We have discussed Evan Owen in an earlier episode of the WHF Podcast, but wanted to get him for a short sit-down with us to go through some finer details of what it is that drives him to be in the gym every day.
Including quick trip to Bubba’s Biscuits, who by the way are our favorite cheat day cheats of all time here in Columbia… Hands down…
Evan has had huge success with rebuilding who he is physically. We suspect the mental aspect of what helps keep him pushing onward has always been there. Perhaps Workhorse has only helped expose a little more and quicker maybe otherwise he would have on his own.
We talk through friendly competitive comparisons and how to find ways to help you see where you can level up your growth. Evan is a very insightful and thoughtful person who has a good story to share with us all about his fitness journey thus far.
We are super proud of you Evan. Keep up the great work and ‘NEVER GIVE UP’ !
This is a jam session on this post by Ryan Michler where he goes through a few things that he’s suggesting that will help you have a fullfilling and meaningful day/life.
Plan Your Day
Pursue Meaningful Hobbies
Surround Yourself With Winners
Say “No” To Things You Don’t Like
Say “Yes” To Things you Do Like
Do Things That Scare You
Turn OFF The TV
Read Good Books
Live To A Higher Code
I too sent this post to a few friends and had similar results to Ryan… I was a little surprised that this seems overwhelming for most. I think it’s mostly because we don’t take the time to think about the way we live. By that I mean, we lack a ‘code’ for living. The Samurai had Bushido, we need a more modern form of Bushido – heck maybe it’s all we really need.
Let’s go through his list line by line and see what’s behind it.
Eric is a long time OG member, dating all the way back to the pre-workhorse days at Iron Tribe… dang…
He is active Military in the Air Force, recently back home in the USA after deployment and also legit weirdo and we love him.
Eric does some pretty amazing and insane races/runs like 100 milers and many other Ultras (anything longer than a Marathon). Along the way he’s learned a lot about Never Giving Up and seeing things through. We could all learn from Eric in this area of life. He is also eternally optimistic and it’s something we look up to in him.
Imposter syndrome can be defined as a collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist despite evident success. ‘Imposters‘ suffer from chronic self-doubt and a sense of intellectual fraudulence that override any feelings of success or external proof of their competence.
Let’s take a look at Imposter Syndrome and how Warrior’s overcome it. It all starts with taking a look back at your accomplishments and being grateful for the path you’ve traveled so far.
It’s hard for Imposter Syndrome to win when you take the focus off of yourself and put the focus on others and helping them to win.
