We are constantly bombarded by stimulus and, more than any other time in history, the ability to focus is becoming increasingly difficult. Focus, however, sits at the top of a list of virtues and abilities every man needs to develop if he hopes to experience any level of success in his life.

My guest today, Navy SEAL Brandon Webb, joins me to talk about how to make better decisions under pressure, the power of self-talk and visualization, how to become more effective at "violence of action," and the 7 principles for total focus.



BRANDON WEBB

My guest today is Navy SEAL Sniper and New York Times Bestselling Author, Brandon Webb.

I'm absolutely blown away by the caliber of man this guy is.

He spent 13 years with the Navy SEALs and was instrumental in redesigning the Sniper SEAL Training program which trained members such as Chris Kyle and some of the deadliest snipers in US military history.

Upon leaving, Brandon went on to found SOFREP.com and Hurricane Media which is one of the largest media organizations that focus on news and information for the special forces community.

When he's not doing all of that, he is an experimental test pilot.

As you can see, the man and his resume is impressive. And, you'll get the chance to hear exactly what I mean today in my conversation with Brandon Webb.

Intuition. It’s the ability to understand or recognize something about a situation or circumstance without having to analyze or break down the facts about that particular situation.

It is so critical that we, as men, learn how to hone our sense of intuition and improve our ability to listen to this little voice – however you choose to define it.

So today, as I was thinking about what I wanted to address, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about why it’s important we improve our intuition and a couple quick and easy steps each and every one of us can employ to make our intuition work better.

Depression. It’s very real. It’s very common. It’s very destructive. We all know someone who is going through a bout with depression, and, we might even know someone who has contemplated or attempted suicide.

Suicide rates are on the rise among men. In fact, as I was researching this morning, I found that some studies have shown that suicide rates among men are more than 3.5 times that of women.

I don’t know why that it is and, unfortunately, I cannot get into all the causes that may lead to what a lot of men seem to be experiencing these days but, what I would like to do is give you five strategies I’ve personally used to overcome getting down on myself and falling into a bout with depression.

There are a lot of tasks we're called to do as men. Among other things, your physical strength will make the difference between your ability to accomplish those tasks or not.

My guest today is Matt Reynolds, the founder of Starting Strength Online Coaching and a man who has nearly 20 years of experience competing in strength sports and coaching barbell-based strength and conditioning. He has not only created one of the premier online coaching services on the planet, he is my personal coach.



Today he's here to share why all men should consider adding barbell training to their routine, the core lifts we should work on improving, how strength training improves mental toughness, and how to get started on your journey to build more strength.

I want to talk with you about building a business and the power of entrepreneurship. I know that word is a buzz-word these days but that’s because there is so much good that comes from this capitalistic society in which we live and the ability that each and every one of us have to think of an idea and, more importantly, MAKE it come to life.

Gentlemen, we all know the world can be a dangerous place. Some would argue it's becoming safer and others would argue it's becoming more dangerous.

Either way, the potential for you encountering a threat in your day-to-day life is a real possibility - and one that we, as men, should be prepared for. My guest today, Patrick Van Horne and the author of Left of Bang teaches us how to use non-verbal communication to assess threats, the common physical language all humans use, how to use "combat profiling" to keep yourself and others safe, and how the Marine Corps' Combat Hunter Program could safe your life.

PATRICK VAN HORNE
Men, I am stoked to introduce you to my guest today.

His name is Patrick Van Horne. He is a former infantry Captain with the United States Marine Corps and has been instrumental in helping develop and teach the Marine Corps Combat Hunter Program to his fellow marines, military, law enforcement officers, and civilians.



His book, Left of Bang, has been recommended to me over and over again and, a couple months ago, I finally picked up a copy. I think read it in two days - I could not put it down.



Since it was one of the best books I've read this year, I decided to reach out and extend an invite to have Patrick on the show.



Guys, let me tell you, he does not disappoint, as he talks about how he helped implement, develop, and train this course to his Marines during his two deployments to Iraq and, more recently his work with his behavioral analysis training company, The CP Journal.

We all know the best view is at the top but, the reality is that it's often the most difficult to get to. In other words, the view is earned. But, how often have we expected the view without the effort?

My guest today - and his second time on our show - is Aaron Walker, the author of View From the Top. Today we talk about the struggles of life, how to life a significant life, establishing boundaries and creating margin, and how to get that view from the top.

Opposition is so important that there’s an entire strategy designed to use opposition to your advantage.

It’s called “Red Teaming," and the basic idea is that you build a team whose sole purpose is to challenge what it is you’re doing.

Today, I talk about why we, as men, shouldn't run away from opposition but embrace it.

So many of us are so good at making excuses. We've been doing it for so long, it's hard for us to recognize what is truth and what stories we tell ourselves that keep us from having what we truly want. Today, my guest, Erik Weihenmayer, talks with me about climbing the seven tallest peaks on each of the seven continents and kayaking 277 miles down the Colorado River. Oh yeah, did I mention he's blind? Today, we talk about identifying barriers, attracting great people in your life, using the concept of alchemy as a powerful tool in your life, and how to crush your excuses once and for all.

A Battle Buddy, for those of you who are not familiar, is a member of your unit who is there to cover your six. He’s there to ensure you’re doing the right things, training as hard as you can, and covering your blind spots so you don’t do anything dumb – like get yourself killed.

It’s a concept we used on the battle field. It’s a concept used on the football field when you consider the blindside tackle whose job is to protect the quarterback at all costs. It’s a concept that is used in every facet of life.

Money is villainized by much of the media and society today. It's easy to see why. Only a select few have managed to build a sizable net worth and, the fact remains, that the majority of the population are living a life of anything but wealth and abundance.

But, that doesn't have to be the case. In fact, much of what my guest, Cole Hatter, talks about today is the mindset and rules for more abundance in your life. We talk about living a life of significance, what money truly is, the value of capitalism, and, more importantly, how to make money matter in your life and the lives of those you care about.

A Rite of Passage is a tradition that dates back as long as humans have walked this planet but it seems to be less and less common. And, unless a young man plays competitive sports, or participates in Scouting, or joins the military, he just isn’t going to be initiated into manhood.

In fact, a lack of initiation into manhood has caused a lot of the problems we see with boys never leaving the nest.

So, today, I want to share the ins and outs of the Rite of Passage I created for my son and the six key components of any Rite of Passage so you can re-create your own.

There is no doubt that all of us have been through some difficult challenges in our lives - some more than others. Whether it's the loss of a loved one, disease or illness, bankruptcy, or divorce, your ability to adapt and overcome spells the difference between those who crumble and those who thrive.


My guest today, Navy SEAL Joost Janssen, talks with us about enduring and even enjoying pain, the power of deciding early, how to harness tragedy and the negativity of others, how to come back from the darkness, and, more importantly, how to thrive through hardship.

We refer to the “moment of truth” as the moment we actually find out if something is going to work or not. Today, I want to talk with you about the faulty premise in that line of thinking.

I realize it’s just a phrase but I was having a conversation with my neighbor the other day about a project he was working on and he didn’t know if it was going to work until he got to the last step.

I do know that sometimes, there’s just no way of knowing whether or not something is going to work out or not until we try it but I also know there are a lot of things we can, and should, know ahead of time.

I mean, why invest huge amounts of time, energy, money, and other resources into something if you have no idea whether it’s going to work out or not?

Through thousands of hours of work, reading, and personal observation I've discoverd that there are four domains of manliness that I believe every single man must address in order to become the best possible version of himself.

So, I thought it would be a good idea to break down those four domains a bit more and share with you some of what I’ve learned over the last two years.

I've never met a man who did not have a dream or, at a minimum, and idea for what his future holds. That said, I've met plenty of men who died with that dream still inside them.

There's a lot of reason for this. And, whether it's fear or a lack of understanding what it will take to make your dream a reality, you owe it to yourself and the world to pursue it. My guest today, Dale Partridge, shares with us how to find that passion, how identify problems worth solving, a 3-part formula for creating workable solutions, and how to turn your passion into your profession.

There seems to be a lot of men these days that have either forgotten what it means to be a man in the home or never learned the skills to step up fully as the king of the castle.

I look around and I see the pain in men’s eyes. And, if it’s not pain, it’s death. There are millions of men walking around like lifeless, soulless zombies. And, the repercussions of that is at best a meaningless life and, at worst, infidelity issues, addiction to drugs, alcohol, and pornography, and, in many case, verbal, emotional, and physical abuse.

While everyone out there is trying to change the world, solve world hunger, bring about world peace, and doing it at a global scale, I’m here to tell you that the way we change the world by equipping men with the tools and skills to lead their own kingdoms. And that means we start by going into the most basic unit in society, the family.

There's only one thing worse than a strikeout - striking out looking. And yet, most of us continue to let opportunities pass us by without taking a hack at them because we're either unprepared or afraid. Never strikeout looking.

You are a liar. I am a liar. Everytime we fabricate an excuse, we keep ourselves from doing the work required to succeed. And, if you aren't willing to tell yourself the truth, you don't want it bad enough.

I heard the phrase earlier in the week, FALSE EVIDENCE APPEARING REAL. Well, I’m here to tell you that’s total B.S. Fear is real! And, in the next 8 minutes, I’m going to prove it to you and tell you why you should embrace fear rather than run from it.

I did a podcast a while back called, Complacency Kills but, when I say, “complexity kills,” I’m talking about the exact opposite of complacency and/or doing nothing. I’m talking about doing TOO MUCH. And, more specifically the mistake of pitfall of over-planning and over-complicating every element of your life.

I look around and I see so many people offering crazy hacks, tips, tricks, fads, pills, strategies, etc., and most of them are too complex – so complex that no one even implements the strategy in the first place.

Study after study has shown that most men are dissatisfied with their career in some form or another. And, yet finding new and more meaningful work seems to be more difficult than ever.

My guest today, Kevin Kermes, talks with us about why that is, how you can make your current position more meaningful, make more money, stand out in a crowded marketplace, and how you can upgrade your career to one you love.

It seems that everywhere you look, you’ll find someone out there willing to tell you how to live your life.

But, what I find fascinating is that not only is everyone out there attempting to dictate your life (probably because they’re working to sell you their wares, and gadgets, and gizmos, and whatever…), but I have to question how often we, as men and leaders in our families, our businesses, and our communities attempt to fix other people.

Bu, do you truly want to change your life? You truly want to connect with your wife? You truly want your kids to listen to you? You truly want your boss to stop being such a jerk?

Here’s how you do it: STOP FOCUSING ON THEM.
