🔥I am so excited about this interview! We have Ben Newman in the house today and he is an absolute stud. Ben is a highly regarded Performance Coach, International Speaker and Best-Selling Author, whose clients include Fortune 500 companies around the world, business executives, sales organizations and professional athletes in the NFL, PGA, NBA, MLB, UFC and NCAA. Ben serves as a Mental Conditioning Coach for the 17-time National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide football team and has worked with players from the last 3 Super Bowl Champion teams. He was recently selected by Influencive.com as one of the TOP 10 Motivators in Sports and Real Leaders Magazine selected him as one of their 2019 TOP 50 Speakers in the World. In today’s interview we talk about Ben’s beginnings and everything he’s been through. Ben is now one of the biggest sports speakers in the world, but he was not always like that. He talks about one of his first speaking engagements where he was paid with a coffee mug, another where he was paid with a picture book. He continued forward when everyone around him was telling him to quit, and that’s exactly why he is where he is today. Ben and I discuss how to overcome the victim mentality and he gives some great insight to me. Instead of using statements telling people to stop being victims, you should ask them questions of why they are a victim. My favorite part of the interview is where Ben goes into the commonalities of the top performers he works with. He says the most common trait of top of people is that they are not seduced by success. What drives them is the burning desire and obsession to figure out what their very best looks like. They drive a standard everyday rather than allowing their feelings to dictate their behavior. Now what does that look like? It means holding myself to my standard of being in the gym at 4am. It means holding myself to my standard of reading everyday. It means holding myself to my standard of doing excellent work. Now if you really want what you say you want, you’ll put in the work. If not, you won’t. It’s that simple.

Sam Bakhtiar is the Co-Founder of Camp Transformation Center that has impacted thousands of lives and grown to many locations with a vision of becoming a household name globally. From 1-1 personal training to expanding their offerings to group training which proved to be very affordable, they decided to expand into other areas and people liked the model so much that they decided to franchise this concept which proved to be successful. Being raised by a single mother, Sam immigrated from Iran to Pennsylvania, America after a series of bombings and fearing for their lives, his mother decided it was best to leave the country for a better life. After not making the cut for the basketball team, Sam went to the local boys club after his mother told him that he should start training and try out again the following year. However, Sam was fascinated by the people training at the gym and their physiques which inspired him to train to become a Champion Bodybuilder.
