Steven Benedict has mastered the champion mindset, developed during his time as a world class track and field athlete. The champion takes every experience and uses it for greater knowledge and growth. Healthy competition is inherently masculine. It’s shadow, comparison, leads to suffering. Listen in to learn how to walk this fine line with integrity. We also cover why we are our own biggest critics, how to have tough conversations, and why we need to take responsibility for the world around us.
