  1. Mr. Willink, firstly thank you to your service to our country and continued work to be a positive influence on people’s lives. I am a junior in high school and am applying to the United States Mitary Academy, Airforce Academy, and Naval Academy. I have been blessed with above average intelligence, physical ability, and a compassion for others. I’ve decided to apply because of my wanting to serve others as well as maximizing my potential as much as possible. However, I am afraid that I will crack under pressure and lack “common sense” when it comes to decision making. What is a leader’s main role and responsibility and do you think everyone has the potential to be a leader ? Thank you again.

  2. Bull Fight Critics Ranked In Rows
    Crowd The Enormous Plaza Full;
    But He’s The Only One Who Knows-
    And He’s the Man Who Fights The Bull.

    Just listened to podcast #117 where you had a conversation about dieting and working out. In particular you discussed what was too much vs too little. I was reminded of this poem which happened to be JFK’s favorite.

    Only the man who is about to fight the bull knows if he has done all he could and is worthy. Its easy to kid others… not so much with yourself.

    Enjoy the podcast and all the other great content you and team put out. My 7 year old daughter’s favorite book is the Way of the Warrior Kid. She is really excited for the release of the new one.

    Thanks.
