In order to become successful, no matter the field you’re in, you’ve got to focus on the process and fall in love with “how” you do things, not with ”what” you can get out of what you do. Allow yourself to make mistakes, to learn and to adapt. Be open to everything because the minute you become naive and a tunnel-vision person, you stop growing.
In today’s episode, I talk with Lamar about how he sees the world in general and the healthy attitude we should all have toward each other. He talks about becoming successful relying on your own forces and instincts, and he shares with us stories from his rich background.
Lamar McKnight was born and raised in the heart of Jersey City. He almost lost his life from just hanging with the wrong people at the wrong time, but he survived and learned his lessons. Lamar says that his past is the root of his current success. He started the Lamar McKnight Quarterback Academy in New Jersey and he is one of the fastest-growing quarterback trainers in the country.
What makes him so special is the way he views human connection – regardless of where you come from, regardless if your black or white, he’ll treat you according to the person you deserve to be.
