A Journey of Self-Discovery with Former UFC Fighter, Kyle Kingsbury – Episode 270

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

How well do you know yourself and your true identity?

Better yet, what can you do to learn more about yourself and find an identity that will bring you more peace, happiness and fulfillment?

For Kyle Kingsbury these answers were found in some not so common and perhaps surprising places.

A now retired professional MMA fighter, Kyle spent a good portion of his life being angry. This anger served him well when he made his living trying to hurt other men but not so much once he stepped out of the octagon.

Realizing that being happy, content and satisfied with his place in this world meant more to him than winning fights, he set out on a journey of self-discovery.

In this episode Kyle shares the story of his personal transformation, which took him from being an angry, unsatisfied fighter to a man that is totally at peace with his life and his role as Director of Human Optimization at ONNIT.

If you’re interested in learning the methods and mindset that can help you undergo your own personal transformation, you don’t want to miss this episode!
