#046 Meet John Tesh
Today’s guest is John Tesh. Unlike some people who are known as a “jack of all trades, master of none,” John is a master at a bunch of different things.
He’s a musician, radio host, TV show host, and author. His impressive resume includes job titles like news anchor and host for the Olympics as well as host of Entertainment Tonight and creator of the NBA theme song. He’s won six Emmys, been nominated for two GRAMMYs, and has four Gold albums. He has also been awarded an Associated Press award for his investigative journalism.
He’s written several books, including his most recent one which is called Relentless: Unleashing a Life of Purpose, Grit, and Faith. In his book, he describes how he overcame a lot of obstacles in life, including being suspended from college, being homeless, and facing a grim health prognosis.
Some of the things John and I talk about:
“We didn’t get any trophies for participation. You had to fight for that trophy.”
“Sometimes, I can’t sleep because I just can’t wait to attack the day.”
“Don’t expect suffering. But when it comes, you better be ready.”
“Your suffering is your suffering. Nobody can tell you, ‘Hey, it could be worse,’ or ‘It could be better.’”
“I knew that nobody was coming to get me. I had two choices. I could either become a drunk, or I could dig myself out and figure out a way to get out of that tent.”
