He is a renowned speaker, and bestselling author of The Warrior and The Monk: A Fable About Fulfilling Your Potential and Finding True Happiness. We talk about Greg's experiences at CrossFit, his time in the military, and life in law enforcement. He discusses courage, faith, commitment and leadership to show how we can live a more fulfilled life with real purpose.    When people ask Greg what he does, how does he like to reply? How to find our identity? What is a fire breather in crossfire terms? Greg came out of the academy and passed, but was not ready, what happened and what was the lesson? In the police department at the sheriff's office, Greg said "my brain and body were antagonistic” Greg explains. How Coach Greg Glassman, Crossfit Founder, shaped Greg to be the man he is today? Greg uses the term "humbleness by necessity," how does he apply that? Was there a moment when he had to become vulnerable and expose himself to get to where he is today? In this day and age, how do we go about finding great wisdom? The story of the Samurai and the Tea Master Capt Perry taught Greg about the position of defeat. What’s the physiology of success? The power that can come from the awareness of one mindful breath a day What does the word virtuosity mean to Greg?   LINKS   Greg Amundson https://gregoryamundson.com   Greg Amundson Instagram feed https://www.instagram.com/gregoryamundson/?hl=en   The Mojo Radio Show website themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter https://twitter.com/tmrspod   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.
