A mudder is an athlete that performs well in muddy conditions. When I played football as a running back, I was a mudder. When conditions were perfect, I was not the best player on the field. I was above average. However, when conditions were muddy, I was exceptional. In fact, the muddier it was, the better I was. My coach new it too, and I got more carries.
I now realize that particular element of my character is part of my design. It’s in my DNA. I was not taught how to be a mudder. It was intuitive, yet my skills were refined by playing.
I also realize using the gift of being a mudder is my life’s purpose. I can teach others how to be one. I can coach it because I successfully live it. It can be mastered.
My purpose is to be a player coach equipping others to overcome their hurts, hangups and habits to do the right thing and find life by having a tender heart and tough hide.
Player coach means I’ve walked in your shoes. Hurts, hangups and habits are life’s messy and muddy conditions. Learning to do the right thing and finding life is my definition of success. It’s possible for everyone with the help of The Fordriven™ Process. Even you.
Life is messy. Life is muddy. Be a mudder.
