Ep 050 - Dealing With Pain and Adversity

Hoover Karate podcast, Tim Hoover, Steve Mittman, dealing with pain and anxiety

In case you missed them, be sure to check out the last two episodes where Mike Mittman joined Sensei Hoover and Steve Mittman. They talked about the struggle Larry Holmes had against the odds to become the Heavyweight Champion, how he was determined to fulfill his dreams, and what we all can learn from how he did it. This week’s conversation includes:

  • How hardship builds character

  • When you give up on one thing, you start giving up on a lot of things

  • We all deal with adversity — no one gets by without dealing with hardship

  • The hardship Sensei Hoover’s dad lived with all his life, yet never did he pity himself

“If you’re going through hell, keep walking until you reach heaven.” — Matshona Dhliwayo

We preview next week's episode when our "resident" physical therapist joins us to talk about:

  • The importance of stretching and flexibility for overall health

  • A holistic view of our bodies — how everything is connected and affects everything else

Tell us what hardship you are dealing with/dealt with that has made you stronger.
