"Habits and your daily disciplines cast a vote for the person you want to be and for the person that you're becoming."

"If you want to own the identity and feel rooted in the identity of being a meditator, there's only actually one thing you need to do and that's either an obstacle or an opportunity, is just meditate regularly." 

In this episode, we have the privilege of interviewing Eric Brown. Eric is a passionate advocate for personal transformation and growth, co-creator of Phoenix Culture and creator of Warrior 100, a powerful initiative aimed at fostering personal discipline and wellbeing. In our discussion, we dive deep into the practices of self-discipline, mindfulness, and the true value of personal development.

Our conversation highlights the tangible benefits of integrating these practices into our daily routines, and how they can ultimately become a seamless part of our identity.
