In Episode 2758 of the Strong Life Project, Shaun O’Gorman delves into a subject that’s crucial for everyone, especially those in high-stress, high-performance environments: “Be Inspired, Don’t Be Intimidated.” Shaun pulls from his wealth of experience, not only as a high-performance consultant but also as a former Police tactical K9 handler who’s battled PTSD and depression. He underscores the point that often we look at others—be it CEOs, military leaders, or successful figures in any walk of life—and feel overwhelmed rather than inspired.

Shaun emphasizes that intimidation is a choice. You can choose to see someone’s achievements as a benchmark for what’s possible, rather than a yardstick by which you fall short. Drawing from real-life case studies and personal experiences coaching top-tier professionals, Shaun outlines practical steps for flipping the script. Instead of feeling bogged down, learn how to extract inspiration and valuable lessons from those who’ve achieved what you aspire to.

Shaun offers actionable tips for stress management, resilience, and most importantly, shifting your mindset. Whether you’re a CEO, a Police Officer, a Military personnel, or anyone who feels the weight of their environment, this episode is a must-listen if you aim to live a high-performing existence. Because at the end of the day, the only person you should compare yourself to is who you were yesterday. Take responsibility for your life, and let others inspire you to become the best version of yourself.
