I Am Prepared To Lose…

I am prepared to lose. I am prepared for the pain and anguish that goes along with falling short. I am prepared to look back and have regrets. But, with that being said, I have never been more confident that I am going to win in my life. I have never been more ready to be locked into a cage with another Read more

IRON MICHAEL’S MIND: MINDSET TO BE A CHAMPION – LIST

“Champions believe in themselves even when nobody else will.” – Anonymous

We all know the basics; work hard and good things will happen. What I have learned over the last 12 years of competing at a high level both in college as a Division I wrestler and now a professional MMA fighter is absolutely invaluable. The competitor and overall man that the sports of wrestling and MMA have turned me into is one of the greatest blessings of my life. The lessons I have learned, the pain I have endured, the heartbreaks I have suffered and the absolute bliss I have encountered are all treasures that I keep near and dear to my heart. You see, most of the growth I have experienced is through things that would be universally considered by most as negative – immense pain, physical exhaustion, dehydration, lack of nourishment, lack of sleep because of lack of nourishment, missing out on Read more

IRON MICHAEL’S MIND: COMING BACK FROM A LOSS

Life is all about how you respond to setbacks and obstacles in your life.  How you bounce back from losses and bad performances will determine how much you achieve.  Life is a journey and its all about success, not perfection.  Your favorite world leaders, icons and movers and shakers throughout history have responded to setbacks as learning experiences and not let themselves get discouraged.  In the face of adversity, down in the valley, where most would lose hope, they found a way to make it out of the fog and into the light.  So can you, but its all about how you come back from a loss!

IRON MICHAEL’S MIND: Priming The Pump

Zig Ziglar, in my opinion is the single greatest symbol of leadership, excellence and integrity this world has ever seen.  There are hundreds of hours of resources that Ziglar has published and put out there for you and I to meditate on.  His audio and DVD series was given to me by my mentor Chris Patterson a few years ago and from the first minute of the first CD I felt myself growing dramatically.   I promise if you spend a few min a day, a couple hours a week, watching/ listening to/reading some of this man’s stuff, your life will be changed for the better.

Priming the pump is a metaphor for one of life’s greatest challenges: working hard enough, for long enough and enthusiastically enough so that you will achieve your goals.  I have found that it’s not that people don’t do the right things, it’s that they don’t do them for long enough.  Stay the course my friends…everything you have ever wanted to accomplish is right on the other side of hard work and perseverance.

IRON MICHAEL’S MIND: THE IMPORTANCE OF A MENTOR AND SELF EDUCATION

A few years ago, I met a man named Chris Patterson who is now my mentor and great friend.  My life has dramatically changed for the better since the first day we met.  Most of the content of this video including the importance of self education are principals he has instilled in me.  Find someone who is smarter than you, more motivated than you and works harder than you do and then try to emulate their every move.  That’s what I have done and I hope that one day I can make an impact like he has.

IRON MICHAEL’S MIND: Break The Chains of Self-Doubt

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” -Marianne Williamson
