Where do you get your ‘willpower’ from?

Is willpower something you can truly harness from within or is it something grounded in something bigger and greater than you?

In today’s episode, Mike Westerdal and Chris Wilson are honored to discuss this subject with Bob Brubaker and John Trebino, hosts of The Powerbreak Podcast.

Life is filled with tests, temptations and struggles every single day. If we think we are capable of handling the burdens of life on our own terms, we are certainly doomed to fail.

Get ready to hear some serious wisdom from 19x Ironman and Pastor Bob Brubaker along with close friend and co-host John Trebino who is a 20-year veteran in Law Enforcement. Both men are committed to helping others succeed in the race of life.


"Power comes from God and if you're not tapping into the power of God, you're relying upon yourself and when you rely upon yourself... the arm of the flesh will fail you." -Bob Brubaker
