His insight on the psychology of recognizing and executing in high-stake moments has made him the go-to guy for anyone wanting to win at a higher level.

When he talks about experiencing the whole spectrum of emotional experience and not getting lost in it, there is a 2,500 year old philosophy of Buddhism which also recommends to know your experience but to beware of the harm that can come from clinging to it. This is happiness because you can learn to have a resilient mind. Great information here, but only helpful if one puts it into practice.

Tom = hands down the best interviewer on social media

OMG, I love these. I don't use the word "Love" as a lazy catch-all, I really do love them. One aspect that I find inspiring and very funny, is how innovative Tom is. I believe he legitimately wants to sit down with these amazing people and pick their brains, so he devised a format (show) that allows and validates that desire. In the end I see a dude eating his candy in front of everyone.

I think the Dr. G was talking about Nipsey Hussle when he talked about the kid with the tattoos on his face! Just my opinion!

Full Context begins @7:30

@8:25 "A rising tide floats all boats"
@9:13 "None of us do this thing alone, and if we're really gonna go the distance, and really step into the frontier to do the amazingly difficult challenging things, we need to lock arms to stay in the trenches long enough. And what happens for most people is we lock arms, we say, 'oh yeah, let's go get it,' and then we lock arms, and then as soon as it's hard, the brain kicks in, and the survival mechanisms in the brain are stronger than the thriving mechanisms. So the survival mechanisms light up, and what do we do? We save our own ass, and we unlock our arms, and we take care of ourselves. That is how people fray in rugged and stressful environments--emotionally stressful environments. We unlock. And so the extraordinary are able to stay the course, locked arms, because they're mission-minded, they're really clear about what they want to experience, and they bet on each other."

Note to self: He's primarily talking about football, but can you carry this mindset to your intimate relationships? With family, friends, partners? Try it. See what happens.

The first time i saw this interview in 2018 did not impacted to me that much, 6 months from there now in 2019, i feel so much respecto for Michael Gervais. Thanks Tom and Mike.

12:20 I have to write this down so I'm making a public note.
Gonzalo Albillos Prieto
Incredible interview! WOW
Aditi Rishi
Can we please have him again

FOPO - fear of other people’s opinions. So true! Something magical happens when you stop worrying about what others think about you and start doing YOU.
Gieo Pensoneault
Another GREAT SHOW! I look forward to attending an episode live in the studio.
Sahra Pak
Thanks for this interview! And FYI the “good research” at 18:05 about the Four Horsemen and how to build a healthy communication/marriage is from the incredible and work done by Julie and John Gottman. The research on heathy and unhealthy couples by the Gottmans started back in the early 70’s and continues still to this day with amazing results healing marriages and keeping couples (who want to, and do the work!) together.

Best one yet!
