Iron Sharpens Iron

It’s funny how the universe works. I’m just about a week away from major knee surgery and my MIND-set and SOUL-set have never been stronger. My body may be in pain but that’s about to change. And that is GOOD!

Interesting enough, I’ve had more new, unique speaking opportunities over the last few months than ever before. And the cool thing is, these speaking opportunities are on 2 THINGS that I love:

1. FAITH. I am a man of faith. While I don’t go around all the time and preach, Pastor TD Jakes says, “Everything in you is a ministry.” #Truth

2. KIDS. I love coaching and teaching kids. And while my primary audience I work with is adults, professionals, coaches, fitness enthusiasts, and high-performers/executives, talking to kids keeps it REAL…and keeps it FUN!

Today’s “IRON SHARPENS IRON” MindRight Maniac episode shares 3 recent talks I did. One is to a local middle school. The other two are to local high schools. All in all, I spoke to over 1,000 kids in these 3-talks. #SoulSinging

Check out “IRON SHARPENS IRON” here…

My hope is that this MindRight Maniac episode gets you STRONGER.


A STRONGER spirit & soul.

And ignites you to go out and train to get a STRONGER body.

When the body, mind, and soul are all soaring, then nothing is impossible. And for that I am grateful.

Create an amazing week. And thank you for what YOU do. Remember, “IRON SHARPENS IRON.”

Everyone you hang out with, COUNTS.

Everything you watch, COUNTS.

Everything you read, COUNTS.

Everything you listen to, COUNTS.

Everything COUNTS.

Make it COUNT today. #IronSharpensIron

Much love…and lots of IRON.
