Episode 155 In this solo episode, Nick reveals how crucial committing to a goal is for his life. He explains how success can and should be broken down to the simplicity of a first step, and why focusing on the task in front of you relives the pressure of how large a vision might be. Nick shines light on the fact that many people find reasons to postpone their goals when life gets difficult, which is why commitment can be so powerful. He also admits that there are warning signs to this level of dedication, and how accountability can help prevent burnout. "Sometimes having someone hold you accountable is not to make sure you actually do it, sometimes it's to make sure you don't over-do it." Nick poses the challenge to commit to something--right now-- for 2023 that will be really hard for you. Use this episode to motivate you to commit to something that will grow, stretch, and develop you as a leader, an athlete, and a better human.

Episode #154 – Nick is joined by Leif Babin, former Navy SEAL Platoon Commander and co-author of the NY Times Bestseller: Extreme Ownership. They discuss the most prominent distinctions between military and civilian leaders, how powerful leadership is about considering other people’s perspectives, why simplicity in your communication makes you more impactful, and how ‘silent leaders’ can tend to be the best ones. Nick and Leif also recount gripping stories from their military experiences and how they shaped their future endeavors. “If you interact with other humans in any capacity, you are a leader.” Even without a ‘title,’ you are a leader. Leif passionately speaks to the need to own this responsibility and positively impact the lives of those around you. This episode jumps into practical, inspiring commentary on our lives from two tremendous leaders. About Leif Babin: A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Leif served thirteen years in the Navy, including nine in the SEAL Teams. As a SEAL platoon commander in SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, he planned and led major combat operations in the Battle of Ramadi that helped the “Ready First” Brigade of the US Army’s 1st Armored Division achieve victory. Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War. Leif returned from combat and became the primary leadership instructor for all officers graduating from the SEAL training pipeline. There, he reshaped SEAL leadership training to better prepare the next generation of SEAL officers for the immense challenges of combat. During his last tour, Leif served as Operations Officer and Executive Officer at a SEAL Team where he again deployed to Iraq with a Special Operations Task Force. He is the recipient of the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and a Purple Heart. Upon his departure from active duty, Leif co-founded Echelon Front, a premier leadership consulting company, where he serves as President, leadership instructor, speaker, and strategic advisor. Echelon Front helps others build their own high-performance winning teams.

Nick begins by recapping the smashing success of BPN's 10th Birthday weekend. Thank you to all who came out for Athletic Club, our pop-up shop, and our VIP after-party! We had people fly in from Colorado, New Jersey, San Diego, even Amsterdam. Thank you! Choosing Your Hard literally applies to every single person, because every person has difficult decisions to make throughout their day. Don't let your mind venture off into the extreme examples of "hard"; such as running a marathon, starting a business by yourself, or chipping away at student loans. Those definitely qualify, but bring it personal, as well. Choosing to read before bed instead of watching a TV show on Netflix, doing the dishes for your spouse when you come home from a long day, or being patient with the chaos of the first week of school. Nick breaks down the mindset of Choosing Your Hard and the benefits that it brings to the longevity and sustainability of your life.

Choosing the right supplement is a guarantee that it will work for you. A quality manufacturer is also of great importance. Luckily, there are plenty of good review sites out there now to help you choose the best option. This one usually helps me a lot.
