Episode 13: Mental Fortitude, Personal Responsibility, Growth Requires Variability and Time Travel with Ryan Michler

In this episode, I have the opportunity to speak with Ryan Michler the Founder of the movement and Podcast Order of Man, best selling author of Sovereignty: Battle for the Hearts and Minds of Men. He his someone that I have considered a virtual mentor for some time listening to his podcast Order of Man and since joining his Mastermind group the Iron Council.

We discuss how Ryan was able to take personal challenges and turn it into a movement know as the Order of Man. It all started with the need to develop mental fortitude, which requires the need for taking personal responsibility and develop sovereignty over oneself.

In order to achieve the growth we desire, you will need variability to produce constant learning needed to progress. Develop relationships with Time Travelers (i.e. Mentors) The importance of taking action, and reaching just beyond what we think is possible.

How the Podcast can Help You

On The Rest & Recovery Podcast, you will learn from some of the foremost professionals and experts on the best ways to help you rest & recover. My hope is that you can bring your best self to life in your fitness pursuits, marriage, or as a parent to ensure your one life is lived well. The idea of the podcast came from a personal mission to help bring my best self to all things in my life.

My initial goal was to improve on my fitness pursuits as an endurance runner. However, as I began to examine the various components of my life, I realized some of the challenges started with some bad habits dating back to my 20’s. I would just keep going to work, college, and into late nights with friends with little sleep or consideration for the effects it was having on my body, mind, and spirit. It would always catch up with me and I would end up sick. This didn’t really stop over the years…the burn-out…it just occurred for different reasons.
Yes, I matured…a little… yet now I was married and a growing family with 3 little girls, a corporate job and still trying to pursue endurance sport’s goals. Up until a few years ago, I burned out in every way possible - physically and emotionally and mentally to the point I went into a season of ambiguity, indifference under performance devolving into depression. Since then, I have been on a journey to reclaim my life for myself and my family. This helped me learn about a variety of influencers that can help enable the proper level of rest and recovery to ensure I could show up with strength and stability.

My hope is my personal discovery story, along with the people from all walks of life discussing the various approaches, will lead you to the proper rest and recovery. So join me in the journey to learn how to live this one life to the fullest!
