As men, we’ve all had struggles and adversity. What separates the triumphant from those that get lost in the despair is an ability to overcome pain and suffering. My guest today, former Division 1, All-American wrestler, Jim Harshaw teaches us how we can do just that and achieve greatness in the process.
For those of you who have been listening to the show for any amount of time, you know that I love sports.
I played football, baseball, and I wrestled in high school and, although, I did not achieve nearly the same level of success as my guest today and some of the other guest that I’ve had on, I have learned a ton from competitive sports about how to succeed in life.
Jim Harshaw and I are going to talk all about that today.
