181. Breaking Barriers Through Adversity
In today's Inside Look episode, Bedros speaks with Steve Eckert, a US Marine, entrepreneur, husband, father, and instructor for The Project. The Project is a 75-hour self-development program for men who want to break through their limiting beliefs and level up in four critical areas of life: Faith, Fitness, Family, and Finance. As an instructor, it's Steve's responsibility to help unleash the beast inside of you and unlock your greatest potential. Bedros gets to the heart of what drives Steve, why so many men these days seem to be anxious and depressed, why doing “hard shit” is necessary for personal growth, the impact of your circle of influence, what it means to be a role model father, and so much more. Here's what you don't want to miss: 1:46 Why men must do "hard shit" to have a breakthrough and how social pressure is killing masculinity. 3:33 How the pendulum in life can swing too far to either side and create a human that's incapable of communicating or leading 5:40 The process you can go through to find you’re true capabilities and what we mean by "do hard shit" 9:55 How the decision to "break the cycle of bull shit in your life" can give you and your family a life they've never experienced 11:00 How adversity helps a man reach his higher-self and how our past has programmed us to see the world through a distorted lens 14:05 How Steve's upbringing "f**ked him up" and ultimately created his superpower that accelerated his success 14:53 How manufacturing adversity in your children will help them manage real hardship as they grow older 16:05 How disassociation can serve you well in business but negatively impact you in personal relationships 20:51 The men who've broken their cycle of vices and the common thread that ties them all together 27:38 What to expect from The Project and how negotiating with your inner voice will determine your success 30:44 How the human spirit will reject voluntarily suffering and how grateful it is after reaching the other side 32:46 How physical adversity will push someone to be truly honest with themselves 34:25 How men think differently than women and how compartmentalizing through hard shit can open your mind 38:00 The Subject Matter Experts within The Project and the intensity that lives among the team 38:58 How blood isn't necessarily thicker than water and how two unrelated people suffering together can create a bond 42:43 How being intentional in the four critical areas of life will help you create fulfillment 45:29 The first time Steve and Bredros met at Fitness Business Summit and how laser beam focus is key to success 48:00 The importance of emotionally and physically committing 100% to whatever work-life mix you're on 48:59 What it means to both Bedros and Steve to be a role model father 55:39 How a circle of influence should hold you to a higher standard and how to build a new tribe Connect with Steve Eckert Instagram Connect with Bedros Keuilian: Instagram Facebook Youtube Twitter LinkedIn Buy Man Up and get Bedros' High-Performance Leadership Course for FREE: Subscribe to My Channel for weekly videos:

The Power of Movement with Ido Portal
If you follow UFC and Conor McGregor, you already know him as the man who taught Conor how to move like a monkey. But you also might already know him as a world-renowned movement teacher of all disciplines. I’ve never met someone quite like Ido Portal. He is an obsessed student of movement and the body — which means he has also become an incredible teacher. Ido started studying different kinds of movement when he was a kid, got into martial arts, and from there traveled the world for years studying as many disciplines as he could. But he couldn’t find someone who could teach him what he was looking for — how our bodies are built to move and what they are fully capable of. He became the teacher he was looking for, and over the past decade and more, he has developed a world-wide movement culture. Not only has this caught the attention of elite athletes like Conor McGregor, he has also inspired millions of people to move their bodies in new ways through his workshops and social media. I was so impressed with Ido’s wisdom, clarity, and dedication to his craft. I’ve met few teachers like him and I was so inspired to keep moving my body in new ways after this conversation. Get ready to re-define what you think your body is built for in Episode 532. In This Episode, You Will Learn:Why being a good student is a missing art (8:12)Why there is no mastery of movement (11:30)The issue behind pro athletes getting depressed when they retire (26:15)Basic stretches Ido recommends doing daily to improve your body’s functionality (39:06)The most underrated factor in quality of life (40:20)The problem with “working out” (41:25)Why the story you tell yourself is more powerful than reality (1:03:10)How to practice meditation effectively (1:09:45)Why stillness is just as important as movement (1:14:00)Plus much more… Learn more about your ad choices.

Episode 129: The Story You Tell Yourself
It is good to be back brothers, and it is even better that I have you with me on this incredible journey. Let’s cut to the chase: the matrix has you. Yes, the Matrix has you. This episode marks the end of our relationship theme, but let it be said: we cannot be in life without being in relation to something or someone, and that includes the Matrix. Where am I getting at with all this? We need to first understand what that Matrix is, which is the story you tell yourself about yourself. Friends, everything begins with an individual or collective story, and from there you find the evidence to support your story with a psychological term called confirmation bias. The important work that I do is to teach my students how to write their own story, and to escape conditioning where others are writing your story for you. In this episode, I talk about how this happens, and more specifically, how you can take your power back. Just remember, it’s the story that holds everything together, and it’s that same story that manifests our effect. Brothers, only you know who you are in expression of form; not me. But listen up. I’m here to tell you that you’re a creator; the most powerful organic being on this planet. Fish breathe underwater, birds fly in the sky, and you my friend, create the world we know as reality. So when you are creating your story, your reality, and you want to change its course, you have to start with a different input to get a different output. So I’m offering you a process that is split into four parts. Number one: bringing consciousness to unconsciousness. Number two: separate the story from the facts. Number three, ask: does the story serve me? Step five: change the story. Brothers, walk beside me as we follow the steps to write the story we each deserve. Want to know more about what I do and how I can help you? Sign up for a free 45-minute session with me, and I’ll show you how this works!
