Fear is something that all of us have to deal with. Yet, too many men allow their fears to cripple them from what otherwise could be an incredibly meaningful life. Today, I’m joined by former Navy SEAL, Eddie Penney to talk about why fear drives too many of our life decisions.
We discuss hitting rock bottom and crawling out, the compound effect of small and simple tasks that lead to big results, the distinction between “fault” and “responsibility,” the power of therapy, overcoming means of sedation, and living life unafraid.
“If someone does not want to change, they’re not going to change.” Tweet That— Eddie Penney
My guest today is former Navy SEAL with over 20 years of military service. His name is Eddie Penney.
In addition to his incredible military service including his time assigned to Navy Special Warfare Development Group, he is the founder of Contingent Group which is an organization that provides safety/security training and needs for organizations all over the world. And, he is the author of his latest book, Unafraid: Staring Down Terror as a Navy SEAL and Single Dad.

The number one reason the men who join our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council, is for accountability. And, seeing as how that’s something Eddie and I discuss today as being a key factor for growth and progress, I thought I’d share a bit about what that looks like.
When you join the Iron Council, you’ll immediately unlock access to a new way of doing things and succeeding at the highest level possible. And, you’re going to be able to join what we call a Battle Team (a group of 10-15 dedicated men) that will help you strategize and execute your life’s Battle Plan.
These are guys who are going to support you, work with you, and hold your feet to the fire so that you can achieve more than you ever have before. To learn more and to join us, head to www.orderofman.com/ironcouncil.
