    15: Nothing Good Comes From Comfort

    15: Nothing Good Comes From Comfort

     “Partnerships are hard. And the part that pushes and pulls is the thing that makes the beauty.” - Ryan Heuser(click to tweet)  Comfort has its time and place. 
    But more often than not, we overdose on it— eating temptation foods, binge-watching TV shows, and snoozing our alarm clocks instead of waking up to seize the day. 
    When we rewire our receptors to view comfort as a bad thing—we start to embrace the process. Struggles at work, challenges in relationships, moments of inner turmoil—these all become opportunities to develop new muscles, learn more about ourselves, and find solutions to the puzzle of life. 
    On today’s episode of the Life Uncharted Podcast, we are joined by Ryan Heuser to discuss his relationship with comfort. Ryan is the founder of the athletic brand—Athletic Recon, and previously co-founder of Paul Frank Industries. He's been a featured speaker for Tedx, appeared on MSNBC, FOX Business and has been covered by Vanity Fair, Wall Street Journal and his personal favorite, Runner’s World.

    “Life’s not a straight line. It’s winding paths.” - Ryan Heuser(click to tweet)
    Points to Keep In MindThough not the easiest path to live, understand nothing good happens when you’re comfortableCollaborate well by cherish the push and pull of the partnershipMore times than not, you will make the right decision when you lead with authenticityThe hardest decisions require putting your ego aside Seek real human-to-human contact by spending time in the rural parts of the world

    14: What Happens When A Navy SEAL Writes A Novel

    14: What Happens When A Navy SEAL Writes A Novel

    “It’s a game of constant adaptation and whoever does that faster usually ends up on top.” - Jack Carr

    Everyone has a unique life story. 
    But very few of us actually take the time to tell it. Instead, we go to our jobs and rise in our careers without writing that book that we’ve always dreamt of in the backs of our heads. 
    On today’s episode of the Life Uncharted Podcast, we are joined by author and Navy SEAL—Jack Carr. Jack led special operations teams as a Team Leader, Platoon Commander, Troop Commander and Task Unit Commander. Over his 20a years in Naval Special Warfare he transitioned from an enlisted SEAL sniper specializing in communications and intelligence, to a junior officer leading assault and sniper teams in Iraq and Afghanistan, to a platoon commander practicing counterinsurgency in the southern Philippines, to commanding a Special Operations Task Unit in the most Iranian influenced section of southern Iraq throughout the tumultuous drawdown of U.S. Forces.

    “Looking back, BUD/S is one of the easiest things you do on the SEALs teams. Your responsibility is to show up at the right time, at the right place, with the right gear, and not quit. That’s it.” - Jack Carr

    Evaluate the ‘teamability’ in your prospective collaboratorsIndividual challenges of mental toughness are distinctly easier than the challenges that come with other peopleWhoever adapts faster usually ends up on topToday’s author needs to excel on social media in addition to the quality of his/her writingWhen writing fiction, apply your own emotional experience to the narrativeIn Japanese bushido, a samurai would go into battle already thinking he was deadAccept that news and media outlets choose specific stories, while recognizing there’s more to the story

    It’s no secret that Western medicine provides a band-aid to the problem.
    Pharmaceutical drugs have side effects—we’ve all seen commercials with the ending disclaimer, “You may experience nausea, fatigue, dizziness, constipation, muscle ache.”
    So, for treating our medical issues, we must seek out other options.
    On today’s episode of the Life Uncharted Podcast, we are joined by Brandon Harshberger, the CEO of Cannabliss Labs, to discuss the benefits of CBD. The therapeutic benefits of CBD are becoming increasingly validated by science, and with that has come increased awareness and acceptance of CBD in mainstream culture.
    Listen to this episode to hear Brandon’s insights on all things related to CBD, internet marketing, and technological evolution.

    “The status quo is too easy to maintain.” - Brandon Harshberger

    It’s more expensive to get eyeballs on a cannabis product than a tobacco productContrary to popular belief, hemp is a non-psychoactive marijuana plantCBD medicines can take children with epilepsy from 100 seizures/day to 1-2 seizures/dayThe Steve Jobs vs. Elon Musk debate boils down to communication vs. saving the worldWe overestimate what we can do in one year and underestimate what we can do in 10Customers respond better when you are ahead of their problems, coming to them before they come to youThere are no side effects to CBD other than nausea if taken on an empty stomach

    12: Why Kindness Is Most Important

    “Kindness pays dividends. People will come to your rescue if you treat them right.” - Charles Nelson

    The average person today has more access to education than ever before.
    Podcasts, how-to videos, audiobooks—every piece of curriculum for any topic imaginable is instantly available at all times on our smartphones. And with smarter people comes more complex relationships. What might have worked in getting a promotion 10 years ago is now recognized as an outdated school of thought. This is why we must return to the foundation of connection—kindness.
    On today’s episode of the Life Uncharted Podcast, we are joined by my grandfather, Charles Nelson. Among the many things Chuck has done in his life, here are few noteworthy highlights: he met Albert Einstein, was drafted into the Korean War, has a photographic memory, and lived through depressions. Professionally, he helped start Jennie-O Foods, which was acquired by Hormel Foods for nearly $350 million in 2001.
    Listen to this episode to hear Chuck’s insights on all aspects of life, from parenting to coaching to staying focused on your goals!

    Music doesn’t have to mean instruments and a stage.
    A conversation has rhythm, tone, and melody—and in our day-to-day, we often find ourselves inside complex dialogues. Whether it’s navigating the workplace or managing our relationships at home, the people around us have instruments that, if called upon, would help transform any challenging situation into a harmony.
    On today’s episode of the Life Uncharted Podcast, we are joined by Prince’s drummer, Michael Bland, to discuss all things related to the human soul, making music, and connection with others. Michael has played drums with all the biggest names in music, but his insights on life are what separate him from the rest of the competition.
    Listen to this episode to hear how Michael approaches his artistic passions, so that you can apply the same mindset to your own unique pursuit.
     

    “Almost all of the best art is putting other people’s needs before your own.” - Michael Bland

    Points to Keep In Mind
    To prepare for the unpredictability of life, seek out opportunities that force you to think on the spotBe mindful of those around you who are delivering backhanded inspirationUnderstand that people will get what they want at the end of the dayYour true identity doesn’t lie anywhere inside your mindSuccess happens when you’re in alignment with who you areChange your vibration/tone of yourself, and people will gravitate towards you and others will go awayMany artists describe it as wading in the same body of water, trying to find that universal consciousnessNotice who you have a reverential fear of, based off knowing their talents (what they’re capable of)

    We can practice night and day.
    Whether it’s athletics or business, taking the time to run through the motions before the big event is inevitable. We chalk this up as practice or rehearsal, but is it actually moving us closer to our desired goal? By engaging in visualization exercises, we can actually simulate that big moment before it actually happens.
    On today’s episode of the Life Uncharted Podcast, we are joined by Greg Bennett to discuss the benefits of this practice. Greg is a professional triathlete, who has won 6 World Cup titles, and in 2002 and 2003, Greg was the #1 ranked triathlete in the world. Today, Greg lives in Boulder, CO with his wife Laura, who is also a professional triathlete.
    Listen to this episode to learn how to apply Greg’s visualization techniques to your own passion, so you can perform at the world-class results he achieved.

    “God gave me a gift. That I actually feel comfortable sitting at a 175 heart rate. I enjoy that threshold.” - Greg Bennett

    Points to Keep In Mind
    Seek out real-world experiences over formal education to maximize learningPrioritize sleep and recovery to get the most out of yourselfSeek out mentors who walk the walk, rather than preaching from afarPrepare for the moment by engaging in visualization exercisesAsk yourself profound questions, like ‘who do you think are?’ and ‘what do you want?’Pursuit of your passions should most primarily be for yourselfUse the lows as opportunities to find insights that propel you back into the highs
