John recently invited The Biggest Loser’s Sonya Jones to his live training event as part of his ‘Minutes With Maxwell series.’ Each episode in this motivational video series starts with a ‘word of the day’ followed by a corresponding story. It's no wonder that these two individuals with compelling stories decided to partner together to change even more lives (read Sonya's story here): 

Dear Friend,

Today’s word is “strength”. I am overjoyed to be with Sonya Jones, who was a contestant on the hit reality show, “The Biggest Loser” and lost 144 lbs. Sonja is the perfect example of strength. Every day she has to do something that is not natural, fight a battle, change her habits, become disciplined, and find and use inner strength. No matter what your battle is or what you’re trying to achieve, you can find the resolve and make a positive change. Find your strength. Use it. If Sonya can do it, you can do it.
