The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Hans Florine talking about when he broke his legs 4 years ago, “I was out of view when I fell and broke my leg. He came around the corner and I was talking on the phone. And he's like, "What the F are you doing talking on the phone?" And I'm like, I'm talking to the Rangers. Why are you talking Rangers? We need a rescue. I've broken both of my legs, and he's just like, you you know, couldn't you, like, cry or scream or do something first before you just get to business of fixing it... I think he's one of the people who just said, like, I just started doing what I could do.”

Today, Yancy and Jarod talk with Hans about finding peace with yourself through adventure. In this episode, you’ll learn about:

- Don’t live life from the sideline
- Get as much as you can out of what you love doing
- How joy and proper safety outweigh fear
- The bonds and trust you gain taking things on with others
- Staying happy and doing what you can do
