There is no doubt that many of us have begun to call into question the enforcement of unconstitutional orders and Covid-19 restrictions, including my guest today, Police Officer with the Port of Seattle, Greg Anderson.

Greg is currently on administrative leave pending an investigation which will likely lead to his termination for insubordination after posting a video on his personal Instagram page expressing his concerns with police officers enforcing unlawful and unconstitutional orders. It’s obviously a very touchy subject and situation but a conversation that needs to be had.

Today, we talk about how we must unite as a country, the use of discretion by police officers, living in fear, the government’s power/control grab, and drawing a line in the sand, and standing by your convictions.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • It’s not about COVID-19
  • Violating social media policy
  • Keeping it above the fray
  • Operating in tribes
  • Doing the right thing
  • Inspiring officers
  • Fighting for freedom
  • The violent side of humanity
  • Losing your mind
  • Mitigating risk
  • Living in fear
  • Focus on the mission
  • Reckless behavior
  • Not picking sides
  • Opening the floodgates
  • Holding true to principles

GREG ANDERSON

My guest today is Greg Anderson and, although you may not know his name, it’s likely that you’ve seen his video in which he talked about his concerns, as a police officer for the Port of Seattle, of enforcing illegal and unconstitutional orders in the wake of Covid-19.

In addition to serving his community as a law enforcement officer, he is an Army Ranger veteran serving multiple combat tours including one to Ramadi, Iraq in the most hostile and dangerous environments one can imagine. Greg is also a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt and the owner of Electric North Jiu-Jitsu and has recently become an outspoken advocate for individual rights, liberty, and freedom.

I think our conversation is likely to fire a lot of you up which is exactly what is needed in times like these.

IRON COUNCIL

Men, I’m going to hit the pause button on my conversation with Greg because I want to talk with you about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council.

I’ve received several messages from Iron Council members over the past several months that have told me that the Iron Council has literally saved their life. And, although I won’t get into the specifics, it’s inspiring to me to know that the work we’re doing inside the brotherhood is getting men on the right track and back on the path to thriving and succeeding.

There are a lot of ways we facilitate this but for the sake of time, I’ll tell you that the two biggest factors that go into what we do inside the Iron Council is the framework and the network – the framework point you in the right direction and make the right moves and the network to keep you on track and give you the occasional kick in the ass when you need it.

The ability to accurately size someone up could spell the difference between life and death, whether you or the other guy gets the promotion, if that prospect purchases from you, or if she decides to date/marry you.

And, I can think of no better person to talk with us about predicting human behavior than Robin Dreeke, who spent more than two decades as a behavior analyst for the FBI. Today, we talk about being wary of trusting your gut, the difference between your gut and intuition, why if you’re betrayed by others you may have actually betrayed yourself, manipulation, judgment, how to predict human behavior, and why it matters.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Packaging human physiology
  • Developing relationships
  • Projecting blame
  • Emotional hijacking
  • It’s all about judging
  • You can’t please everybody
  • Positive manipulation
  • Situational awareness
  • Building muscle memory
  • When to trust your gut
  • Non-verbal body language
  • Detecting deception
  • Strategizing relationships
  • Identifying non-tangibles motives
  • Become a better leader

ROBIN DREEKE

My guest today is Robin Dreeke and he spent more than two decades as a behavior analyst for the FBI. He’s dealt with extremely complex situations from handling Russian spies to navigating the internal politics on the Bureau.

He’s written three books, It’s Not All About Me, The Code of Trust, and his latest, Sizing People Up where he shares a six-step system he developed to predict anyone’s behavior based on their words, goals, action, and situation.

This was such a fascinating discussion and one that if the lessons are applied, it will drastically improve every facet of your life.

IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, let me pause the conversation very quickly to talk with you about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council.

Membership in the Iron Council is up 15% over the past 2-3 weeks because men are beginning to see the value of banding with other strong, successful, like-minded men. And, that is exactly what you’re going to get when you band with us inside the Iron Council.

First, we’re going to help you identify your track to run on – not ours, but yours. And, once you have identified that track, we’re going to give you the framework, tools, and accountability to ensure that you stay the course until completion.

If you know there is more inside of you but don’t quite know how to unlock it, band with us, and we’ll show you exactly how to do it. You can learn more and lock in your spot at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

The truth is often uncomfortable. And, frankly, most of us aren’t willing to take a deep, hard look into what we know to be true. We do this because we’re afraid. Afraid of what we might see. Afraid of what it may expose in ourselves. Afraid of what the truth may require us to do moving forward.

My guest today is a friend and long-term mentor of mine. His name is Sean Whalen and one thing he’s been consistent about his desire to seek and share the truth. And, he’s revealed, for better and worse, some truths about myself that I was unwilling to acknowledge for a very long time. Today we talk about why some people despise the success of others, acknowledging what kind of men you need to become to achieve what you want, why most people are blissfully dissatisfied, and the power of embracing uncomfortable truths.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Producing results
  • Tearing others down
  • Identifying with pain
  • Building a physique
  • Addictive patterns
  • Breaking social contracts
  • Validating mediocrity
  • Change your circle
  • Habits & rituals
  • Implanting your vision
  • Loving yourself
  • Becoming a machine

 

SEAN WHALEN

My guest today is my good friend and long-term mentor, Sean Whalen. He has been instrumental in helping me build Order of Man into what it is but more importantly, me into who I am.

I don’t always agree with or, to a degree, get along with him but I believe that is the power of a coach and mentor – someone who you can respect but challenges you to look at life in a way that is difficult and uncomfortable.

And Sean certainly makes people feel uncomfortable. He says out loud what most people believe to be things you don’t say at all and, in the process, his videos and messages have been viewed hundreds of millions of times. Obviously, he’s a very polarizing man but he forces you to look at situations and events in new ways and has personally helped me achieve some incredible results in my life.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, let me pause the conversation very quickly. I’ve seen a tremendous uptick in new members in the Iron Council and I can only imagine the reason is that in times of uncertainty, men look to bring stability and order to the chaos.

And, that’s exactly what we’re doing inside the Iron Council – giving you the tools and framework to predictably and efficiently produce results in your life.

If you’re trying to start a business, rekindle a romantic relationship, connect with your kids, lose that spare tire, build wealth, become more influential, or any other goal that you may be working on, the Iron Council, has what you need to make it a reality.

When you join us, you’ll get the tools and framework you need to do what you’ve simply been daydreaming about for a very long time.

If you’re ready to get to work, join us. We’re not going to do it for you but we do have a track for you to run on and the accountability that comes from a brotherhood of loyal, committed, successful men.

Reason seems to be in increasingly short supply, which is unfortunate considering some of the messes we’ve found ourselves in will only be solved through reasonable thought, ideas, and people. Also unfortunate is that those who are the loudest seem to be the most unreasonable and only wish to perpetuate the problems we have in modern society and culture.

Today, I am joined by the one and only, Dave Rubin, New York Times Bestselling author of, Don’t Burn This Book: Thinking for Yourself in an Age of Unreason. What I like most about Dave and this conversation is that he’s willing to talk about the things you’re not “supposed” to talk about including the myth of the gender gap, why “hate speech” should be protected speech, why not everyone is a Nazi as perpetuated by what he calls, the “lefties,” and ultimately how to be reasonable in a world that seems to be anything but.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Moving towards equality
  • Governmental control
  • Consolidating power
  • Empirical truths
  • The human spirit
  • Valuing individuality
  • Protecting free speech
  • Classic Liberalism
  • Thinking for yourself
  • The best path forward
  • American privilege
  • Be the vocal majority

DAVE RUBIN

As I said before, my guest today is Dave Rubin and I’m sure many of you are already familiar with him and have some preconceived notions about who he is and what he stands for.

I’ve been following him for some time now and am fascinated with his journey from left-leaning progressive to a free-thinking classical liberal. He is the host of the Rubin Report and spent almost two years touring and opening for his friend and mentor, Jordan Peterson.

His background is in standup comedy but he has become extremely well-known for his podcast where he’s interviewed Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, Ben Shapiro, Larry King, Dan Crenshaw, Adam Carolla, and so many more.

Today, he’s here to talk with us about thinking freely and openly about some of our culture’s most polarizing subjects.

IRON COUNCIL

Gentlemen, let me hit the pause button on the conversation and introduce you to the Iron Council.

I am amazed by the growth we’ve been experiencing over the past several weeks and I believe it’s because men are beginning to see the value in banding with other men who have their back and want them to succeed.

If you were to strip away everything from the Iron Council, that’s what it’s all about – a band of brothers who will support, encourage, and hold you accountable. And, if you’re like most men, that isn’t something that you have in your life.

And, even if you do, the conversations stay on the surface and never get to the heart of what really matters and all that you’re trying to accomplish as a family man, business owner, and leader in your community.

If you’re ready to forge a powerful bond with like-minded men and chart the path that will lead you to where you want to go, I invite you to join the Iron Council at www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.

Hope is something most of us believe is a necessity in order to progress. Without it, would you be driven to do anything meaningful in your life? It’s hope that convinces you of potential rewards on the other side of your efforts. But what if the way you’ve been looking at hope isn’t help you but hindering? And, if that’s the case, is there a more practical, pragmatic way for you to approach hopefulness in a way that will serve you best?

That’s what today’s conversation is all about. I’m joined by New York Times Bestselling Author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and Everything is F*cked, Mark Manson. We talk about the uncomfortable truth few people are willing to admit to themselves, the difference between Master Morality and Slave Morality, how everyone is driven by what he calls, “a God Value,” how pain is the universal constant, and why, in the midst of everything being horrible, you can still have hope.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Getting through it together
  • The new normal
  • A need for certainty
  • Create a daily structure
  • The thinking brain
  • The process of maturity
  • Social accountability
  • Implementing habits
  • Finding new behavior
  • Shifting your perception
  • The uncomfortable truth
  • Gaining approval
  • The need for meaning
  • Sharing your story
  • Instinctual morality
  • Victimhood culture

MARK MANSON

My guest today is the one and only, Mark Manson, and it’s very likely that you are already very familiar with him, or at least, his last two books, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck and Everything is F*cked.

He is a New York Times Bestselling Author and a self-described thinker and life enthusiast. Part of the reason for his tremendous success is his no BS approach to self-development. In fact, that’s the reason why I follow him and his words closely. In an environment and popular culture designed to make everyone feel good about themselves, Mark would rather bring to light the uncomfortable truths few are willing to deal with.

Guys, I think you’re going to like this one as much as I enjoyed the conversation. So, sit back, take some notes, and listen to the way it really is.

IRON COUNCIL

Gents, our digital brotherhood, the Iron Council continues to grow in these uncertain times. I think that’s because it’s times like these that really cause us to reflect on the type of men we are and how we’re showing up.

For a long time, I knew that I was capable of so much more but it was frustrating knowing that there was a huge gap between what I knew I was capable of and what I was actually doing.

I started hiring mentors and surrounding myself with good and capable men and that’s when things really started to take a turn for the better.

The problem for most men is that they don’t know where connect with the type of men I’m talking about. That’s what the Iron Council is for and, without beating a dead horse about it, if you want to thrive in all aspects of your life, band with other men. It really is that powerful.

What does it take to exhibit extreme courage under fire? I wish I could tell you there was an exact formula for performing well under life and death pressure but there isn’t. But what I can tell you is that my guest today, Omar ‘Crispy’ Avila is a man who has done just that.

When in Iraq, his vehicle was hit by an IED sending it six feet in the air. I’m not going to ruin the story by telling you about the resulting fallout and how Crispy conducted himself but I will say you’re not going to want to miss it. We also talk about using humor as a way to calm a situation, overcoming survivor’s guilt, how to train properly for unknown events, and how every man can learn to develop courage under fire.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

  • Serving your community
  • Letting your guard down
  • Making light of a situation
  • Comedy as therapy
  • Joining the infantry
  • Moving forward in life
  • Laying down fire
  • Extended deployment
  • Losing faith in God
  • Keeping your composure
  • The Green Zone
  • Flying into Germany
  • Focus under chaos
  • Survivors guilt
  • The recovery process
  • Finding inner peace

OMAR ‘CRISPY’ AVILA

My guest today is Omar ‘Crispy’ Avila and he is a retired army combat veteran. But more than that he is someone who is extremely influential in the veteran community and has used his unfortunate circumstances to lift and inspire millions of people across the planet.

He sustained catastrophic damage to his body when his vehicle was hit with an IED and survived over 75% of his body burned and been rendered nearly blind.

I had the opportunity to meet him at SHOT Show several months ago and invited him to join us on the podcast because I have always been inspired by how he lives his life, uses humor with the Black Rifle Coffee Company team to inspire, and the kind of man he is.

PRIORITIZE AND EXECUTE

If you’re anything like me, it’s easy for you to fall into the trap of consumption. I mean, you’re listening to this podcast right now which can be beneficial but if you never apply any of what you learn, is it even useful?

This is the trap of the self-development space – consumption without production.

But in the Iron Council for the month of May, we’re talking about prioritizing the information you have and the objectives you’ve identified for yourself and putting them into action.

It’s about unpacking what you want to accomplish in your health, relationships, business, and life, identifying the “order of operations,” and putting in the work required to make it happen.

If you fall into “paralysis by analysis,” and often consume more than you produce, this is the month for you to band with 530 like-minded men who will help you accomplish more in the next 90 days than you ever have in a year.
