#24: Bennie Fowler 

Thank you for being here! Most likely you’re listening to this one from home. This is an unprecedented time we are going through with the coronavirus pandemic. And I hope you are doing okay.  It’s impacting our everyday lives, local communities, and world. At the time of this recording on March 23rd, most of us are self quarantining and practicing social distancing or some of us are even mandated to by state order to stay home. I recorded this episode with Bennie on May 19th. 

Here’s some background info on Bennie Fowler. He is a six-year veteran of the NFL. He spent four years with the Broncos and was a member of the Super Bowl 50 championship team in 2016. Bennie holds the annual Bennie Fowler youth football camp in Detroit, Michigan, is an in-demand speaker trained through the NFL Speakers Bureau, and lives in Denver during the offseason.

We talk about his new book, Silver Spoon: The Imperfect Guide to Success. And also his thoughts on being present, the power of mindset, and as difficult as it may be to be bunkering down right now, this is also such an opportunity for us to do some of that difficult inner work, create healthy habits, and set goals. 

Topics we cover in this episode: 

  • Coronavirus & how it’s is affecting daily life
  • Tips on how to stay on track during the quarantine 
  • Bennie’s best selling book Silver Spoon: The Imperfect Guide to Success
  • Catching Peyton Manning’s last pass and his experience working with him
  • Mindfulness
  • Goal Setting
  • Importance of Routines
  • Mindset & Mental Toughness

Bennie shares stories and advice that will help you overcome what's holding you back. He also gives great tips on how to practice mindfulness. Something we could all use in these crazy and uncertain times we are experiencing. 

I hope you can take away some inspiration for whatever you’re up to, or just some practices you can employ to get through each day. 

Love you & we’re all gonna get through this and be okay :)
