HIT HARD: 3 Must Have Mindsets to (re)Design Your Life

What does your ultimate life look like to you? What dreams or goals do you have? 

Paul was born with a unique set of arms that were short and missing fingers. This didn’t stop him from loving sports; especially football. As a child he dreamed of playing football at the college level. People thought I was crazy because momst thought that dream was gone when he was cut from my high school football team.

Six years later he found himself running onto the field at Varsity Stadium, wearing a University of Toronto jersey. 

Hit Hard will share with you three Must-Have-Mindsets you need to (re)design the life you want. You will leave with all the tools you need in taking the power step towards your goals.
