#FreeLifeFridays Ep7 – Roy Firestone and Lessons on Greatness

“Forget the limo” and listen in to this week’s #FreeLifeFridays episode as we speak to Roy Firestone, a seven-time Emmy Award-winning journalist, performer, and inspirational speaker. Roy has interviewed more than 5,000 athletes and high-performing individuals in his career, and shares his wisdom with us about what it means to have the greatness gene, why gratitude is better than regret, and why real humility can take you a long way in life.

He even shares an EXCLUSIVE Kobe Bryant story with us – you’re not going to want to miss this!

Here are your BMpowered takeaways:

1. Look at good and bad as part of the journey. Ultimately it’s the journey that matters most.

2. Regret is a wasted emotion. Gratitude is a way more powerful emotion.

3. Competition can be toxic. The key is to focus on improving yourself every single day.

4. To be great, you must have passion, be committed, work hard, and never stop improving yourself.

5. And in the words of John Wooden, “Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.”
