How to Use Pain to Become the Best In the World with Rodney Mullen on Impact Theory

Skate pioneer Rodney Mullen innovated the sport with so many
game-changing tricks he is commonly referred to as “The Godfather of
Street Skating”.
More than his accomplishments, Rodney is most proud of
inspiring those after him to dream beyond the impossible. The man whose
character was featured in Tony Hawk pro skater for over a decade shares
the importance and impact of shattering disbelief on this episode of
Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu.

Rodney defines the barrier of disbelief and how he breaks through it.
Rodney on the process of reinventing his free skate style.
Rodney tells how focusing on skating helped him through tough times.
Rodney and Tom discuss his injury and the painful process of bouncing back.
Rodney explains what made him throw away his trophies.
Rodney shares what things outside of skating keep him excited today.
Rodney reveals the impact he wants to have on the world.

“Rarely is it a question of talent or technique at those levels. It's
just one of belief and the concomitant will to kind of do something that
either no one's done before, or even more, I think, to crack open the
barriers that people consider impossible or un-doable.”

“The joy I get that I could create some of the vocabulary for others to express themselves, that gives me a connectedness”
“Just find joy in what you do for the sake of it. And then recognize how
you're being shaped in the process, and hopefully, you become a better
man through it.”
