[coolcastplayer id="75"]

Tom Nardone is an example of pursuing the American Dream of financial freedom. At age 19, he started working for the Post Office as a mailman. It didn’t take him long to realize that the security entrapment of “good job” is not a lot different from a 30 year jail sentence. “You feel trapped, and your income is limited.” Realizing his “good government job” was not going to make his dreams of being financially free come true, Tom took some real estate investing courses and bought his first house in 1983 at just 23 years old. Shortly thereafter he recognized a valuable asset available to him that his real estate investor competition did not have. Walking around on mail runs gave him the advantage of finding prime real estate opportunities very quickly.

Chris Romulo is a Queens, New York native who always yearned for growth. In his early twenties, he transformed himself from a street kid into a Muay Thai Champion with over 40 fights and 5 titles under his belt. Today, he’s a coach at his gym CROM Physical Culture and mindset speaker to both youth and adults.

CLICK HERE for Chris' book, "Champions Uprising"

On today’s episode we discuss:

  • Chris’s tip on how he drives himself out of bed in the morning
  • How Chris overcame fear and self-doubt that he carried through childhood
  • When Chris realized Muy Thai and martial arts was going to be the path for his life
  • The importance of getting the right people on your “bus”
    • The crabs in a barrel metaphor
  • The importance of accepting other people's behavior for what it is and moving on to improve yourself
  • Applying the principles of May Thai fighting to your life
  • Chris’s Acronym: C.H.A.M.P.S
  • The power of pushing outside of your comfort zone
  • Having a champion mindset at home

Chris' Impact: Wants to know that he inspired someone to be better and that he can be a reminder for someone that life can be beautiful and they can pick themselves up and dust themselves off and keep fighting and start that champions uprising when they feel like they’re down and out.

Chris' nugget of wisdom

“You want to make sure you’re attracting other champions to you. Not being stuck with the people who aren’t moving you forward… you want to be with the people who are on the same mission as you”

“We’re all victims of happenstance. We react to what happens in our life. instead of saying, “let me take control, let me know that my mind and my mindset is going to be the most powerful tool I can use when things are going great and maybe when things maybe aren’t going so great”
