James Robert Kennedy; better known as Radio. For a man given so many obstacles in life he seems to have found a key ingredient many of us lack. He, as well as Coach Jones, find what truly matters in life and dedicate every ounce of their being towards it. With this I ask you to look deep down and determine what matters the most in your life. Ask yourself what you can change to align yourself with these guiding principles to reach new heights.
Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments regarding the many other lessons found throughout Radio as there are many!
"Goals should never be easy. They should force you to work even if they are uncomfortable at the time." -Michael Phelps
If you have set goals and have not seen progress it means you aren't giving yourself enough credit or you aren't truly pushing yourself. Either way now is an opportunity for you to make the change and push yourself forward.

Sunday is back! This week I would love for you to check out @jordanharbinger interviewing Navy Seal @jockowillink. https://open.spotify.com/episode/2iQlcg5lw67sp4EFSh21Tz?si=gw3WiPBkQS-AMf7bed9LpA
Inside this interview the question "why should I listen to these podcasts and videos every Sunday?" is answered wonderfully. Jocko noticed the trend that every year we look back and say we knew nothing before and know everything now. Stop saying we know everything and focus on opening your mind to learn something new.

Last heavy pull before the meet.
Next week we get to try to send it.
Will pray that hopefully everything comes together on the platform. 🙌🏿
Wishing squats fall into place.
I have a slightly bigger cut to do this meet week ~ 7 lbs to drop. Will tackle that throughout the week.
One day one step at a time.
"We face countless obstacles in our lives, but those obstacles aren't nearly as important as how we respond to them." - @emanualmurry
These words of wisdom come from the founder of Cultivation, a brand focused on cultivating the talents of youths living inside of inner cities who are not traditionally given the opportunity to thrive. As my friend and brother stresses, keep overcoming and keep pushing forward.
