Have you seen the new docuseries about Michael Jordan called The Last Dance?
I didn’t know this about Michael Jordan until a few weeks ago… but he had a secret club called “The Breakfast Club.”
After a 3-year playoff losing streak to the Detroit Pistons in the late 80’s, Jordan decided to triple-down on his already legendary practice habit by creating a secret “club.”
He realized he needed to improve his strength and endurance to overcome the Pistons, so he set up a morning workout habit to specifically improve those traits.
It wasn’t long until some of his teammates became curious about his early-morning routine and joined him.
Every morning as early as 5 o’clock, they’d get together for intense workouts and then have a nutrient-rich breakfast to help refuel, repair, and rebuild their bodies.
This was in ADDITION to their normal practice schedule!
Back then, this holistic approach – combining nutrition and fitness – was considered groundbreaking.
It’s common now because it works … but the Chicago Bulls went on to become a legendary team, dominating the NBA in the 1990’s by winning 6 championships!
This is a great story for so many reasons, because the same strategy can be applied in our everyday lives. It isn’t just for pro athletes and wealthy celebrities.
First, the Bulls had a goal – they wanted to win, but first they needed to beat the physically dominating Pistons.
Jordan took control of the situation by figuring out what needed to change.
Then, he created an intentional, step-by-step plan to make that change possible, and hired a trainer and chef to help him.
He didn’t wait for his team to buy into his new morning workout habit – he started on his own.
And when they saw his success, his teammates joined him – and they made a serious dent in sports history.
