Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

Attacked by a Grizzly bear, twice, Todd Orr survived a modern day version of The Revenant. He not only lived through dual brutal attacks from a grizzly mother, but was conscientious enough attempt writing a warning note to hunters before driving himself to the emergency room. The extent of his injuries made this impossible. His survival was not due solely to luck, but to forethought and preparation. It gave him the best chance to walk away from these dire attacks. Orr is a true Spartan and his story will impart valuable lessons on how to face and transcend extraordinary challenges.

Lessons:

1. Chance favors a prepared mind.


2. The will to survive sets the standard for our innate resilience.


3. Bad things have the potential to happen at any time and any place; be ready, but don’t be afraid.

When Georgina Pazcoguin witnessed the second tower fall on 9/11, it codified her commitment to her ballet, something she had been practicing since preschool. Her mother urged her to quit and come home, but she doubled down knowing that the world needed the art that she could contribute to heal. In this episode, she describes the dedication and physical hardship it takes to make it into the New York City Ballet company. Despite what many people think of ballet, this is an endeavor that requires an excess of grit and determination.

Lessons:

1. When you feel exhausted from your path in life ask yourself whether this is really want to do. If the answer is yes, keep on going.


2. The journey of dedicating years, if not decades, to developing an art can be more meaningful than a meteoric rise to the top.


3. In the face of calamity, you have to honor your unique strength.

Win battles through trust, good stories, and building relationships - this is the surprising and refreshing approach of this paradigm shifting green beret, Scott Mann. He introduced “rooftop leadership” in Afghanistan to a skeptical  NATO crowd, but his courage to live it and its subsequent success changed minds. In this episode, Mann shows us his methods and how to work them at in all of our challenges. We need this type of leadership more than ever and it’s within our capabilities. Listen and learn how to develop them.

Lessons:

1. Lead from the bottom up, through relationships and human connection.


2. The greatest leaders have a vision they are able to articulate through story.


3. Leave tracks in the world which serve the people that follow you.
