I've consistently sough out experiences which made me tougher:

- at age 15 I did a three day fast in the wilderness and a vision quest - SOLO
- I spent weeks learning how to free dive down to 100 feet with no oxygen
- I trained years of combat sports
- I lift heavy things daily
But guess what - I was bullied in school. I was soft. I didn't know my size and had no strength.

Toughness and strength can be LEARNED.

And today at 42 I can withstand anything.
Its never too late to get tougher or stronger. Today's world demands it of you.

Physical toughness translates to mental and emotional toughness, if done correctly.

Today's world will run you over if you remain weak.

Get tough. Join up:
Even today I'm pushing myself to become tougher.

I DREADED public speaking. I've nearly barfed before a speech.

But I knew this was my future, so I just pushed myself out there.

Now I'm getting the hang of it.

We are all afraid at times. How you handle it sets you apart.
I'm a risk taker. Which means I've failed at times. And other times life just swooped in and kicked me in the ass.

An essential skill for anyone today is to Master the Art of the Comeback

That's what my speech was about at #21Con

That's what I have to share with you all.
