Every single one of us has genius inside of us – some lying dormant for years and even decades. And, with our greatest potential trapped deep beneath the surface of our day-to-day lives, we live as Thoreau famously said, “quiet lives of desperation.” I know from personal experience how difficult and deflating that can be.

My guest today, former rocket scientist and law professor, Ozan Varol, is on the podcast today to talk about how to unlock and awaken the genius buried deep within ourselves. We also talk about the power of going what he refers to as “off-menu,” finding more awe in our lives, the death or our former selves and the birth of a new man, why we all need to exercise a bit more skeptical curiosity, and how to become extraordinary men.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Leaving a tenured position in academia
  • If you don’t like the available options, create a new one
  • Know when its time to change course
  • Most people don’t know what they want
  • What served us well in the past won’t necessarily serve us well in the future
  • Don’t get stuck in the self-reflection process
  • Learning from failures
  • Don’t compare your beginning to someone else’s end
  • The importance of your inner journey
  • Identifying what makes you unique

You already know everything you need to know to achieve your wildest dreams, or at least get on the path to making them a reality. The only question that remains is whether or not you’ll do it. And, that’s a question that has been plaguing millions of men for a very long time – “Will I do what is required to achieve my desires?”

My guest today, former NBA player and current NBA mindset coach, David Nurse, has made a life out of teaching elite-level athletes, execs, and high-achievers how to move from knowing to doing. Today, David and I talk about hidden roadblocks that keep us from success, the 9 different action archetypes and how to move past what keeps you back, the formula for your own success mission, finding intrinsic value in the work you do, why he considers, “the masses to be the asses,” how to use negative thoughts to your advantage, and the life-changing power of taking action.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Where to start on the path to taking action
  • We live in an excuse laden society
  • Uncertainty is an opportunity
  • Find your niche to stand out
  • Focus on the process, not the result
  • How does one become “driven”
  • Being content AND ambitious
  • Alignment with God
  • We take care of the things we value
  • Being comfortable in your own skin

It’s been said that there isn’t a whole lot of new information under the sun, just new ways of saying it. I don’t know if that’s necessarily true but one thing I know is that my guest today shares some of the most practical and life-transforming messages out there. And, he does it in a way that cuts through the noise and nonsense of modern times.

His name is Dewayne Noel and he is the founder of Dry Creek Wrangler School. Today, Dewayne and I talk about the power of genuineness, building yourself into a person you like, not hate, why the “right to be wrong” is so powerful and liberating, dealing with insecurities, operating in reality, the concept of “cowboy energy,” and other timeless wisdom in disturbing times.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Why a simple, timeless message resonates so strongly
  • Sometimes you have to change how you are sharing the message in order to be effective
  • Change starts with us
  • We have to get to the point where we like ourselves
  • Cost/benefit analysis of relationships in our life
  • Loyalty is not a one-way street
  • Staying loyal to the “idea” of a relationship can be destructive
  • The market determines what is valuable
  • Rodeo energy vs. cowboy energy
