Ep 056 - What Is Your Passion? What Is Your Purpose?

Ep 056 - What Is Your Passion? What Is Your Purpose? Anthony Droz

“The key to life is service; not to a device, but to your home and humanity.”

“We each have a choice to make when confronted with hardship, but what we do before that can make it easier.” — Anthony Droz

On last week’s episode we talked about how our human hands are used in many ways — for both destructive and peaceful purposes. On today’s episode Tim Hoover and Steve Mittman are honored to have Marine Corps Veteran Anthony Droz from Outward Bound as their special guest. Some amazing and profound topics are discussed, some of which include:

  • Energy vampires and positive-energy providers

  • Why and how you’re actually hurting someone if you enable them to be unhappy

  • The “warrior ethos” — what it isn’t — and feeling secure and comfortable in your skin

  • The martial arts are NOT about getting “banged up” — rethink your training if that’s your take on it

  • How and why you must maintain the warrior ethos, otherwise you lose it — as the case with anything important in life

  • Who does Anthony believe was mentally, physically, and spiritually evolved in a way that we, today, can not even fathom

  • Proof of how responsibility, challenge, and adversity leads to one becoming stronger mentally and physically — and creates confident, self-reliant individuals

  • We’ve talked before about the importance of embracing being uncomfortable; Anthony further reminds us of how that’s the place where we learn to grow and thrive

  • The concept of the different belts in the martial arts — changing color and leading up to a black belt by itself — simply by training and being engaged with the elements

  • Why keeping a fire is similar in many ways to finding, nurturing, and continually pursuing your purpose here in this world — “What is your passion? What is your purpose?”

After listening to this episode, what are your thoughts on the words "transference" and "experience?" What single word would you use to sum up this experience we call life?

Ep 034 - Never Alone, The Spirit In Us and All Around Us

Our motto with Attack Life, Not Others is Mind, Body, Spirit — meaning one must be equally well-conditioned in all 3 of these areas in order to attack life and thrive. Mind and Body are both pretty straightforward, yet we often get asked about the Spirit. What is it? Does it have to do with religion. Can one have spiritual strength without being religious? In this very brief, yet profound episode, Sensei Hoover talks about:

  • Find your faith — find your purpose — find your life

  • We were never meant to be on this planet alone

  • Simply be a good soul, do the right thing

  • Believe in a Creator, believe in God

“My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.” ― Albert Einstein

“We must become so alone, so utterly alone, that we withdraw into our innermost self. It is a way of bitter suffering. But then our solitude is overcome, we are no longer alone, for we find that our innermost self is the spirit, that it is God, the indivisible. And suddenly we find ourselves in the midst of the world, yet undisturbed by its multiplicity, for our innermost soul we know ourselves to be one with all being.” ― Hermann Hesse
