    Departure

    Departure

    This will be my final broadcast for the next several months. Thank you all for the support over the last year of this podcast. This episode marks the end of a significant chapter of my life, a chapter that I'm ready to close. After I return in April, the podcast will resume and a new story will begin. Over the next few months, keep my lessons in mind. I believe they will help you on your path through life.
    Stay strong. Stay Heroic. Make us proud.

    Enemies

    Enemies

    As children, we are taught that having enemies is something that should be avoided. We are taught to avoid conflict and seek peace. Though this may be true to a certain extent, we have forgotten that the world is full of enemies. Whether or not we like to admit it, we will always have enemies. So why not embrace this fact? Nothing defines a man more than his enemies. With enemies, man is forced to bolden himself. Through the defeat of his enemies he will find glory and respect.
    In this episode, I speak about the importance of enemies and why having enemies is a gift.

    Burn The Boats

    Burn The Boats

    The conquistador Hernan Cortés was faced with a problem while in Mexico. His men, nearly 500 strong, lacked total commitment to their mission of locating and conquering Tenochtitlán, the capital of the Aztec empire. After some time, Cortés finally identified the problem. The problem was the boats that laid within their harbor. These boats represented Cuba, their families and most importantly...a way out. Knowing the boats were always in the harbor, the soldiers would never fight with the vigor the mission required. So, Cortés was faced with no choice...he destroyed the boats. From there on, the conquistadors stood on "Death Ground", and was forced to fight and win like their lives depended on it.
    Sometimes in life, we must do the same. We must burn the boats of safety and comfort in order to grow and develop as humans. Only when we realize that our backs are against the wall; that there are no boat home, can we really begin to fight for what we want.

    The King's Grail

    The King's Grail

    We all search for the holy grail within our own minds. This is the place of peace, happiness, and beauty, free from our depression, anxieties, and suffering. We think this quest for the grail takes place in the outward world but this is a mistake. Through drugs, sex, technology; we hope to obtain the power of the grail and always fail. Where does one find the castle that holds this grail? Why cant our king not drink from the grail? For whom does the grail serve?

    The Warrior's Spirit

    The Warrior's Spirit

    For many of us, The Warrior's Spirit still burns hot in our bellies. This fire is currently being quenched by modern society through conditioning, medications, and shame. This is my message to those who still feel the fire in their bellies. Do not give up. The world will need you once again.

    The Happiness Myth

    The Happiness Myth

    Our idea of happiness has been sucked into it's negative. Many are fooled into believing that cars, houses, gadgets, and money will make us ultimately happy. This is an evil lie that, at one point in time, I believed. In this episode, I will describe my opinion on happiness and how one actually obtains it. 
    Side note: I understand that happiness is somewhat subjective but for the most part, true happiness is universally obtained the same way.
