Maximize Your Potential


You have the capacity for more, the capacity for greatness, the ability to move beyond the confines of your present failures, your fears, and the limitations society would place upon you.

  • Stop comparing yourself to others & overcome the burden of envy.
  • Build a stronger community by focusing on the people you already know.
  • Harness your ability power to change your circumstances.
  • Overcome the fallacy of long-term planning. Stop waiting for permission or for the right time or for the right circumstances.

Breaking Through the Greatness Gap

Understanding What Separates The Good From The Great

Typically, it is ten times more difficult to move from “good” to “great.” That last 10% up the grade, from 90% to 100%, is not for the faint of heart. It is only the determined few who will see triumph here. My professional work has included a lot of research into the differences between teams and individuals who achieve excellence vs those who struggle to achieve distinctive success.

It has been my observation that breaking through the Greatness Gap and achieving excellence is largely dependent on the habitual and disciplined pursuit of winning in the margins. Greatness stands in the balance of an individual’s commitment to growing mental discipline through daily practice of attention to detail.

Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness, it turns out, is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline.
— Jim Collins

We were pulled as an audience into his energy of relentless pursuit to not only live life all out, all in, all the time- but we saw his passion to help us all go unapologetically with him, and do the same in our own lives. People are intelligent, and too often bored at typical events. Bring someone that can educate, inspire and activate your audience, team or community, with REAL experiences of ceaseless courage, life’s disappointments, with valiant overcoming stories, and many levels of achievement.

Nick is one of the most powerful public speakers I know. He is especially talented when it comes to motivation and giving inspiration. It is helpful that he gives clear key points and really breaks down the process to achieve your goals. I’ve also had the privilege of receiving one on one coaching from Nick and he showed me the power of visualizing my goals and changing habits that were hindering me from growing.

We were pulled as an audience into his energy of relentless pursuit to not only live life all out, all in, all the time- but we saw his passion to help us all go unapologetically with him, and do the same in our own lives. In a world where “motivational” speakers seem to be everywhere, and “coaches” need only add the skill to a social media profile to be (arguably) legit, I highly recommend bringing an epic, world-class speaker to your event, leadership training, retreat, homecoming, graduation or cause.
