“If we don’t challenge ourselves, in big form and consistently, then we get weaker and weaker until we're afraid to take on challenges.” - Mark Divine

Could YOU survive Navy Seal hell week? Steve Costello just did. Today, I’m speaking with Mark Divine, the founder of Sealfit Kokoro Camp, about what it takes to steel your mind for something incredibly challenging and difficult, and why you would even do something like that to yourself in the first place!
As Mark told me, “If we don’t challenge ourselves, in big form and consistently, then we get weaker and weaker until we afraid to take on challenges.” The fact of the matter is that most people, especially in modern western societies, do not subject themselves to incredibly stressful and difficult experiences regularly. Whereas these circumstances were a part of normal human life for much of history, they have largely gone away, and the result is that humans are not as well-connected with themselves and their resiliency as they could be. They simply do not know what they are capable of.
Mark Divine is working to help humans realize more fully their potential, the resiliency that they have within, and what they are capable of dealing with and accomplishing. While something like Sealfit Kokoro Camp is an incredibly difficult and trying thing to put yourself through, the rewards are stunning. Learn more about how you can live the most fulfilling life through trying times on this episode of the James Swanwick Show!
