Steve Willis - WWO Podcast Episode 18
SEARCHING FOR OUR IDENTITY
This week we're privileged to have on the show Steve Willis (a.k.a Commando Steve). Steve is one of Australia's top trainers, is a former competitive Crossfit Athlete and served a commando in Australia's elite special forces.
Steve is an incredibly deep thinker and has an impressive mindfulness practice - this leads to some thought provoking conversation, as well as some great advice all the listeners should take note of.
A surprising side of Steve is that despite his many successes he is still on a journey to find himself... and that's the truth he portrays in answer to his essay question:
"You have been a high performer in both the most secret of situations and the most public. What is a universal truth people should employ themselves, to be best prepared for their moment of success?"
We discussed Awareness, the realisation that your life is a result of your choices and the clarity in simplicity. This is one of our favourite epsiodes thus far.
Enjoy the Show.
