With more than 75 guests on his podcast, Larry gives us fair rules and tips on how to raise our kids correctly. I'm excited to say that this episode includes a main focus on being the best father you can be, as you watch your kids play their sport. If you're still too young to be a father, listen with awareness. If you're a father listening to today's episode, embrace the honesty, and take notes! Much love!

In today's podcast, we welcome Mark Divine to the squad. Mark is a New York Times best-selling author, CEO/founder of SEALFIT and NavySeals.com, a former Navy Seal (retiring as a commander in 2011), with an exceptional expertise in mediation and visualization. I'm more than excited to introduce Mr. Divine, as our conversation is filled with key pointers to improve your game. Mark can help you transform your life, as he was taught to "EMBRACE the suck". This man finds joy in hardships, and you can too. Think about it for a second... If you can learn to love doing things that you're afraid of, 'hard work' will NOT be an obstacle. As important as one's work ethic can be, Mark's philosophy on visualization (and the power of concentration) is a personal KEY to my definition of success. Ready for the transformation? Take notes, then take action!

(3:51) Mark's background story

(10:17) Using visualization to accomplish goals | the power of concentration

(25:48) Understanding the difference between meditation and visualization | developing awareness/mindfulness | practicing imagination

(40:00) Being more purposeful with what you're trying to develop in your mind | understanding the core ways of how the mind works - critical thinking, accessing memory, visual (using imagery), direct perception (in the present)

(45:22) Training someone to get "in the zone"

(54:40) Revisiting Mark's meditation practices

(1:03:50) How to recover from trauma (or an extreme hardship; death, etc.) | cultivating non-attachment | breath, visualization, movement

(1:10:40) The traditional meditation: "Who am I?"

(1:12:34) What it means to "embrace the suck" | getting comfortable with challenge | training yourself to LOVE the tough work
