The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

This week Joe sits down with Jim Gregory a former Green Beret & Olympian (with an asterisk.) Jim didn’t always reach the ultimate goals he set for himself, but he always persisted with confidence and a positive attitude. The result is a life of incredible accomplishment. How can you grow from disappointment? What can you learn from failure? Does tough training in youth give you the foundation to withstand these trials? All these are questions Joe and Jim discuss. Learn what the asterisk next to Olympian means and the secret to a life without regrets.

Make pain your friend
Find opportunities for growth in disappointment
Take chances & throw yourself out there!
Get uncomfortable
Push as hard as you can
Don’t give up
