HOLD THE STANDARD. I love the phrase. On this podcast I interview Logan Gelbrich behind the maxim. We cover a lot. If you\u2019re into mindset, perfomance psychology, personal accountability and growth, you\u2019ll dig this episode. Self-defense isn\u2019t always about a confrontation with someone else. Sometimes it\u2019s understanding how to win the fight inside your head. I think this conversation will surprise some of you.

How To Defend Yourself From Your Self
Psychologist Jeff DeTeso returns to discuss how he uses the CYCLE OF BEHAVIOR method in his practice to help veterans dealing with PTSD as well as others suffering from fear-based issues. My contention is simple: when we look directly into the face of fear and acknowledge how it influences all decisions and emotional \u2018states\u2019 we begin to regain a sense of self-control and renewed mental strength. Enjoy this episode! Many more to come.
