“I’ve learned that if you want to WinForever, Always Compete,” Jake Olson said in the opening line of Saturday’s ESPN College GameDay feature. “You’re either competing or you’re not.”
If you have followed the WinForever program–or Pete Carroll–during the last several years, chances are you remember the Jake Olson story.
When Jake was 10 months old, he lost his left eye to cancer. Four years, ago, Jake Olson had to have surgery–which would remove his right eye. It brought people to tears. Then, Pete Carroll brought Jake into his USC program–providing lifelong bonds with coaches and players. But it became even more inspiration to the players, including center Kristofer O’Dowd and quarterback Matt Barkley. He was greatly involved with the … Read More
We always love hearing stories and triumphs of other competitor’s journeys! This week, we received a highly inspirational email from Dan R.
Please take a few minutes to learn how impactful WinForever has been on Dan’s life.
“Here is a little update on my progress… I can’t begin to articulate through words, the sense of joy, hope and renewed direction that I am experiencing as I work through the Win Forever Program. I didn’t expect that this would turn out to be a life changer for me when I downloaded Win Forever onto my Kindle. I liked the book so much that I wanted to reinforce what I was learning, so I bought the Audible.com version and I have been … Read More
From Sherman: “When you play at a high level, a game has nothing to do with the opponent; it has everything to do with us. That’s what makes us different, and that’s what makes playing in the NFL special.
“That’s the way we look … Read More
Another profile has emerged as we all prepare for an exciting Sunday Night Football game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers.
This one, coming from Joe Posnanski of NBCSports.com, focuses on Coach Carroll’s WinForever philosophy, specifically the WinForever pyramid that we demonstrate often.
The NFL hadn’t seen a coach like Carroll before. The difference between the ‘Belichicks’ and Carroll are 180 degrees.
As the story goes, Carroll went to develop the WinForever pyramid after he was fired in New England and before he was hired as the new head coach at USC. As Carroll says, he “needed those challenges to bring forth my truths, soon to be revealed.”
Clearly, the central theme of the pyramid is Competition.… Read More
Upstart Business Journal has come out with a very intriguing story, focusing on Coach Carroll. In this article, Upstart Business Journal highlights the fact that Coach has taken a below-average Seattle Seahawks team and turned it into a Super Bowl contender within just a few years.
His leadership style, the journal notes, can be applied to a startup and to leading a company. There is a lot to like, including the three lessons that can be transferred from the football field to the board room. See for yourself, with the following taken from the article:
Pete inspires his team and his program to “do it better” than ever before. He … Read More
As everybody knows, WinForever–including Pete Carroll–has created an approach and foundation based on the great John Wooden. On Throwback Thursday, we give you a true throwback from 2001, when John Wooden took the stage at a TED Conference, speaking about the difference between winning and succeeding.
This is an incredibly important subject, where we really preach competition over “winning,” or becoming victorious. Winning, or success, for John Wooden and WinForever “is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming.” That’s my all-time favorite definition of success.
Did you do the best you can? Then, you won. That’s it.
“Be more concerned with your … Read More
As we gear up for training camp throughout the NFL, college and high school football, teams are laying down their foundation for the 2013-14 season and beyond.
Seattle Seahawks’ cornerback Richard Sherman graces the cover in the upcoming issue of Sports Illustrated. On his right wrist, however, holds a special meaning to Sherman and the entire Seahawks team. Make sure you get a glance of what we are referring to.
“SI’s Lee Jenkins chronicles Sherman’s rise from a skinny kid growing up in Compton, Calif., to a fifth-round pick by the Seahawks in the 2011 draft. Now, he headlines one of the best defenses in the NFL and is a key cog in what should be a Super Bowl

As we walk along the Camino towards Santiago we are guided by only yellow arrows. But, it is like they have mind of their own, playing games on you as if they are a long lost pal of Dr. Michael Gervais.
For instance, when you have not seen a yellow arrow for over a mile and one begins to panic–a little yellow triangle shows up to guide you in the right direction, basically saying, “I got you, young traveler.”
But it also shows the other side to her along this path. Yes, these cute yellow signs point a pilgrim in the proper direction and they never say how far away one is from the destination.
After over … Read More
Want to just get lost? When was the last time you felt alive? Are you in need of adventure?
Are you living your life without limits?
For the last decade I’ve been fortunate to explore the world and its beauty. Ranging from my first international trip to Australia when I thought kangaroos and surfboards would literally be on every corner to 40 days, lost, unemployed and eventually in love at 26 during Carnival.
Most recently, I explored Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos gaining an understanding of this world’s untold history, as well as witnessing the dark side of travel while in danger in the Middle East and detained in central Africa with nothing more than instinct.
Each time, I was … Read More
