When you commit to something 100%, your hunger for success becomes your daily motivation. You show up day after day and put in the effort, dedication, and strength to obtain what you want in this life. That, is called the Grind.
For Eric Leonard, grinding is the foundation for success in his life… graduating with a Bachelor in Science and a Bachelor in Arts in 3.5 years, a five year (and ongoing) professional soccer career, A Masters in Applied Mathematics, and the all-time appearance leader for Forward Madison FC.
Over the years, this simple yet extremely powerful mentality has taken hard work and put it at the front of his campaign for success. A mentality that is founded upon three words:
Grind. Believe. Achieve. The GBA Mentality.
Over three parts, Leonard uses his story of accomplishing his goals as a professional footballer to illuminate a path that anyone can follow to overcome adversity, fight against conformity, and ultimately achieve 1% more in their life.
