Becoming Ronin Podcast – #23 – The Life You Create, Gratitude, and David Goggins
In today’s episode Smitty and OB are excited to announce their first sponsor, The Cold Plunge. They are offering listeners of Becoming Ronin $150 off their first Cold Plunge purchase. Smitty then dives into a story that he’s never talked about in regard to being unhappy and the lightbulb moment that snapped him out of it. The guys talk about, ‘The Life You Create,’ and the importance of using gratitude every single day. Smitty talks about Ronin Challenges and using David Goggins as his inspiration – even though Goggins would NOT approve. Finally, the guys talk about one of the most important factors in growing and being inspired.
