People often ask me, “Who inspires you? Who do you look up to?” One immediate answer is Kyle Maynard.
I’ve been blessed to spend time with Kyle, who encourages you — in the most powerful, unspoken of ways — to do more, be more, and help more.
How do you compete in wrestling or MMA without arms or legs? How on earth do you climb Kilimanjaro on, not your hands and knees, your elbows and knees? How do you face the challenges no one thinks you can?
Life can be overwhelming. Hope can be lost. Whether you’re facing a little self-doubt, an extended depression, or the darkest of thoughts, I suggest you watch the above video.
Thank you to BJJ Caveman for reminding me to put this up. Damn, it’s powerful stuff.
Good luck, everyone, with whatever battles you’re fighting inside or outside of you.
You are not alone.
