The BensLens10ish Show

Ben Fagan

I have found that a good life isn't made up of any one thing. One should not hold his or her identity solely in work, or school, or sport, or anything else that is being pursued. Instead, acknowledge these different aspects of life and observe how they all work together to create a beautiful, well-rounded person.

My mission with Ben Fagan Media and The BensLens10ish Show is to inspire thought while entertaining in 10ish minutes. This is my way to capture life.

"Rest=Rust and Motion=Lotion," is the philosophy Carrie Seifert, founder of Transformative Training, swears by when it comes to body movement and how to age with resiliency.  Carrie joins me on this episode of The Bens Lens 10ish show to discuss the importance of keeping our day-to-day actions ever-changing and evolving.  She also shares where fear stems from in association with movement and how making little changes can make a big difference in your life.

I got to sit down with Sarah Nelson, a graduate transfer from Duke University, now playing volleyball at the University of Southern California.  From talking with Sarah, it is clear that volleyball is just the tip of the iceberg. There is much more that goes into making up who she is.  In this episode of The Bens Lens 10ish Show, Sarah shares what drives her on a daily basis, what her hopes for the world are in and out of sports, and why she believes it's important to live life as a servant leader.

How can you be energized with everything that you do?

"We'll get to where we want to go; our path is just different, and that's the way we like it."  That is the attitude that makes up Karl Ellison. He has bought into who he is as a player and, more importantly, a person.  This wasn't something he was born with, but something he has worked tirelessly to achieve.  He will be the first to tell you he isn't done yet, far from it.  It is this attitude and way he enjoys life's continual journey that has lead him to this point.    In this episode of The Bens Lens 10ish Show, Karl shares with us how he takes advantage of each and every part of his journey and makes the most out of each environment he finds himself in.

Rigo and I grew up playing baseball in the same area and eventually became teammates at Lynn.  During the three years we played together, we became good friends, and Rigo became a major sounding board for me.  Over the years, we've had many conversations often circulating around the mental side of things.  I brought him on to talk about what he knows best, "the process."  Rigo dives into what "the process" is, how he uses it, and how it can be applied to your life.  In this episode of The Bens Lens 10ish Show, we're talking process, perspective, and transitioning into new life phases.

One of my good friends and former teammates, Zack Miednik, joined me in discussing mental growth on and off the baseball field. Athlete or not, we all experience times of doubt, worry, and insecurity. When things aren't going your way, how do you deal with it? How can you grow from it? How can you become the best version of yourself despite it? We touch on these questions and more in the first episode of The Bens Lens 10ish Show.
