GREG HARDEN | Create Sanity in an Insane World



It’s no surprise that there is an increasing amount of insanity in the world today, most of it outside of our control. But there is also an immense amount of insanity taking place in the space 6” between our ears – our brains. Fortunately, that’s the realm we can control and, once we learn to do just that, we can achieve sanity in the otherwise chaotic experience of life.

My guest today is mindset coach to some of the greatest athletes to play like Tom Brady, Desmond Howard, and Michael Phelps, to name a few. His name is Greg Harden and he makes the case for creating sanity out of our lives. We talk about becoming an expert on one subject, the narcissistic tinge of “self-love” and a better alternative, why you must learn to grow through adversity, not merely go through it, four basic needs every man desires and how he can fulfill those for himself, and learning to know yourself and embrace complete acceptance of who you are.

I need you to be perfectly ok with not being perfect.Tweet That— Greg Harden

Guys, on the subject of chaos, you’re familiar with it. Break-ups, layoffs, bankruptcies, and everything in between. You don’t have to fight those battles alone. In fact, you’re not supposed to. For as long as men have been walking this planet, we’ve operated in tribes, in packs, in gangs.

But somewhere along the way in developing ways to be more connected through technology than we ever have before, we forgot what happens when men band together towards common objectives and against common demons.

That’s where the Iron Council comes in. Over a thousand men operate inside the Iron Council all with a singular pursuit – to better their own lives by learning skills and service to their brothers beside them.

We’re opening our brotherhood back up again in two weeks and, if you head to and drop your email in, I will send you an early email before anyone else on how you can band with us and learn the frameworks needed to win and thrive.

Again, head to
