E185: Transcending Fear and Achieving Bliss with Akshay Nanavati

Tribe of Millionaires Podcast

Everyone experiences pain and suffering, and Akshay Nanavati has definitely had his fair share. He has a history of drug addiction and suffered from PTSD after fighting in Iraq as a Marine. After the war, depression and alcoholism pushed him to the brink of suicide. But in the end, Akshay didn’t let those challenging times win and came out stronger for it. He overcame his fear and suffering, moving on to achieve great things. He consistently pushes the limits of his own worries, runs ultramarathons, and enters, instead of avoiding, hostile environments. He built a school in post-war Liberia, did humanitarian work, and established a global business, and now, Akshay is here to share how he found his worthy struggle — and how you can discover and live out yours too.

Consequence of Habit

“If you don’t choose a worthy struggle, struggle will choose you. And when it does, it will do far worse damage than the pain you will inevitably feel on the journey to greatness.” ― Akshay Nanavati, FEARVANA: The Revolutionary Science of How to Turn Fear into Health, Wealth and HappinessThis week I’m joined by United States Marine veteran, speaker, entrepreneur, ultra runner, and author Akshay Nanavati. Akshay is a man who has lived on both sides of the habit spectrum throughout his life. He’s battled drug addiction, PTSD, alcoholism, and survivors’ guilt from his time serving in Iraq. Since then, he has built a global business, run ultramarathons like a 24-hour run and a 50 miler around a cul-de-sac, written a book endorsed by the Dalai Lama, conducted humanitarian work in post-conflict zones, spent seven days in darkness, silence, and isolation, and explored the most hostile environments on the planet, from mountains to caves to polar icecaps.Having explored the extreme edges of the human condition, both within and without, Akshay has figured out exactly what it takes to tap into the limitlessness of the human potential and unleash the inner warrior that lives within us all.Fearvana Instagram | WebsiteSupport Consequence of Habit Subscribe: Apple Podcast | SpotifyCheck us out: Instagram | Twitter | Website
