How to Transcend The Characteristics That Shaped Us As Kids with Russ Yeager


We’ve all been there. You’ll hear people talking about you. You’ll even hear them not talking about you, but you still feel it. You realize that beneath all your layers, what you really fear is the childhood label you still carry with you. 

We are all unique and special, but are crushed to find that our uniqueness is used to shame us, like being too short, too tall, too fat, too thin, too tan, too white, the way we dress, the way we talk–anything–just about anything can be used against us, which isn’t supposed to be. So how can we peel that label off and move towards transformation?

In this episode, Daniel sits with Physique Transformation Expert and one of today’s top international fitness coaches, Russ Yeager. Daniel and Russ talk about how we carry the labels imposed on us as kids to adulthood and what we can do to shift that narrative to our benefit. They also talk about how to keep positive habits consistent, how to view failures and leverage them, and how being cool and relaxed can affect our outcomes.

And remember… whoever has defined you could not have known your true beauty. You are uniquely you and you should see that for yourself.  

“Passion and persistence make a vision a reality. Don't quit!” -Russ Yeager
