The Lesson: The phrase “peaceful warrior” may seem somewhat contradictory, but there may be more to it than you think. This lesson on spiritual weight training in particular covers everything from the difference between feeling positive emotions and acting as a positive person; suggestions for people going through life transitions; and how to take care of your health when you’re young.
Notable Excerpt: “Many people have heard that saying ‘when the student is ready, the teacher appears’ – it becomes sort of a cliché. But I think what it means – ‘when the student is ready’ – is that any of us, whenever we’re really paying attention, the teacher appears everywhere.”
The Guest: Over the course of his complex career, Dan Millman has become an expert on the way of the peaceful warrior. In fact, he has published 17 books on it, one of which has been translated into 29 languages and turned into an intensely spiritual cinematic masterpiece. Additionally, Millman has become a spiritual mentor to thousands of students through his online eCourse programs.
The Host: After spending years of his young life and athletic career struggling with his own emotional wellbeing, a crippling injury left Lewis Howes without an identity and without any work. Instead of wallowing in self-pity, however, Howes recreated himself as a multi-million dollar media producer, motivational speaker, bestselling author, and podcast host. The ex-football player now spends his days chatting with the most inspirational icons of this generation on his School of Greatness podcast.
Books: Howes is the author of the New York Times bestselling book “The School of Greatness”: an in-depth collection of lessons and wisdom that he has gathered from interviewing hundreds of the world’s greatest role models and thinkers. Howes’s latest book, “The Mask of Masculinity”, is based on his experience with the dangerous stereotypes and expectations that are placed on men in modern society.
