little kid got a hold of it. So many powerful lessons in this on - sports, business, families, all around life…
 
Coming home from work I got to thinking on something I had to share with you. One of my students asked me a great question. The question came from one of the first activities that I do with students where I ask a few questions to help get to know them. The last question is always where I invite them to ask me any question that they want to, and I'l…
 
A couple of powerful podcasts got me reflecting on a few things. I picked up this new mindset from Joe Niego from Brian Buffini’s podcast. “Just do it. Just do it now. Just do it always.” This fits so much into today’s world. This is a MUST LISTEN TO podcast! Find it HERE. Really got me thinking about so many things & I know you will be able to rel…
 
Love to start off a new week with some lessons from John Maxwell. This week from my Daily Reader, he wrote about if the people that we are close to are not adding value to our life, maybe it's time we find some new friends. The main point is that life is too short to spend our time with people who take us down the wrong path. It's also too short no…
 
The PGA had a special award to dish out the other night - it was the Payne Stewart Award! Zach Johnson was the award winner and it's founded on the ideals of Character, Sportsmanship & Charity. Check out Payne's story HERE. The lessons that I got from not only Payne Stewart and how he lived his life, but also the award recipient, Zach Johnson - WOW…
 
I went back into school today to drop off my computer to connect it to our network so it could get 6 months or so of updates. I picked up some great lessons from a few coworkers that I got to see and chat with too. So it was very eye-opening for me to head into school today. The lessons, I'm sharing with you here. As a bonus - check out another Joh…
 
This is a great question to always reflect upon - Are You Teachable? Do you give into the opportunities in life where you can learn new things? Or, are you one that either thinks you know it all or that you are good enough where you are at and you don't want to learn anything new? There are 10 questions that I share here that are awesome for us to …
 
A blast from the past - Napoleon Hill is a big time leader in the Leadership arena world. There are some big time teachings here where he gives us some ideas about the importance of changing our mental attitude. When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change. But, it's got to change from the inside out. These lessons are pow…
 
A couple of thigs here I wanted to share with you. I was thinking about how proud I am of so many former students and other people that have crossed paths with me throughout life - for chasing after their dreams and goals & sharing their stories about it. At the same time, I heard the latest podcast from my good buddy, Dr. Jeff Lip where he intervi…
 
Since school is starting up soon (and some place it has already started), I wanted to share another Facebook Live video that I did to draw your attention to a fabulous podcast from John O'Leary. This one was an open letter of gratitude towards teachers where for me, this gets not only really personal, but very emotional too. Check it out HERE. List…
 
Recently I took the time to go out to have lunch with my parents and my sister for our dad's birthday. We met at one of their favorite places to eat and had a wonderful time. I did a Facebook Live video before I left the parking lot to drive home and I wanted to share it with you here. We need to take the time for things that are important to us. W…
 
Took a Facebook Live video that I did and I wanted to share it with you today. My two good buddies, Dr. Jeff Lip and Nick DeNault had a fabulous conversation on the power and necessity of forgiveness. HERE is Jeff's podcast where you can listen to their entire discussion. Hope you enjoyed this one and that you got a lot out of it. Thanks for listen…
 
Had a great message from a good friend, Tricia Miller sent this to me - A fantastic reminder about the fact that there is a role for everyone we meet in our lives. Not only does it get me thinking about the people in my life and what I've learned from them, but also - what can other people say about me? What have I done to make a difference for oth…
 
Got a couple of texts from Gary Vee, and I had to share them with you! They were all about loving yourself & being self-aware of the great things we can choose to do for ourselves. Not because anyone else did the same, or to make our parents proud (which is not a bad thing in and of itself) - but doing things for you!! That's why I think it’s so im…
 
One of the biggest blessings I have going for me are the many students that I get to connect with throughout my 31 years of teaching so far. Ashley Scheetz is one of those former students of mine, that has also become a teacher. So many of my students have become "teachers" in they teach this teacher many lessons that I know I need to have in my li…
 
A lot going on today on top of all the things going on in our world, it can get overwhelming a little bit at times. I did a Facebook Live video where I mentioned some things that are on my mind a bit. Worrying is something that I do, but I try not to let it get out of hand. It started piling up a bit the morning when I thought about a few things di…
 
I wanted to throw a couple of things at you to start our week off. I got this text from Gary Vee, he said "The opportunity you have for the rest of this year is far greater than you think, as soon as you "think it" and "see it" your actions will follow!" This can be all of us! Sam Crowley says it all the time - the work we put in today can start to…
 
All my guests have given me so much inspiration along with some powerful lessons, Erica Tyler is certainly another on that does that here today. I got to tell you, I ended our call with each other having tears of gratitude being so grateful for this young lady coming into my life. As I said at the start of this show, she has been such a wonderful e…
 
It hit me hard again as to how many great people that have had the privilege and honor to work with throughout my lifetime. Tyler James is a former student of mine and now a PGA Professional that I got the opportunity to catch up with for this interview. What an inspiration this guy is in so many ways, especially as an example of chasing after thin…
 
Powerful message thanks to a former student of mine who posted how frustrated he was with the upcoming election. I did this on a Facebook Live video - find the video on my FB Page at Coach John Daly. It really hit home with me because I'm also frustrated too at what is going on. I also get down, depressed & full of anxiety at times from this and ma…
 
Had an awesome conversation to start my day off in a wonderful direction with the one and only, Travis Joseph. Travis is a graduate from Lake Shore High School - class of 2012 who now lives down in Florida and is in the finance area of high-end boats and air craft. He takes us through a leadership journey in our talk, especially leaning towards ser…
 
So many lessons from "The Final Summit" by Andy Andrews all brought to you again, from Dr. Jeff Lip. I had to bring up another powerful point that I got from Jeff the other day when we recorded an episode for his show. I love the thought that "I cannot do everything, but I can do something." That something comes in many forms and of those many form…
 
Got all fired up from a conversation with the one and only Dr. Jeff Lip. We were talking about a book that we both recent read, "The Final Summit" by Andy Andrews. It was an eye, mind & heart opening book and Jeff brought up some great points that we talked about on his show. Check jefflip.com to find his podcasts to listen to it. One thing I wante…

Another difference maker has found their way onto a podcast with me. Cody Vargo has such a powerful story of life's different directions taking you to an ultimate destination that you find a lot of joy and passion. Awhile back, Cody told me about the book, "The Energy Bus" by Jon Gordon and what a powerful book it was. We had a great conversation a…
 
I saw two things to share with you to start your week off in a good direction. First it was a quote from Napoleon Hill - "You are what you think about, so be very careful to keep your thoughts positive and on your goal." In other words - guard the 6 inches or so that is between your ears!! It's the most valuable space you own! Watch what you allow …
 
So good to catch up with Coach TI as we all call him and what a great conversation we had. The last time Tom was on, was with the good Dr. Jeff Lip, way back in episode #189. Tom goes through so many great points that can help so many people - especially with what we are all going through now in the world. Tom got quite an accomplishment done over …
 
Had to share this with everyone along with trying something new of working with my Facebook Live, my YouTube channel and using it here in a podcast. So far, so good. So many things happened in the last 24 hours or so that has taught me some important lessons dealing with Appreciation & Gratitude. Yesterday for example, I was in a great group chat w…
 
What a great time on the road in the car when I recorded this podcast. I did a Facebook live on a few thoughts from a John O’Leary podcast where he interviewed a TV & Radio guy from Minneapolis, Minnesota - Mike Max who was directly involved with covering some of the unrest there after the death of George Floyd. Bottom line - we are more alike than…
 
This was a distinct pleasure talking with Stacey Phillips and quite frankly, it was long overdue for me to reach out to her to have a powerful and inspiring chat. Stacey is one of my former players from just about 25 years ago that I'm very proud of all the things she has accomplished throughout her life. From being a 3 sport athlete in high school…
 
Once again I wanted to share with you one of the outstanding interviews that I was able to pull off with this special guest for my Principles of Leadership class with my seniors during the Spring Term this past school year. Coach Rich Popp was able to stop by and I was so glad to catch up with him so that he could share with the countless leadershi…
 
I think this reading more books is tending to agree with me as I am more fired up now than ever before and reading has been a big part of it. My current read is "Mean People Suck" by Michael Brenner and it's another good one. No big surprise as I heard about this book on John O'Leary's Podcast - http://johnolearyinspires.com/2019/12/michael-brenner…
 
This is a special treat as I took my interview with our Superintendent, Dr. Joe DiPonio for my Principles of Leadership class 3 months ago and put it together to share with you. The lessons are priceless for the class of 2020 and for all of us too. These lessons can be applied to your life right now, no matter what you are doing. It's a powerful te…
 
Had another fantastic reminder about not only the person I want to be but also who I don't want to be. This reminder was not so gentle either & I deserved every bit of humble pie that I had to swallow. Best one to teach these lessons to me of course is my wife. The one that is correct so many times more than she's not. The scoreboard went up for he…
 
This podcast was out awhile ago but not only did it get me thinking back when I heard it, I also got some great input when I read about it in John O'Leary's book - "In Awe". (this is one I will keep reminding you to go out and get). It's one key question that Fr. Tom Hoar mentions that gets us thinking about making a change - "Have You Had Enough?"…
 
Here it is in writing - Get John O'Leary's book, "In Awe" as it's another life changer, just like his first book "On Fire" was. You have heard me say it and now it's in written in words too to remind you. ;-) This story is about William Borden and these 3 life-changing mindsets of his. These are powerful. No Reserves - not leaving anything in the "…
 
Found another quick story from John Maxwell where he shared a great story about a guy who counted out his marbles of life. He related to each marble representing one Saturday of our lives with the average life being at 75 years. With that math, I have a little over 1000 Saturdays left at my current age. It reminds us to not put things off. It remin…
 
Got out of the old comfort zone today - I recorded this podcast along with a Facebook Live video a few days ahead of time. I found something from John O'Leary's book "In Awe" that I really wanted to share with you. It was Ch. 28 on Showing Up! He talked about waking up - getting out of our own way and stop being fearful about doing things we know w…
 
The story continues with part 2 with Ashley and Dave Ruekert as they take us on a journey with the ups and downs of their journey with their young daughter in the hospital. I hope you got a chance to listen to part 1 as it will make a whole more sense getting that one under your belt first. See show #412. I actually toyed with making this into part…
 
Well, I knew had to have this star pro hockey player back on. After all is still the #1 ranked podcast episode from all my shows. Shame on me for waiting so long to have him back on. He was on show #183 from back in July of 2018. Shawn shares so many lessons for his different directions his hockey career has taken him. All these lessons can be conn…
 
Getting some great reading done lately from John O'Leary's book - "In Awe" and I wanted to share just a bit of motivation from it that I just ran across. John was sharing a story about meeting Augie Nieto, a man with ALS and the lessons he taught John. A long time for Augie to tell John, "I don't want to be ignored." It is time for all of us to ask…
 
What a very special treat today where I got to sit down with Coach Dave Ruekert and his superstar wife Ashley. They have a tremendous story to share with us and I know this will not be the only time we visit with them so they can share this incredible journey full of so many valuable lessons. This was the most emotional show that I’ve ever done, an…
 
Fun times at the Orthodontist! It was great to get out for a normal type of appointment and I actually found some fun moments from what would normally be something that most people want to avoid. Most of us know that sound of a drill at a dentist office and there a not many people that can say they like it - I don't care for it at all, but I've bee…
 
Got up this morning, got a few things set for our final week of our classes online & I found this passage from John Maxwell that I had to share with you to start the week off right. "A Great Attitude is your Greatest Asset" was the title of the thoughts for today and I found it as a great quick read on a Monday. He mentions from Dennis Waitley in t…
 
I found so many fantastic thoughts and ideas from the book "Raise Your Game" by Alan Stein Jr. One I had to share with you is what he talked about being a mismatch and you know what? I totally agree with him on this one. He mentions the power of negativity over positivity and that we must come up with basically 5 times as many positive moments, int…
 
Starting out my day with a few thoughts from John Maxwell is always a good start to any of my days. Building Trust is probably the biggest thing in a relationship, and we are all in need of some of that now for sure. There are so many things that we all need to do in building this with people & it really starts by us working on ourselves. You know,…
 
Amazing and powerful topic that came to me in my readings from John Maxwell on the important value of Listening. In today's world with everything happening with the pandemic along with protests all over the place about the tragic death of George Floyd, this topic is something that can help so much in the scary times we are in. The value of listenin…
 
Woke up today my friends feeling a bit down, sad, angry; heck I felt like that last night too... in fact many days lately. To watch & see what is happening in our country today, the world too - and it's nothing new, it's the horrible things that people do to each other throughout history; it's just sucking the life out of all of us! I woke up this …
 
Saw a great thought from Napoleon Hill - "The individual who only does enough work to get by seldom gets much more than "by." What a great reminder about effort. Life is really about what you put into it; you generally get out of it. It is a reminder also that our harshest critic and our toughest competitor should be ourselves. This was a great ref…
