    Today’s episode focuses heavily on the mindset side of things. It’s 

    been three months since I ran through the Arctic and just over a year 

    since I ran six back to back marathons in the Sahara Desert. Both of 

    those challenges thought me so much about how to be in other areas 

    of my life. My personal relationships, my business, and my happiness 

    levels are the best they’ve ever been and I put nearly all of it down to 

    the 10 lessons I’ve learned below so I wanted to share them. This is 

    another ‘press record and talk’ video so I hope you enjoy it. 


    1.You need to break big goals into smaller parts  


    2.Pain is temporary and it will go away  


    3.You need to build the mental strength slowly every day 


    4.All limitations are self-created  


    5.Your own worst enemy lives between your two ears  







     









     
     
     
     
     

     







    6.You can’t do things for other people, it needs to be for you and 

    you alone  


    7.People put what you do on a pedestal and they shouldn’t!  


    8.If you fail to prepare. Prepare to fail.  


    9.You can’t give yourself the option to quit or you will take it!  


    10.See it, believe it, achieve. Become who you need to be, act 

    like that and wait for reality to catch up.

Best podcast out there

I’m my opinion this is the best podcast out there for fitness, nutrition and mindset. So informative and I love when Brian does a deep dive into specific topics.

Mandistilltrying ,

A great listen

Always informative and a great listen. Brian has a “ normal” person view on the world and doesn’t preach from a pedestal. He chooses the guests that can add real value to everyday life.

I’ve been listening to Brian’s podcasts for a few years now and I can honestly say the information I have gotten from it has been a life changer, whether that be through Brian himself or through one of excellent guests he hosts on the podcast. Would recommend everybody listen to these shows!
