As a human being, I can't imagine what Hell is like, but Hell on Earth to me looks a lot like being bitter about someone else's success.
The world doesn't care about you. Understanding this is the key to your success and happiness.
Eddie Gallagher is a retired US Navy Seal who was acquitted of war crimes after being falsely accused by his team mates.
For three years, Eddie and his family were put through absolute hell. He served nine months in jail, his children were dragged out of the house at gun point, and his wife waged her own war to save Eddie and their family.
Once he was acquitted, his problems did not let up. The Navy tried to take away his retirement and his Seal trident.
Nevertheless, Eddie persisted in getting his name cleared, and today, he is working to help fellow service members who were falsely accused or harshly punished by the UCMJ through the Pipe Hitters Foundation.
Eddie is also the author of a soon to be released book called The Man in the Arena, that tells the story of his and his family's ordeal.

In this episode, I discuss what I would do if I were 20 years old again.
The negative voices in your head are there for a reason. They served you at one point. Recognize them for that, and you'll be able to move beyond them.
If you said most of the stuff you told yourself to a friend, that person wouldn't be your friend anymore.
Whether we like it or not, there is veteran stereotype out there that's pretty negative. There's nothing we can do about that, but there is something we can do about what we put into the world.
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.
In the middle of that, he was a high-ranking drug smuggler for the Mexican Drug Cartel for twenty years.
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.

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 learn more about The Citadel, and it's Exercise Science program, head over to Citadel.edu.
Regardless of what you do in life, if it's worth it, it will be difficult. You cannot be scared to fail if you want to accomplish anything.
You're never going to get to where you want to be if you just try to hit home runs.
Living your best life as a Veteran might come with this mind shift.
In order to get anywhere in life you need to know what you're working toward.

If you have goals, reaching them will require short term sacrifice for long term gain.
Fear can either turn you in to the worst version of yourself, or the best version of yourself.
Time is far more valuable than money, but we waste it like water.
In this episode, I discuss the events of the last year in my life and the existence of the podcast.
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.

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.
2020 brought many changes, but there are still opportunities to move yourself forward.
Decide to be a participant in your life, and not just an observer, in 2021.
Perfection is often the enemy of progress. Don't fall into the trap of trying to be perfect when you just need to get started.
