What if losing everything – your prestigious career, your title, your health – wasn’t the end, but a beginning?
Meet James G. Butler, a man trained as a superhuman. This is a guy who could deadlift 500 lbs, and did the equivalent of a triathlon every day.
The Canadian Government spent more than a million dollars on his training.
James is an Afghanistan veteran, and was a military diver in an elite unit that took only a handful of applicants.
His career was cut short after a catastrophic lung collapse during a dive. He woke up eight days later (and several kilograms lighter) with his body full of tubes, and a life that would never be the same.
In this episode, James goes deep about how he handled the ‘now what?’ after his career in the military ended.
How can you source real power and identity, independent of your job and status?
How can you cultivate true success – not just the trappings of success?
And how can you feel content being a super human after you’ve been super-human?
Please enjoy this powerful conversation with James G. Butler.
Quotes by James:
“I wasn’t looking for success, I was looking for an unshakeable identity that I would create.”
“The only way you can be powerful is by being the most whole you.”
“One of the easiest ways to power up is to go backwards and clean up all of the messes from the past.”
