133: The Fighter’s Mindset | Chris Romulo

Every single one of has fallen a time or two in life. And, everyone of us knows a man who has failed to get back up from that fall. It’s not an easy thing to overcome the wounds of failure, but if we want to thrive, it’s a requirement.

My guest today, Champion Muay Thai Fighter Chris Romulo, joins me to talk about finding the fight in us, the difference between ego and confidence, living by the mantra, “Fall seven times, stand up eight,” and how to develop the fighter’s mindset.

The Iron Council

Gentlemen, just a quick break to tell you about our exclusive brotherhood, The Iron Council. This is one of my favorite times during the Iron Council and one of the most impactful for the brothers inside.

Every quarter each of us establishes a new Battle Plan which is a system and process we’ve created for identifiying critical objectives in your life, establishing checkpoints along the way, and developing tactics that will ensure you meet your objectives.

There’s a planning tool we use to help you do all that, a tracker that keeps you on pace, and, of course, you’ll have the accountability from the 340 men inside to keep you on track.

If you are ready to take your life to the next level, you’re going to have to do something different. We’re going to help you identify what that is and hold your feet to the fire over the next 90 days to ensure you accomplish big things.

This is the perfect time to join us. You can do that at
