“Why be good when great is available?” — Justin Forsett

Denver Bronco Justin Forsett grew up as a pastor’s son in a small town in Florida, where he dreamed of playing professional football. However, due to his small stature, many recruiters and coaches overlooked him throughout his career. In this episode, Justin shares his story, from the lessons he learned from his father growing up to the sacrifice his parents made to give him and his brothers a better life and more opportunities for success. He explains the role of self-reflection in developing your strengths, why vulnerability is essential to growth and how serving others can bring out the best in you and give you freedom. At the end of this episode, you’ll be inspired to face your challenges and be great.
