Just in time for the Super Bowl we’ve got a former NFL player and 3-time Super Bowl attendee, Mr. Grant Wistrom. Grant knows a few things about winning in the big leagues and in life. He played 9 seasons in the NFL, including six with the St. Louis Rams and three with the Seattle Seahawks. In those 9 seasons he made it to three Super Bowls, winning one with the Rams.
Though his pro career didn’t start off on that same foot, in fact he lost more games in his first season in the NFL than he had during his high school and college years combined, his second year with the Rams was worth it when they won the Super Bowl.
If you’ve ever been knocked down by life and wondered how to get back up and how to overcome failure, Grant will show you the way on this episode. Grant joins us to talk about how teamwork matters in the NFL and in any business or career path you pursue, how to celebrate your wins, learn from your losses and get ready for the next step ahead.
