Failure, setbacks, f-ups, and mess ups are all part of life. It’s just part of the human condition. When most people fail, they choose to stay there. But in failure, there is a redemption story in the works…if you’re willing to make it happen.

My guest today is intimately familiar with failing and getting back in the fight – both literally and figuratively. His name is George Foreman and everyone is likely familiar with him from being heavyweight champion of the world (twice) to his infamous George Foreman Grill. You may not know the rest of the story. Today, George and I talk about the comeback story, his near-death experience and how it changed him, serving in your community and giving others hope, and making the most of second chances.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • Feeling empty despite success
  • Finding contentment by finding God
  • A change of identity
  • Just be present
  • From street fighter to Olympic boxer
  • Overcoming anger

We’ve all heard of Stoicism. But do we really know what it means, how to implement in our lives, and whether or not it conflicts with other doctrine we may ascribe to – mainly Christianity.

My guest today, Brady Pesola, and I strive to answer those questions as we discuss the four cardinal virtues of Stoicism – wisdom, courage, justice, and temperance. We also unpack what Stoicism really means (and, contrary to popular belief, it is not the suppression of emotions), how philosophy is the “love of wisdom,” why anxiety is not inherently bad, the power in knowing that others are allowed to feel the way they do, and, ultimately, going to bed a better man than you woke up.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The concept of accountability
  • Accountability with your spouse
  • Anxious vs. avoidant
  • Doing the right thing
  • Stoicism and christianity
  • Put your mind in “reason”
  • Intellectual intent
  • Sometimes we misread situations
  • The importance of context
  • Reason and faith
  • Overcoming the dumb things we say
  • Stoicism and the Bible
  • Listening to the philosophy of others

With the proliferation of political and cultural ideologies increasingly permeating many of our favorite companies and brands, it’s becoming difficult to justify spending our hard-earned dollars on companies that do not align with our values and actively work against them.

But you know as well as I do, boycotting only goes so far and, as soon as the excitement and fervor against these companies wear off, most people go back to spending their money on Budweiser, Disney, Gillette, and Netflix to name a few. My guests today, Nicky Billou and Wayne Allyn Root make the case that not only should people boycott these organizations but create alternatives to compete with these companies and hit them where it hurts – their wallet. Today, we talk about racism and the flawed idea of “reverse racism,” something they call, the “Freedom Scale,” for evaluating organizations that align with conservative values, the line between liberalism and leftism, and the power of parallel economies.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • “Reverse racism” is just “racism”
  • We can no longer not stand up
  • Are we just preaching to the choir
  • Understanding the concept of a “national divorce”
  • Liberal democrat cities are falling apart
  • Building a parallel economy
  • Chinese interference in elections
  • Breaking down the “Freedom Scale”
  • Companies caving to liberal pressure

We all have standards but for most of us, our standards aren’t where they should be and/or they’re not the type of standards that will lead us toward becoming the type of men we have desire to be. And, yet, each and every day, we operate by these standards most of which is subconscious.

 

My guest today is an incredible performance coach and while that term gets tossed around a lot these days, Ben Newman is the real deal. In fact, he coaches many Fortune 500 companies, is one of the top 50 public speakers in the world, and has helped lead many college and professional athletes to multiple championships.

Today, Ben and I talk about why it’s important you know you’re setting an example to people, how to find what he calls, your “burn,” grabbing your future and bringing it into today, why “your why” is not enough, how to avoid being seduced by success, and, ultimately, how to elevate your standard.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Why do we make excuses?
  • We tend to overlook the simple things
  • Be your best one day at a time
  • The importance of coaching
  • You have to do the work if you want to see change
  • The way you do one thing is the way you do everything
  • Be prepared to attack the process
  • Don’t be seduced by success
  • Identifying the right standards
  • Become disciplined, even when you cheat
