Ep 13: How Childhood Illness Turned Liam Murphy Into A High Performance Man

JCF_YT_EP13(1)

Life is tough as f*ck when you’re a kid, and you get slapped on with an illness you’re not ready for.

Kids in school won’t understand what you’re going through

They’ll make fun of you, 

Call you names

And do all sorts of mean stuff that you never deserved at all.

This kind of story is something that Liam Murphy is no stranger to.

At the age of 11, he was diagnosed with gynecomastia

And it sucked out the joy out of his childhood.

When that happens to guys at that age

Their self esteem takes a massive hit, 

They give up on themselves, and lead a life full of depression that will last for ages.

But what made the young Liam a savage 

Was taking action into his desire to get better and not let his illness define him.

As early as highschool, he decided to change his eating habits

Get up at 5 in the morning to run across the beach before heading to class

Drank more water, took care of his gut and sleeping habits.

He simply became his own mentor.

Liam is doing way better now and these decisions he made in his early years

Made a great influence on how he approaches life today.

He’s a big believer in setting standards for ourselves,

How practicing gratitude and self love can make a world of difference for us.

These values that he lives by are what makes him an excellent coach in my team.

So if you happen to think you’ve got it bad at the moment

You may want to hit the link to watch this episode

And hear a fella out 

On how he swam his way up from the bottom of the barrel

And become the high performance guy he is now.

See you in the episode, legends.

Cheers.
