Ep. 31: Sean Douglas - From Rock Bottom to Resilience Coach
5 days ago
Today, we revisit a theme we have explored many times on the show: resilience. Resilience provides us with agency or control of our circumstances. Even though we live in one of the safest times in human history, we also live in the midst of high levels of uncertainty and ambiguity. If we want to be able thrive and perform well, cultivating resilience is an incredibly important skill and practice. My guest is all about that. Meet Sean Douglas. Sean works in the United States Air Force and is a resilience trainer, author and speaker. Nine years ago however, Sean faced the lowest point of his life. He was staring down the barrel of gun and almost committed suicide. Sean shares what he was feeling during this episode, and more importantly, what he did to bounce back and regain control of his life. Since then, Sean has used this experience to help others. He trains people to become mentally, physically, spiritually and socially resilient. He combines his military and leadership training (he spent time as a drill instructor and has that drill instructor intensity!) with his personal experiences to help his clients. We talk about all this and lots more.

Well worth a listen!
Ben always offers interesting guests and a fresh perspective on cutting issues of the day. His 'no holds barred' approach ensures that a given topic will be thoroughly scrubbed. I've listened to a variety of his podcasts and have always found them entertaining and informative. I highly recommend them!
