065: THE ALPHA360 - A 60-day Challenge for Men to Alpha Up
Meet the top five finishers in the first-ever Alpha360, a 60-day challenge consisting of difficult daily tasks requiring each man to stretch himself physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and with their loved ones. Hear about why they were interested in this challenge, what kept them going, and how they learned to Alpha Up and improve their lives in 60 of the final days of the historically-difficult year that was 2020.
All combined, the men in this show are fathers to 24 children. One of these Alphas is a dapper dirt bike braaaper and process engineer for Intel, living and raising his two young children in the Pacific Northwest. One is a therapist and life coach who has endured 27 surgeries and has been on forearm crutches for 40 years. The fittest man here is a 56 year-old grumpy drama teacher and actor who adopted all five of his children and found a noticeably different environment in his home as he focused on what was right in his world, worked out with a buddy and read several non-fiction books on "how not to die."
One man owns a highly-successful catering company in Las Vegas, chairs AA meetings and listens to podcasts and audiobooks on multi-tasking walks every single day, even though he walks 15-20 miles a day in his profession. And lastly, the hog-hunting earth-mover Australian who won the Alpha360 challenge after inspiration from his doctor who told him he was "not obese, but FAT", and his biochemist father who convinced him to give up energy drinks and as a result now drinks only water. Hear how they changed their mood and their mindset about life by writing 30 words of gratitude every day, prayed or meditated, avoided addictions, journaled and more fully engaged with their families. These men show what it means to make a commitment to leveling up by tracking and reporting their daily progress and using a tribe of brothers to improve their attitude, actions, and attributes.
