Travis Macy, professional ultra-endurance athlete, coach, teacher, husband and father of two joins us to talk about his new book, “The Ultra Mindset: An Endurance Champion’s 8 Core Principles for Success in Business, Sports and Life”. This book is a set of simple principles for daily life that includes embracing fear, rewriting the stories we tell ourselves, and mastering the art of asking for help.
“We constantly send our kids -and ourselves- the message that if you struggle something is wrong. If you’re doing something right, it will feel nice and easy; it will be fun. Struggle should be halted as soon as possible at all times because it will probably lead to suffering and, even worse, failure. The problem with the message above is that it flies in the face of what we know to be the truth about learning and general process, namely, that if you never struggled, growth is almost impossible because lack of growth only shows complacency with in a comfort zone.” – The Ultra Mindset
