Key points from the show

There is no restart button in life

Football was second to music

People tend to go back to their roots

Going back to school for skill development

Never underestimate the serendipity of life

Let a closed door open another one

Being apart of something bigger than yourself

Playing different roles as a budding entrepreneur

Thomas’s first invention started with a personal problem

Listening to the market, being perceptive, and having the faith to step out

Football was a part of his lifestyle, it wasn’t his life

All his coaches knew he had other aspirations outside of football

Wise words from Deion Sanders

As a pro it’s important to have your own identity

Finding out who you are, but still being a part of a team

Hanging around people that aren’t athletes

Never hide behind your jersey

Don’t be a robot

Your best is enough

Other people will have negativity for you, no need to have it for yourself

Superstars have their own stories too

It’s amazing to have something go from a thought to reality

Take care of the little things

Pay attention to detail

Thomas plays EXCELLENT defense on the court

If anybody knows Rhianna hook a brothah up lol

How do I figure out what else I'm good at?

Take away

It's not uncommon to not know what else you're good at besides sports. You've been playing it your whole life. So, I was watching Last Chance U on Netflix and many of the guys said that if they didn't go pro, hell, D1 they didn't know what they were gonna do. That's not a hopeful place to be in. With that mindset you are bound to make stupid mistakes, not because you're a bad person, but you don't have hope for the future or your present. 

Sometimes we aren't giving ourselves enough credit though. That's what this episode is about. Seeing the person behind the jersey in all its glory. 

In this episode you will learn:

  1. What you may be overlooking about yourself
  2. What to do if you actually don't have any marketable skills
  3. How to get honest feedback and what to do with it
