The Gold Standard with Leah Amico | Win the Day™ podcast
May 3, 2022

“Excellence in anything increases your potential in everything.”

Joe Rogan

If you’ve got big dreams, the standards you set for yourself are going to dictate your success.

I really can’t emphasize that enough.

Weak standards, poor performance. Strong standards, elite performance.

So that’s exactly what we’re going to talk about in today’s episode: the Gold Standard.

Our guest today, Leah Amico, has epitomized how discipline, self-belief, and faith lead to grandiose achievement – in any field. 

Leah is a three-time Olympic gold medalist with USA Softball, a two-time World Champion, and in the National Softball Hall of Fame.

While at the University of Arizona, Leah was a three-time national champion, a three-time First Team All-American, and a three-time First Team Academic All-American for her excellence both on the field and in the classroom.

Known for being one of the most clutch hitters of all time, Leah still holds the record for highest batting average in the Women’s College World Series. She’s also a college softball analyst with ESPN and Westwood One Sports, where she imparts her love and knowledge of the game to fans all over the world.

Outside of softball, Leah is a motivational speaker, with more than 20 years of experience on the national stage. 

In this episode we’re taking a deep dive into the pursuit of excellence and how you can increase your potential in everything that you do.

We’ll go through:

  • How to perform at your best in unrelenting pressure
  • The most fundamental characteristics for success in ANY field
  • How to understand – and unleash – your potential, and
  • The key to finding balance in the crazy world we’re in. 

Before we begin, the right bit of inspiration can completely change the trajectory of someone’s life, so if there’s a friend or loved one who needs to hear this episode or could use some help to Win the Day, share it with them right now.
