Diverse and Impactful, With Steven Benedict

Play

During the month of August the Worth Listening theme is Giving. A lot of conversations in the financial world focus around how to make more, investment more, and save more. Giving is an often overlooked but important piece of the pie.

Today I’m excited to have professional track and field athlete, entrepreneur & philanthropist Steven Benedict here to share his Money Memoir with us. 

As a professional track and field athlete and Olympic Trials Qualifier, Steven Benedict has run in some of the world's most prestigious events. In addition to the Adidas Classic Diamond League and US Nationals, he ran for Nike for 2 years and was A Penn Relays Champion. Featured in 50 national and international magazines such as Train, ESPN Magazine, Mens Fitness, Mens Health and Fitness RX, Steven offers advice and motivation to elite and up and coming athletes alike. Beyond the track, he is the founder of “Fostering Success”  a non-profit organization that pairs Professional Athletes with Foster Kids and is a powerful motivational speaker and author. 

These accomplishments were not what was expected based on his early years. From abandonment to abuse, family deceptions, untimely deaths, drugs, and alcohol, Steven was confronted with more obstacles before the age of 28 than the majority of people face in a lifetime. Despite the hardships, Steven applied what he learned on the track to remain focused on the finish line. His rules for running the race translate to almost every industry, person, and circumstance and his story is a reminder to all who hear it that so long as you still have breath in your lungs, your race can still be won. 

Today Steven will share with us more about his personal experiences and how he focuses on giving back now. 

In This Episode We Discuss:

  • The second chance he was given by his adoptive parents
  • The impact that others made on his life as he was growing up 
  • The difference between giving and investing
  • How he diversifies his income streams as a professional athlete 
  • The importance of understanding that giving doesn’t have to be financial
  • How he’s running his nonprofit different than many others

RMP 130 - Competition vs. Comparison with Steven Benedict

Play
Read more

Steven Benedict has mastered the champion mindset, developed during his time as a world class track and field athlete. The champion takes every experience and uses it for greater knowledge and growth. Healthy competition is inherently masculine. It’s shadow, comparison, leads to suffering. Listen in to learn how to walk this fine line with integrity. We also cover why we are our own biggest critics, how to have tough conversations, and why we need to take responsibility for the world around us. 

Show Notes:

  • Why we can take responsibility even if we didn’t directly contribute to the problem
  • “Experiences in life are nothing more than another day of training to become a champion” - Steven Benedict
  • How is this experience making me better?
  • Why we are our own biggest critics
  • Why suppression is not a long term strategy for dealing with pain
  • How to navigate between self responsibility and asking for help
  • Every morning, we start with a clean slate
  • The difference between comparing and competing
  • How to use your voice with integrity and honor
  • Why we shouldn’t be afraid of tough conversations, especially around race and other charged topics.

From Foster Child to Olympic Hopeful, Steven Benedict

As a professional track and field athlete and Olympic Trials Qualifier, Steven Benedict has run in some of the world's most prestigious events. In addition to the Adidas Classic Diamond League and US Nationals, he spent two years running for Nike and was a Penn Relays Champion. Featured in 50 national and international magazines, such as Train, ESPN Magazine, Men's Fitness, Men's Health, and Fitness RX, Steven has expertise and contributions that extend far beyond the track.  But his story is that of a boy overcoming incredible odds to, not only compete on such a high level, but to just be alive.

Over the course of his first 8 years, Steven was moved between homes and motels with little certainty of what the next day would bring. At age 8, he and his brother were adopted by an incredible couple, who possessed traits of joy, humility, sacrifice and unconditional love. The time with these parents would be short lived, however, as both his mom and dad suffered untimely deaths within a few years of each other. The pain of these losses nearly ended Steven’s professional career but, once again, Steven defied the odds and continues to overcome his 10,000 "No"s.   

SHOW NOTES: 

Going back and forth between foster care and his biological mother’s arms at 4 months old, (4:35). “He saw fit to lay his hands on us and beat us when we were young. I was hospitalized.”, (6:15). Being forced out of childhood and into a father-figure role to take care of his brother, (6:35). “I felt that there was more stability for us going into foster care even though stability for us at that point was just to have a roof over our head, a warm bed to sleep in and a hot meal to eat.”, (7:51). Learning how observant of a person he was in foster home, (10:42). “My brother thought that was our permanent home and he was angry at my adopted parents for taking them away, thinking he was taken away from his family now.”, (11:55). Getting involved into sports, music and art with his adopted mother, (14:10). Joining track and field at summer camp when he was 9 and continued into high school, (15:20). “There’s always going to be somebody better and there’s always going to be somebody that has a little more natural talent, but I think where I make up for that is my work ethic.”, (18:45). Wondering a bunch of questions about his past, (21:21). “I had bottled up, unresolved problems from my past and that kind of overflowed in high school. I had to go see somebody to talk to about getting into fights and being hot-tempered.”, (22:15). Finding out his biological father was incarcerated and hung himself in jail, (24:15). “I took a whole year to take toll of who I was, who I was becoming and really clear up a bunch of stuff on the inside I was working through.”, (28:48). “We get angry over the smallest things, and then we let them build and accumulate into these mountains and we forget why were originally angry.”, (30:20). “I think we all evolve. If not, we’re just being stagnant, and that is one of the main things about humans is that if you’re not evolving, you’re just existing.”, (33:03). Tearing his hamstring while heading to Olympic trials in 2008 at the same time losing his parents, (35:27). “I feel like I’ve tackled all of these things so early that it has become the story. It’s not the story of just all the things I’ve come through. I’m not looking for it to be a crutch. It is more of a catalyst to me.”, (42:45). Engaging in track and field at the age of 35, (47:10). “I feel like for the first time, an actual coach is listening to the athlete and listening to me.”, (48:20). Believing in the importance of sleep, (52:21). “You have to do the legwork. You have to make a name for yourself. You have to be a brand on your own and you have to treat yourself as a business.”, (57:45). Aspiring to build a home for foster kids impacted by sports, (1:00:45). “You have to be able to accept the ‘No’, but you also have to be able to give a ‘No.’”, (1:04:15).

Have you considered the question: Do we succeed because of privilege or adversity? 

Leadership can seem to be about winning, but in truth it’s about so much more…It’s about training, mental, emotional prep. It’s about mindset, it’s also about pacing and supporting the team that you are part of… So how can you possibly balance all these things and win? Particularly when the odds are stacked against you? 

Well stay tuned because you are about to find out… 


George Sheehan wrote, “Why race? The need to be tested, perhaps; the need to take risks; and the chance to be number one.

Our Guest today has encountered every reason to NOT race. From abandonment, to abuse, family deceptions, untimely deaths, drugs and alcohol.
