Duane Brown on Reserving Judgement, Living with Compassion, and Combatting Anxiety
This week’s conversation is with Duane Brown, the starting left tackle for the Seattle Seahawks.
He played college football at Virginia Tech, and was drafted by the Houston Texans in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
If you’re not familiar with the role of the left tackle, it’s one of the most important positions on the field, responsible for protecting the “blind side” of the quarterback.
These are big men.
Duane is about 6’3”, 315 lbs.
This conversation is about what life is like for Duane when he’s not on the field.
It’s easy to judge a book by its cover and in Duane’s case, he’s gone through life being judged by both his size and his skin color.
The conversations I enjoy most on this podcast are when the guest is willing to turn off their “marketing mind” and let us in… to really understand what’s at the center of their world.
Duane does just that… he opens up about his experiences as a child and why there were times when he felt his “light was dimmed” because it was easier to be accepted that way.
This is a powerful conversation.
