I can’t stop bragging about my man, Kyle Maynard. Kyle was born a congenital amputee. A rare condition caused him to never fully develop arms and legs in the womb. But before you jump to conclusions, let me brag about this guy: He was a high school wrestling champ—whooping other kids with full abilities—and went on to win weight lifting competitions, fight MMA, and even climb Mount Kilimanjaro!

“Incapable” was never in his vocabulary. And I hope his mental strength will stick with you and remind you that you can go further than you thought you could.

If you enjoyed listening to this interview, there is a whole more where that came from. I break things down even further in my new book and audiobook, Rise and Grind.
