Impact Over Income ft. Navy SEAL J.P. Dinnell, with Andy Frisella - MFCEO190
J.P. Dinnell is a Navy SEAL, business consultant, and Jocko Willink's partner at Echelon Front. In one of the best podcasts we've ever done, he and I talk about his SEAL training, his experience fighting in the battle of Ramadi, and lessons he's learned in war that very much apply to achieving success in business and real life. This is a special podcast. If you don't come away amazed by the insight and motivated by the stories, there's something wrong with you.
What makes your work worthwhile? Is it only worldwide influencers who make 9-figures that should feel good about themselves & their lives? Or can you feel great about life if you're a blue collar worker, a teacher, or someone who doesn't even earn $45,000 in income? Whether it's people who think "happiness is the new rich" or people who equate being famous with being impactful, there's a lot of confusion out there about how to evaluate the worth of a job & the value of a human life.
Are you "woke?" That's a phrase that's thrown around a lot these days. Sometimes it's used in politics to talk about people who say they really care about racism & injustice & sometimes it's used for dudes who think they've uncovered a worldwide conspiracy that nobody else knows about! But what does it really mean to be "woke," to have your eyes opened to what life is all about & what it takes to be happy & successful?
I recently had a friend admit to me that he didn't feel "worthy of success." The reality is...a lot of people feel like that. They feel like a fraud. They feel like they are running behind. They feel like there is some "secret formula" that's complicated & too sophisticated for them to understand. Listen...all of us feel lost & like we don't know what we're doing. In this episode, I talk about how to overcome that & we share OG stories about the early days of MFCEO. (Oh...& we announce contest winners!)
