David Vobora

The Power of Pain to Transform Into Your Best Self

He was the NFL's official "Mr. Irrelevant" the season he got drafted.

He played for 5 years and faced injury after injury.

He got addicted to pain meds to get through each surgery and all the pain.

But once he got clean and retired from playing football, David Vobora knew he was just getting started.

If you’re a fan of Ellen, you saw him on the show the day after I was originally on.

He was sitting next to a quadruple amputee army veteran and they were telling Ellen about how awesome life is.

Pretty amazing considering neither one of them has had an easy life.

"There's turning points, but there's a lot more checkpoints."  

But that’s one thing I immediately loved about David when I met him.

He’s not afraid of pain.

He knows it’s one of his greatest teachers.

And he also knows it doesn’t have to control him.

When he had the inspiration to start training injured veterans at his elite fitness gym, he didn’t know how to do it.

What he did know is that there are possibilities for everyone to live a healthy, happy life, and he wanted to support that effort in the best way he knew how.

What he has created since is extraordinary, and I was so inspired talking to David and learning from his perspective.

This is a powerful conversation I’ve been really excited to share with you in Episode 491.

"You preach from your pain."
