There is a disturbing and growing trend in the Veteran Community. Veterans who claim that "political correctness" is ruining our country, but then scream and cry whenever someone does something they don't agree with. In essence, we've created our own "safe space" where certain beliefs are acceptable and others aren't.

We've also allowed ourselves to become "triggered" at the drop of a pin. This leads to irrational behavior that resembles what we see from SJW types on college campuses. The truth is that if we spent more time working on ourselves and building ourselves up, we'd have a lot less time to complain.

This podcast discusses why it's so important for the veteran community to overcome this trend. Rather than adopting an outrage culture, we should be building our community up, helping other Veterans, and putting ourselves in position to affect change in this country.

Years ago, if you were a Veteran trying to make it in the civilian world, the path was usually to head off to college, get a degree, and then try to secure an entry level job some where. 

The thing is that a lot of Veterans are under the false impression that a college degree is the only way to make it and that their experience doesn't mean anything to employers. 

Well...times have changed, and unless you're looking to become a doctor, nurse, or lawyer, degrees don't really mean much to anyone anymore. In fact, I have a Bachelors, Masters, and Ph.D work completed and it's never gotten me a job. 

If you're a Veteran who's served honorably, that means that you have leadership skills, that you're reliable, and that you know how to put work in. That's important. 

Phil Randazzo, our guest today, is trying to get you to realize how important that is. Phil is not a veteran. He's a serial entrepreneur who built his empire out of nothing. He's also the founder of American Dream U, a nonprofit who's mission is to help Veterans make better transitions into the civilian world. 

Through American Dream U and Mission Next, Phil has created a platform that gives Veterans the knowledge they need to build upon their already valuable skills to secure employment or build businesses. 

The platform is completely free for veterans, and it takes minutes to sign up. It also contains what I'd estimate to be at least $100,000 worth of education if it were part of a degree. You can learn everything from basic finance to advanced business management. There's complete ecommerce courses and courses on building out your LinkedIn profile. There's courses taught by guys like Tim Ferriss and other entrepreneurs who'd normally charge thousands of dollars for their advice. 

So while I really want you to listen to this episode, what I want you to do before you listen is to get over there to AmericanDreamU.org and sign up as quickly as possible. Get on there and start learning. Dedicate yourself to spending an hour a week on there.

One of the things I hear most often from Veterans is that, in their civilian lives, they can't find the pride and sense of purpose in what they do when they enter the civilian world. 

This is a dangerous feeling because it inevitably leads to depression, the leading killer of US Military Veterans in this country today. It's a difficult state to overcome, but you can get out of it. 

The key is in understanding one thing: in order to have pride and sense of purpose, you need to keep earning it. The reality is that if you are feeling like your life is empty, you're probably bored. You get bored when you feel like you're not doing anything worthwhile. 

In this Warrior Notes Episode we take you through three things you can do to regain that pride you felt when you were still in uniform.

A Harvard lecturer recently stated in a lecture in Germany that coconut oil is pure poison and that it wasn't until recently that it was considered healthy. 

This, however, is contradicts the fact that coconut oil has been eaten for thousands of years amongst Polynesian populations and that those populations had extremely low incidences of heart disease until starting the Western Diet. 

This podcast goes into what you should know about coconut oil. The truth is that it isn't poison, and it isn't God's gift to man. It is a food that has some benefits as well as some downfalls if you overconsume it.

In our lives there is an inherent temptation amongst us to blame the world for our problems. Many enjoy playing the victim and complain about this or that holding them down.

The danger here is that, when you do play the victim, you immediately submit control of your problems to outside forces rather than doing what you should be doing: working on yourself.

The two most important assets you have in your life are your mind and your body. If either falters, it will keep you from doing the things you need to do in your life for your family, for your career, and for yourself. 

One aspect of maintaining these two most valuable of assets is mental toughness. Being mentally tough means that you're not only going to be good on your good days, but that you'll also find a way to perform when things get hard. 

In this episode we go through three things you can do to increase your own mental toughness.

Whenever we're trying to do big things in our lives, it always seems like we don't have enough time. 

The truth is that we all have the same 24 hours in a day. 

We don't lack time, we lack attention. 

Tips:

  • Get 8 Hours of Sleep or you'll lose part of your attention to fatigue
  • Go to sleep early and wake up early
  • Focus on one thing at a time
    • turn off your phone notifications
    • get your phone as far away from you as possible while you're focusing
    • keep one window up at a time on your computer
  • Plan the day before
    • create a schedule
    • create a checklist for each item on your schedule
  • Create lists
    • keep a notebook with you wherever you go so that you can record things you need to pay attention to later
  • Build a team to help you with the things you shouldn't be doing
  • Be present in everything you do. Don't treat your family and relations as second class citizens.
  • Prioritize what you're focusing on.
