During this discussion about Chris’ recent men’s retreat at Undisputed Mastery, he explains how he ended up there without knowing all the details, and how the decision to enter the unknown shifted his mentality. Chris tells us how danger is synonymous with growth and success, why being uncomfortable is something that we should all pursue, what he learned from letting go of his fear, and how mastery requires patience, repetition, and perseverance. We then get into some of the personal transformations Chris experienced on the retreat, including how to be vulnerable, how to let go of what is unnecessary, and how to apply vulnerability to everyday life. Finally, Chris gives us some parting words of wisdom as well as a reminder to support the incredible work being done by Operation Rescue Children.
