The 1% Journal for Coaches

366 Challenges to Coach for Impact

Do you need a blueprint that will ensure you teach your players to be winners?

The 1% Journal for Coaches will help you master the fundamentals you need to show your players what it feels like to experience success!

The desire to become a coach usually comes because someone inspired us to give our best and showed us we could do more than we thought we were capable of. And we want to pass that along to the athletes we work with.

But it’s not easy. It’s hard to get kids to make a commitment to excellence and sacrifice for the good of the team. It’s difficult to build a culture of success and sustain winning. It’s a struggle to fight entitlement from both players and parents.

Perhaps you feel like you will never be able to achieve the goals you set out to accomplish. Maybe success always feels like it is just out of reach.

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

The 1% Journal for Coaches takes us on a daily journey to create a better version of ourselves. Continuous improvement allows us to maximize our gifts and abilities and strengthen our relationships and connections with our players. Ultimately, this allows us to move beyond just influence and inspiration in our leadership to creating a positive impact.

As coaches, we experience success when we write our own story from the inside-out and provide our athletes with the tools they need to succeed in life.


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 success 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.

These 12 Fundamentals of IMPACT are:
Have a Vision
Pursue Our Dreams
Seek Excellence
Grow Character Skills
Rise Above
Overcome Obstacles
Be a Lighthouse
Lead by Serving
Know Our Integrity
Live by Principles
Seek Peace and Fulfillment
Enjoy the Journey

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

Ultimately, our journey always provides us opportunities to create a better version of ourselves so we can give our gifts and abilities away to others and make a difference in the world.

Your journey of success awaits…
