    Can you Increase Willpower? Joe De Sena and Professor Roy Baumeister

    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.: Do something hard every day to exercise your self-control muscle Keep track of your progress and reward yourself for meeting goals 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."   LINKS: “Willpower: Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength” https://amzn.to/3EWHfrO Prof. Baumeister's work https://roybaumeister.com/   Joe De Sena & Spartan “10 Rules for Resilience” by Joe De Sena https://amzn.to/3TlpeaR Spartan Up podcast https://podfollow.com/spartan Spartan Up podcast on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/c/SpartanUpPodcast Joe De Sena on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/realjoedesena/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/spartanuppodcast/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/SpartanUpPodcast Twitter: https://twitter.com/SpartanUpPod Website: https://www.spartan.com/   SPONSORS: Spartan Up podcast is brought to you by Wild Health www.wildhealth.com Wondering which diet is right for you?

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.

Spartan Up host Johnny Waite was at our trail race, the Golden Gate classic in San Francisco, back in November. There was a group of guys, about 30 of them, all there to volunteer. He said these were interesting guys, these are hard guys, you could tell that they'd spent some time in trouble. But Johnny said he'd never seen such friendly, helpful, engaging, enthusiastic people. 30 of them did the work of 300. One of them told him about the Jericho project, that these are all guys who've been in prison, all guys who'd had addiction issues, all guys were on a track to spend the rest of their life doing that.

    Doug Lewis, Olympian and former World Cup alpine ski racer, says, “...And they were powder skiing. Like, I had powder skis, but they were poder skiing on race skis, which is a nightmare, on their day off. They are at the Olympics. They have trained 25-30 years for that week, and on a day off, where they could get hurt or whatever, they went powder skiing. And they were whooping and hollering, and they would fall, and we'd spray ‘em. And it was one of the best days ever, and I just think of that, that those guys chose the love of sport over saving their body, taking a day off, or whatever. And all of those are champions.” Today, Yancy and Jarod talk with Doug about how the love of sport is the foundation of your skills, talents, and overall, how good you are at something. In this episode, you'll learn: - The difference between a goal and a dream - Equipment and knowledge has gotten greater over the years, but the foundation of what makes a good athlete is still the same - Don't kill motivation. Building confidence like a muscle - Find things that push you to new levels as a regular person - Being able to give someone a breakthrough, which will snowball into success in whatever they choose down the road - Think, why'd you get into it in the first place? Keep the love alive Doug Lewis, Olympian and founder of Eliteam, is currently an alpine ski racing broadcast analyst, but he used to be a top competitor in the 1980s.  Doug was on the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Alpine Team, and 2 World Championship Teams in 1985 and 1987. At the 1985 World Championships, Doug won the bronze medal, which was the first ever World Championship medal for an American in downhill. He was the 1986 & 1987 U.S. Nationals National Downhill Champion. Inducted in 2002 VARA Ski Hall of Fame, 2007 US National Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame, and 2019 Vermont Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame.
