It’s not a surprise to you that there is so much noise and nonsense that attempts to engage our focus and keep us distracted from the things that truly matter. And, if you’re one of the few men who has actually taken the time to identify what you really want, that doesn’t necessarily make things any easier.
Today, I am joined by former Navy SEAL and a lead instructor with Echelon Front, JP Dinnell. We talk about the importance of consistency towards your goals, why flexibility in training is critical, how to eliminate the things that keep your from meaning and significance, and living life on your terms.

Guys, as you know, we’ve had just about the entire Echelon Front team on over the past month or so and I couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to one of their lead instructors and my friend, JP Dinnell.
He spent nearly a decade with the SEAL teams and served in three combat deployments, his most recent with Task Unit Bruiser in Ramadi under the command of Jocko Willink. There he served as point man, machine gunner and lead sniper for Delta Platoon opposite of Chris Kyle.
Upon return from Iraq, helped rebuild and enhance the SEAL training programs into the highly effective programs they are today. Since then, he has become a lead instructor with Echelon Front helping leaders and communities enhance their organizations and companies.

The Iron Council
Just a quick timeout to tell you about our exclusive brotherhood, the Iron Council. Earlier in this podcast, JP talked about the importance of the SEAL teams as his brotherhood and, while a digital band of brothers will never take the place of having a band locally, it is a powerful step in helping men enhance their lives.
When you join us inside the Iron Council, you’ll tap into a group of men who have your back and will help you do the things necessary to succeed on every front – at home, in your business, and in the community.
You’ll have access to calls, challenges, assignments, the brothers, and our new onboarding system to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

“I still loved her and she still loved me but because we didn’t respect each other, and we didn’t communicate with each other properly, and because we were both being selfish, our marriage completely fell apart.” Tweet That— JP Dinnell
