Every day we interact with other people’s masked versions of themselves. Most people have a select few that they allow to unmask them. Often, our biggest struggle isn’t understanding others but it’s trying to figure out who we indeed are. When we pull off our masks and do some soul searching, it’s scary and frightening, but it can also be grateful and rewarding.
This week we bring you an Airman Leadership School Instructor at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico. Briton Lee Hurdle! Briton was going through a divorce at an all-time low in his life. He started to display suicidal tendencies, but he bounced back and went on to become an incredible instructor. Briton talks to us about the evolving adversity we face and how to overcome it. He teaches us about his ACT acronym along with his Three Stones analogy.
Then we bring you the host of the Shadows Podcast, Tripp Bodenheimer. Tripp is an Instructor at the Enlisted Professional Military Education Instructor Course at Maxwell-Gunter Annex, Alabama. Tripp takes us through his journey from being diagnosed with performance anxiety and having a tremendous fear of public speaking to conquering that fear. He now seeks opportunities to get behind a microphone or stand in front of an audience. He shares his pointers to help you transition from the 80% that fear public speaking to the 20% who’ve overcome it.
Trigger Warning: This episodes contains potential trigger warnings such as suicide awareness, divorce, and anxiety.
