In this episode, I discuss what I would do if I were 20 years old again.
Senior Chief Thom Shea served as a US Navy Seal for 23 years over three wars, earning a Silver Star and a Bronze Star with a "V" device amongst other honors.
Thom entered Navy Seal training after failing out of the United States Military Academy at West Point, determined that he would never fail out of anything ever again. His position in the Seal Teams was hard-won, surviving five Hell Weeks, more than any Seal candidate has ever gone through.
Today, Thom has authored two books: Three Simple Things: Leading During Chaos and Unbreakable: A Navy Seal's Way of Life. Thom is also the founder of Unbreakable Leadership, and he has trained thousands of people to overcome chaos by applying the rules of "three simple things" to their lives and businesses. In his off-time, Thom hunts and competes in ultra-marathons.
In this conversation, Thom and I discuss his amazing life, the rules that helped him thrive and survive, and how he transitioned to helping others in his post-military career.

If you have goals, reaching them will require short term sacrifice for long term gain.
We all have a choice: to throw out the greatest experiment in freedom and liberty ever created, or to create a future for our children and our childrens' children.

Dr. Dan Bornstein is an Associate Professor in the Department of Health and Human Performance at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina.
Dan began working at The Citadel after completing his Ph.D in Exercise Science from the University of South Carolina.
Dan is not a conventional professor. Prior to earning his Ph.D, Dan was the CEO of two fitness companies in Arizona. His research focuses on lack of physical preparedness in the United States as a national security issue.
US military organizations are having a difficult time recruiting qualified candidates because of a lack of physical preparedness amongst the population.
Dan came on the show to speak about the programs The Citadel offers in Exercise Science and Tactical Readiness. Though The Citadel is primarily a military college with an active Corps of Cadets, it has opened it's doors to active duty military members and Veterans who want to attend the institution without being members of the Corps of Cadets.
This leaves a world of opportunity open to Veterans who want to get an education from one of the best colleges in the country.

To say that Dr. Hal Bradley has had an interesting life is a massive understatement. Hal has been a soldier, a pastor, a meta physicist, and a sought-after Department of Justice Contractor.

Hal has since given up that life, and he's made it his mission to help people survive and thrive through the most horrific life experiences. His new book, Crisis Victory, teaches readers to transcend their difficult circumstances to victory.
