    149 - How To Discover Your Ikigai - The Path to a Meaningful Existence with Gregory Benedikt

    149 - How To Discover Your Ikigai - The Path to a Meaningful Existence with Gregory Benedikt

    Life Coach Gregory Russell Benedikt returns to the show to discuss Ikigai, a Japanese philosophy that encompasses passion, vocation, profession, and mission, to illuminate the path toward purposeful living. 

    We navigate through the complexities of personal fulfillment, societal expectations, and the pervasive "purpose gap" affecting many men today.
    We address the notion that passion, purpose, and income must always align perfectly, advocating instead for a more holistic approach to finding meaning in life. 

    Through candid anecdotes and expert insights, we uncover the iterative journey of discovering one's Ikigai and shed light on the toll that a lack of direction can take, particularly among young men.
    Moreover, we emphasize the significance of heart-centered connections in both personal and professional spheres, recognizing their pivotal role in fostering growth and fulfillment. By addressing the challenges of the male malaise through the lens of Ikigai, we aim to inspire listeners to embark on their own journey toward purpose and meaningful living.

    147 - From Entitled to Empowered: Why Our Kids Need Healthy Struggles with Lee Benson

    147 - From Entitled to Empowered: Why Our Kids Need Healthy Struggles with Lee Benson

    Every parent loves their kids. They want to protect them from pain and give them all the opportunities and comforts they never had growing up. But by removing certain struggles, parents may unknowingly jeopardize their children’s future.
    What if you could give your kids a superpower to ensure their success outside the home? A lens to see the world in such a way that everything they encounter can be turned into something valuable for themselves and others. A true antidote that protects your kids against becoming victims, spoiled, anxious, fearful, lazy, or entitled.

    Have you ever considered how the power of struggle could be harnessed to create value? Lee presents his inspiring story of overcoming adversity, showcasing how the crucible of tough circumstances can forge the valuable attributes of hard work and self-reliance. We also discuss the potential of entrepreneurship as a launchpad for children to discover their own value-creation superpowers. Drawing on personal experiences, such as selling a business and moving to a new country, we highlight the crucial role of struggle and hard work in shaping a satisfying and successful life.

    Lee Benson has over 25 years of experience as a CEO. He owned and led Able Aerospace, then sold it for 9-figures to Textron Aviation. Next, he founded Execute to Win (ETW) to help senior leadership teams experience similar results by working better together at improving their organization’s most important number. Today, his operating system is used by businesses all over the world. Lee lives in Arizona where he leads ETW, plays guitar, reads, exercises, and spends time with those that matter most.

    145 - How To Overcome Immeasurable Stress Through Emotional Resilience with Kevin Borg

    145 - How To Overcome Immeasurable Stress Through Emotional Resilience with Kevin Borg

    Have you ever considered the profound impact emotional intelligence has on the front lines of military and law enforcement? Join me as I sit down with Kevin, a former British Army soldier and police officer of Maltese descent, who shares his compelling story about navigating the complexities of emotional awareness amid the strictures of military life. He candidly recounts the personal battles with racism, the struggle for identity, and the pivotal role emotions play in situations where resilience is not just a trait but a necessity.

    Our conversation takes a deep look into the heart of the armed forces, where the balance between combat readiness and the softer skills of human interaction are being recalibrated. Kevin gives us a rare glimpse into the changing face of the British Army, particularly the new Ranger unit, where mental health and emotional intelligence are becoming as crucial as physical prowess. In the same breath, we explore the shift from the battlefield to the beat as Kevin reflects on his subsequent career in the police force. He illustrates how empathy and effective communication are vital tools for de-escalation and maintaining order, especially when physical force is not an option.

    Finally, we touch on the essence of leadership through the lens of emotional intelligence. Kevin's personal tales of facing severe stress, including the grave illness of his wife and the loss of his mother, underscore the critical need for supportive networks and the courage found in vulnerability. Our discussion extends towards a vision for transformed uniformed services across Europe, with leadership that marries the rigor of discipline with the nurturing of psychological safety. The 2011 UK riots serve as a stark reminder of why adaptable and emotionally intelligent leadership is indispensable in today's volatile world. Tune in for a journey that promises to challenge your perceptions and perhaps change the way you view those who serve and protect.
