GIVING UP IN THE NEW YEAR

ACADEMY PODCAST # 52 - MY NEW YEAR'S EVE MEDITATING WITH MONKS

Brian and Dhani get into cutting out the noise and really focusing on what needs to happen to make progress. They discuss how accepting your emotions can really provide insight, what happens if you're not saying "hell yeah!" to something, and how, from meditation circles to CrossFit competitors, we all have tribes.

Here are 3 key takeaways from this episode:
