There is so much to get distracted by these days. With all of our duties, responsibilities, and obligations, it’s easy to get lost in trivial and meaningless activities and pursuits. But when we learn to eliminate and remove the distractions, we free ourselves to find something truly meaningful to obtain.
My guest today is a master at doing just that. His name is Rudy Reyes. He is a former Marine Recon, author of his book, Hero Living, and host of the FOX hit show, Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test. Today, we talk about the power of a mission, developing the “executive” mindset, the strength of the inner story you tell yourself, how, when, and why to compartmentalize emotion, and going deep on pursuits that matter.
“Our country needs to be reminded of patriotism, sacrifice and old world values, and that’s what this show does.” Tweet That— Rudy Reyes
Rudy has taken his immense combat experience (including multiple combat tours abroad) and molded himself into a force to be reckoned with. But it hasn’t come without a price. Rudy talks openly about his battles with mental health and substance abuse and, during this conversation, gets real about what it takes to go from the top, to the bottom, to digging yourself back up to the top.

Order of Man Merchandise
I went for a walk this morning and noticed it’s starting to get a little colder out there. Which, for me, means it’s hunting season. That has nothing to do with what I wanted to share with you but something I just enjoy.
What I did want to share with you is that we finally have our Order of Man original hoodies back in stock! And, on my walk this morning, it did the trick to keep me warm and looking good. In fact, I almost caused multiple accidents as the men who drove by kept asking where I got my hoodie from and all the ladies dropping their kids off at school couldn’t take their eyes off me.
All this to say, you probably need your own Order of Man hoodie which you can get at store.orderofman.com. But remember you’ve been warned, you will attract both wanted and unwanted attention.
All jokes aside, thank you for the support, gents. It means the world to me. Again, head to store.orderofman.com.
