Tim S. Grover, known for his work with elite champions, wrote a book aptly titled Relentless, chronicling his training career and how he took legends like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, and others, from good to great to unstoppable.
In the book, Grover describes the workout regimen, both physical and mental, that he helped Michael Jordan implement over the 15 years they worked together. Relentless is a fitting description of the early mornings, late nights, and hardworking mindset of Michael Jordan.
With the release of ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary, we have an even better telling of Michael Jordan’s story and what made him one of the greatest basketball players of all time. We got to see why Michael Jordan was a relentless competitor on and off the court.
This glimpse into greatness gives success-focused entrepreneurs a vivid picture of how mindset can help us accomplish our goals and put in the work that helps us become the best versions of ourselves in life and business.

Michael Jordan may not have been the best. Still, he invested himself through consistent practice, a willingness always to learn, and a mindset that pushed him to be better.
