245: How to Filter Your Thoughts to Extract Strength from Struggle with Joel Green

By August 30, 2022February 3rd, 2023No Comments

If you’ve been proactive about working on yourself for a while, you can probably look back at some hard situations in your life and see how they served you.

Maybe you learned a lesson or healed a wound. Maybe it guided you toward something or even someone new.

Maybe it’s the thing that got you to work on yourself in the first place.

The harder part is actually being able to extract these lessons, or even just the strength of surviving, sooner.

Not everyone becomes stronger after struggle. Yeah For some people, the struggle shows them what they’re capable of, and it completely reroutes their life for the better. For others, it shows them what they can’t control and it completely reroutes their life, for the worse.

So what’s the difference?

How do we zoom out just enough to choose what’s in our highest good rather than what our humans attach to?

That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Joel Green. He is CEO of Pro Level Training and a former professional basketball player. After retiring from his career in basketball, he founded Pro Level Training (PLT), which has become a 7-figure company. He’s also a speaker and the National Director for Nike Sports Camps. And he was the face of Cheez-It crackers Celebrity Crunch Classic campaign, just showing his face on millions of boxes.
