Fire In The Belly with Pete Lonton: We All Need Somebody

Leadership coach, entrepreneur, and curious adventurer Tony Martignetti joins the show today to discuss how he allows people to unlock their potential and helps them to climb their personal mountains. Together they discuss how overcompensating can lead to burnout, why you have to be open to being wrong and how fire in the belly is what drives you to push yourself to make your dreams come true.



  • Fire in the belly is something that drives you. Your fire is something that keeps you moving and in action. The inside fire is something that keeps you alive and helps you strive forward. There is something alive in you that is dying to come out and help you move forward to the next step of your life.
  • The path to burnout is when you try to overcompensate and live your life to reach the top of a mountain and then realize you do not like what you have become. That is because you have continued to struggle to get there and realized that you have done everything to force yourself to get there, and you are unhappy with the results.
  • You have to be open to being wrong and be open to rethinking situations. If you hold your beliefs so strongly that you are not open to being wrong then there is no way to expand and there is no way to innovate in a way that will make an impact.
  • There are so many people that die with a song in their heart that has never been sung. We need to ensure that each person gets that out of them, even if they’re scared. Do not be afraid.



  • “I didn’t know that I was on a path that was not mine.”
  • “You have to be open to being wrong.”
  • “We win together by opening up and sharing.”
  • “What kind of coach would I be if I didn’t have a coach?”
  • “We all need somebody.”
