Within each one of us, lies untapped potential waiting to be unleashed. Most men go to their graves without realizing that potential. My guest today, strong man, Chris Duffin, is not one of those men. And, he’s encouraging you how to unlock what has been dormant for so long in his book The Eagle and the Dragon.

Today, we talk about what the eagle and the dragon signify in ourselves, stepping into fear and confrontation, how to differentiate between functional and dysfunctional relationships, the pursuit of purpose, and, embracing strength and reinvention.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Over-leveraging yourself
  • Understanding your why
  • Adapting to stress
  • Creating space and margin
  • Separating from your environment
  • Purposeful action
  • Counterproductive people
  • Forming the world around you
  • Pro-activity
  • Reaching into the unknown
  • Becoming a pillar of strength

CHRIS DUFFIN

My guest today is a man who, for many of you listening, needs no introduction. He’s been on the podcast before – roughly three years ago. But with his new book coming out, The Eagle and the Dragon, Chris and I thought it would be good to sit down for a revisit.

He’s one of the strongest men on the planet but he’s also an incredible thinker and in his new book, he illustrates his, interesting childhood and how he raised himself from those conditions to be successful as a businessman, family man, and strong man. I can’t wait to share this one with you today.

LEGACY

A couple of years ago, I recognized a need to give men the tools and resources they needed to secure their legacy in their sons. With so much misinformation in the world about how to raise our boys, it’s critical that we, as fathers, do the best job possible for the challenges they’re likely to face.

That’s why we started Legacy, a powerful 3 ½ day event for you and your son between the ages of 8 -15. During the course of this incredible experience, both you and your son will be tested physically, mentally, and emotionally. And you’ll both be equipped with the tools needed for your boy to transition to a self-sufficient man in a society that, frankly, doesn’t want him to. And, you’ll forge deeper bonds through a series of events and experiences unlike any other.

If you want to learn more about what this experience holds and lock in one of the 11 remaining spots for our June 11th – 14th experience, head to www.orderofman.com/legacy.

Adversity is absolutely something all men deal with. So, what separates those who crumble in the face of it and those who rise up?

That’s exactly what my guest, former Navy SEAL Jason Redman, is here to talk with me about today. In today’s conversation, we cover his incredible journey from being badly wounded from an enemy bullet through the face and arm to an incredibly successful business owner and public speaker. We also cover how to discover your purpose, build up mental fortitude and resilience, compete with the most successful people on the planet, and, ultimately, how to crush adversity.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Developing mental scripts
  • Getting ambushed in life
  • The React Methodology
  • Enduring discomfort
  • Hitting rock bottom
  • Playing the victim
  • Living in denial
  • Reflecting on mistakes
  • Embracing hardships
  • A better version of your new self
  • Fighting for your life

JASON REDMAN

Gentlemen, I’m honored to introduce you to my guest today, former Navy SEAL and friend Jason Redman.

He spent 11 years as a Navy SEAL and was badly wounded on the battlefield in Iraq where he earned the Bronze Star Medal with Valor, Navy Commendation Medal, and Purple Heart among other medals and acknowledgments.

After retiring from the military in 2013 he went on to found a non-profit called Wounded Wear which provides tailored clothing for wounded warriors. And, in addition to that, he’s written several books about his experience in combat as a leader on the battlefield and is a New York Times Bestselling Author. Today, he is here to share his lessons from battle.

LEGACY

I’ve got to a point in my life (especially since I’m a father) that what will remain long after I’m gone has become important to me. And, I’m sure if you’re a father, you feel the same way.

And, as a father, the lessons and experiences you share with your son are critically important to you. That is why we started the Legacy Experience. It’s a 3 ½ day event in Maine designed to give you the tools, framework, and guide to usher your son into manhood.

In the face of society’s confusion about masculinity and manliness, it’s critical that we, as our son’s fathers, teach them the truth about the path from boy to man. Over the course of 3 days, you and your son will be tested physically, mentally, and emotionally and given the opportunity to forge deeper bonds between you and him.

Keeping yourself and others safe and secure is a huge part of what it means to be a man. It falls under the “Protection” trifecta of our role and responsibilities as men. That’s the reason having conversations like I do today with James Yeager is so crucial.

It seems to me too many men believe we’ll naturally rise to the situation when it is demanded from us. But without the proper training, we’re likely to find ourselves wanting and in dangerous situations and encounters. We’d all do well to remember that we don’t rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Planning for the unexpected
  • A lack of motivation
  • Walking with purpose
  • Mastering the sword
  • Yin & Yang of man
  • Using guns to save
  • How to avoid being “picked”
  • Passing the smell test
  • Natural point-of-aim
  • Knowing what to look for
  • Gear vs. Skill
  • Dealing with intimidation
  • Systems & procedures

JAMES YEAGER

Gentlemen, I’m so honored to be able to introduce you to James Yeager. This is a fascinating man and someone who is uniquely and extremely competent and qualified to talk about keeping yourself and others safe and secure.


He is the CEO of Tactical Response, a tactical training company and his resume consists of two protective security details to Iraq, Chief of Police, K-9 handler, Deputy Sheriff, SWAT leader, Firearms instructor, and VP of a multi-million dollar tactical gear company.

I could go on and on but suffice it to say that there aren’t many, if any, more qualified individuals to talk with us about turning ourselves into the protectors our families and communities need us to be.

IRON COUNCIL

Over the past 5 years, I’ve really considered what it is a lot of men are missing and what I’ve seen in a lot of men is a lack of brotherhood. Most men seem to be going at life alone. We’ve all head the idea of the lone wolf and while I can understand that a man has to learn to make it on his own, having men who have my back, call me on my B.S., and support me has proven to be some of the most valuable relationships I’ve created.

But doing that can be difficult with a demanding schedule and a lack of men who want to grow and evolve the same way you do. And that is the exact reason we created the Iron Council. It’s a band of brothers (500+ of us) who have voluntarily decided that banding together is more powerful than going at it alone.

Each week, we host calls and discussions, check-in for accountability, challenge ourselves to push outside of our comfort zones, call each other out, support, edify, and uplift.

And, if you feel that might be of value to you in your life, we’d be honored to have you see if there is a fit for both us and you. Head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil to learn more and claim your seat in the brotherhood.

If you’re anything like me, when you were a kid you had dreams of becoming an elite warrior or a NASA Astronaut – maybe both. My guest today is a man that took those dreams and is making them a reality.

His name is Mario Romero. He’s a former Navy SEAL, NASA Diver, and aspiring NASA Astronaut and he’s here today to talk about what that path looks like, his struggles along the way, failures and setbacks, his path to redemption, and how he’s a man who is currently living out every boy’s dreams.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Going Beyond Pluto
  • Every kid’s dream
  • The frontier of space
  • Spacewalking
  • Dark matter detection
  • Pursuing fulfillment
  • Interrogating nature
  • Discovering new information
  • Science in America
  • Growing up in poverty

  • A downward spiral
  • Building relevancy
  • Studying astronomy
  • Predetermined destiny
  • Being courageous
  • Rewriting a new path in life
  • Getting into NASA
  • Returning to the moon

MARIO ROMERO

As I mentioned earlier, my guest today is Mario Romero. He spent over 8 years as a Navy SEAL and, upon leaving the Teams, he enrolled in college and achieved his Bachelor’s Degree in Pure Mathematics from Columbia University.

And, to add to that, over the past year he has been working with NASA as a NASA Diver preparing both the technology and astronauts for the demands and rigors of space travel.

He’s had a ton of ups and downs along his path and, despite his tremendous success in life, he’s one of the most humble individuals I’ve had the honor of sitting down with.

IRON COUNCIL

You’ve likely heard of the philosophy of Stoicism. You’ve probably even read Marcus Aurelius’ book, Meditations and/or Ryan Holiday’s The Obstacle is the Way, Ego is the Enemy, and Stillness is Key.

And, if you’re interested in incorporating the teachings of the ancient Stoics in your life, I want to invite you to join the Iron Council as that is what we’ll be talking about for the entire month of November.

We’ve got the tools and resources to help you take a concept/philosophy and actually implement it in your life for better results in your marriage and career. We don’t want to just talk about what it means to be a Stoic, we want to apply it for the betterment of ourselves and others.
