This time I chat with Eric Davis, a former Navy SEAL and an author of “Raising Men – What we learned in SEAL training and taught to our sons”.

The guest – Eric Davis
Eric Davis is a dad of 4, ranging from 9 to 23 years old.
As a former Navy SEAL sniper instructor he has taken the proven performance principles leveraged by elite units and repurposed them for entrepreneurs, business leaders and also for parents. He’s a founder of ericdavis215.com – an online resource focused on delivering the situational awareness, transparency and knowledge people require to live a good life and lead others to do the same.
In addition to lessons from Navy SEAL program, we’re talking about:
- How no one’s born a dad. Importance of personal development, being in training and becoming a better self so we could lead other do the same.
- How most of us know exactly what to do, but get stuck on the “how to”.
- Instead of chasing a life balance, why we should just identify what matters most, assess and prioritize and put these in our daily schedules.
- Common flaws in today’s idea of masculinity.
One of his quotes that stuck with me from today’s show when we talked about men not being willing to ask for help:
“A man is somebody who recognizes his responsibilities and does everything it takes to care for them.”
What I love most about today’s episode is that Eric takes his job as a parent as seriously as he took his job as a Navy SEAL. It’s something we should all do – be more conscious in our decisions and actions as men and as dads.
