• A True Competitor: Yogi Roth

    September 7th, 2012 | BY: | IN: A True Competitor

    Today we are unvileing our new A True Competitor series, where we will profile true competitors every week. Stay tuned to hear from people who truly compete for life. 

    Our founder, Yogi Roth, is all inspiring and a true competitor—in all facets of his life. Growing up in a small town in Pennsylvania, sports was all he had. Roth and his buddies met every morning before school to play anything you can imagine.

    And that’s where his competitiveness truly began—on the courts of the corner of Main and North Turnpike in Dalton, PA.

    When Yogi was set to leave high school, his coaches and mentors all advised him to go to a smaller college, allowing him to have the chance to be a Charles Woodson, two-way type of player for the football team.

    While that could be exciting, “at the end of the day, it just never felt right,” Roth told WinForever. After a visit to the University of Pittsburgh, Roth knew what he had to do. He walked-on the next season and lived his dream as a Panther wideout.

    “My dream since I was a kid was to play Division-1 football. And I was going to go do that,” said Roth.  “And when it was all said and done, I didn’t have the next dream in mind.

    So, Yogi went searching for what his next dream was. It took him to Australia, Fiji and Bali. He began travelling the world in attempt to figure himself out.  “And that’s when I realized what was embedded in me at 6—from my mom who said, ‘hey you get to live in America you can do anything you want’—that my goal in life was to influence people on a really big scale. And when it hit me like that I said, ‘Okay, cool, I can chase anything I want.’”

    Roth says that we can all relate to dealing with stress and difficulty. Sometimes, people struggle with finding themselves. But he says that the biggest real world issue is having people answer these questions:

    • Who am I?
    • What do I stand for?
    • What are my beliefs?
    • What are my uncompromising principles?

    And what he found out is that no one knows those answers until they’re asked.

    At WinForever, “what we’re trying to do is create a way to help people develop who they are, so they can be the best they can possibly be, so they can maximize their potential, so they can compete to do it better than it has ever been done before,” said Roth.

    And he says it is so easy to do.

    In the words of Yogi Roth: What is your WinForever? And that’s what makes this so much bigger than just a book, one documentary, one iconic coach. It’s about the people listening right now.”

    We’re on a mission to influence people and help them maximize their potential. Yogi was the brain behind our movement and continues to compete to do it better than it has ever been done before with great effort and great enthusiasm.
