There are two days you have no control over - the day you're born and the day you die. Every other day in life represents an opportunity to choose how you decide to live it. My guest today, Dakota Meyer, calls this "Own the Dash." The dash is all the days between your date of birth and your date of death.

Dakota Meyer is a retired Marine and the recipient of the highest military honor one could earn, the Medal of Honor. Today we talk about how he views the events that earned him that recognition, overcoming an attempted suicide, how he has redefined himself through living in service of others, and how he owns the dash.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

What it means to "Own the Dash"
Turning adversity into opportunity
The value of service to others in overcoming struggle
How humility allows you to thrive
Not using PTSD as an excuse to self-destruct
Overcoming a suicide attempt
The power of owning your failures
How to make better decisions
How to find and connect with the right people
Implementing a team in your life
How legacy can drive you to do great things


DAKOTA MEYER

Wow guys, this has got be one of my favorite episodes to date. My guest, Dakota Meyer is a Marine, a Medal of Honor recipient, a New York Times Bestselling author, a business owner, and probably one of the most humble men I've had the privilege of meeting.

In 2009, he and his squad were ambushed by Taliban insurgents where he learned some of  his team members were missing. He went back to find them and, in the process, rescued 12 wounded and provided cover for another 24 Marines and Soldiers.

I was absolutely blown away with his perspective on those events (which was not what I expected) and the subsequent depression and failed suicide attempt that followed. Since then, Dakota has gone on to found a successful construction company and has now dedicated himself to serving others and allowing others to use his platform to share messages of inspiration across this nation.
Sit back and buckle up. Dakota is one of the most real humans I've ever met as he shares some of his personal stories (good and bad) that have made him who he is today.

There’s a term that’s being tossed around these days that’s really been bothering me the more I think about it. The term is “toxic masculinity.” The reason that term bothers me is because, frankly, it does not exist. It’s not real. And, to perpetuate the term is to do injustice to what it means to be a man in the first place – which is probably why it’s pushed with such a heavy hand.

I think there’s a growing movement to undermine masculinity and the term, “toxic masculinity (and others like it)” is just one way to spread the propaganda that somehow masculinity is bad, or evil, or toxic. It just isn’t the case. Masculinity, by its very nature is good. It’s strong. It’s assertive. It’s productive. It’s caring. It’s compassion. It’s charitable. And, I’ve even go so far as to say it’s loving.

Everyone these days wants to be an entrepreneur and while I applaud their desire to go out and create something from nothing, too many men are in it for the wrong reason.

Today, I'm joined by my friend and founder of Origin USA to talk about the meaning of entrepreneurship. This one is unlike a lot of the podcast you see on entrepreneurship where you'll hear the ten tactics every entrepreneur needs to know. We go deep into why entrepreneurship is so important, why you should and shouldn't go into business for yourself, why vision is so critical, ethical responsibilities and obligations, and why creating a business without compromise is so critical.




SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • The value of entrepreneurship
  • 
Why someone should become an entrepreneur

  • Why someone should not become an entrepreneur

  • Why striping away your ego is critical to your success

  • Developing a belief in yourself

  • How to develop more confidence

  • How to use faith to take more calculated risks
  • 
Our moral and ethical responsibilities as business owners
  • 
The value of resourcefulness

  • How to find new pathways

  • How to revive old ways of doing things and "modernizing" them

  • The value of a challenge and competition

  • Why creating a business "without compromise" is a huge competitive edge

  • How to connect with influential people using timing and value


PETE ROBERTS

Gentlemen, today I am joined my my friend, entrepreneur, and founder of Origin USA, Mr. Pete Roberts.

I came across what Pete was doing through Jocko (who is Pete's partner) and was immediately inspired by his story and message behind him and his company, Origin.

This man is not just an entrepreneur but someone who has meaning and significance about the work he's doing to bring manufacturing back to his hometown and create a product that is entirely made in the US, without compromise.

More than anything, today you're going to hear why he does what he does, where his idea of vision, ingenuity, and discipline come from and how the notion of business ownership ties into our responsibility as men to protect, provide, and preside in our homes, our businesses, and our communities.

Again, this isn't a checklist-type interview of everything an entrepreneur should know and do but a conversation about ideas, responsibility, and creativity. Listen to the stories and the message Pete has to share, implement it, and I guarantee you'll live a more fulfilled life and help those you come in contact with along the way do the same.

One topic I see talked about more than just about any other is that of building confidence. It seems that more and more men are lacking the confidence they desire in their lives. I think there’s a lot of reasons for this so today, I thought I’d share with you why we seem to be experiencing more of that, and give you some very quick and actionable tips in order to develop confidence and, of course, the results that stem from it.

More than anything, you’ve got to understand that you are not entitle to confidence. I know you may think you know that but it’s amazing to me how many men seem to think confidence is something men are born with and that some men are just inherently confident.

I think that has some truth to it. Some men are born with a predisposition to be more confident in their lives but I believe the bigger variable to building and developing confidence is the ability to take action despite fear.

It's that time of the year again when the masses begin their new year's resolutions. Fitness, exercise, and nutrition is always at the top of people's New Year's Resolutions but all too often people fail within the first couple of weeks or months to stick to their plans.

Today, I am joined by my friend and fitness coach, Josiah Novak, to talk about nutrition and exercise and why people fall short of their objectives. We cover why they fail, how to create the right environment for success, how to get back on track when you fall off, and how to create a true transformation in your life.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Why people fail with their health resolutions
  • Why we look for the magic pill
  • Common health challenges to overcome
  • How to create the right environment for success
  • The basics of establishing healthy nutrition and exercise habits
  • Why health is usually the first thing to go
  • How to develop more discipline
  • How to get back on track when you fall off
  • Identifying your values to keep you on track
  • Why you should focus on the process rather than the results
  • How to find the correct motivators
  • How to maintain consistency and focus
  • Best tips for exercise and nutrition


 

JOSIAH NOVAK

Gentlemen, I'm stoked to introduce you to my guest today, Mr. Josiah Novak.

I met Josiah through a mutual friend a little over a year ago and through getting to know him over the past year, I can tell you he is the real deal.

I think it's easy for us to assume that these fitness guys have always had the perfect physique but what I admire about Josiah is that he has gone through his own transformation of losing over 80lbs and is now dedicated to helping men around the world do the same in their lives.

You're going to hear that he's not all marketing and hype and another one of "those guys" but a real person who has learned to take a practical no-nonsense approach to the way we move, how we exercise, and what we eat.

Most of you know by now that we have live meetup in Nashville coming up January 26th and 27th. It is going to be an absolutely killer event and I want you there with us. So today, I thought I’d pull back the curtain a little bit and share with you some of the details so you know what we’re up to.

If you’ve been to one conference, you’ve been to all of them but what we wanted to do here is create something truly incredible because the last thing I want to do is sit in a hot, stuffy room for two days and be talked at. I can’t imagine you’d want to do that either.

So, at the risk, of giving away all of our ideas on how to run an effective meetup for men (unlike a lot of these conferences), let me break down eight things about this event you’re going to want to a part of.

Self-mastery is something I talk about a lot. There are a ton of external sources that seem to be fighting against us at any given time but, even worse than that, is that we seem to be our own worst enemy at times. The best way to combat that is to learn to master your natural tendency to do things you know you shouldn't.

Today, I'm joined by my friend, John Dudley, to talk about archery which, at first glance, doesn't seem to have to do with self-mastery. But that couldn't be further from the truth. The amount of dedication and discipline this man has towards become a master of his craft is inspiring and something we can all learn from. We talk about becoming a more well-rounded man, the power that comes from honing a craft, why coach-ability is critical, becoming a lifelong learner, and how to master yourself through bow hunting.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Connecting with nature through bow hunting
  • Becoming more a well-rounded man
  • Taking ownership of your life
  • The power that comes from honing a craft
  • Why coach-ability is critical
  • Ethical responsibilities we have
  • The value of knowing where your food comes from
  • Where training comes into play
  • The relationship between want and waste
  • Why repetition is so important
  • Being a lifelong learner
  • Holding yourself to a higher standard


JOHN DUDLEY

Guys, I'm stoked to bring you this conversation with one of the most qualified men to talk with you about mastery and discipline.

I recently picked up archery and, in fact, I harvested my first deer earlier this year. I underestimated what it would take to make that hunt a success but a lot of what I learned, I learned from my guest, John Dudley.

He's been involved in archery since he was 10 years old (he talks about his first hunt) and since went on to shoot professionally for 20 years with over 120 events worldwide including gold and silver medal with the US archery team.

He's dedicated his life to archery and you're going to hear the passion in his voice as he is striving to become a master in his and show us how to master ours.

I want you to take a serious, truthful look at your life. When is the last time you went on an adventure? I'm not talking about a date with your wife, or trying a new restaurant, or you happened to take a new way to work. I'm talking about a real adventure that scared you, pushed you, and made you feel alive?

Today I'm joined by adventure enthusiast, Laval St. Germain to talk about why it's critical we "step out, and shove off." Today we cover establishing new perspectives for life challenges, why most men are content with living vicariously through others, the danger of cognitive distortions, and how to live a life of adventure.


SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • What calls a man to adventure
  • Overcoming excuses
  • Eliminating discomfort
  • Weight risk vs. reward
  • Creating a new perspective for life's challenges
  • Why we have a desire to prove ourselves
  • The concept of practicing misfortune
  • Mental preparation
  • The danger of cognitive distortions
  • Rising to the level of our training
  • Finding experts
  • Why living vicariously through others is never enough
  • Avoiding comparison
  • What exactly is delayed activation


LAVAL ST. GERMAIN


Today, I'm joined by adventurer and explorer extraordinaire, Laval St. Germain.

This man is so qualified to talk with us about living a life of adventure.

His resume includes being the only Canadian to climb Everest without supplemental oxygen, climbing an skiing Iraq's highest peak, the fastest ever crossing North Atlantic solo row, climbing the highest peaks on 6 of the 7 continents among other amazing accomplishments.

He spent 53 days rowing across the Atlantic, and lost three fingers to frostbite. He's a mountaineer, an endurance athlete, and a pilot.

What more can I say about this guy? He's incredible and inspiring. I know you'll walk away inspired to live your own life of adventure.
