Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

Just START, a message from boxing promoter Barry Hearn that can’t be emphasized enough. This episode deserved an encore because we cannot overemphasize the importance of not taking your life for granted. Life is a gift, you must not abuse it. Hearn wanted to be a heavyweight boxing champion, but his path lead him to be a promoter instead. His own passion seem harsh at times, but that’s only testament to how strongly he believes in the power of the individual to create a meaningful life.

 

Lessons:

  1. At first take a scattergun approach in life; don’t set limits and then hone in on your passion.
  2. Start an hour earlier and end an hour later.
  3. Champions are impressive, but the people at the back of the field who refuse to give in may be even more impressive.
  4. 4. Life is a gift, do not squander it!

For 200 episodes Joe and the podcast team have been seeking the secrets to living the Spartan Way.  This week Col. Nye turns things around asking Joe what that process has taught him, and then he digs in and asks Joe’s wife Courtney if all this stuff is for real. Courtney doesn’t make many public appearances, so you won’t want to miss this one. Hear what happened when she spotted an eccentric barefoot runner in a wetsuit running in her direction.  Clearly, she’s a true Spartan!

 

This week’s show takes place at the scene of Spartan Agoge 009 in Pittsfield, VT. Joe, the Col. and special guest Zach Even-Esh talk about some of their favorite takeaways and how they inspired Joe’s new book The Spartan Way.

 

Lessons:

You were born with all the tools you need to get through life. You don’t necessarily need any new ones.

Practice adversity.

Be passionate, but have fun.

“Lucky” to have cerebral palsy? That’s what Zach Anner says in what is unexpectedly our funniest podcast episode yet! Most people work all their lives to become comfortable asking for help and showing the world their true selves, weakness and all. Zach Anner skipped all that. Using what he’s learned he created and stars in his own YouTube show “Workout Wednesdays,” in which he shows how spectacularly he can fail and shares what he calls “inspirational jokes.” It’s disarming, inspirational, genuine and really funny! He has parlayed his compelling voice into a memoir, If at Birth You Don’t Succeed, and as a writer on an ABC sitcom “Speechless.” Anner may fail at many things, but he is masterful at being himself.

Lessons:
1. A visible disability can be a gift in that it’s a route to greater authenticity.

2. With the right perspective, terrible experiences can be transformed into great stories.

3. Failure blazes an alternative route to success.
