This interview is one of the most fascinating I have done.
I have always had a strong attraction to the warrior archetype, in film, literature, etc. Yet politically, I am nearly universally opposed to armed conflict, especially the vague and dubious nature of the wars of the last 20 years.
Like the Chris Kyle character in the movie, Jake also served 4 tours, dealt a fair share of killing for his missions, and tapped in to the power of purpose and brotherhood on the battlefield.
Jake and SEALs like him are the most refined, disciplined technologically advanced and effective fighting unit the world has ever seen. Impressive by any standard
Jake is brilliant, complex and proud of his service to this country, his brothers in the field, and his purpose. Talking with him inspired my inner warrior to come alive.
Leave the politics for another conversation, and check out this tale of another kind of “American Sniper.”
Dating and Relationships coach Maya Diamond is here with is to discuss what to do, how to act and how to be in your first dates and encounters with a woman.
So much of the modern “dating advice” these days is just simply confusing. More often, I’m hearing guys online and offline are saying things like:
“I want to tell her I like her, but then I’ll lose my power”
“How do I pay for dinner without seeming like a ‘nice guy’ that she’ll walk all over?”
“If I give her a compliment, she won’t be attracted to me”
While there is always some truth to these kind of statements, it’s an unfortunate trend. Especially now, words like ’neg’ and ‘cocky funny’ are embedded in the dating-vernacular and guys are spouting these statements like they’re somehow Laws of Nature vs Training Wheels.
