“If we don't end war, war will end us.”
H. G. Wells
Have you struggled with your mental health at some stage in the last two years? 🧐
I certainly have — and pretty much every person I speak with has, too.
Remember, when we talk about the importance of winning the day, the alternative is losing the day. That's the war we fight within … and it's a battle we must fight anew — every single day.
Our guest for this episode has spent a lifetime at war. He's an expert at pinpointing what demons we face and providing practical strategies to defeat them.
Denny Denholm is a globally recognized boxing trainer, author of Fighting Your Demons, and Royal Marine Commando. His extraordinary life led him to Iraq where he played a vital role in the rebuild, served as Head of Security for the Iraqi Government, and even had his own bodyguard school.
On his return from a life at war, Denny has directed his focus to helping people find the positives in whatever adversity they’re facing. With a distinguished and eclectic resume, he has proven to be a solution finder and compassionate leader in some of the world’s most conflicted and challenging environments.
Denny has been an A-list bodyguard, celebrity personal trainer, founder of multiple boxing gyms, and even fought against child sex slavery.
In 2022, he was recruited as Global Operations Director for BreakPoint, a UK-based disruptive consulting company run by his good friend – and star of SAS: Who Dares Wins and SAS Australia – Ollie Ollerton.
In this episode, we talk about:
- Finding calm in increasing uncertainty
- The craziest moments from his elite military career
- The legitimacy of war in today’s world, and
- How you can fight your demons once and for all.
Before we begin, the right bit of inspiration can completely change the trajectory of someone’s life, so if there’s a friend or loved one who needs to hear this episode or could use some help to Win the Day, share it with them right now.
