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.
In this episode, you will learn about:
Remi Adeleke was born in western Africa, but following his father's death, he and his mother and brother relocated permanently to the Bronx in New York City.
