Equipping yourself with a winning mindset and ability to manage fear will allow you to exceed your own expectations. This is just one takeaway from this week's surprisingly philosophical, and not surprisingly deadly, guest Tony Blauer.
I don't think we can top that opening quote. Listening to this podcast could quite literally save your life. Exaggeration? Listen in and find out. And if it lives up to the hype, please share it with your family & friends.
I just realized that for years, I have been censoring some of my opinions and thoughts about training, self-defense, martial arts and personal safety. That might sound odd to some of you who already think I'm outspoken, but trust me, I have been. I have this human flaw where I want people to like me (I know it's weird) and knowing how pussified so many people are and how PC and sensitive the world has become, I realized I have in fact been editing my writing and my comments. That mild PC filter is not helping me connect to the right people and I'm not making people safer by being even mildly PC. This realization has inspired a change of heart. I will now say what I feel and I let it loose on this podcast.
