“Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man. But sooner or later the man who wins, is the man who thinks he can.” – Bruce Lee

We all want to do amazing things, but not every one of us is prepared to overcome the obstacles that come with them. Most of us would rather quit than do the unthinkable.

What kind of life would we have if there were no challenges? What would happen if no one was committed enough to push beyond the limits? Would we have the advancement in technology and the comforts we have today?

Obstacles are part of life and are not meant to harm us. They are there to help us grow and make us better.

Listen to today’s episode as I interview Joe De Sena, a man who thrives on obstacles. He is the founder and CEO of Spartan. He has done many unthinkable feats and has greatly impacted millions of people’s lives all over the world.

Tune in until the end to know the life-changing offer he has for you.

Be unbreakable.

Achieve what you have thought to be impossible.


⚡️ Our brain constantly shuts us down from doing anything uncomfortable.

⚡️ We have a moment to stop, breathe, and feel euphoric after pushing ourselves to do seemingly insurmountable tasks.

⚡️ We are designed to do difficult things and overcome them.
