Chris, Chris Waddle, Chris Paul discussed on The Unbeatable Mind Podcast with Mark Divine
And I work with vets who feel invisible and our biggest guess challenge is actually finding the vets. 'cause they're like they rut. Rick lose themselves. Do you find that with disabled. At least like maybe newly newly disabled. They're they're just desperate clues themselves. How do we reach them to inspire them? I mean I get like ice do corporate speaking and training and Dre to inspire inspire someone who wants to go from great to greater right shirt but how do we reach the people who really need people in in desperation. Yeah I think that that's I think that's a that's a part and that's where I think we have to have those venues and that's where television is great because it's in the comfort of your own home. You're sitting on your couch. You're not having somebody say mark. This is what you need to do and let me go. Think about right or a little bit. I'm not going to give you an answer right now but this is where you can kind of process. And that's that's where yeah. I think it could be helpful. And and I realized that the part of part of what I do is is is representing sort of the the one percent or whatever it is of people and that was that was my biggest biggest takeaway from Kilimanjaro. Is that there was a part were they had to carry me for about one hundred feet of vertical but what that did who was the greatest gift and I didn't realize it in the moment and the moment it was failure because you wanted to go unassisted I want to break the record and that was the story you wanted to tell. And as if like one hundred feeders GonNa Change that story people's perception of your you know accomplishment right but for me and the thing is that I became the superhero kind of figure and as an athlete. Even even just leaving college college. I left I left the hospital and went back to college and my friend said I could never do what you've done. No this is step number one right this is it. This is just coming back but but then you win some races and things like that. And you're perpetuating this image and it's it it's that is in a lot of ways the most debilitating thing uh-huh you're not a real human. You're a two dimensional figure super different than anyone else image and and I think that that's the part of love of what we know. The story that we need to tell. Is that no matter who you are your valuable and you're going to need help. It takes a team and yeah. I'm glad yeah I'm sure it makes a lot of sense now. Going up and giving the impression that you did this whole thing alone leaves the team out. You can possibly have done that alone. Even not from the beginning including including that hundred yards or feet. Yeah no no way. No couldn't have takes the team. Do Anything and Gordon are valuable and Mike doesn't it yeah. I was delusional. But that's yeah but that's the way it works and that's the way and I probably. I'm sure I'm still delusional. But but yeah that's that's that's the way it works is realizing that that team is really the foundation of of my power and empowering other people right oftentimes I. I think that's something that we don't learn that I didn't learn As I as I was growing up he tried to little league or whatever. You're trying to win the game and and it's like well how can how can you help. Prop that other person up. How can you because the team is going to be better right? I love that. So if you're listening and you know someone's disabled let them know that they have teammate and coach and Chris by Dell and if your vet. I'll be your team and your coach. Her mouth don't try to do it alone. That's for sure. No No. We can't because our minds are dark places. Yeah I get to that point right. It's sad cannibalize yourself yourself alive.
