In Episode 2740 of The Strong Life Project podcast, Shaun O’Gorman dives deep into a concept that holds many of us back: the impossible mission of trying to please everyone. Drawing from his background in high-stress, high-performance environments, including as a former Police tactical K9 handler, Shaun breaks down why the urge to meet everyone’s expectations can be both mentally exhausting and utterly counterproductive.

As someone who has faced the dark corridors of PTSD, depression, and suicidal ideations, Shaun speaks candidly about how a people-pleasing mentality can lead to a lack of authenticity and ultimately contribute to mental health issues. This episode is filled with actionable insights and practical tools for anyone—from CEOs and executives to police officers and military personnel—who wants to up their game in leadership, culture, and stress management.

This episode will challenge you to rethink your priorities and encourage you to take responsibility for your life. Because in the end, if you try to please everyone, you’ll end up pleasing no one—including yourself. If you’re looking to live a high-performing existence, this is an episode you can’t afford to miss.
