Terrell Owens, NFL wide receiver, on Extreme Achievement and Confidence

Brian FishbachPodcast

NFL legend Terrell Owens ranks in the top 3 of football’s all-time wide receiver records. But behind all the touchdown celebrations, animated press conferences, and playoff tears, there’s the story of an elite athlete who has been challenged by nearly everyone from childhood bullies to the sports media.

T.O. gets in the sauna with Gabby and Neil for a powerful, wide-ranging interview about being the kid least-likely-to-succeed as a teenager, what it takes to be great, dealing with negativity, the confidence paradox, the challenges of fame, and parenting. And of course, they talk about getting snubbed by the Pro Football Hall of Fame for the last two years–and how this is actually a good thing. Listen in as this emotional and powerful gladiator reflects on his incredible and often misunderstood career.
