When I first started this podcast, I knew I had to have Mike Lee on to share his incredible story, his inspiring journey and most importantly, his killer mindset with all of you.

Mike is a professional boxer who is currently undefeated and ranked 3rd in the World Boxing Organization (WBO). He has been an athlete his whole life and a professional boxer for 6 years, starting his career right out of college. Life hasn’t always been easy for Mike — in fact, pain has been his constant companion in the past few years, the result of a rare autoimmune condition.

Through his greatest trials and times of immense suffering, Mike persevered and rose above his situation to get where he is today—all thanks to his attitude and mindset. Mike’s journey of pain and healing is truly astounding, and he is a testament to the power of the human spirit and will. Mike is an amazing soul and I am so excited for you to listen to this episode.

 

IN THIS EPISODE WE TALK ABOUT:

  • Who Mike is and how he got started in boxing
  • His career path from finance to boxing, and his fascination with these two very different areas
  • The lessons Mike has learned from finance and boxing
  • Mike’s thoughts and beliefs about visualization and mindset
  • The importance of breathing and some breathing techniques to deal with difficult moments
  • Mike’s battle with an autoimmune disease, ankylosing spondylitis, and his healing journey
  • Why it’s important not to take things too seriously
  • Plus much more…
