Most of us never learned how to train our brains, which is why most of us needlessly settle, struggle and worse – suffer. My name is Chris Dorris and I want to make Brain Training mainstream. This is my series TOUGH TALKS: Conversations on Mental Toughness.
I’m interviewing badasses from all walks of life, on what Mental Toughness means to them, and their unique approaches to strengthening their mind. For videos, visit http://bit.ly/tough-talks

    TOUGH TALKS - E054 - Cracking the Coconut with Ankush Jain

    Ankush is wizardly smart. And funny. He reminds us that stress is NOT our default state - that we must learn to stress ourselves out, in fact. And he teaches us how to begin the process of "cracking the coconut" or breaking open our faulty beliefs that would have us feel stress in the first place.

    TOUGH TALKS - E053 - Busy is Lazy with Craig Gore

    TOUGH TALKS - E053 - Busy is Lazy with Craig Gore

    You heard it. He said it. “Busy is Lazy!”

    Craig is a recovered workaholic turned Freedom Coach. He’ll explain what he means by all of that.

    In the meantime, suffice it to say, if you feel like your life is too “busy” (who does that apply to?!) have a listen to this cat.

    TOUGH TALKS - E051 - MENTAL TOUGHNESS AND RACISM: STARTING WITH SAME

    TOUGH TALKS - E051 - MENTAL TOUGHNESS AND RACISM: STARTING WITH SAME

    This week I have decided to switch it up a bit by flying solo. In other words, our Tough Talks guest today is me. I felt particularly compelled to share with my Tough Talks Tribe some thoughts I've been having recently on the relationship between Mental Toughness Training (aka, Emotional Mastery Training) and racism.  

    My content is my legacy in this life. It will live on long after I have returned to the non-local realm. And it is my sincere wish that this particular episode of Tough Talks becomes obsolete (at least the parts of it that are specific to learned racism) because racism has been completely eradicated from the planet.   

    I hope you find value in these thoughts and I would love to hear from you if you have any contribution, reaction, ideas, insights, opinions, rebuttals, questions, or thoughts of any nature on this.

    TOUGH TALKS - E050 - Mental Toughness Marine Style With Robby Dinero

    To Robby Dinero Mental Toughness is doing what needs to be done regardless of circumstance.   

    "Pain isn't the problem," he says. "Your thinking that it's a problem is the problem, so suck it up!" And he offers us specifics on precisely HOW to "suck it up."  

    This dude is deep, intense, and cool as hell. You're gonna be mesmerized by him.

    Tough Talks - E049 - The Grace of Cancer with Veronica Villanueva

    Tough Talks - E049 - The Grace of Cancer with Veronica Villanueva

    "Sweetie, you have cancer. Stage 4 lung cancer. And you have 6 months to live."  



    That's not an uncommon story. But the way that "V" chose to respond to it is a powerful lesson not only to anyone who is fighting an illness, but also to us ALL on how to choose to live - really live.
