Ep55 Laban Ditchburn - The Cultivation of Courage


Today on the show, Strategy + Action = The Cultivation of Courage.

Laban Ditchburn joins me on the show today and we're talking all about courage.

Laban is a phenomenal guy whom I had the good fortune to meet a few weeks ago in Drew Deraney's Profit Compassion group.

I jumped and grabbed his audiobook, Bet On You, which I highly recommend as well as his podcast, Become Your Own Superhero, where he interviews amazing people every week.

Laban has overcome so much in his life, including about every addiction you can imagine, which he talks about very openly in his book.  And he's transformed not only himself but his clients over the years.

And very specifically, this new direction that he's gone is really helping people cultivate that courage in themselves to change and to take action. I

We get into the origin of where the label of The World's Best Courage Coach came from and how it goes far beyond some vanity thing that someone might think about when they first hear it.

This idea of courage is so critical and it's not the idea of never being afraid.  It's about setting that fear aside and doing the thing anyway.  And the most amazing outcomes can happen when you have that mindset and you take those actions.

We get into really specific instances of where we can use that skill, as well as how to cultivate that skill of having courage, and how we can even use it to separate ourselves from the millions of other people who do the exact same thing that we do.

Courage is everything when it comes to developing certainty in business, but even in your personal relationships, we know that we all are drawn to those folks who have that confidence and who know what they stand for.

So I'm excited for you to meet Laban and really benefit from everything that we dig into today.

Let's jump in.

World's Best Courage Coach

A child badly affected by divorce and dysfunction, Laban sought validation and escapism in all the wrong places.

But through self-discovery, not being afraid to ask for help and a ton of hard work, he conquered the full gamut of addictions—alcohol, sex, gambling, drugs, and negative self-talk.

By understanding and then reverse-engineering the root cause of why he needed to escape, giving up his addictions was almost effortless. These days he gets his high from ultra-marathon running and searching the planet for the world’s best steak!

Today, he defines the word transformation. Reshaping his body by swapping sixty pounds of body fat with thirty pounds of muscle and bone, he discovered a simple cure for his “incurable” auto-immune disease in the process.

Now physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally in charge of his own destiny, Laban’s journey continues to inspire those ready to change their lives.

An exemplar and a revolutionary, he revels in unabashedly sharing what he’s learned: how to conquer the demons you don’t know you have, and how to be unstoppable in getting to where you want to be.

Laban’s debut and internationally acclaimed book “Bet on You” is a “can’t put down” must-read with its raw, real, hilarious, and inspiring message of hope.

Known affectionately as The World’s Best Courage Coach, Laban shares his life with his smoking hot wife, the bravest person he knows, and the future mother of their children, Anna!
