Becoming a Weapon of Mass Creation with Rudy Reyes – Episode 250

Posted by Jason Ferruggia

What does it mean to live a heroic life?

Does it take the skillset and killer instinct of a Marine on the front lines in war?

Or do you need the courage and mental toughness to overcome life’s greatest challenges?

For Rudy Reyes, my guest in this episode, it was all this and more.

Rudy is a former Force Recon Marine, actor, motivational speaker and fitness expert. As a child he faced and overcame struggles that most people can’t fathom. Watching silver screen heroes like Bruce Lee and Stallone, he found encouragement, hope and the example of what he wanted to be. He followed in the footsteps of his father and stepfather and enlisted in the Marines. After proudly serving his country he ended his decorated military career as an American hero. At one point in his life Rudy was a Weapon of Mass Destruction. His new goal is to leave a legacy where he is known as a Weapon of Mass Creation.

Rudy achieved success and fulfillment despite great adversity. To learn what it takes for you to do the same don’t miss this episode.
