This solo-cast dives further into Post-Traumatic Growth (PTG), Cognitive Bias, and Tactical Breathing. Recapping a variety of recent experiences and opening up about failures, we cover vulnerability with and commitment to teammates and talk about emotional control.

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

– Michael Jordan

Listen through this episode and you’ll walk away with two breathing techniques for daily and situational use that I’ve learned as a Coach-in-Training with Unbeatable Mind – a set of tools and training methods that combine ancient wisdom practices with cutting edge modern methods to help you develop as a complete person. The framework was developed by retired 20 year Navy SEAL Commander Mark Divine, based on his experiences as a Navy SEAL, Martial Artist, Yoga and Meditation Teacher, and adjunct professor of Leadership.

You’ll also get hints on self-awareness and emotional control in conflict, examples of and takeaways from growth through adversity, and where to start and how to measure your own pursuit of mastery.

“There is no education like adversity.”

– Benjamin Disraeli
