MWH 049: JR Vezain
Our guest on the show today was Professional Bareback Rider, JR Vezain. JR has won a million bucks on the back of a bucking horse. He is a 6-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier, 2011 Resistol Rookie of the Year in the Bareback, and all around good dude. In the last weekend of the 2018 PRCA Season, on the way to his 6th Finals, JR broke his back while covering a horse in Pasadena, TX that left him parlayed from the waste down. Since that day, his life has changed. His positive outlook on life has not. He’s mindset and strong will are awe inspiring. His attitude in the face of this huge adversity is something we can all learn from. He’s been dealt a pretty bad hand, but instead of feeling sorry for himself and letting it defeat him, he’s decided to put his nose down, work harder than ever, and attack this with a ferocity of a man who KNOWS he will walk again. It really puts things in perspective. Stop feeling sorry for yourself. I know I needed to hear that. On top of all this, JR and his wife, Shelby, have a little boy due to be here in May. What a wild ride this life can be. This is a great talk. His discussion on mind set and getting in “the zone” is worth the listen alone. (Spoiler alert: the rest is awesome too!) Thanks for hanging out with us. We think you’ll love this one.
Life is short. Ride a Unicorn!
