    "Unintentionally we get in our own way…  It's all about getting out of your own way and letting your body do what it's perfectly capable of doing already." ~ Nick Wignall 

    ABOUT THE GUEST: 



    Nick is a clinical psychologist, writer, teacher, and podcaster. Everything he write about comes down to one big principle: Emotional health comes from good habits, not just nice ideas. In the same way that the body relies on healthy habits and exercise to stay fit and strong, emotional health depends on good habits of mind. It’s popular to talk about emotional intelligence but what Nick is really interested in is emotional fitness.


    Nick did his doctoral training in clinical psychology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Prior to that, Nick earned his Master’s in Social Sciences from the University of Chicago and a Bachelor’s in English Literature from the University of Dallas.


    He is board certified by the American Board of Professional Psychology, a Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy, as well as a member of the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.

    "Vulnerability comes from the heart and this recognition that we are flawed." ~ Mark Divine


    ABOUT THE GUEST:


    Mark Divine is an expert in human performance as it is displayed in mental toughness, leadership and physical readiness. His work is based on an integral warrior-leader model that he developed and tested on over a thousand special operations candidates worldwide. The integrated training, which involves physical, mental, emotional, intuitional and spiritual training, has resulted in over a 90% success rate for the Spec Ops candidates. It is now taught to executives and corporate teams, tops sports teams, top athletes, professionals, first responders and warriors from all walks of life.


    Mark is the founder and leader of several highly successful enterprises including SEALFIT (Physical and mental training), Unbeatable Mind, LLC (Executive Mastery Development), NavySEALs.com and USCrossFit. He also co-founded the Coronado Brewing Company in Coronado, CA.


    SEALFIT developed out of the Navy's SEAL candidate Mentoring program, which took the pass rate for Navy SEAL candidates from 33% to over 80% on the Physical Screening Test at Navy Boot Camp. This program was instrumental in helping the Navy grow the size and quality of the SEAL force.


    Mark's other professional experience includes 20 years as a Navy SEAL officer, retiring as a Commander in 2011. Also 4 years as a CPA with the firm now known as PriceWaterhouseCoopers prior to his joining the Navy. As a reserve SEAL he led several prominent projects, including the Navy's internal study on whether to support the invitation of USMC into the Special Operations Command.


    Mark served as Adjunct Professor of Leadership at the University of San Diego and has authored four books: "The Way of the SEAL," published by Reader's Digest Publishing, "8 Weeks to SEALFIT" and "Kokoro Yoga" by St. Martin's Press, "Unbeatable Mind" and the "SEALFIT Training Guide," both self-published.
