The 1% Journal for Athletes

366 Challenges to Play for Impact

Do you want to help your athletes build confidence and reach their full potential?

The 1% Journal for Athletes will help teenagers use their sport to make an impact!

Do you want your players to show more leadership in the locker room and on the field?

Maybe the young people you work with seem to lack drive, motivation, and grit.

Or perhaps you wonder if your athletes will ever figure out what it takes to be great.

We all have a desire deep within us to make a difference with our lives. But we often look in the wrong place to fulfill that desire and we chase misguided goals.

Confidence does not come from collecting accomplishments, recognition, or status. It’s something we discover when we write our own story from the inside-out and give away our gifts and abilities.

The 1% Journal for Athletes takes competitors on a daily journey to create a better version of themselves. Continuous improvement allows them to strengthen the relationships and connections with their coaches and teammates. Then, they can move beyond just influence and inspiration in their leadership to creating a positive impact.


every story has a HERO

every hero goes on a JOURNEY

every journey is an opportunity to make an IMPACT


As the hero of our story, we do not want to simply pass through the stages of our journey reacting to the circumstances of the world around us. We need fundamentals we can employ to help ensure we experience transformation and we use our experience to make an impact on others.

Our impact comes from executing FUNDAMENTALS.

These 12 Fundamentals of Impact work in pairs through an INSIDE-OUT process.

Inside fundamentals help us employ MINDSETS of impact.

Outside fundamentals guide us to take ACTIONS which make a positive impact.

Each one of the 366 challenges in this journal aims to help us develop one of the fundamentals we need for our JOURNEY.

Ultimately, the journey always provides the hero opportunities to create a better version of themselves so they can give their gifts and abilities away to others and make a difference in the world.

Your journey awaits…

It's not about your goals...


...It's about who you become in the process.

It's not about avoiding adversity...


...It's about gaining strength in the pain.

It's not about self-expression...


...It's about self-donation.
