Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

Two hundred fractures before the age of 18 from a rare bone disease involuntarily made Sean Stephenson an expert in navigating through pain and adversity. But, he insists, it wasn’t the disability that made him a better person, but the choices he made despite it. He is an advocate of working on all aspects of the self, everyday. In this episode, Stephenson talks about how to distinguish good pain from bad and to invite the former into your life while extinguishing the latter. Good pain tends to disappear with achievement, while the bad lingers on if we’re not careful.

Lessons:

1. You can only save those who swim towards you.


2. The cure for insecurity is self care.


3. Your life runs better when your mind, body and spirit are clean.

To be your best, get still. In this episode Onnit wellness company founder, Aubrey Marcus, explains why this is not a paradox. Nor, he says, is it contradictory to say that to optimize yourself and your mission you need to focus on others, or to overcome obstacles you need to seek them out. Marcus will guide you through the contrasts in life to highlight your warrior spirit. He is tooled by the example of high achieving parents, shamans and philosophers and is setting a worthy precedent in his own life.

Lessons:

1. Get still or quiet enough to be able to discern your mission in life.


2. To the ordinary person everything is  a blessing or a curse; to the warrior there are only challenges.


3. Being open to whatever can be helpful is the way to find mastery.

Your life is a story, that means it can be re-written. A profound childhood loneliness prompted Jeff Gomez to seek solace in story which in turn connected him back to people and became his livelihood. His storytelling skills have been put to use by the media giants and even the US Government. His method of storytelling, inspired by anime, is transmedia and fleshes out a story across multiple media platforms. In this episode, Gomez explains how each of our lives is a story which you can shape in new and beneficial ways. If your story starts with an unfavorable or faulty premise, there’s always a possibility of a revision. 


Lessons:

1. You are living a story and you’re the screenwriter.


2. You are capable of revising the story of your life to reflect your current wisdom.


3. Once people realize their connection to each other they’ll do less harm.
