In this episode, I have the privilege of introducing you to my friend and fellow Evolutionary Business Council member, Rodney Flowers.
After a traumatic high school football injury, Rodney was paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. Despite a challenging recovery process over 18 years to regain his ability to walk, Rodney is all about making a positive impact on the world.
Today, Rodney is an internationally respected speaker, thought leader, and 3-time bestselling author who helps others overcome life’s challenges to maximize success.
Rodney offers us nine incredible “fun nuggets” in our discussion all about resilience, including the idea that “Playing the game, however you play it, is a privilege.”
Here are the fun nuggets from the interview:
#1: Decide on what you want; then focus on it.
#2: Ignite the small accomplishments (chunk it down).
#3: The end game is not as important as the journey.
#4: Excitement itself is a celebration.
#5: Seek out life's challenges.
