Spartan Up! - A Spartan Race for the Mind!

We all know that self-control is important, but few of us know how to actually develop it. Joe De Sena, founder & CEO of Spartan, asks Professor Roy Baumeister, an expert in the field of self-control, how to build this essential muscle. Self-control or willpower - is about habit-forming and setting yourself up for success. Professor Baumeister's advice is simple but effective: start small, set goals, and be consistent. By following his advice, you can develop the self-control you need to achieve your goals.

Professor Roy Baumeister is a world-renowned psychologist who has spent his career researching self-control. In his work, he has found that self-control functions like a muscle - the more you exercise it, the stronger it becomes. This research has profound implications for our understanding of human behavior, and can help us all to live better, more productive lives.

Here are the steps you need to follow to also get self-control and discipline.:

  1. Do something hard every day to exercise your self-control muscle
  2. Keep track of your progress and reward yourself for meeting goals
  3. Make your goals public to add social pressure and accountability



"Self-control works like a muscle. So if you exercise it, it gradually gets stronger, and it's sort of one basic muscle that you use for everything."

Native American author, speaker, and veteran DJ Vanas is the author of "The Warrior Within," a book about the importance of service, discipline, and courage.

Joe De Sena, founder & CEO of Spartan Race, asked DJ Vanas what he believes makes a great Warrior.

"Someone who leads by example, and at the end of the day, somebody who has dedicated their life to service, to their tribe, to their people. It's all about making a contribution. That's what the warrior role comes from. And it transcends age, race, gender, and stage of life. These principles that I share in the book are available for anybody willing to take on the call."

In this interview, Joe De Sena and DJ Vanas talk about what rites of passage are now and what they should be, how young men are currently struggling and how to overcome that, the role of a warrior in the community, how warriors are more like ants than eagles, and the 5 things you should do to become a true warrior.
