Pain and Pleasure

I have begun to reread Tony Robbins’s classic book Awaken the Giant Within, and one principle/point sticks out the most.

Some famous people who had or have a great killer instinct are Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Roger Clemens, Mike Tyson, and now Conor Mcgregor. Continue reading The Importance of a Killer Instinct and How to Get it
