Charisma on Command has over four million subscribers on Youtube, and both Steven and Rian have been fans of the channel for years. 

About six months ago at a party in Venice Beach, Rian bumped into Ben, who knew of Steven’s stuff, so we set this up. 

Anyways; it’s a fun episode and a chance to hear Steven go into topics he doesn’t often delve into as much:

From futurism and Steven’s book, The Future is Faster Than You Think, to dopamine abuse, psychedelics, drugs, and the backstory Steven’s book Stealing Fire.

One of my favorite bites just in the beginning is Steven talking about Tune in, turn on, go to a bake sale - so make sure to catch that moment.

Peak Performance on The Long Haul  — Remi Adeleke | Flow Research Collective Radio

Peak Performance on The Long Haul — Remi Adeleke | Flow Research Collective Radio

November 2, 2020

Join our flagship cognitive performance training.

👉 Zero to Dangerous helps you accomplish your wildest professional goals while reclaiming time, space, and freedom in your personal life.

 

 

In today’s episode, we have someone who is the embodiment of peak performance over the long haul.

You might know our guest Remi Adeleke from the movies ‘Transformers’ or his phenomenal book “Transformed: A Navy SEAL's Unlikely Journey from the Throne of Africa, to the Streets of the Bronx, to Defying All Odds”.

What does it take for one young man to become a Navy SEAL, actor, entrepreneur, writer, and successful husband and father?

This is the story that Remi Adeleke shares on this podcast with us.

In this episode, we go deep and wide: 

We talk about the peak performance lessons Remi learned dealing with drugs in the Bronx, the most difficult aspect of hell week, and what it’s like to work in Hollywood.

Hell Week is a right of passage for all Navy SEALs. It is the hardest week of the hardest training program in the U.S. military.

Remi explains the importance of underlying motivation to make it through an environment that is cold, wet and physically and emotionally draining - where on average, 70 percent of candidates never make it past Phase One.

I think this episode is an inspiring story of someone seeking the impossible and making it happen.

This episode is part 2 of a discussion between Collective cofounder Conor Murphy, Rian Doris, and podcast host Andrew Skotzko.

The episode was originally published on the ENLIVEN podcast and that is why it is hosted by Andrew, not Rian or Steven.

In the previous episode, we have discussed the conceptual foundation for training flow states. Now, we are getting really actionable.

This episode is really a deep dive into the tools and practices that we teach.

We kick off the episode by talking about goals.

  • Why clear goals as a flow trigger are so crucial
  • How the emphasis on distraction elimination and focus for flow can be reconciled with an emphasis on group flow and collaboration
  • The difference between the flow cycle and the flow triggers

We are super excited about this week’s episode.

This episode is a discussion between our Chief Science Office here at Flow Research Collective, Conor Murphy, Rian Doris and Andrew Skotzko.

This one is a table turn—Andrew is actually interviewing myself and Conor for his podcast ENLIVEN—which you should check out by the way. 

Andrew is, as you’ll find out, an incredible interviewer. Due to his charm and interviewing, we ended up riffing for three hours straight on all things flow science and peak performance. 

It’s a great opportunity to get to know Rian and Conor a little better.

We talk about all sorts of things:

  • The programmable nature of the human condition and what knobs and levers you wanna use to program yourself for optimal functioning
  • Whether flow hacking is a probabilistic or mechanistic process
  • The role data plays in peak performance and more!

So it’s a good one. In case you are wondering… this episode is very much related to our flow training.
