Success, Humility and Healing w/Javier "Chicharito" Hernández EP 1435

Aspire To Your Highest Potential & Learn To Embrace The Journey

Over the course of Javier Hernandez’s 16-year career, he has gone from tabloid superstar in his native Mexico, appearing in three World Cups for El Tri, becoming Mexico’s all-time leading scorer to date, and playing for the likes of Manchester United and Real Madrid to presently, being the face of the best team in the MLS, the Los Angeles Galaxy. Javier is a representation of a new generation of athletes who are using their voice and abilities outside the field to speak about issues that matter, creating opportunities for others, and disrupting the status quo. Javier is much more than an athlete, he is an entrepreneur, a father, philanthropist, and mental health advocate. He is a positive and additive force in the sports, gaming and entertainment industry.
