Every one of us has experienced trauma of some sort in our lives. Some more challenging scenarios than others. But it does no good to compare our own circumstances with others, only what those who seem to be able to manage and work past the difficulties of life can teach us.

Combat Rescue Helicopter Pilot, Lt. Colonel Brian Slade joins me on today to talk about strategies he’s learned and developed for overcoming some of the worst scenarios he and others have overcome in their lives. We discuss the concept of “chair flying” as a method for anticipating and preparing for traumatic events, the difference between those who adapt to challenge and those who don’t, why we as men need to wrap our heads around “operating in the ugly,” overcoming festering emotional wounds, and how to triumph over trauma.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • “Just get over it” its not great advice
  • Stress inoculation and “chair flying”
  • Gratitude and perspective
  • Don’t mistake the gunfight (finite) for the mountains (infinite)
  • Perspective creates your reality
  • Always have an honorable mission
  • The only way out is through

Child sex trafficking literally permeates every corner of the globe. It’s despicable, it’s nasty, and it’s a growing trend, even in 2023. Where most men recognize problems in this world, few are willing to put their own careers and lives on the line to create solutions.

My guest today is built different. His name is Tim Ballard and he is the founder of Operation Underground Railroad which exists to rescue children from dangerous and despicable sex rings. Today, we talk about what a truly compassionate border policy would look like, the hyper-sexualization of the world and the degeneracy it leads to, how unintended policy incentives often make problems worse, why evil lurks behind the concept of tolerance, and his latest film uncovering the underground child sex trade, Sound of Freedom.

 

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The U.S. is one of the top consumers of child sexual material
  • Open borders are contributing to the problem
  • Its not easy to profile child sexual predators
  • Pornography is a gateway
  • Sex work is the antithesis of feminism
  • When is government intervention appropriate
  • Media standing in the way of fighting child trafficking
  • The process of finding traffickers
  • The Sound of Freedom

Trust is something all of us know we need to build in order to have influence with those we love and whom we’re called to lead. But it’s also incredibly difficult to build and even harder to repair once you’ve undermined it. And, unfortunately, as challenging as it is to build, it’s incredibly easy to tear apart never to be seen again.

My guest today is Dr. Henry Cloud, author of his latest book, Trust: Knowing When to Give It, When to Withhold It, How to Earn It, and How to Fix It When It Gets Broken. We talk about trust being a learned skill, the process for repairing trust, 5 factors that drive the trust system, trust as a long game vs. a short game, and how trust fuels every single aspect of life.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS:

 

  • The importance of having in-person conversations
  • Creating a safe environment for those around us
  • Five steps to building trust
  • We need to know that people have our back
  • The way we say things matters
  • We need to become good at something
  • Behave your way back into trust
  • Breaking down trust barriers
  • Building trust can take longer than we want it to
  • Life is giving us a 360 review all the time…if we’re listening
  • Be intentional with the patterns we develop

Many of us have been in some horrible circumstances. Between war, rioting, home invasion, active-shooter situations, natural disasters, civil unrest, and more, it’s becoming increasingly common to find ourselves in life and death struggles. We must not be unprepared for when that day arrives.

We discuss his latest book, Prepared, increasing risk tolerance, fortifying your home and equipping your vehicle, the importance of self-discipline, paranoia and the Law of Diminishing Returns, peacocking for safety, policing each other, and surviving worst case scenarios.
