TOUGH TALKS: Conversations on Mental Toughness

TOUGH TALKS: Conversations on Mental Toughness

Most of us never learned how to train our brains, which is why most of us needlessly settle, struggle and worse – suffer. My name is Chris Dorris and I want to make Brain Training mainstream. This is my series TOUGH TALKS: Conversations on Mental Toughness. I’m interviewing badasses from all walks of life, on what Mental Toughness means to them, and their unique approaches to strengthening their mind. For videos, visit http://bit.ly/tough-talks...

You heard it. He said it. “Busy is Lazy!”

Craig is a recovered workaholic turned Freedom Coach. He’ll explain what he means by all of that.

In the meantime, suffice it to say, if you feel like your life is too “busy” (who does that apply to?!) have a listen to this cat.

This week I have decided to switch it up a bit by flying solo. In other words, our Tough Talks guest today is me. I felt particularly compelled to share with my Tough Talks Tribe some thoughts I've been having recently on the relationship between Mental Toughness Training (aka, Emotional Mastery Training) and racism.  

My content is my legacy in this life. It will live on long after I have returned to the non-local realm. And i...

To Robby Dinero Mental Toughness is doing what needs to be done regardless of circumstance.   

"Pain isn't the problem," he says. "Your thinking that it's a problem is the problem, so suck it up!" And he offers us specifics on precisely HOW to "suck it up."  

This dude is deep, intense, and cool as hell. You're gonna be mesmerized by him.

"Sweetie, you have cancer. Stage 4 lung cancer. And you have 6 months to live."  


That's not an uncommon story. But the way that "V" chose to respond to it is a powerful lesson not only to anyone who is fighting an illness, but also to us ALL on how to choose to live - really live.

We're at our 45th Tough Talks Episode!!! And you know what that means? You do know what any respectable podcaster does at the 45th episode, right? Of course you do! Who doesn't know that? They do a HIGHLIGHT REEL of the first 44!  

I'm pretty sure that's not a thing, but maybe we'll start a trend.  At any rate, someone suggested it, I loved the idea since we've had SO many amazing guests, and my team went to...

So we turn the mics around today and have former TT guest, Jason Goldberg, do the interviewing. So CD is the guest today as Jason grills him on all things Mental Toughness. As expected, JG delivers with depth and humor.

We cover some territory here today: the nature of anxiety, coaching being faster than counseling, and remembering actors names on the spot in a sloppy, but entertaining, Raid Fire session.

We have THE Jason Goldberg on the show today. Jason is an author, speaker, coach and rapper. Yep. He even opened for Wu Tang Clan. He also calls himself a Humorizer of Life. For good reason.

Let's sit back, relax and enjoy the ride here as JG tells us how he went from an obese, severely depressed, angry victim of circumstance to a thin one. NO! Not what I meant...you know what I mean. He got better. :)

Oh, and he makes a super ...

She spent six and a half months in the hospital.

Meet Joe Trevors, firefighter turned Mindset Coach.

"disabilities" into superpowers.

Gary unapologetically describes himself as a reformed asshole and is focusing his work on helping other assholes do their own transformation!

He's a peaceful warrior. That's a really great way to describe him. He's so quietly confident and sincere that you find yourself wanting him to cut into you with his supportive scalpel so you can free yourself from the dead weight of your false beliefs that hold you back.

We have ...

This guy just blew my mind. I spent most of the interview taking notes! He is a self-declared student of leadership, which straight out of the chute I ask him to define - and you'll love his brilliant response. We talk neuroscience, existentialism, and skillful self-delusion. And Steph Curry. https://christopherdorris.com/tough-talks-the-greatest-human-superpower-with-darren-gold/ --- Send in a voice message: https://anch...
