“I always struggled with this idea that some people are driven and some people aren’t. We’ve all got drive: It may be dormant, and we’re looking for that thing to help trigger it, but when it happens, we can go from zero to hero in a moment.” –Kevin Miller
Our guest today excels in so many fields: He’s a former pro athlete, podcast host, published author, and father of nine kids. He’s also a respected personal development guide who helps people elevate their experiences and improve the ways that they show up for others.
