Inspiration Through Tragedy

Many people feel they have the strength and toughness to get through anything life throws at them.  A true alpha can adapt and survive no matter what. 

Let me put you in a scenario…  You get hit by a car and have severe head trauma.  You finally get out of the hospital after spending 6 weeks in a coma and 3 1/2 months in the hospital.  You leave the hospita lto find you aren’t the same person mentally and physically.  You find yourself slipping into a depression and think the answer to fix it is alcohol.  Your last drink you pass out and probably shouldn’t wake up due to the excessive amount you had.  But luckily you do.  Do you continue down the dark path or do you find another outlet to deal with your emotions? 

Dan Cox, a true alpha, found his outlet.  FITNESS!  Check out Dan Cox’s inspirational interview!

Pat Farnack, midday anchor of WCBS News Radio 880, interviewed Rick Collins, coauthor of ALPHA MALE CHALLENGE with bestselling fitness author James Villepigue, and wrote a follow-up piece for the Bucks Local News.  An excerpt: 

I was thinking about chivalry when I interviewed Rick Collins, a Renaissance man, lawyer, author, trainer and all-around good guy. He has written ‘The Alpha Male Challenge,’ not only about pumping iron or getting buff, but about being the best man one can be, about getting one’s “male mojo” back.

‘Alpha Male’ can have a negative connotation, of the top dog keeping everyone else in their place to insure that he leads the pack. In canine training, there’s a tactic of getting the dog to give in by rolling him on his back and grabbing him by the throat until he stops squirming and submits. Rick laughed and said, no it’s not that Neanderthal, aggressive, mean, self-centered attitude at all. It’s not about fear but about being heroic, kind and doing the right thing; of being protective and masculine in the very best sense. It’s being at the top of one’s game both mentally and physically.
