Growth Lessons from the Ice Bath and Retreat Breakdown – E90

How can you succeed while doing less? Focusing on the present may allow you to create more value. Mandi Ellefson describes her Wim Hof ice bath meditation experience as she shares tips on overcoming fear. 

Key Ideas:

  1. Taking deep breaths to center yourself grounds you in the present and helps you see past your fear. Mandi describes how she was able to shift from fight-or-flight to a place of calm. “I went from suffering to surrender,” she explains. This shift changed her perception of the experience, not the experience itself. [5:09]
  2. As you scale, the challenges don’t become easier; they become larger. What changes is our ability to cope. We become so adept at managing them that they seem small as we continue to grow. [6:23]
  3. People tend to react to fear in three ways: resistance, avoidance, or owning it. [7:35]
  4. The word ‘responsible’ actually refers to the ability to respond. Being responsible allows us to create anything that we want and do it on our own terms, proactively. [10:19]
