The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

If you're constantly feeding yourself negativity, fear, and anxiety, then that pathway gets locked on. It's like the railroad switch gets rusted and gets stuck on. Mark Divine, retired Navy SEAL and founder of the SEALFIT and Unbeatable Mind, talks with Joe De Sena, founder and CEO of Spartan,  about the importance of maintaining discipline in your daily routine, even when external factors make it difficult. If we allow ourselves to be constantly bombarded with negativity, it can lead to a permanent state of anxiety and depression. Making a commitment to our routines and rituals can help us stay focused and positive.


The two also talk about the upcoming Burpees For Vets challenge


Mark Divine is an entrepreneur, New York Times best-selling author, philanthropist, and one of the world’s top leadership and coaching experts. Divine’s leadership and coaching program for the SEALs was so effective that it’s now being used outside of the Navy by top CEOs, Fortune 100 companies, USA Olympics, elite universities, major league sports franchises, celebrities, and successful individuals from all over the world.
