  • [ 17:05 ] We learn some of the tricks Joost enforces when combating crippling fears.                                                                   


  • If you consider quitting at any point in life, with anything, let that thought only pass through momentarily. If you entertain those feelings for too long they will return and you will be inclined to act on them. As Joost says, “there has never been a guy that’s been on the fence about quitting that ever finished.”
  • “The hero and the coward feel the same. It’s how you react that makes all the difference.” When you live well within your comfort zone you will be more likely to make excuses to turn down any “uncomfortable” situation. When your ultimate goal is to be comfortable you will never find satisfaction.
  • When you encounter fear the best way to combat it is to have a purpose. Having a purpose and focus give you the determination, the tunnel vision, to accomplish and achieve your goals.
