4 Simple Steps to Getting What You Want with Jake Herbert

4 Simple Steps to Getting What You Want with Jake Herbert

Jake Herbert is back on the show! He was an Olympic Wrestler whose life’s dream was to win the gold medal in the 2016 Olympics. My boys and I were there to see the trials. Sadly, his Olympic dream didn’t come true.

It was a crushing blow, but now Jake’s smiling. He’s got a baby on the way, a new career, and a mission to leave every room better than he found it. He talks about how he reinvented himself after the disappointment of a lifetime, and he shares his 4 ridiculously simple steps to getting what you want in life.

Jake’s story

Jake began listening to The Dad Edge podcast (The Good Dad Project at that time) when he became the father of a child from a previous marriage. He listened to a backlog of episodes and started his journey to becoming a better father. He decided to reach out to say thank you for the help and eventually came on the show to talk about How to Develop a Gold Medal Mindset.

Now Jake Herbert is a real estate coach who helps people see their maximum potential and creates a path to lead them there.

The Dangers of Internalizing Stress


Stress causes 90% of the health issues that are killing us today. Every thought or emotion we have releases chemicals into the environment in which our cells grow. This causes inflammation, disease, and bad habits that are damaging mentally and physically.

In this 100th episode of Thursday Throwdown, Dr. Ryan Wohlfert talks about how internalizing feelings and emotions leads to a build up of stress, and how we as men and fathers can boost our health and achieve sustainable success by surrounding ourselves with likeminded men and sharing our challenges with them.

Why do most men internalize? We may not even be conscious of it, but many of us have the belief that we’re not worthy to be happy and successful. Getting with a men’s group helps us to find out who we are, what we want, and why we want it. A tribe of brothers gives unbiased advice, moral support, and holds us accountable, so we can achieve longterm, sustainable success in money, work, and relationships

Every thought or emotion we have releases chemicals into the environment in which our cells grow. #men #menshealth #stress #anxiety #fitness Click To Tweet

Getting SMART About Your Goals for the New Year


Welcome to 2018 and welcome to the Dad Edge Podcast! We are all working on our New Year’s resolutions. What can we do differently in our lives? What will propel us to the next level? Is it a new skill, hobby, business, experience? Is it a health goal? A financial goal?

Whatever it is, you’d be shocked to know that 50% of us have forgotten our resolutions by March, and 85-90% of us have given up completely by July. The stats are not in our favor when it comes to changing our habits and reaching our goals. Today I will tell you why.

Why do our New Year resolutions fail? Most of our goals are not SMART: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-sensitive. #goals #resolutions #newyear #dads #men #fathers Click To Tweet

 

Getting S.M.A.R.T

Is your goal:

  • Specific?
  • Measurable?
  • Achievable?
  • Relevant?
  • Time-sensitive?

We appreciate all the support!

How to Commit to Life Goals

How to Commit to Life Goals the Navy SEAL Way with Thom Shea

Often when we confront obstacles – whether in work or at home – we want the map. We want the “how-to guide” to solving the problem. Today we have former Navy SEAL and author of Unbreakable: A Navy SEAL’s Way of Life, Thom Shea, to tell us why searching for the how-to is a waste of time and how to commit to our goals the Navy SEAL way.

Buckle your seatbelts, tie your shoes, because you’re really going to enjoy this show!

Thom Shea

Thom says he had a great childhood in southeast Indiana at a time when kids could do anything. He didn’t come from wealth, so if he wanted something he had to go out and get it, and he did.

At 10 years old, he had his own trap line to catch raccoons, muskrat, and other game. He kept a gun in his car and a knife on his hip. Now parents will get arrested for allowing their kids to carry weapons, but his parents were the best in the world. They told him, “As long as you can earn it, we endorse it.” This mentality took him all the way West Point and the SEAL teams. As long as he could accomplish it, they were supportive.

Of course, good support didn’t mean they agreed with his choices. They didn’t want him to go into SEAL teams. They were afraid of him being sent to war and getting killed. But, as a young man, he told them they could either support him or he wouldn’t come home. Now that Thom is a dad himself, he draws on that experience to inform his own parenting.

Your kids are going to do what they’re wanting to do. Keep encouraging them to be bold and brave. Say yes, instead of no.

Thom Shea has been married to his current wife of almost 13 years, Stacy. They have a boy named Chance who is going on eleven years old.  Thom also has two children from his first marriage, a seventeen-year-old son and a twenty-year-old daughter who is now attending West Point.

Thom said there is a huge difference between his first and second marriage. When Stacy came into their lives, everything changed. They all became better people.

If the woman is fully engaged as a mom, the kid flourishes. When the mom is checked out, the kid is checked out.

Thom says the are straightforward in their home life and that it’s the small things that keep the family together. They are physical and cuddly. His kids see mom and dad being affectionate. They eat as many family meals together as they can. They embrace failure because they know it’s the only way to learn and grow.

We love people making mistakes around here.

On Failure

Thom knows a lot about failure. He had to run home with his tail between his legs after flunking out of West Point. Then he had to endure BUD/s training five times in order to become a SEAL. He didn’t even know how to swim when he first signed up, but he didn’t bother on how to become a SEAL, he decided that a SEAL was who he was and committed to it until he succeeded.

Thom Shea says it’s never a matter of how-to. That’s not the place to look for the answer. The first place to look is at who you are is a human being. Being a dad is one of those challenges. When you become a dad, that is who you are and you must decide to commit to it. That means committing to your health, your business, your wife, and your spirituality.

It’s who you are and what you do. “How to” is tertiary.

Unbreakable

During deployment in Afghanistan, Thom didn’t know if he’d ever make it home alive. Each day, he wrote notes on what he was going through and what life lessons it taught him. At the end of a 6-month deployment, he had thirteen unbreakable lessons to share with his children.

After he came home, what would be a book sat on the shelf. His wife Stacy told him that she wanted him to complete the manuscript to print out five copies for immediate family. He organized his experiences and the lessons they taught him in a linear fashion and printed the first version.

They released it on Amazon and the book struck a chord with readers. It was soon picked up by a publisher and has been doing well ever since. Thom put the lessons online so every person can go through a guided process of the thirteen lessons outlined in Unbreakable. He also developed a course especially for executives.

Dad Advice

Thom Shea has a wealth of life-changing advice for men and dads, but his top words of wisdom are these:

  • Honor your word. Honor the fact that what comes out of your mouth is the most powerful thing you can give people.
  • Face everything that you’re afraid. Go do it.
  • Push beyond your self-imposed limitations and do it often.
  • Find love. Find a way to have love for the people in your life. Be one with the people around you and do it often.
