Not reaching your potential? Are you swimming in the right sized fish bowl? This is a metaphor for what place you currently are in your career. Are you pushing yourself to see who you can be or what you can accomplish in your job, sport or life? I had an amazing conversation with my teammate and sport psychologist Dr.Bhrett McCabe (@drbhrettmccabe) about the fish bowl that our athlete’s choose to swim in. We broke down this subject during our 1st episode of McCabe and The Coach on my Coach Glass Podcast. Bhrett said that the human mind is like a goldfish in a fishbowl. A goldfish’s growth is based on the size of the tank it is living in. If you put a goldfish in a large tank the goldfish will grow. If you throw it in a pond it will become a Koi fish. Put it in the ocean and it will die….. because it is a freshwater fish folks! You get the idea. Growth is based on the environment. I am constantly jumping from current tank to a larger tank because I love challenge and always strive to swim in new environments and experience new experiences. Some of you are a big fish in a small tank because you are afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. That is fine but you will never truly fulfill your potential until the day you dare to swim with the sharks! Yes you might get eaten but if you swim around enough and use all the lessons you learnt in the previous tank you might just survive, flourish and grow a fin! That is a fish joke by the way. On the podcast Bhrett went deeper and dropped some of the techniques that he has used with some of the greatest athletes of our generation. No get off your tail fin and SWIM! #CoachGlass

Coach Glass Podcast Ep. 8 Dream Big & Over Deliver, How to Set Goals for Success
Dream Big and Over Deliver is the philosophy I live by. If you want to accomplish your dreams you need to plan for your dreams, visualize your success, go to sleep thinking about your dreams, wake to your dreams then do the most important thing…… Get off your ass and work till you get it!!! In this Episode I share with you my philosophy, how I use it, examples of how it has helped me accomplish my dreams and what to do once you get what you worked so hard to achieve. I share how I became a TPI Lead Presenter and how to rest your goals once you reach them to continually grow. Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill was the inspiration for me and taught me how to develop a plan and stick to it.

Team Canada Am Camp: What do you do at these camps?
I get asked a lot… What do you do at Team Canada Camps? Here is a great video featuring some of the elements that make up our Golf Canada Am Camps and a glimpse of what our Coaching Team and Integrated Sport Science Team consist of. This is one of my favourite times of the year because the hard work of developing the golfer is behind us and now we get to see them perform. The Coaching Staff now have the job of making sure that the athlete can apply the skills developed all winter into the competitive environment. The physio, sport psych, nutritionist and myself will continue to provide support throughout the season but the heavy lifting has been done! I am honoured to be a part of this group of dedicated coaches and specialists for the Amateur, Development and Professional Teams and have the opportunity to work with these amazing athletes. #CoachGlass
