Tyler Lockett on Living with Alignment
This week’s conversation is with Tyler Lockett, a football player who currently plays Wide Receiver for the Seattle Seahawks.
Tyler was drafted by the Seahawks in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, and played college football at Kansas State, where he broke multiple records.
This is the first time I’ve had a current member of the Seahawks on the podcast and it was a special conversation.
Both Tyler’s father, Kevin, and uncle, Tyler, were star football players at Kansas State and went on to play pro ball.
Tyler shares how he dealt with the pressure of living up to their legacy and the anxiety and stress it initially caused him – even driving him to a panic attack at one point.
Tyler has a strong faith based framework that allowed him to overcome these challenges and become the man he is today.
Now, I realize many of you may not aspire to play professional sports and some of you may live a life separate of any faith based denomination, but this conversation is really about living with alignment.
It’s about finding the right framework for you – the framework that allows you to be your best in any environment.
For Tyler, his belief in God is a big part of that – and his poetry.
He began performing at open mics and poetry slams in high school, and he has written poems to work through personal issues, inspire his teammates, and give young people an opportunity to reflect on their lives.
Tyler just released his first book – an inspiring collection of original poetry addressing topics such as identity, sports, race, relationships, and how to live a purposeful life.
I definitely recommend checking his book out!
