Primal King Podcast

If you live rural you definitely know what a bungee cord is. You've probably used them to tie down things or strap things in at some point. So...what does a bungee cord have to do with us holding back our progress? In this episode, Derek dives deep into stretching our capacity and how it is the single greatest factor in growing our mindset and mental toughness.  Most of us will never know why we are holding ourselves back because most of us won't ever push the limits far enough to know what we're actually capable of. It's hard to know how far we can stretch ourselves if we stay in our...

Primal King Podcast

Derek had a memory pop up from two years ago that can teach us all a HUGE lesson... Two years ago, his daughter wasn't able to get a single minute of playing time in her team's championship game. With Derek's history in sports, he wasn't used to not being in the game and it was even harder to see his daughter not get a single second of playing time.  This may not seem like the end of the world for most but kids take things like this pretty hard. They feel like it's "unfair" and want to become a victim. Is that attitude one that will help you have success though? When we go through our own...

Primal King Podcast

We always hear how much people that achieve greatness have to sacrifice. Almost everyone has their own "success story" that they talk about. It could be the amount of hours that they had to put in. It could be how hard they had to work. It may be how much money they invested or borrowed. These are stories that are talked about ALL THE TIME. But what about the cost of greatness that could impact our mental health? What about the amount of hate that could come your way at any time? After a week in Vegas and seeing what his former boss went through after some controversy, Derek is taking you...

Primal King Podcast

We all want to believe that we are irreplaceable, right? After all, most of us think we are the most important person ever created...but what if we actually aren't that important at all?  In the past couple weeks, we have seen two of the most respected and successful coaches in football retire and each of them had their replacement hired within 48 hours. We've all seen loved ones and famous people pass away and life still goes on. What do you think will actually happen when it's your time to pass on? Most likely the same thing... Understand that this shouldn't be all "doom and gloom"...

Primal King Podcast

Jeramiah Solven is a decorated former Army Ranger, an Ultra Racer (completing multiple 100+ mile races), a podcast host and a leadership and high performance coach. To say that he has completerd a few challenging things in his life would be a huge understatement.  In this converstaion, Derek and Jeramiah dive into not just deciding what you want in life like so many will try to do and most likely fail. Why is that? Because it always comes back to who you must become in order to achieve what you want. It's not a destination, it's an identity. This will be the hard hitting episode around...

Is Is "Science" and "Data" Ruining Your 6th Sense?

Primal King Podcast

It's hard to argue that we have moved from a spiritual world to a digital world. Data, metrics and measurements have taken over where we might have been able to clearly hear our intuition. We can complain about it but we're all guilty. If everything you do is only based on logic and data, are you missing out on a critical voice? Maybe even the voice of God? Derek believes so... In this episode, Derek does his best to lay out a couple of real world stories that made him realize that the 6th sense that some talk about isn't some sort of woo-woo, fairy dust stuff...it's as real as any data that...

Will 2024 be one of, if not the most, chaotic years most of us have ever seen? If so, what can we do to THRIVE despite any of the chaos? Do you have a gut feeling that we are walking into a pretty volatile year? So many people seem to have the feeling that we are.

It seems like the table has been set for a very challenging year. With that being said, we are not put here to live in a...

Primal King Podcast

Frank Sell has been an entreprenuer for over 20 years and has the bumps and bruises to show it. It all started with a $100 investment into a VHS tape to learn how to fix hail damaged cars. For anyone that has ever started and grown a business, they know exactly how hard it can be to get things up and going. On the other hand, having someone tell you what you'll make and when you'll work and not work can be equally as hard so Frank chose the path of an entrepreneur.  One of his famous quotes as to how he has achieved his success is "pound the pavement so hard that they'll send you a bill...

Primal King Podcast

Have you ever heard someone say "don't take it so personal?" Most of us have... Rather than not taking things personal, maybe we should. Maybe we SHOULD hold enough of a grudge to fuel the fire that otherwise might not be there. In this episode Derek goes through several examples of people that have taken things personally. From athletes to business owners and everyone in between, the best of the best always seem to be able to compartmentalize that darker energy and harness it for good. The next time someone tells you to "not take it so personal," you absolutely should consider taking it VERY...

Do you ever feel like everyday is the same? Does it seem like you have the same lifestyle, the same routine and mostly the same outcome? Do you end up telling your kids to just go away and play on the iPad or the gaming system?

Everyone has tough days when they're raising kids. There are plenty of times when it seems easier to just let them get what they want rather than dealing with another temper tantrum. It could seem easier to just be their friend and not the authority that they need.

Remember this...you aren't just teaching your kids. In fact, what you are teaching your kids is ultimately what they will teach their kids one day...and their kids one day...and on and on.

It is really easy to get caught up in the day to day stress and lose sight that what we do and how we live is exactly what we are teaching our kids' kids one day. In this episode, Derek tries to get you to zoom out a little and see the real picture of legacy!
