Today’s guest, Jalen Ramsey, is known for being a talented, outspoken, and competitive NFL cornerback for the LA Rams. What he may not be as well known for is being an amazing “Girl Dad,” his deep faith in God, and his commitment to continual achievement and excellence in every aspect of his life. Jalen attributes his success to the thoughts that he chooses to dwell on. He chooses to think positively, believe in the power of yet, and always commit to doing more as a man, father, son, and professional. “Whether you think you can do it or whether you think you can’t do it, whichever one you feeding that energy to, that’s probably right. If you think you can do it, you can. If you think you cannot do it, you probably won’t.”
“Adversity is a part of who I am. It’s a way of life for me.” In today’s episode, Inky talks to an incredible husband, father, and professional athlete who is known to defy the odds, Isaiah Thomas. From being the last pick of the draft to becoming an NBA All-Star, Isaiah Thomas knows what it means to be in tough situations but not allow your circumstances as an excuse to quit. As you listen, be prepared to be challenged by one of the greatest athletes to ever walk the planet. You must run your race, keep pushing, and never give up.  
“Where we see people and where we meet people is not where they have always been.” This statement is true for so many individuals, such as today’s guest Andre Ward, retired professional middleweight and heavyweight boxer. Today, Andre Ward holds an undefeated boxing record in two weight classes! However, when he first started boxing at the age of 10, he was not very good at it. In reality, he started off as a baseball player, before evolving into  a boxing force to be reckoned with in his teenage years and beyond. Despite never experiencing a loss inside the ring, he admits to multiple losses outside the ring. As a husband and father, he knows the strain that the sport of boxing has had on his family but the unwavering support of his wife, mentors, and others close to him have allowed him to grow into the man that he is today. That support coupled with a mindset focused on his goals, dreams, and legacy has continued to lead him to even greater success.
  Have you ever experienced loss in your life such as the loss of a job or a broken relationship? In this week’s episode, Inky talks with Lane Kiffin, the Head Football Coach at The University of Mississippi. His coaching career is quite colorful, having coached at both the collegiate and NFL levels. In this podcast, Lane shares his journey filled with highs and lows and how he maneuvered through each of these experiences. In 2007, he became the youngest head coach in NFL history up until that point when he joined the Oakland Raiders. Since then, he has coached at several universities, and experienced some very public and embarrassing losses and even firings. Through it all he has learned to take the valuable lessons from each experience and apply them to his life moving forward.
“Make no mistake about it. I’m coming for everything 2020 took from me. No excuses, no sobbing, and definitely no blaming. I need to be better. The revolution has begun.”  -Cam Newton In this week’s episode, Inky has a candid conversation with NFL Superstar, Cam Newton about his quest for continual self improvement.  Despite what our circumstances are, many times we stand in our own way. We make excuses, absorb the negative thoughts of those around us, and stifle our own growth.  In this deep dialogue, Cam takes us on his own personal journey towards the development of self-love, self-awareness, and authenticity. Through life stories, lessons learned, and a little humor, Cam reminds us that we are a constant work in progress, we need to continually invest in ourselves, and we need to exercise the discipline of delayed gratification, all of which are beneficial for long term success.
“Life is about perspective. It’s not what you see. It’s how you see it. And what you see is what you get.” In this week’s episode, Inky is joined by husband, father, and legendary head basketball coach at North Carolina Central University, LeVelle Moton for a raw dialogue about life, motivation, and discipline. LeVelle understands that his perspective on life and the character that he has developed are direct results of the difficult life experiences he had growing as a young athlete in “the projects.” Through multiple moments of failure, defeat, and even loss, LeVelle has developed an internal motivation that drives him to have a disciplined approach to life. He now takes his role as a University basketball coach to impart these life perspectives to the young men he works with everyday. This episode is the truth! Grab a pen and a pad and be prepared to take a lot of notes. You don’t want to miss a word!

In life, we all experience hurt, pain, and adversity, and unfortunately most of the time, we waste these experiences, focusing on what was lost, what should have been, or what was missed out on. However, Garth and Inky help us to see that in each situation there are opportunities to be realized and lessons to be learned in the midst of them. Also, be sure to listen all the way through to find out what the difference between grace and mercy truly is.
