Unpacking The Best Press Conference Ever


A few days ago, NBA superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was asked about keeping his mind right during high pressure games. His answer, which this podcast opens up with, was a masterclass in high-performance psychology, and really, psychology for all of life. A short summary: “Focusing on the past is ego,” he said. “Focusing on the future is pride. Focusing on the present is humility.” In this episode of The Growth Equation Podcast, we deconstruct this killer quote along with the person behind it, covering topics like confidence vs. arrogance, the relationship between doing the work and humility, and what it means to be an imperfect star. If you are a sports fan you’ll love this. And even if you aren’t a sports fan, you’ll be sure to take away some gems that you can apply to your own life.
