When a Tough Guy Cries

When a Tough Guy Cries

using your fighting spirit to push through outside the ring and off the field

Kenn shares his thoughts on using your fighting spirit to push through outside the ring and off the field.  

Conversation with Dr. Stacy (podcast host of "Being the Dot in White Spaces")

Motivation from Rocky Balboa 




“In a bad place”

The focus is for the athlete.  A young man between 25-35 that is a mix martial artist.  Is extreme (purposeful)  in his eating habits, dieting, exercise, training.  Is poor.  May not have a “good job”.  Is banking on a career as a fighter to get out of his situation.  Relationships are all gym based.  Probably smokes weed.  Is feeling depressed and fears failing.


What would you say if he was listening?


What would you recommend for this guy?

What should he do short term?

How can he help himself?

What would you say to his friends?

Is there a resource for this group of people? 


If you are thinking that ending your life will stop the pain, you are wrong.


If you think you won’t be missed or the world is better off without you, you are wrong.


Everything we go through in this life is temporary— Especially tough times.
