How many of our pains stem from expecting life to run smoothly? Our guest, Abel Gonzalez, is hyper dedicated to shifting men’s mindsets into viewing mistakes and roadbumps as invaluable growth catalysts. As a 6 time competitor on American Ninja Warrior, he has proven practical tactics and soulful outlooks that are sure to excite & ignite. We also cover topics such as feeling emotions FULLY, practicing methods of active meditation, and awakening the warrior within.
