Focus is a finite resource; where is yours being depleted? In this episode, Steve shares his interview with Lillian Garcia, a singer, songwriter, and former host of Monday Night Raw on her podcast, Chasing Glory. Steve gives a glimpse into the week leading up to the game that gave him the title “Superbowl Champion”, the advice that helped keep him grounded, and how it’s translated into his work as an entrepreneur. He and Lillian discuss focus, self-worth, and why dedication to mental training is as important as your physical health. Listen to Steve as he gets vulnerable about his struggle with mental health and explains why focus is the key to living a high-performance life.

“It’s not talent, it’s not work ethic, it really comes down to focus.”

-Steve Weatherford
