I break down a clip from a BEAST of a song that used to get me in killer mode when I was training for the NFL. Check it out.

I've made a ton of mistakes and even repeated the same costly mistakes. I'm sure we all have. But what separates the good from the great is how well they actually LEARN and profit from these mistakes and not just NOT repeat them....but use the lessons to make GAINS in other areas as well. In this episode, I take you up close and personal into my life and show you the almost fatal mistakes I made and how I've learned from them. I'm giving you KEYS....you don't have to make the mistake to learn from it. It's like going to a cookout...you can eat the BBQ without even cooking. (or paying lol)

A good way to know how soft and mentally weak someone is.....just watch how they deal with the truth. If you want to be elite and consistently dominate them, you must get comfortable with reality and learn to use it and profit from it instead of run from it and defend yourself from it.
