Cool post from when I was asked to come speak to the @lakers.
Asked to share my success perspectives and why I have the rep I have.
I’m a nice guy. Some say the nicest they’ve ever met - which I reject and still give that crown to my friend Tom Hanks 😊
But I always play angry and I always play to fucking kill.
I take my business extremely serious and I’m willing outwork all competition to get the job done.
That said, I always keep my hard times & struggles of my past in the forefront of my mind.
Keeps me hungry, humble and grateful for any opportunity I can create - that either leads to success or failure.
Good chat w/ the team, thanks for having me and nice to see my words “lock” into a few of your DNAs.
Thanks to my friends at @makaveli_motivation for the post.
Cool Univ of Miami football throwback 🏈
1993 Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.
Me and my teammate and workout buddy, Bruce Eberst - big dude wearing the 🧢 lid.
We rolled into New Orleans undefeated and the #1 team in the country - playing the #2 team, Univ of Alabama for the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP.
We lost 34-13.
Tough loss. Learned a lot.
I was banged up most of my college career (shoulder reconstruction, three knee surgeries and blew my back out with two total ruptures of my discs) but man these years were formidable and defining.
Made some good friends and we took pride in being the hardest workers in the country.
Thanks to my guy and our Heisman Trophy winner, @ginotorretta13 for posting this☝🏾one.
What a long, winding road life can be.

I’ve always wondered who’s the most bad ass in the land.
Or my TITANS.
The Ninja course?
Or MT OLYMPUS.
It’s a no-contest for me, because it’s my TITANS all the way.
Maaaaaybe one day we’ll find out.
But right now, I’m looking for men and women of all athletic backgrounds and ages to join me.
If you THINK you have what it takes to become a TITAN, then hit my link up☝🏾top!
I’ll see you in the arena, my friends.
Was a cool surprise when I found out The Wall Street Journal Magazine wanted to focus their story on my hands - a career first.
My two hand philosophy.
It’s my ideology that we can can’t control everything, but we can always control our effort and the hard work we’re willing to put in with our own two hands.
My paws🖐🏾🖐🏾are scarred, broken knuckles and calloused all from football, wild pro wrestling matches, dumb fights🤦🏽♂️ and hitting the iron daily.
But my hands also serve as my two anchoring roadmaps of my life’s journey - successes, failures, protection, love and everything in between.
Thanks @wsjmag for the surprising and very cool inroad you took to go deeper to understand what’s behind these ol’ f*cked up callouses.
Fun shoot. Thanks again.
Wow I was just nominated for FIVE People’s Choice Awards.
I think 🤔 it’s a new personal record.
Always shake my head and smile at stuff like this, as my focus is always about putting in the work to deliver for the people.
Never expect it, but if it happens I also never take it for granted cos it’s pretty damn cool 😎✊🏾
Thank you everyone!!
I never post about my friend.
Personal thing, but I prefer to keep our memories and bond private and quiet.
But something about today compelled me as a moving reminder of how fragile life is for all of us.
It’s Paul’s birthday and rightfully so, his legacy celebrated around the world.
Our friendship was bonded over our daughters, Meadow & Simone and the pride and protection we took being their fathers.
And recently, I got a scare when I almost lost another friend on the road.
All this stuff got me thinking about how beautiful, yet wildly unpredictable life is.
We never know what’s around the corner, so we gotta live as greatly as we can in the honor of our loved ones and ancestors who are no longer with us.
Manuia le aso fanau, my friend.
