In this episode, I am joined by Derrick Johnson, an army veteran, life coach, and trainer, who shares his mission of helping others tap into their true potential. Derrick discusses his upbringing and how he used fitness as an outlet for his pain as a bullied and shy child. I share my own journey of using fitness and faith to break free from family patterns of addiction and anger.

We highlight the importance of pushing ourselves physically and mentally to achieve new heights and experience confidence and satisfaction. We discuss the obstacles of pride and ego that hinder individuals from being honest with themselves and acknowledging their shortcomings. Setting high standards and living by them is crucial, as how we do one thing is how we do everything.

I encourage listeners to have specific and measurable goals and hold themselves accountable. Seeking external resources and guidance can also help elevate productivity and efficiency. We discuss the concept of creating a clear vision of what we want by listing out things we don't want. Starting with the body and incorporating physical activity into a morning routine can clear the mind and generate ideas.

Stress management is essential, along with quickly returning to a calm and confident state after being thrown off. We explore the correlation between mental and physical health and how pride and ego can limit beliefs. I challenge listeners to stop allowing others to control their reactions and instead choose a different response. Identifying repetitive patterns and no longer giving expected reactions can lead to personal growth.

We delve into the topic of success in relationships and friendships, emphasizing the importance of aligning visions to avoid conflicts. Celebrating each other's accomplishments and surrounding ourselves with supportive individuals is key. Success can sometimes make others uncomfortable, so it's important to focus on personal achievements and choose uplifting people who will support us.

Lastly, we discuss how success can impact friendships and relationships. Evaluating the history and dynamic of a relationship is essential to determine if it's positive or negative. I share an example of someone who asked for help but then ghosted when assistance was offered. Prioritizing our own well-being and mental health is crucial.

We wrap up by recommending the book "Outwitting the Devil" by Napoleon Hill to explore intentional living.
