    In this episode you will hear:

     

    In the U.S., we are unbelievable consumers of prostitution, and what comes with that is minors.

    You’re on deployment every time you walk out of the house.

    One in four women is sexually assaulted or sexually abused.

    The sex trafficking crime is so open. It’s openly advertised.

    There are people that think we should defund the police. I think more reasonable people think we should reallocate funds and figure out ways to do this better. There are people out there who can augment what law enforcement is lacking.

    The [funding] money is gonna go where the people demand it.

    [Our organization], All Things Possible does everything from simple counseling to freeing sex slaves.

    Find strength in simply being alive. 

    What comes off of your tongue – what you speak – is what you become.

    The term “Yahweh” is the sound of breathing.

    The mere fact that we, as humans, are breathing, we’re saying the name of our Creator every time we breathe.

    What is God’s name? The thing that gives breath to everything that lives.

    The first thing a baby says is that breath of life. 

    One family, who lost their son on the battlefield, found relief in the fact that the last breath their son took was the name of our creator.

    Find strength, find solace, and find peace, in that simple act of breathing. If you’re alive, you’re saying God’s name, and He’s there to help to you.

Listen as Meyers shares his inspiring stories.

      

    In this episode you will hear:

     

    I’m just a normal, blue-collar dude, who’s been thru the struggle, on and off the basketball floor.

    2 things that help get me by - no matter what: My character and my work ethic.

    How can I help my team?  Selflessness.

    There’s no chance I’m giving up.

    I want shit to get tough, because that when the mental edge takes over.

    Patriotism runs deep in my family.

    I can support the military because of my connections to it, but I still understand that there are issues in America, and I can support my teammates and what they have felt in their lives.

    I could’ve quit – I gave it 7 years – Then I went from getting booed to crowds chanting my name.

    People think that because I’m 7 feet; I’ve got millions of dollars; I drive nice cars – everything is great, but I’m still a normal human being. Sometimes things are hard.

    You are gonna get your opportunity and you better be ready.

    I wanna be known as a man who did something for someone else.

    Chris Osman: Marine, Navy SEAL, Founder of Rhuged

    Chris Osman: Marine, Navy SEAL, Founder of Rhuged

    Chris Osman has a myriad of incredible personal experiences to share in this week’s TNQ Podcast. He is a former Marine and a former Navy SEAL who participated in numerous classified operations, a husband and parent. He has experienced everything from incarceration in a Haitian jail to dealing with a rare, life-threatening disease affecting his wife. Chris currently owns and operates Rhuged, a direct-to-consumer ammunitions distributor. Listen as Chris shares some of his “Never Quit” stories.

     

    In this episode you will hear:

    I learned as I failed.

    I couldn’t shake the desire to be specialized. I wanted to be tested to see if I could even do it.

    The most isolated and depressed I’ve ever felt was being in a Haitian jail. I had zero control – there’s nothing we could do. Bare-footed with a shirt & pants, and that’s it.

    My headspace was in survival mode.

    I had never been so terrified. When I finally got on that plane with my passport on a commercial airline to Miami, tears were streaming down my eyes.

    One day my wife started slurring her speech, and we learned she had contracted Myasthenia Gravis, an auto-immune disease that affects the immune system from the shoulders up.

    One night while in the hospital, she was looking at me, and her eyes rolled back into her head. I quickly assembled the bag mask and called for help. I’ve never been through anything like that. It was a never quit moment.

    You push forward by being the positive light in someone else’s miserable experience.

    You gotta be a rock for your people.

    You can’t bail on people when it gets to be the hardest part of their life.

    It doesn’t matter how much money you’ve got, you can’t be a Navy SEAL. You gotta put the work in.

    No matter how much someone would pay me, I’d never put myself back in a position to work for someone else.

    My goal in life is to never work for somebody else.

    Mike Rouse: Ultramarathoner, Triathlete, Endurance Athlete, Philanthropist

    Mike Rouse: Ultramarathoner, Triathlete, Endurance Athlete, Philanthropist

    If you’re looking for the definition of perseverance, endurance, and a ridiculous “Never Quit” mentality, you will find it in today’s episode with Mike Rouse. Here’s a guy who went from having it all into falling into a cocaine habit that sent him to prison. But the prison life caused him to seek life again outside the prison walls, which, in turn, caused him to start running. Since his freedom from incarceration, Mike has devoted his life to helping others and has become one of the country’s elite runners. He has run hundreds of marathons, dozens of 50-kilometer races, 31-mile races, and 50-mile races. Twenty-four-hour runs and 100-mile races are like home to him, as are Ironmans and Ultramarathons. Mike has won 2 world championships. One of his closest friends, a Navy SEAL was one of 31 soldiers killed on a mission, and every year since then, he’s been running 3.1 miles, 31 times in a row, wearing a shirt with the names and faces of those 31 men. He changes shirts upon completion of every 3.1 miles. He never met most of those men, but Mike feels like he knows them because of the research he’s done on them, the families he’s met, and his own bond with his friend, JT.

    In this episode you will hear:

     

    Use your failures as your advancement

    The first mile of my entire life was when I was 33 years old.

    When I was incarcerated, I thought “I’ve gotta do something to get my life together.” And running was a big part of that.

    The majority of ultra-runners I know have some degree of addictive behavior. It drives them to go above and beyond.

    We’re driven to the next level of competition.

    When I was doing [cocaine], it wasn’t enough to do a gram or two a day, it was a quarter ounce.

    I thrive on pain.

    If you think you are gonna run 26, 50, or 100 miles and have no pain, you have no idea what you’re doing. You’ve got to be ready for it and just embrace it.

    I choose to do this [running] and I accept that pain.

    [Marcus Luttrell] Pain is a matter of perspective of the person going through it.

    31 men gave everything they had for this country – for this freedom.

    I know I can’t give up.

    If you’ve ever quit, the next time, it’s easier to quit.

    I had all the positives a person could have in life, and yet I had a criminal record.

    I run 31 miles a day for 31 days, for 31 heroes.

    [Your son] is gonna be riding on my shoulder tomorrow and I’m gonna be listening to every word he says. When I think I’m hurting a little bit, and he says let’s go, we’ve just got 5 miles left, or 20 miles left.

    It’s 2020 and those families are still hurting 9 years later.

    Marc Little: Christian, Conservative, Lawyer, Pastor, Author of The Prodigal Republican

    Marc Little: Christian, Conservative, Lawyer, Pastor, Author of The Prodigal Republican

    What an encouraging and powerful testimony Marc Little brings to the table in this week’s Team Never Quit episode. Having been shot in the right leg as part of a gang initiation, and dealing with resulting complications and infections, Marc’s leg had to be amputated. Since defeat is not part of Marc’s mentality, he said “yes” to life and lives life to the fullest. Now through his work as a lawyer, author, entrepreneur and community builder, he teaches others how to say “yes” to life as well.

     

    In this episode you will hear:

     

    Don’t give up, because the next try may be the try that leads to success.

    This is a life worth living.

    God gives us a story for a reason. He gives us a story so that we can help a neighbor.

    We’re all going thru a tough season, but God is in it.

    A peanut butter and jelly sandwich has to be done right. You have to have white Wonder Bread, and you gotta have creamy Jiff or Skippy peanut butter, with grape jelly.

    From the time I was shot and the time that the ambulance came, life was literally leaving me. It was clear that I had a choice, and I decided to stay.

    The difficulty of being a dad with a 6-year-old child, and not being able to run with him, has become part of who I am.

    I claim victory because I now know that tomorrow is not promised.

    Everybody has to lean on God because this journey is not easy.

    Life is not about us – it’s about what we can do for the kingdom.

    Many of us are struggling, because we’re not understanding who we are – whose we are.

    [God] connects our calling to who and what He is.

    So many people today are just sitting and watching.

    We have a role to play today. A role to shine the light of Christ.

    We are not lost – have faith.

    God has not left us. He will never forsake us.

    The church is anemic because they don’t understand their calling.

    All of our experiences are intended to bring us closer to the creator.

    After 4 years of never giving up – never quitting I decided I’m picking up the pieces of my life, and you’re not gonna tell me I can’t do it.

    It may not be right now, but the victory is coming.

    When the righteous are in power the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people moan.

    We are called to pray over our leaders and elect Godly leaders over us.

    When u are pushing back against darkness you are taking the background of the enemy. When we are being mocked for praying, that is evidence that we are taking background that was lost. 

    The Lord has a special way of giving you what He wants you to have.

    God sees you – and He has something for you.

    Start your family and let the Lord bless you – Don’t wait. Never quit trying to start a family.

    Kevin Flike: Combat Wounded Green Beret, Author, and Union, Harvard and MIT Alum

    Kevin Flike: Combat Wounded Green Beret, Author, and Union, Harvard and MIT Alum

    Kevin is a former Special Forces Engineer (Green Beret) and holds dual master's degrees from MIT Sloan School of Management as well as Harvard Kennedy School of Government.  On his second deployment in Afghanistan, Kevin was shot in the abdomen and lost 20% of his colon as a result. He also fractured his hip & his left leg was paralyzed due to nerve damage.

     

    Having overcome his life’s adversities with the relentless help of his wife, Kim,  Kevin’s life purpose is to encourage other wounded veterans and anyone else who needs physical, mental, or emotional help by showing them what hope and perseverance look like.

    In this episode you will hear:

     

    There’s nothing in life that you can’t have if you’re willing to work hard for it.

    A lot of these things I went through I didn’t really understand at the time, but they were training me for the rest of my life.

    There is nothing in life that I need to be doing other than this right now.

    We’ve got to put differences aside. We gotta charge forward. We’ve got a mission to accomplish.

    I didn’t want to have regret in my life. I didn’t want to look back and say I didn’t try.

    I realized if I didn’t start to put my health as a priority again, I was gonna be nothing to nobody.

    Reach out to people for help. Start taking people’s advice.

    There is a point in your life where you have enough courage to put everything on the line and accomplish something.

    A lot of people don’t believe it when I tell them that getting shot was the best thing that ever happened in my life. It forced me to pass through a valley of humility.

    Depression, anxiety, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress – if I hadn’t gone through that I wouldn’t be the person I am today.

    Because I went through those experiences, I have the ability to empathize with people. I understand a lot more about the trouble people have in their lives. This made me a better husband, father, citizen, and employee of this country. It gave me an incredible perspective on life, and a ton of lessons learned to be able to go out and share with people; to make them into the best version of themselves.

    I would really encourage people to never quit. When you’re going thru these hard times, you have to understand that hard times are not a bad thing. They’re a gift - to scrape off the rough edges, to learn a lot of lessons, to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes, to refine your character.

    Lift your head up, see what’s happening, then you can push through that hard time. And when you get to the other side, you’re gonna be thankful you went through that.

Those Navy SEALS are doing a great job

Each episode is very important. I don't find myself in all of them but all of them are truly inspiring and have learned a lot of from their never quit story. This podcast has changed my mentality by giving me the never quit mindset. I would like to quote Mr. Luttrell: "Because when you see someone fight that hard it makes life seem pretty easy."
Thank you for what are you doing
