Everywhere you turn this time of year, you’ll see someone telling you how to set New Year’s Resolutions. And, while I think there is validity to setting up resolutions correctly, there just doesn’t seem to be a lot of new information.

Everyone knows how to set goals. We’ve all heard of SMART goals (specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-sensitive – or some variation of that) but, is setting goals really the problem?

Do you really have a hard time dreaming? Do you really have a hard time envisioning the future? Do you really have a hard time thinking about what you would like to do over the next twelve months?

I would argue that most don’t have a problem with this. In fact, I don’t think most people have a problem even getting started. Most people can easily get fired up about something for a week or two or even a month.

So, rather than tell you how to set New Year's Resolutions, I'm going to teach you how to KEEP THEM!

Today, we talk about Invictus.

Most of society believes, or lives life, as if someone or something else is in control. Whether you call it fate or destiny or something else entirely, it's wrong.

The problem with believing, or at least adhering to, the notion that you don’t have control over your life is that you give away any power you have in doing something about it.

Today we talk about 5 excuses you'll need to eliminate from your life and the mindset required to do it.

50 Ironmans in 50 states in 50 days: This is what my guest, James "Iron Cowboy" set out to do. Everyone said it was impossible. Nobody thought it could be done. He disagreed.

In 2015, James set out for the impossible and 50 days later completed what he set out to do in the face of overwhemling odds, physical damage, mental exhaustion, and obstacle after obstacle to overcome.

Today he shares his journey.

JAMES "IRON COWBOY" LAWRENCE

James Lawrence is an endurance athlete and Ironman triathlete. He holds two Guinness World Records in 70.3 and 140.6 triathlon racing.

In 2012, James shattered the World Record by over 10 races, winning 2 titles and placing 2nd in five others.

After 2012, James "Iron Cowboy" Lawrence wanted to test the true limits of his mind and body and wanted people around the world to join him in an effort to raise money for childhood obesity and empower them to take control of their own lives.

So, he set out for the unthinkable: 50 Full Distance Courses, 50 Consecutive days, through all 50 States.  He'd cover 140.6 miles each and every day, for 50 consecutive days.  A 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride and then finishing up by covering 26.2 more miles, which is the marathon.

 

In 2015, he completed what everyone else said was impossible. This is his story.

Stocism is the philisophy of focusing on perception, action, and will. Most people have a misconception of what Stoicism actually is - that it ends with thought and contemplation.

Stoicism however, is the ability to focus on what you can control and turning that into the action neccesary to propel your life and the lives of those you have an obligation and responsibility for.

In this episode, we talk about the three keys to Stoicism and additional resources you'll need to delve into on your journey to become a Stoic Man.

Why do men like to fight and why do we like to watch? These are questions I’ve asked myself before and ones that we attempt to answer with my guest today Jonathan Gottschall, an English professor with some real-world experience in MMA.

Today we talk about the nature of fighting, how fighting has evolved, the role honor plays in combat, and where the desire to make men more civilized comes from.

JONATHAN GOTTSCHALL

Jonathan Gottshcall is  a Distinguished Fellow in the English Department at Washington & Jefferson College.

His research at the intersection of science and art has been covered in outlets like The New York Times, Scientific American, The New Yorker, The Atlantic, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Nature, and NPR.

Jonathan is also the author of seven books, including The Storytelling Animal, which was a New York Times Editor's Choice Selection and a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize.

When he was 39, a cage fighting gym opened across from the English Department. He asked myself, "What would Hemingway do?" The answer is in his latest book, The Professor in the Cage: Why Men Fight and Why We Like to Watch.

A lighthouse does not adapt, conform, or bend to the will of others or what society says about the way it should behave. A lighthouse is the rock others will look to. Are you acting like the rock – the lighthouse?
