Although he had one of the most dominate NFL careers of all time, Terrell Owens had a less than traditional path to superstardom. In this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu, Terrell Owens explains how desire, dedication, and discipline can take you anywhere you want to go.

Terrell Owens is by the numbers one of the greatest NFL superstars of all time. His road to super stardom is all the more inspiring because it was a less than traditional path. He grew up in a tiny town in Alabama, and while he had a solid high school career, he didn't exactly light the world on fire.

After getting drafted by the San Francisco 49ers, Terrell smashes and made a name for himself. In a world where the average tenure in the NFL is roughly three years, he clocked 15 years, going to the Pro Bowl six times and being named an Associated Press All Pro five times. With 1,078 receptions, 15,935 yards and 153 touchdowns, he is virtually guaranteed to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. In addition to his unbelievable success in the grid iron, he's also a bestselling author who has penned an autobiography, a book on fitness and a successful children's book.

Additionally, Terrell is a motivational speaker dedicated to empowering today's youth and a passionate supporter of the cause to eradicate Alzheimer's disease. He also recently launched an athletic clothing line called Prototype 81. Don’t miss this episode of Impact Theory with NFL Legend and all-around superstar Terrell Owens.

From robbing banks to earning a PhD in neuroscience, former hacker Moran Cerf has unique perspective on what makes people tick. In this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu, Moran explains the brain science of how self-narrative determines our reality.

His discoveries have made him a much sought after speaker and leading thinker who's influencing academia and business in equal measure. His innovative theories about the brain have been published in Nature, the highest-ranking journal in the world, and he consults regularly for hit shows such as Mr. Robot and Limitless.

His education is a wondrous grab bag of joy and includes a PhD in neuroscience from Caltech and both an MA in philosophy and a BSc in physics from Tel Aviv University. He's a visiting faculty member at MIT's Media Lab, and was named one of the 40 leading professors under 40.

Moran is the Alfred P. Sloan professor at the American Film Institute where he teaches a screenwriting course on science and film. He holds multiple patents and is a multi-timed national storytelling champion whose talks have garnered him millions of views.

The Nerdwriter aka Evan Puschak takes deep thinking to a whole new level. In this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu, Evan talks about the importance of critical thinking and why a clear worldview is vital for having a full life.

In his smash hit YouTube show The Nerdwriter, Evan crawls inside important ideas like an intellectual archaeologist and roots around, grubby fists and all, until he finds the narrative thread that makes those ideas accessible. In an era where people will tell you the only thing that matters is entertaining people, he's built a wildly successful YouTube channel with roughly one million subscribers. That proves there's still a huge market for depth.

His powerful essays on an absurdly wide range of topics from Batman and Rihanna to politics and moral issues provide viewers with the kinds of insights that can truly shape one's worldview. Recognizing his unique gifts, MSNBC snatched him up to produce for them when he was still in his early 20s and the Discovery Channel tapped him to write and host a show on their digital network, Seeker Daily, where he produced a hoard of breakout content.

Evan is proving that creators from anywhere, armed with a simple camera and a willingness to work hard, can not only make a living as content producers, but can alter the very direction
and flow of cultural discourse. Evan’s entirely self-made treasure trove of content has been viewed more than 48 million times by people all over the world.

Named as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time Magazine, V.S. Ramachandran sits down with Tom Bilyeu on Impact Theory to discuss the correlations between the brain, poetry, and living a better quality of life.

V.S. is one of the most respected minds in all of neuroscience. His name is often uttered in the same breath as some of the most enduring names in the history of science. His insightful experiments, coupled with his ability to boil the complex down to the super simple, has made him one of the most sought after lecturers living today. He has done multiple TED talks and, like Michael Faraday, Thomas Huxley, and countless Nobel Laureates before him, he has had the immensely grand honor of being invited to give a Friday evening discourse at the Royal Institution of Great Britain. 

Additionally, he was the Gifford Lecturer of 2012, an honor reserved for history's brightest minds that dates back to the 1800s and has included such legendary figures as Niels Bohr, Roger Penrose, Werner Heisenberg, and Carl Sagan. He obtained his PhD from Trinity College at Cambridge, received two additional honorary doctorates, as well as the Henry Dale Medal. Richard Dawkins once called him "The Marco Polo of Neuroscience." He is the Director of the Center for Brain and Cognition, a distinguished professor with a Psychology Department and Neurosciences Program at UC San Diego and is an adjunct Professor of Biology at the Salk Institute. V.S. is also the best-selling author of The Tell-Tale Brain, Phantoms in the Brain, and A Brief Tour of Human Consciousness.

Wake Up Happy is not only the title of his New York Times best-selling book, it’s something that Michael Strahan does every day. From the NFL Hall of Fame to becoming a household name, Michael’s road to happiness and success is unpacked in this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu. 

During a storied 15-year career in the NFL, Michael set the record for most sacks in a single season, won a Super Bowl ring and through his do or die play, left such an enduring mark on the sport that he was inducted into the hall of fame.

And his success in football honestly was just the beginning. To understand the dizzying heights he's climbed to since retiring, you need to only understand his world view. In his words, there's a difference between improbable and impossible. And his life story is proof that this statement is true: He managed to get a full ride scholarship to play football in college, even though he grew up in Germany and didn't play until his senior year in high school. Post football, he turned his attention to hosting for TV. Not only did he become a full-time fixture on Fox Sports, but he also landed the job of co-host on 'Live! with Kelly and Michael'. From there he reinvented himself again and joined Good Morning America, one of the most coveted roles in morning television. 

Michael also wrote the New York Times best-seller “Wake Up Happy: The Dream Big, Win Big Guide to Transforming Your Life” His jaw-dropping level of success as an athlete, host and entrepreneur may be improbable, but he's truly proven that impossible only exists in the mind.
