Blog: Living It

One of my best friends on the planet earth is Tony Robbins. I’m also his trainer.  Funny thing is that I listened to his Personal Power audio program when I was 13 years old.  At the time, my greatest desire was to be the best baseball player that I could be so I can play in the PONY League World Series.  Although I practiced baseball like a madman I was not improving until I added the mental conditioning aspect.  In one season, I went from dud to stud, from zero to hero, from…ok…I’m done. Any way, I made the all-star team and I am forever grateful for his guidance then and now.  It was a true honor being on his podcast.  There is a ton of information in this one check out the highlights below.
