Extraordinary Happens Podcast

Through all episodes of Extraordinary Happens to date, we’ve uncovered a certain formula for success. If you’re pursuing greatness, it’s not just a commitment, it’s a lifestyle.

In 2008, Dan Mullen took over a losing program in the toughest conference in college football. By 2014, Mississippi State was one of the best programs in the league. That year, Dan led the team to its first No. 1 ranking in school history and since then, he’s continued to shape the Bulldogs into national contenders season after season. Now starting his eighth season at Mississippi State, Dan shares the inspiring mentality that has led him to this point.

If you look at Dan’s resume, his success is evident. But it’s his journey – one he’s still building – that is truly remarkable.

“You don’t just arrive at success, because if you do, you have no idea how to stay there or how you got there and how to continue to be successful. All the lessons you learn on your journey are what make you successful”, says Dan. His hard work is taken to the next level through long-term commitment, a willingness to make sacrifices and by establishing accountability for himself and those around him. “It starts with accountability, but when you have accountability, you can then have trust within an organization. When you have trust within an organization, you’re going to achieve things you never thought possible or new heights that have never been reached before”, says Dan.
