The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Bruce Babashan, former senior-level corporate executive turned professional boxing trainer, says, “Grit, to us, is time and pressure. Will you put in the time, will you completely devote yourself long enough to find out whether or not you can be successful at something.”

Today, Yancy and Jarod talk with Bruce about finding your long range goal and embracing the pain and grit to reach what you see as excellence in your life. In this episode, you’ll learn:

- Redefining what success looks like for you
- Finding a goal to devote yourself to
- The ability to delay gratification
- The grit advantage. How grit gets you to that level of excellence that talent and practice alone can’t

Coach Bruce Babashan is a “master storyteller” who teaches others his knowledge based on the concept of GRIT and self-leadership.
