“Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture your heart.”
Native American proverb
Our guest today is an NFL legend, but what you’ll find most impactful about him is how committed he is to making our world a better place, while helping those who need it most.
The best part? He leads by example EVERY step of the way.
Nick Lowery is a Hall of Fame athlete who became the all-time leading points scorer for the Kansas City Chiefs, but his entry into the NFL was anything but smooth. After being released or rejected 11 times by eight NFL teams, Nick was finally given a chance by the Chiefs who, as history proves, made a hell of a return on their investment.
Retiring after 18 seasons in the NFL (where he was selected to the Pro Bowl three times), Nick is widely regarded as the most valuable kicker of all time, achieving records for: most field goals in NFL history; most accurate field-goal kicker in NFL history – despite kicking, on average, from farther away; and all-time leading point scorer for the Chiefs.
Nick is far from the athlete stereotype you might imagine. He attended Harvard University where he graduated with a Masters degree from the Kennedy School of Government. Among his extraordinary list of accomplishments, Nick has:
- Served three US Presidents (Regan, Bush, Clinton) as an advisor on youth and drug policy in the White House;
- Received the most prestigious humanitarian award an NFL player can receive; and
- Worked tirelessly to equip the next generation with everything they need to thrive.
Among his philanthropic endeavors, Nick is founder of Champions for the Homeless, the Nick Lowery Youth Foundation, and has run leadership programs for Native American youth for 20+ years. In addition, Nick is the national spokesman for Kannaway, which is one of the foremost CBD companies in the world and is undertaking extensive research on how CBD can improve neuroplasticity for dementia, trauma, and athletes with brain damage.
In recognition of his efforts, Nick has been featured in The New York Times, Sports Illustrated, and on David Letterman (twice!), and in two feature films including Think and Grow Rich: The Legacy.
We’re going to cover a lot of ground in this episode. Nick will share:
- His secret process to becoming the most accurate kicker in NFL history;
- How we can help underserved populations, including Native American communities and the homeless;
- The exciting research on how CBD can restore brain function;
- How to quickly dust yourself off from failure; and
- And a whole lot more!
