Video 5: Up Your Game – 8 Keys to Unlock Next Level Success

Talent, motivation or just “gutting it out” can only get you so far

How the world’s top athletes avoid getting "stuck"

Let me ask you a serious question: 

Do you sometimes wonder, why you’re still doing what you’re doing? 

Why you’re still working so hard, even though you just can’t seem to get ahead, no matter how hard you try? 

Why you’re still running your business or working that job, even though every day feels like a grind? 

You know you want more out of life. 

And around you, everyone seems to have no problem getting ahead, happily chasing and achieving their goals. 

Maybe you secretly envy the confidence and success of colleagues or other entrepreneurs… while they are busy living the life you know you should be living too. 

Sure, you have some good things going. 

But deep down you know you’re not living the life you know you’re destined for. 

Maybe none of the work you do feels like it’s making a difference. 

And all you wish for is some sort of light at the end of the tunnel… 

Something to give you that spark, that drive you used to have, so you can do those things that fill you up instead of drain you. 

Because honestly ask yourself:

How long can you keep doing this? Months? Years? Until you retire?

Listen, I hope you read every word on this page because the secret I’m about to reveal to you could change your life forever.

I’ll show you how you can work on things that actually excite you, that give you energy – instead of sucking you dry.

And I’ll show you how it’s possible to do this without sacrificing your health, your relationships or your core values.

No more pushing yourself for 5 days, trying to recover for 2 days – and then doing it all over again the next week.

Instead I’ll show you how to start living a life where you can tap into the ambition and desire that’s currently bottled up inside of you so you can finally do the things you actually enjoy every day.

And – most of all – a life you can look back on with pride and a sense of fulfillment. 

My name is Molly Fletcher. And for over 15 years, I worked as one of the nation’s top sports agents, negotiating more than $500 million in contracts for my clients. 

I’m talking Hall of Fame pitchers like John Smoltz, PGA TOUR golfer Matt Kuchar, broadcaster Erin Andrews, and basketball championship coaches Tom Izzo and Doc Rivers. 

And on this page, I’ll show you how to use their secrets to create the life you actually want. 

I’m also the author of 5 books. 

On my “Game Changers with Molly Fletcher” podcast, I regularly talk to athletes, coaches, entrepreneurs and thought leaders like: 

Working with the best athletes and coaches in the world for over 15 years and interviewing them on my podcast, I’ve had a front row seat to peak performance. 

I’ve watched and worked with those who burst onto the scene and stayed there. 

But I also saw countless others burn themselves out, without ever achieving lasting success. 

Not because they weren’t smart, ambitious or talented. 

It also wasn’t because they didn’t have big plans for their lives. 

The reason so many of them stayed way below their potential is the same reason that holds back most people – maybe even you.

Let me tell you a quick story about my friend Frank

He had a lot of things going for him. Back then, he worked as a sales executive at a large pharmaceutical company. 

He has a wife and 2 kids. 

And on paper, everything looked fine. 

But every time I talked to him, he was exhausted. 

He worked for one particularly stressful client…And work was taking its toll on his personal life. 

When I asked why he was putting himself through all this pain, he mentioned things like a “bonus,” a “possible pay raise,” and maybe even a “promotion.” 

At that time, I knew I had to dig deeper.

"What are you chasing?" I asked him.

“What?” he answered. 

“What are you chasing?” 

“What do you mean?” Frank was confused. 

“Why are you putting all your energy into something that’s clearly consuming you? 

Your health is slipping. Your family is compromised. What is your end goal? 

Is it really getting that raise?” 

He looked down, then slowly looked back up at me. And his answer hit me like a brick wall… 

“I don’t know.” 

Maybe you can relate… 

If you and I were having coffee and I asked you the same question, what would your response be? 

For many people it’s the same answer Frank gave… 

“I don’t know.” 

Because here’s the deal…

We tell ourselves: “When I get [X], I’ll be happy”

When I get that next raise, I’ll be happy. 

When I get that promotion, I’ll be happy. 

When I make that next sale, I’ll be happy. 

When I reach that revenue level, I’ll be happy. 

Unfortunately, it’s a game that never ends. 

There’s always the “next thing.” 

As long as we’re trapped playing it, we’ll always be miserable. Just like Frank. 

And that breaks my heart. 

Because honestly… 

How long do you think you can keep grinding away, chasing “goals” when you’re not even sure what your end game is? 

I’ve seen too many ambitious people, folks with incredible talent, head down that one-way-street.

And it always end in the same place: Burnout

Maybe you’re not there yet. Maybe you’re telling yourself you’ll just do it for another couple of months or years. Maybe you’re telling yourself you’ll be different. Deep down you and I both know that eventually, you’ll hit a wall. Because the truth is: People don’t burn out because they have too much to do…
People burn out because what they do doesn’t align with their purpose, their deepest values
If you’re just waiting for the clock to strike 5:00 pm every day… Or if you can’t wait for the weekend, because your work is just draining you… Or if every Sunday evening makes you anxious because of all the things you’ll have to do once Monday rolls around… Then there’s just no sugarcoating it: You’re probably not doing the things that are aligned with what really matters most to you. You’re probably not writing the life story of your dreams? Or leaving the legacy you really want to leave. And I’m not judging you. It happens to the best of us. But what else can you do? What’s the alternative? Well, from having a front-row seat to the world of top athletes and peak performers, I can assure you: The best don’t just chase their next win, their next medal or their next award. Instead, they focus on a process where massive success is the by-product of the things they do every single day. See, most people believe that the world’s top athletes are so successful because of freak talent or infinite motivation. And I won’t BS you: Michael Jordan, Serena Williams, Tom Brady – they’re all exceptional athletes. No doubt about it. However, they’ve reached the top of their game and stayed there for a long time for a different reason

And once you really, truly get this, you’ll get unstuck in your job or business

Look, most people see the accolades. The championship titles. The winners on the podium. 

What they don’t see, however, is the proven, step-by-step path these top athletes all took to get there. 

I know, because I’ve worked with them for more than 15 years. 

I lived in a world with people who won national championships, Cy Young Awards, Olympic medals and PGA Tour events. 

And there’s a difference between those who maybe won one title or award, but then disappeared… 

And the all-time greats – those who remain at the top of their game for years, sometimes decades. 

See, those who only focused on achieving their goal, were doomed to fail in the long run. 

There are people who’d wake up every day and tell themselves: 

“I’m gonna win the Super Bowl” 

But once they do, then what?

Because that one single moment in time has been their only focus.

When they win the Super Bowl and host a trophy over their head, finish the media road show, then what?

Suddenly their life has lost its purpose.

However, if they focused every day on getting better, they’d know what to do on Monday.

Houston, we have a problem

The same thing happens to astronauts after they go into space. 

Everything they did up to that point had one goal and one goal only: 

Their spaceflight. 

But when they return, many of them fall into a deep hole. 

They develop anxiety, depression, and they start drinking too much. Some even have to go through therapy or need medication. 

These principles apply to top athletes, they apply to astronauts – and they apply to you and me. 

Instead of chasing fleeting achievements like money, titles or promotions that will never make you happy… 

A deep, intrinsic desire to get better every day will take you much farther than superficial motivation ever could. 

So the question is:

How do you develop that kind of drive?

How do you develop that “thing” for you, which guides you past discomfort, over obstacles, and through uncertainty? 

Before I tell you the answer, let me give you a quick story. 

When I got into my career as a sports agent, I was over the moon. 

It was my dream job. I was thrilled to get the opportunity to fulfill that dream. 

And in the following years, I became very successful.

But then something happened, that I never planned for or expected

People asked me for advice on how to break into the sports industry. 

So as often as I could, I would meet with college students and professionals who were looking to gain their footing in the industry. 

But with the amount of work I did, it was harder and harder to find time for this. 

So while I was out on maternity leave with my twins, I decided to write a book about it. 

And people loved it so much that I started to get invitations to speak.

Me? A speaker?

Although I had what the world would consider a dream job, I immediately realized I had a message to share with the world that was helping people.

And that was when I realized that maybe I could live out my purpose more broadly, not “just” as a sports agent. 

Don’t get me wrong. 

I loved what I did every day. It’s not that I wasn’t fulfilled 

But after each talk I gave, I saw how my message was resonating. 

I saw the shift I could make in people’s lives.

I felt like I was MEANT to do it

For so long, my purpose had been tied to my career as a sports agent. 

I was helping my clients and their families during such a very unique window of time in their lives. 

But speaking was different. It gave me the chance to make a bigger impact. 

When I decided to go “all in” on speaking, it was scary. 

And even though I only had about 10 speaking engagements on my calendar for the upcoming year, that added up to less than 10% of my comp as an agent, I made the leap. 

I had moments early on when my confidence about my decision faltered. 

I had given up my dream job for something uncertain. 

People thought I was crazy.

But I knew I just couldn’t live with myself if I at least hadn’t tried to make it work. 

And make it work I did. 

To this day I’ve spoken to over 2 million people around the world and served 100+ Fortune 500 companies and hundreds of other incredible organizations. 

I shared the stage with amazing colleagues, authored 4 more books, created a podcast and extended my content into corporate training experiences… all because I decided to do on thing:

I stepped into my purpose

And once I did, magical things happened in my life. 

Doors opened up for me where there were none before. 

I have far more opportunities than I can even say “yes” to. 

And there’s not a day in my life where I’m not actively doing the things I was meant to do in this life. 

Is life now just a walk on the beach?

Absolutely not. 

It still gets tough. 

But I have an unshakeable “Why.” Something that makes any “How” doable. 

And that’s exactly how the world’s top athletes operate. 

They have their big “Why.” They want to inspire other people through what they do. 

And once they find it, they invest all their energy in it because they know they’ll get it back tenfold. 

Look, if you’re an entrepreneur, a mid-level employee, a business owner, you’re likely obsessed with time. 

Your day is run by a calendar. You check the time on your computer, your phone, your watch. 

You measure years by months, months by weeks, weeks by days, days by hours, and hours by minutes. 

You fill your schedule to the max. And you measure your productivity with how long you’ve worked.

But, while most people obsess over their time, the world’s top athletes obsess over their energy

They make sure they have the kind of energy to execute every single day. 

At the most basic level, great athletes like Michael Phelps or LeBron James, all ask themselves this one question: 

Where will I spend my energy?” 

In life, there’s lots of things we can’t control. But one thing we can control is where we put our energy. 

And that’s why these athletes rarely burn out. 

They set boundaries. They eliminate distractions. And it allows them to keep pushing every day, to get after it every day.

I’m sure you’ve sat in meetings you didn’t need to be in. 

I’m sure you allowed others to drag you into their issues. 

We all have. It’s human.

But once we look at our life through an “energy lens,” everything changes

It’s why some people burn out while others can perform at a high level for years, even decades. 

And at the end of the day, finding your purpose and guarding your energy are your two secrets to developing your drive. 

Whenever I tell this story, it makes sense to people.

They immediately understand the difference between watching your time vs. watching your energy. 

What most struggle with, however, is probably the same thing you’re asking yourself right now.

“OK, that’s great, Molly. But how do I unlock next-level success?”

And it’s a good question. 

But I have an answer for you. 

See, since becoming a full-time author and speaker, I’ve worked tirelessly to develop simple tools that help you find that answer yourself. 

After all, it’s a massive part of what I talk about during my exclusive keynotes to Fortune 500 companies.

But I’ve put “how to unlock next-level success” into a proven, repeatable process that you can follow along in my new course called:

Up your Game: 8 Keys To Unlock Next-Level Success

This on-demand video course guides you through a total of 8 keys, with each key building upon the previous.

Here's what's included in this course

Key #1: How to develop a limitless mindset 

What’s the difference between a limited mindset and a limitless mindset? A limited mindset will find all reasons why it WON’T work. A limitless mindset will find all the reasons why it WILL work.

In this key, I show you how to reframe the story you’re telling yourself, turn obstacles into opportunities and become unstoppable.

Key #2: Using curiosity to unlock new opportunities

Curiosity creates chances. And the only way to unlock your drive and achieve next-level success is to discover what you don’t already know. 

That’s why I show you simple, practical steps to create opportunities for you, using your natural curiosity

Key #3: Developing and living your purpose

As I said, nothing is a stronger guarantee for success than knowing your “WHY,” your true purpose. It guides you past discomfort, over speed bumps, and through uncertainty. 

In this key, I give you my practical answers and step-by-step strategies to find and live your purpose starting tomorrow.

Key #4: Developing iron discipline to achieve your biggest goals 

Discipline is about doing what you want MOST, not what you want RIGHT NOW. In this key, you’ll discover how to easily create habits that set you up for success.

Key #5: Building your resilience to recover fast 

The difference between GOOD and GREAT athletes is their ability to recover from adversity faster than everybody else. And what’s true for top athletes is true for you as well. 

In this key, I’ll show you how to use adversity to motivate and propel you forward.

Key #6: Developing unshakeable confidence to unlock your drive 

Like doing reps in your workout to get stronger, confidence is a muscle you build over time. 

And with my “Confidence Toolbox”, you have everything at your disposal to grow your confidence muscle one step at a time.

Key #7: How to amplify your drive through connection 

Your connections to other people are your multipliers. How good you are at building relationships determines whether or not you get what you want out of life. 

That’s why I give you my career-spanning best practices to build connections and open doors to opportunities that no one else saw before.

Key #8: How to take back control of your energy 

In our “Go, Go, Go” culture, it’s way too easy to get burned out. Too many demands and expectations drain our energy. 

If you look at the world’s top athletes, however, their great results are a byproduct of the decisions they make about WHO and WHAT gets their energy. 

That’s why in this final key, you get my best, practical strategies to focus your energy on what matters most.

My “Action Guide” to create lasting change in your life 

The difference between successful and unsuccessful people comes down to one thing: 

Do they use the information they get? Or do they nod along, say “That makes sense” – and forget about it the following day? 

That’s why you also get my “Action Guide”, your easy implementation assistant that ensures you actually use the content inside this course. 

At the end of this course, you know how to find your purpose, watch your energy and – as a consequence – develop your drive to keep going every single day.
