Being present in the moment can help us build the confidence we need to move forward. That happens by never forgetting to look back and appreciate where we’ve come from and what we’ve already done. This week’s guest is Dr. Greg Wells, a scientist, professor, podcaster, and author on peak human performance. He shares his story of overcoming a serious injury as a teenager and using that strength to propel him through future challenges later in life.

Success doesn’t come easy. It’s not something that can be built with talent alone. It takes hard work, consistency, and grit. It takes persevering past setbacks and recognizing the strength you already possess. By seeing how far you’ve come, you can better understand how far you can go.

What You’ll Learn:

  • Deconstruct large tasks to make them manageable
  • Understand that consistency over time leads to mastery
  • Build confidence by appreciating what you’ve already accomplished
  • Practice gratitude for a healthy mindset
  • Seek out challenges to overcome
