...You trained a lot longer, you got more experience in life than they are. And mainly, to be honest with them and not to try and make out that you're someone you're not.
There are times in life where success doesn't seem possible. At a listener's suggestion, I reached out to GM David Oliver and invited him to come on the show. He accepted, but the hurdles we jumped through to make this episode happen were unlike anything I've experienced in the history of the show. From various technical issues to scheduling challenges, it seemed that some greater force was trying to keep me from speaking with him. Fortunately, Grandmaster Oliver was accommodating and we were able to work through everything.
In the end, the episode came out great. This is a man with more than 50 years in Taekwondo. Someone who actually knew General Choi. He's dedicated his life to martial arts and now the organization he oversees has more than 25,000 members. It was an honor to speak with him and I hope you take as much wisdom from our conversation as I did.
