Once a wrestler always a wrestler. Jim Harshaw Jr. is a professional speaker, consultant, and a former Division 1 All-American wrestler. He helps pro athletes, CEOs and coaches to focus on the actions they need to be taking every day in order to reach their goals. He shares with them the power of the process and the power of failure. He has received accolades about his TEDx talk, Why I Teach my Children to Fail and has created a framework everyone can follow to find their own success. He and Drew share their beliefs on which mindset shifts need to occur while striving to be the best and how wrestling is an ideal physical workout.

Jason MacKenzie has overcome a hardship that most of us would think impossible to overcome. His human reaction to a devastating event left him lost in a haze of guilt, shame and alcoholism. He used physical fitness as a type of retribution for his dirty deeds and his wife’s suicide as the rationale for letting himself fall apart. It wasn’t until he embraced his vulnerable side that he was able to break free of his addiction and start his spiritual journey. His upcoming world-changing book is for Dads who need to cultivate vulnerability in their lives.

 

Key Takeaways:

[7:19] Jason dealt with the inconsolable mental anguish which was his late wife’s bipolar disorder.
