Today on the show we’re talking with Barry Sanders about his esteemed football career, winning the Heisman, breaking records, and being inducted into the Hall of Fame. Barry talks about how he is always raising his own bar, there is never a “top”, you’re always working, and grinding to achieve your goals.

Barry always loved what he did and he saw success when the team succeeded, he could have had the all-time rushing record in his rookie season, but he let the guys who didn’t get to play often in. He never had to prove anything to anyone but himself.

Staying in the moment and not looking too far ahead has been Barry’s motto his whole life. He played with guys in high school who thought they were going to the NFL. Barry knew that he had to take things one step at a time and become the best without losing focus on where he was.
