My Top 3 Fears, Playing for the Tie, & MUST-DO Exercises Right Now

Buckle up your boot-straps my friends. Are you ready to get your mind right today? I recorded this episode just 2-days ago after an epic workout to get my own mind right. As a matter of fact, I kept my smelly clothes on, my UA headband on, my MyZone belt on, and absolutely loved fielding not one, not two, not five, but NINE questions from our fire-breathing dragon friends from around the globe. YESSS!!

Today we are talking about my top movements/exercises, top fears, productivity routines, eating habits, leadership, mental toughness, not settling for the tie, and how to win the battle between the ears right now. I guarantee there is something in this episode for you, your family, and friends so please share it with them.

Buckle-up and enjoy the show. The energy was flowing and I hope what I share today is of great VALUE to help you win the day. Go get after it!
