Listen to the interview here:
Who would have thought you can go from sleeping on a park bench, to becoming a world renowned modern martial artist, super successful entrepreneur, coaching special force military operators and an author? Rodney King did and he tells his story on this episode of the How to Quit Working Show.
Martial arts taught me to be resilient, to embrace my fears, to develop laser-like focus, and to never give up. Having developed those qualities (I had to!), I went back to school, put myself through college, and currently completing my Ph.D in Embodied Leadership. Over the years, I have taught special-force military operators and law enforcement officers how to develop an unstoppable mind needed for success and how to survive when all else fails on the battlefield, or on the city street.
You see, I did wake up from that nightmare. What I learned on the mat as a martial artist, helped me not only take on those tough, mean streets of Johannesburg, but it empowered me to take on life, full throttle, and to succeed. I started martial arts first as a way to survive, and then as a method to achieve personal mastery. If I hadn’t started training in karate and boxing, I wouldn’t be coaching business leaders, entrepreneurs, and success-minded people in the very same inner game tools I had developed to become a success in my own life. The Full Contact Living Workshop is inspired both by my personal story, and the inner game lessons I learned.
