Episode 295 is about surviving the dark hole in pursuit of our true purpose and happiness.

Sometimes when things are going so perfectly in our life, that’s the exact moment we feel lost. We get consumed by fame, power and money, thinking all of it should be enough, that it is all that we need — that we forget what it truly feels to LIVE. We start asking ourselves, is this all life has to offer?

Today, a former MLB baseball player and MLB all star, Shea Hillenbrand gets to share with us his journey towards the pursuit of his true purpose and happiness. He hid all of his childhood dreams and then realized that none of them were his actual dreams, that all he was doing was chasing the money, fame and the identity of his popularity to appease his ego. So in this episode, we are going to dig deep into our childhood traumas, face our fears, and surpass all the hurdles we thought only the grand things could solve, and we are going to do this together.

As Shea says, “Don’t miss the meat of the method: POWER and PERSPECTIVE,” so rediscover yourself with us. We provide support for men in all walks of life. Follow us at
