AS27: Fighting The Good Fight w/Michael Chandler

 

Life is a fight and we are all fighting different types of battles every day, whether you can see them or not. Today, Anthony has the pleasure of speaking with someone who has been fighting that fight quite literally. Michael Chandler went from college wrestling to fighting for and becoming a 3-time MMA world champion. Michael lost his most recent fight and is currently going through the process of picking himself up after that loss. Throughout life, we will all have our hands raised in victory and suffer the pain of defeat. What we will come to realize is that it doesn’t really matter which one happens, as long as you have outperformed your previous self. Those losses are just learning experiences that you can grow from. Remember, failure is an event, not a person.

In this episode, we talk about…

  • Michael’s professional bio
