Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

Will lessons learned behind the desk transfer to physical challenges? This week’s guest says yes! When you stop climbing corporate ladders, what do you climb next? For Vanessa O’Brien the answer is almost everything! The more difficult the better. She applied what she learned in the challenging environment of the Fortune 500 to the natural environment in a dramatic way. The extreme conditions taught her valuable lessons about happiness and success. Growing up, she was thrust into a challenging situation as well. Learn how O’Brien has combined all these life lessons into a satisfying and productive life.

Lessons:

1. Three S’s of success: speed, simplicity and self confidence apply as well on the mountain as behind the desk.


2. Try something new, make a change, you can always go back.


3. You will fail, don’t panic. It just means you’re going to succeed.

What’s the point? Is it money? Is it something more? Roman gathers today’s most influential icons and leaders to do what’s NBDB (Never Been Done Before.) How can we drive culture in a positive direction? Roman Tsunder thinks he’s found a way. In this episode, he explains his mission with PTTOW (Plan To Take On the World) and WORLDZ, and tells Joe how he carved out success from rejection. When he received 73 rejection letters in response to 72 applications, it just meant “yes” must be coming soon. Hear his story and how he now works to shape our world. Lessons: 1. Don’t just preach to those that agree, reach out to the unindoctrinated.
 2. The lowest points in your life can be the greatest pillars for growth.
 3. To be the best, cultivate a healthy obsession for what you do.

Dan Pena is an F-ing maniac! He lives in a castle in Scotland, has run ultra-marathons, has made and lost fortunes, never uses a cell phone and his motto is just F-ing do it (obviously). He’s a living contradiction. He speaks at Oxford but you can still hear the echoes of his gritty upbringing on the streets of East L.A. in his voice. He can dance the waltz, play tennis and golf, but you wouldn’t want to mess with him. He knows how to make money, fast. And he’ll tell you and you had better listen to him.  

Lessons:  

1. Whatever gives you confidence, do that.


2. Indecision is the worst decision,


3. Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.
