Frankie's devotion to family, friends, teammates and training shines as he discusses a career that led from underground fighting to an upcoming bout in Madison Square Garden. Frankie was The Spaniard’s inspiration to pursue the UFC, and he is the best possible first guest on ”A Fighter’s Mindset.” Where else will you hear two guys compare notes on both changing diapers and breaking bones around their eye sockets?

Today I bring you Andrea Waltz and Richard Fenton. Andrea and Richard- my first dual interview on Success Through Failure --  are the premier experts on overcoming failure, rejection, and fear of the word, ‘no.’ They believe that courage is the single most important virtue on which everything else in life is built. And that when people build their courage, anything is possible. They co-wrote the best-selling book titled “Go For No: Yes Is The Destination, No Is How You Get There.” Through the dialogue of the two main characters they have created an entertaining story that presents the key concepts essential to success in sales and anything else in life. They are living their dream of speaking and writing, traveling the country and delivering their message to tens of thousands of people and changing lives with their Go for No! message.

We believe in the message that Jim and his guests bring every episode for the Athlete On Fire Network!

Things don't always go according to plan...when the ceiling comes crashing down on you, it can be tough to find the drive to keep on plowing forward and sticking to the plan. When conditions are less than ideal, it's up to us to hunker down, toughen up, and make up the difference from within ourselves. Darrell recaps last weekend - Megan's triumphant Hartford Marathon run, the heinous weather nightmare that was Newport Marathon, and what its really all about.

"I get knocked down, but I get up again", as the popular hit 1997 "Tubthumping" by Chumbawamba goes. It could by Corey's anthem, given how many times he kept getting knocked down.

Corey Peterson knows what it means to endure. Having had to rebuild his life again and again, fitness and in particular, endurance and weight lifting have been his tools.

Cookie from Team SISU caught up with the resident of Utah recently and discussed the journey Corey took and what it took to get to where he is now.
