    • Society & Culture

High performance psychologist and thought leader, Dr. Michael Gervais, joins The BRINK OF MIDNIGHT Podcast with John Brenkus.   What is greatness? What is mastery? Today’s guest, Mike Gervais, has spent a career helping people, especially elite athletes, coaches, business leaders, and organizations achieve their absolute best. He's worked with the Seattle Seahawks, Pete Carroll, Kerri Walsh Jennings, Felix Baumgartner, Luke Aikins, among many others. His fascination with what he calls the "razor's edge" is contagious and he reminds us how essential it is to find what that means for us in terms of developing our unique minds, ability to focus, and approach to organizing our days.   Mike helps us dismantle the idea of simply "doing more" as a measure of success and breaks down what it means to cultivate happiness and meaning in every moment. He believes there is equal power in every moment and that we can either pay attention to the "noise" of life around us or develop an orientation to our unique "signal".   We peel back the layers and psychology of social media in terms of it's dangers and our unpreparedness as a society when it comes to the temporary pleasures and darkness that can come from how we engage with it.   We talk about thoughts, their weight, origin, and impact, and how our thoughts can help shape our collective human experience. We dive into the details and impact of brain waves, creativity, letting go, and re-centering.   Both being family men, we also tap into the struggle of creating equilibrium as a parent, professional, and game changer and playing all roles equally or in the most impactful and fulfilling way.   This episode is so chalk full of wisdom and insight that you can implement into your life today…right now. Grab your journal or note-taking app and get ready for a master class courtesy of Dr. Mike!   For full show notes and more episodes, visit: www.brinkofmidnight.com | Contact: info@brinkofmidnight.com | Connect: @brinkofmidnight across socials
