Marques Ogden was drafted into the NFL in 2003 and played as an offensive lineman with the Titans, Bills, Ravens and Jaguars. After 5 years of playing in the league, he decided to retire and pursue a career in construction and contracting. A few years later Marques's life began to fall apart, and during that time he struggled with his sobriety. After his darkest hours he got a part-time job as a custodian, starting working out, fed his body with good nutrition, got sober, lost over 100 lbs., became a motivational speaker, best-selling author and marketing leader, helping to build the success of others. Marques has a new book out called The Success Cycle : 3 Keys for Achieving Your Goals in Business and Life which we are going to dive into today with some of the principles behind the success cycle. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • How to tell the difference between Ego and confidence?
  • Why it’s important to have a coach, or a sponsor and be surrounded by positive influences
  • How to get rid of the Victim mentality
