What up, Get Up Nation? My name is Ben Biddick, the Host of the Get Up Nation Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball Player and CEO of Lurong Living, Adam Greenberg. Recently I had the honor and privilege of speaking with former National Football League Player Cory Procter. He was a member of three teams in the NFL: the Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys, and the Miami Dolphins. After 6 years in the league he suffered a Patellar Tendon rupture in his left knee which ended his career in the NFL and led to the phenomenal work he is doing now to empower, inspire, and champion people to become their very best with relentless grit, endurance, and perseverance. Cory recently joined Mark Pattison in climbing Mount Kilimanjaro as part of Mark’s Summit Project and Chris Long’s Waterboys organization. Every season, Green Beret and former Seattle Seahawk Nate Boyer joins Chris Long in challenging combat veterans and NFL alumni to join him in conquering Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro. Cory conquered it even after losing vision in one eye due to altitude sickness. He is a phenomenal example of resilience and speaks frequently about how to possess the habits that create greatness as a keynote speaker. This podcast highlights the power of human beings, the importance and value of our closest relationships, and how people can accomplish amazing impact no matter where they are in their lives.
