A quick glance into a section of the book "The Magic of Thinking Big" which covers the three types of people in this world. Those who surrender completely, those who surrender partially, and those who NEVER surrender at all.  "Experts agree that the person you will be one, five, ten, twenty years from now depends almost entirely on your future environment." We also take a look at the different "buckets" of life and call question to whether or not you should be doing the work that you are doing.  I open up about my own struggles and career path and where I am going next.  I hope that you enjoy. You can find the book as well as all of my other recommendations at www.chadshipley.com/shiz Thanks,

In this very raw episode, E.J. shares his very powerful journey from 10 years as a heroin addict to rock bottom to a man that works day by day to give his best to his family. This is one of the most revealing I've ever been as E.J. and I set out to burn the blanket of shame. It takes massive courage to share a story like this, but it's a story that has the power to change or save a persons life. We confront the "BULLY" epidemic and address the simple notion that we all have sh*t, we all have baggage, we all have demons, and we're all trying to figure it out.. You don't need to be an addict to take away some amazing pearls of wisdom that unfold in this conversation. If nothing else, I hope it's just a refreshing take on some really complex topics. Thanks E.J. for all your strength.

Themes in this episode include: Mental Toughness - Embracing Discomfort - Becoming Your Best I ordered two books back in January and had no idea that they were in any way related. Living with a Seal, 31 Days Training with the Toughest Man on the Planet by Jesse Itzler and Can't Hurt Me, Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds by David Goggins. These two humans have me doing things I never imagined, and I tried to surface up and tie together content from both books to give you a unique listening experience. I spent weeks reading and then developing the content for the show. The audio is not as great as I would have liked, but I don't have the luxury of fixing it at this point so I hope you can muster through it. Thanks for taking the time to listen.
