We all have big dreams. But are you willing to pay the price required to make them manifest?There's a big difference between those who quit and those who commit.At the core of that difference is one's ability to tolerate discomfort.Discomfort is the price we pay for resilience.And resilience is the foundation of growth.Few grasp and practice this truth better than Spartan Race founder and CEO Joe De Sena, returning to the podcast to usher us into the new year correct and jumpstart our new year's ambitions into action.Joe last graced the studio in December of 2020 (RRP #567), a conversation that probed his absolutely fascinating backstory and left us with powerful insights on the limits we impose on personal possibility.Continuing in the spirited annual tradition we have here to launch the new year with an uncomfortable kick in the pants, I thought it fit (literally) to invite Joe back for a more focused elaboration on the truths, mindset tools and motivation to translate ambition into positive results.For those new to Joe, he's the entrepreneurial mastermind behind Spartan—the obstacle course racing series that became a global phenomenon, and the evil genius behind Death Race—perhaps the most absurd sufferfest ever conceived.He's also an absolute endurance freak. Example A: in a mere week, Joe completed the Vermont 100 mile run, Ironman Lake Placid, and the Badwater 135. In addition, he crushed 50 ultramarathons and 14 Ironman events in a single year (a certain kind of insanity that must be some kind of record). And he's the kind of guy who, on a whim, once ran from New York City to Vermont.Joe's most striking talent is his facility for motivating the best out of people—a skill committed to print in his new book, 10 Rules For Resilience, which is a guide to developing mental toughness.Today we deconstruct resilience in all its forms—why it's crucial to growth and how to cultivate it.We also go deep on discipline, courage, and discomfort. The importance of personal values in adhering to your goals. How to navigate failure. And why your reaction to challenging situations defines you.And finally, we explore the importance of imbuing these principles into our parenting.Joe is a force of nature—a bullshit-free and 100% authentic lunatic. But his heart is huge. His experience-based message is powerful. And paired with practical tools fundamental to shattering stagnation.To read more click here. You can also watch it all go down on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.May his words propel you to craft your own challenge for this impending new year—something extraordinary.So let's dive into it 2022 headfirst.

Lisa is joined by Joe De Sena who talks about his latest book, .10 Rules for Resilience: Mental Toughness for Families. Joe De Sena's new book, 10 Rules for Resilience: Mental Toughness for Families [HarperOne; October 19, 2021], is a guidebook for becoming more resilient, so that we can raise more resilient kids. Built from life but backed by clinical experience, Joe and his co-author, Dr. Lara Pence, team up to provide a framework that will help you grow into the best version of yourself and develop the skills needed to parent with resilience as your compass. It's a no B.S. guide that will leave you feeling more confident, capable, and courageous in the most important job of your life: being a parent.   From his childhood in Queens, New York, to his role as founder and CEO of the most grueling endurance races in the world, Joe De Sena has spent his life running toward challenge and discomfort. Why? Because how we react to challenging situations defines us and our families. The only tools we have as humans to survive the many peaks and valleys of a full life are preparedness, health, leadership, and most importantly, resilience.   Why do so many of us struggle to finish things we start, delay gratification, and protect our health—and why do our kids continue to struggle in every facet of life? Because we haven't shown them a path to resilience, and we haven't fought for it ourselves.   In 10 Rules for Resilience Joe outlines his 10 principles for building True Resilience—a term he uses for a body and mind that have been carved out of hard work, challenge, and failure. It takes True Resilience to approach overwhelming situations with calm and confidence, to not get rattled, anxious, or angry, and even to embrace failure, setbacks, and redirections.   In this, his most timely and motivating book yet, Joe defines what so many of us struggle to understand: the difference between what is difficult and what is desperate. We wrongly think that when we struggle, we are vulnerable. The truth? We need difficult situations to grow, become strong, and ultimately, survive and thrive in the real world.   10 Rules for Resilience teaches how to parent from the position of True Resilience and change your family's life, including techniques such as:  • A framework for living, being, and parenting that will prepare you and your family for anything.  • Proven techniques derived from clinical research and experience to set the whole family up for better, more effective coping skills.  • Family activities that supplement each rule of resilience and help you put the reading material into real-life action.  • A robust values exercise to help your family create a solid vision statement.  • A five-step model to increase your fear IQ.   10 Rules for Resilience ultimately proves that by not giving ourselves and our kids the ongoing gift of challenge, failure, and hard work is to deprive ourselves of one the most satisfying and rewarding parts of the human experience—the strength to stand back up again after we fall.

We discuss how charmed we were by this 1976 exploitation film that helped pave the way for the Cannonball Run movies and ask the important questions like: who is the hotter Carradine?

The other day Tantz Aerine wrote a newspost about an article critical of Squid Game. The crux of things was that the Squid Game creator had said their message was anti-capitalist, while this critic was saying that the author's message with the Squid Game was an anti communist critique and not a very good one at that. The issue here is that isn't how you do criticism. At all. You can give an interesting reading of something and tell us why YOU think it's anti-Communist, or tell us how it looks through the lens of post-colonialism or new wave feminism etc, but you can't say that is what the author is saying or what the work means, especially if the author explicitly says WHAT they are saying. This may seem like a small distinction but it's actually very, very important. Bad criticism often tells us what the creator is saying. Don't do that. Don't be that person. When you have a creative work to look at, you can't tell us what it means or what the author means, only the creator can do that. You CAN tell us what it means to you though. You can tell us about the commonly agreed meanings of various tropes and symbols too as well as their meanings within different cultural frameworks and contexts, but not why the creator used them, that's up to the creator. The Squid Game is based on the deathmatch trope from anime and manga using all the clichés from that form including poor ordinary people caught up in something dangerous that they don't fully understand, a callous attitude to life, normally innocuous games turned deadly, twists and turns with who's really behind the whole thing, betrayal and so on. We can say that for a certainty because it's provably true. Why did the author co-opt the deathmatch trope? We can't say, but we can theorise they used it because it's popular in Korea and Japan. We can also talk about the history of the deathmatch trope, different examples of it like Running Man, Deathrace 2000, Gantz, Btooom, Danganronpa, Deadman Wonderland, Gyakkyou Burai Kaiji: Ultimate Survivor, and many more which all follow the same pattern. We can use those examples to talk about why the elements of those tropes exist but we can NOT talk about their use in Squid Game in isolation. That would be like talking about the use of the word “and” in the English language without talking about the use of similar words in other languages and the origins of the word in German. It's important to remember that things do not exist in a vacuum but also that intent is up to the creator to define, not the critic.

Ep 98: How to Build Your Engine AND Crush Strength PRs with Brent Miller

Are you currently building your engine and crushing strength PRs in your training?? Joining me on the show today is longtime client of Rebel Performance, Brent Miller. Brent is a strength coach at TNT Fitness; so why is he training with us at Rebel? In his own words, “Coaches need coaches, too. A lot of strength coaches do train with us, but we also have plenty of former athletes who just want to reclaim their athleticism. A client told me the other day, “I'm not on a playing field anymore, so I just want to dominate this leaderboard of life,” and that's a statement we at Rebel can get down with. Brent and I dive into his primary frustration that brought him to Rebel and why the accountability piece of having a coach and other like-minded humans around to push you is so important. We then talk all things strength and the range in which we can express it. Here's a look at how Brent's strength has increased significantly in just 14 weeks: his squat went from 420 lbs to 510 lbs; his bench went from 329 lbs to 360 lbs; his deadlift went from 511 lbs to 547 lbs. Thats not all. Here's a look at how Brent's engine has increased in the last 14 weeks: his Death Race time went from 14:43 to 14:13; his push, pull, row AMRAP went from 4 rounds to 4.75 rounds; his Row Burpee Metcon went from 7:38 to 7:18. These are only a few examples, and you too can have these results. Listen in to the episode to hear how you can build your engine and crush strength PRs just like Brent and all other Rebel athletes. What You'll Learn in This Episode: [05:14] How long Brent's been training with Rebel Performance [06:42] Brent's primary frustration that brought him to Rebel [11:59] Why you need accountability [14:57] Brent's big wins at Rebel [17:25] The range of expressing your strength [19:48] Big lessons Brent has learned through training with Rebel [21:48] The importance of following what's written [24:40] Balancing your deposits and withdrawals [29:01] The actualities behind fitness trackers [31:39] Brent's one piece of advice [33:57] Why you should join Rebel [34:45] Where to find Brent and TNT Fitness Links: Explore our free training samples here: https://www.rebel-performance.com/training-templates/ (https://www.rebel-performance.com/training-templates/) Follow James Cerbie here: https://www.instagram.com/jamescerbie/ (https://www.instagram.com/jamescerbie/) Follow Brent Miller on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/brenttntfit/ (https://www.instagram.com/brenttntfit/) Follow TNT Fitness on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/tntfitnessmenasha/ (https://www.instagram.com/tntfitnessmenasha/) Check out TNT Fitness on Facebook here: https://mbasic.facebook.com/TNTMenasha/ (https://mbasic.facebook.com/TNTMenasha/) Explore TNT Fitness here: https://tntmenasha.com/ (https://tntmenasha.com/) Want to learn more about the Rebel Performance Training Team?

Marina Anderson Ex-Wife of David Carradine, The Eye of My Tornado / Four Feet to Fame: A Hollywood Dog Trainer's Journey op culture/Memoir/autobiography. This is a significant and very personal book. This book has been inducted into the Johnny Grant Hollywood Walk of Fame Library. "...it was one long rollercoaster thrill... Mr. Toad's wild ride...intense passion and emotion. He was the eye of my tornado." Marina Anderson. Marina Anderson was just starting out taking acting lessons at Warner Bros., when she wandered one afternoon onto the candlelit set of a Shaolin temple and met for the first time, the volatile, dark and brilliant personality that was actor and icon, David Carradine. Two dynamic people merging into a karmic-destined, intense and turbulent love relationship. Each struggling with their own demons including sexual abuse and incest. Their private life was replete with love, passion, erotic pleasure and eventually bondage, sexual experimentation, and pain as an avenue to pleasure. Their marriage was marred by a toxic secret that could not be ignored. Her writing speaks to readers universally by focusing on their personal journey, revealing the truth about the couple, addresses conquering fear and overcoming obstacles, self discovery, recovery, re-inventing and rebuilding one's self. It's her personal survival while desperately trying to save the marriage as well as Carradine's constant struggle to be someone he wasn't, but wished he could be. Spirituality, psychic John Edward,other psychics and astrologers who helped her are written about in the book as well. They were married on the Warner Bros. back lot and their six-year relationship was a whirl of auditions, star-studded parties, exotic locations, red carpets and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Marina, who was already an established actress, became Carradine's personal manager and set about rehabilitating the career of an actor who was now known for his heavy drinking. She introduced him to Quentin Tarantino, who cast David in a lead role in the popular Kill Bill films. This vaulted Carradine back onto the Hollywood A-list. After their divorce with the help of re-known celebrity Dr. Drew Pinsky (Celebrity Rehab, Sober House), issues are addressed in the consultation verbatim, occupying an entire chapter. Anderson was able to finally exorcise the demons that have haunted her for so long about their relationship and herself that almost destroyed her. "This book is an avenue for his fans and the general public to know, understand and hopefully accept him as a man, not a celluloid fantasy...to be admired for his talents and the motivations behind certain issues in his life understood. It's also to reveal the very personal interior of a marriage that people can relate to. What we do for love. We are all human beings with our faults. He was afraid people wouldn't remember him. That will never happen. The legend continues." David Carradine's acting career spanned four decades onstage, television and cinema. He became an international sensation as Kwai Chang Caine in the 1970s hit television series Kung Fu and cemented his cult hero status with his role in the classic movie Death Race 2000. He portrayed Woody Guthrie in Hal Ashby's Bound for Glory and Bill in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill films. Carradine received four Golden Globe nominations. He was a talented songwriter and musician and performed in a band called Cosmic Rescue Team. He died in a Bangkok hotel room, June 3, 2009, an apparent victim of autoerotic asphyxiation. Amid sensational media speculation, Marina refused to let David's death remain stigmatized like it was and launched her own investigation into the death of her ex-husband. Suicide? Foul play? A sex act gone wrong? Was he alone? Was there a cover-up? Her conclusions are startling. 4 years ago #/, #a, #anderson, #carradine, #david, #dog, #ex-wife, #eye, #fame:, #feet, #four, #hollywood, #journey, #marina, #my, #of, #the, #to, #tornado, #trainer's
