What is your Next Chapter?

Nov 23, 2016

Our conversation today is with our good friend Terry Hershey. For those of you that don’t know Hershey, who is a regular guest on the show, Terry is a prolific writer, conference keynote speaker, renowned landscape architect, and sometimes spiritual advisor. He’s just an overall wise and fun guy, besides being an old friend.

Today, Terry and I will discuss the wonder of the ordinary and unremarkable everyday occurrences in our lives. It seems we have this tendency to want to accentuate the big and cool things in our lives, when the truth is we miss out on the beauty of the ordinary.

My guest today is Bobby X. Right now, he is sitting across the table from me: shaved head, fully tatted body, wearing a wife-beater undershirt. To tell the truth, if you don’t know him he looks scary as hell.

But that scary guy is not the one we will chat with in this episode. Today, Bobby, is no longer a prejudiced skinhead but instead he is one of the accepting, loved and loving people I know on the planet. But it wasn’t always that way. That’s why I’ve titled this show: “The Transformation of a Skinhead.”

Before we chat with Bobby let’s take a look at his fascinating record.

  • He has been in prison and jail for more than12 years for serious felonies including drugs, possession of weapons, and assault and battery with intent to do serious harm.
  • He was a radical racist and basic hater of people. Fighting was just a normal part of life.

But it came to the point where he got sick of the prison and drug life, began attending a 12-Step program and changed his life around.

So let’s meet Bobby.

 IMPT NOTE: There is a significant statistical error in this episode. (See Below)

 

My guest today is Ryley Westman, the Coordinator of Instruction for the entire San Diego Padres Organization, from Rookie Ball to the Big Leagues.  Ryley is entering his 9th year coaching in professional baseball. In his current role a majority of his focus is put into developing young talent at the minor league level to help impact the San Diego Padres at the Major League level.

You will find no more continual growth and change than in the lives of professional athletes. Improving skills is obvious and never-ending. But the real difference-maker in the great player verses the Elite Player is we call “Make Up,” or how the player is able to growing mentally, emotionally, and relationally.

Ryley Westman’s job is to help young and maturing athletes attain the fullness of their talent and their mental aptitude. Any sport is as much mental as it is physical, if not more. Riley teaches both.

You can reach Riley at rwestman@padres.com

Statistical Correction: I stated that of the 5000 players in the MLB Minor Leagues only 25 players will be called up to a Big League Roster. The more accurate fact is that it is 25 players per organization, therefore there are 5000 players competing for 750 roster spots. Of those 750 spots more than half are secured by veterans, leaving less that 200 spots available for the 5000 players in the Minor Leagues. It is avery tough journey.
