Although the likelihood of us facing a life and death survival situation or natural disaster is lower than it has ever been, there is value in learning how to deal with these potentially devastating life events.

Today, I am joined by my friend, MMA fighter and survivalist Josh Tyler to talk about his latest experience in a 21-day survival challenge, the skill sets we’ll need to survive, some of the biggest threats to our safety and security, and how to survive emergencies, natural disasters, and dangerous encounters.

  • Leveraging the mind for survival
  • Experience as a frame of reference
  • Redefining who we are
  • Ultimate Ninja Challenge recap
  • Becoming more efficient in life  
  • Battling a quitters mindset
  • Turning things over to a higher power
  • Dealing with sleep deprivation
  • The power of small wins
  • Outdoor survival school
  • Falling into the trap of comfort


Today, I am joined by my friend Josh Tyler who I consider to be one of the most capable men I know.

He’s an MMA fighter, a survivalist, and a man who knows a ton about how to keep himself alive in some of the most challenging and dangerous encounters we may face. He’s also been instrumental in the experiences we run with men and their boys and has personally helped me become more equipped to deal with some of life’s uncertainties.

He’s also some who looks for difficult situations and thrusts himself into those environments willingly to make himself more capable and proficient as a man.

Take notes today and enjoy my conversation with Josh Tyler


One of the biggest challenges men face on their journey to improve themselves is having to go at it alone. It can be done but there is something powerful to be found in banding together with other men.

And, that’s where a brotherhood of like-minded men comes into play. We call it the Iron Council and through helping thousands of men like you tap into this powerful network, we’ve seen men salvage devastated marriages, reconnect with their children in powerful ways, lose weight, gain confidence, develop clarity, and generally make themselves into stronger, tougher, better, more capable men.

We do this through our framework of communication and a proven system that is designed to push and test men in ways they may never have.
