“What is your recipe for reaching the pinnacle”.
It is important to me that you understand that I have always seen it as a duty and responsibility to share my process and formula in hopes of inspiring others to reach their own personal pinnacles. Allow me please to do the same for you here as I paint the picture and reveal the truth within the uniqueness of what I do and how I do it. I will make it all make sense so roll with me for just a minute.
When a fighter wants to gain an advantage, he drops down to a lower weight class. This is exactly the move Bernard Hopkins made when he moved from Cruiserweight to Middleweight where he relished having the longest reign as the Middleweight Champion. To this day, Hopkins possesses the all-time Middleweight defense record.
When an average NY Wall Street broker moves off of Wall Street and enters another firm, he becomes Gordon Gekko aka The Wolf Of Wall Street.
When a Body Builder like Lou Ferrigno decides to come into the game and take over, veterans like Arnold Schwarzenegger can make the conscious decision to move parallel, truly spread their wings and achieve the glorification they deserve as a Hollywood actor, Governor & global figure and become something even greater.
When talk show host Colin Cowherd is overshadowed by ESPN talk show First Take, he makes the calculated move to another network, becomes the decorated draw to that network, gets paid 7 figures and is awarded a castle. This career move played in his favor big time.
When I was in the medical field, I was part of an elite surgical team that included some of the world’s best Orthopedic Surgeons, Neurologists & Endocrinologists. Putting in over 10 years of surgical experience day in and day out, outweighed any college course or PT certification that anyone could ever acquire. In the surgical world, the Doctor is the king of the castle. The repercussion for me was that my natural abilities, passions and true knowledge of the human body were over shadowed by routine and by those in position of authority.
So I made the conscious decision to drop down a weight class and become an elite Physiologist/ Athletic Trainer/Sports Performance Specialist, Coach, Author and Sports Enthusiast & Analyst. Dropping down a weight class opened doors and presented opportunities for me to train 15 World Champion Boxers, 6 Olympians (Track & Field and Boxers) with a collection of 6 medals, NFL teams searching for the competitive edge and to be able to author two books with another on the way.
Dropping a weight class gave me many advantages over the rest of the field. I fought at a much higher class than the rest of the field. This has allowed my knowledge and experience not to be overshadowed and position me as the top "doctor" in a very congested field of practice.
The moral is to not stay where you are just among the pack. Drop down a weight class and become King of the jungle.
Guppies don't wear crowns. Only Champions do. Place yourselves in your kingdom.
Just simply drop down a weight class and "Become".
