“If you don’t choose a worthy struggle, struggle will choose you. And when it does, it will do far worse damage than the pain you will inevitably feel on the journey to greatness.” ― Akshay Nanavati, FEARVANA: The Revolutionary Science of How to Turn Fear into Health, Wealth and Happiness

This week I’m joined by United States Marine veteran, speaker, entrepreneur, ultra runner, and author Akshay Nanavati. Akshay is a man who has lived on both sides of the habit spectrum throughout his life. He’s battled drug addiction, PTSD, alcoholism, and survivors’ guilt from his time serving in Iraq. Since then, he has built a global business, run ultramarathons like a 24-hour run and a 50 miler around a cul-de-sac, written a book endorsed by the Dalai Lama, conducted humanitarian work in post-conflict zones, spent seven days in darkness, silence, and isolation, and explored the most hostile environments on the planet, from mountains to caves to polar icecaps.
Having explored the extreme edges of the human condition, both within and without, Akshay has figured out exactly what it takes to tap into the limitlessness of the human potential and unleash the inner warrior that lives within us all.
