Today, I talk with long-distance running expert Denny "Diz" Krahe. Alright, I admit... By this point, you probably know that running isn't necessarily my expertise... However, I've picked up some excellent advice from Diz that I'm definitely putting into practice for when I lace up my shoes for my next run. Running long distances takes a hell of a mindset to push yourself to keep going. If you're listening to our convo today, and you're a runner, you're in for a treat. If you're thinking about picking up some running shoes to take this sport seriously, let Denny be the one to convince you to start the race!


Some Questions I Ask:

  • What inspired you to start running?
  • As a coach/trainer, what are some things that your audience struggles with?
  • How would you coach an athlete who's antsy, or lacks patience?
  • How do you define "mental toughness"? And also, the lack of (it)?
  • Do you have advice for someone who's interested in becoming a runner?
  • What are some of the most impactful books you've read?

Today I share with you my own G Code. Check it out, and create you own. Let's go.

Where there's an obstacle, there's a way. Never look at your problems as challenges unable to resolve. Be thankful for your problems, as they're placed upon you to learn from. Thank God for your challenges!

In this episode, I cover a common issue within today's average athlete. Are you familiar with those cliché phrases tossed around by your teammates? If you've heard a specific friend of yours say something like, "gotta get that daily workout in bro" or, "I drink a gallon of water a day, easy"... If this rings a bell, be aware of the talk next time you hear it. Challenge your teammate, see if he/she really lives up to their words. Today, I review three prominent and specific sayings; with examples of staying true to it, as opposed to being "all-talk". If you feel like you can relate to this episode, maybe it's time to work on that authenticity. Let's grow!


Key Points:

  • Reviewing the BEAR results matrix
  • 3 common cliché phrases among athletes
  • Living up to your words, versus being "all-talk"

Initially, I developed an entirely new episode to share with ya'll, but I realized that it just wasn't enough... At times I find myself more in focus with my hustle than my relationship as a husband.

What's a challenge you can create for yourself that would scare you today? What's a way you can test your resolve under pressure?

Don't be afraid of looking weak...Instead, be afraid of BEING weak by ignoring challenges and settling low goals.

Get Ya Mind Right.

Jun 10, 2016

It's important to realize that life will test you. Obstacles will drop right in front of you to prevent you from reaching your goals and dreams... When that day comes, what will you do? Your top college pick denies your application because you "aren't good enough". Your dream-job rejects your interview, and say that you "need better experience". Your significant other wants a break-up because they feel like "you aren't the one" for them... Whether it be your education, career, or relationship, you need to figure out how to power through the tough parts. Taking responsibility of your current situation, using my "Owning Technique" will teach you to stand your ground, and commit to everlasting growth! Ready to take it up a notch? I thought you would be. Let's go!

Key Points:

  • Using a series of questions for self-reflection
  • Taking FULL responsibility of your actions to accept your current situation
  • The "Owning Technique"

A conversation with Trinidad & Tobago's boxing ambassador and middleweight champion, Daniel Hayes, is my next step to getting nicer with the hands! Training as a boxer takes an incredible amount of endurance, agility, and mental strength (among many other skills of course). It's a whole other world, competing individually as opposed to team play. Daniel breaks down the beginning of his athletic career as he played for many team sports, with the reason for switching up his main focus, to become an absolute monster in the ring. Got your gloves handy? Listen up!

 

Some Questions I Ask:

  • Why'd you choose to become a boxing? How does it appeal to you?
  • How did you feel without picking up sports after college?
  • How do you stay motivated for long-term goals?
  • Are you calm/focused before your fights?
  • Do you have any pre-fight routines?
  • What is the key, to remain calm under pressure?
  • What were some specific mistakes of yours? How'd you learn from them?
  • What are your most critical daily habits?

 

How to get in touch with Daniel:

Gratitude is a word that's thrown out there a lot...But if you think it's "corny" or "positive thinking", then you're not doing it right.

Let's be real here... In order to outlast your opponent in whatever it is that you do, you must be better. It's common sense, ain't it? Anyone can compete just as well as you; but what separates you from your opponent, is the HUNGER within. It's that drive... That strength... That, killer instinct! Here's the truth. Everyone has that 'killer instinct' within them, just waiting to be unlocked. How you ask? That's why I'm here. Take notes and listen up. It takes practice to be unstoppable.

Key Points:

  • Knowing what prevents the instinct to become real
  • Understanding the power of belief
  • Preventing the weakness to outweigh our potential
  • 15 tips to bring out the best version of you
  • Why creating an alter-ego is the best move for you
