When you experience pain, what do you do? How do you react? Do you avoid it at all costs? Or do you, embrace it, use it to propel you to greater success and accomplishments than you ever thought possible? Today we talk about how a single African tribe has come to totally dominate the running world, and what it means for you.

SHOW NOTES: http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/090

DISCLAIMER: Parts of this story that are a bit graphic, so if your children listen to this podcast with you, we would suggest that perhaps you listen to it first and determine whether you want them to hear it–it’s not explicit, we just describe some of the extreme pain that these Kenyan runners endure…

In the world of running, as of a few years ago, 5 American high school runners had ever broken the 4:00 mile…one high school in this Kenyan tribe (the Kalenjin Tribe) had 4 breaking a 4:00 mile at the same time! Seventeen American men in history have ever run a marathon under 2:10:00…32 Kalenjin men ran that fast in a single month recently.

What is it about this tribe that has led them to dominating the world of running…and why does it matter to you?  We talk about this and more in this episode.

Here’s what we talk about today:

 

  • The definition of “mental toughness”
  • 4-step process to “bounce back”
  • The Kalenjin Tribe’s right of passage (this is the graphic part…)
  • The importance of pain in driving you to greatness
  • The connection between pain and priorities

When you think of a leader, what do you think of? Do you think of Bill Gates secluding himself in a cabin for a week to think big things. A solitary leader who single-handedly uses his genius to solve every problem, launch every new initiative, and change the world? Well, in today’s episode we’re going to hang up your superman cape and share the 3 reasons that you can’t lead alone.

SHOW NOTES: http://www.mattmcwilliams.com/088

Everywhere we look there are leaders being held up as single-handedly taking on the world and fearlessly leading their companies to record profits and accolades.  Donald Trump, Mark Cuban, Jack Welch, Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffet, Bill Gates. Society tries to tell us that these leaders lead fearlessly and lead alone. But the truth is actually very different.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Individual leaders come to decisions slower than groups
  • Leaders often fail to seek input from their team
  • 3 reason why you can’t lead alone
  • The difference between getting input and “decision by committee”
