Dan Brule, Non-stop Change and the 4th Pillar of Achievement
This week I had the chance to speak with one of the pioneers and leaders in the science of breathwork, best-selling author Dan Brulé. What stood out for me is how down-to-earth, optimistic and truly excited Dan is about this work more than 40 years later! He’s taught all over the world, coaching people like Tony Robbins, SEALFit founder Mark Divine and Pitch Anything author and entrepreneur Oren Klaff, who names breathwork the “4th pillar of achievement”.
I’m honored and excited to interview Dan as one of the experts participating in the Breathe into Breakthrough Summit I’m hosting on 10/23 and 10/24, featuring leading experts in the breathwork and performance arena.
Yes, we breathe thousands of times each day. But the magic happens when you learn to consciously harness your breathing patterns and start to understand the physiological connection between your breath and your mental/emotional states. When you can tap into that level of awareness, you can choose where to focus your thoughts and emotions regardless of circumstances.
Feeling overwhelmed with family, work and non-stop uncertainty? You can use it as a reminder to take 5 to regain your focus with this simple Box Breathing technique developed by Mark Divine, CEO at Unbeatable Mind & SEALFIT.
Yes, there’s a lot going on in the world right now, with no shortage of things to worry about. But worrying isn’t problem solving. In fact, it leads to low energy and depression instead of fueling the kind of creativity and resilience we really need right now.
And if you need some inspiration, check out one of my favorite TED talks (and based on the 23+ million views, almost everyone else’s), with happiness expert Shawn Achor.
Prefer the Cliff Notes version? Check out this list of Shawn’s favorite 2-minute happiness habits, including his take on breathwork summed up here:
We had (Google employees) take their hands off their keyboards two minutes a day. And go from multitasking, to simply watching their breath go in and out. This raises accuracy rates. Improves levels of happiness. Drops their stress levels. And it takes two minutes.
It’s a privilege to be able to share this powerful work with you as a key to greater focus, connection and of course as the 4th pillar in the foundation for lasting achievement😊
