Stop Thinking, Start Digging with Dave Maddock: Bullet Coaching, Director of Mental Performance

British Army Veteran and Mental Performance coach Dave Maddock continues to push himself far beyond his comfort zone to build resilience.  He dug a hole for 24 consecutive hours, and ran the London Marathon carrying a 42 kg (92.5 lbs) sandbag on his shoulders. In these challenging pursuits, he’s gained greater insight on how to train the mind to endure discomfort.

In this conversation with ReliaQuest Mental Performance coaches Derin McMains and Dr. Nicole Detling, Dave shares why he creatively challenges himself to continue to build the toughness that life demands. You’ll hear him discuss:

  • The value of making yourself uncomfortable
  • High Performance vs. Higher Performance
  • How personal standards can increase your resilience
