Julius Caesar | The Roman Republic

I don’t know about you but when I think of the Roman Empire the first soldier that comes to mind is Gaius Julius Caesar. I’ve probably seen every movie out there that has Roman soldiers in it. Ben Hur was the first movie I saw at 8. Another favorite is Gladiator. There was the TV […]

Toyotomi Hideyoshi | 15th Century Warlord Unites The Land of the Rising Sun

I love stories of Warlords, conquerors and explorers from the Medieval Ages and earlier. I can read the same story every year or so and still come away like I just read it for the first time. Since I spent a part of my childhood in Japan I got to hear some cool stories of […]

Exercise your fear. That’s what Fearless Felix Baumgartner did. You know,  the guy who jumped from the stratosphere this past weekend? The first and only person to break Mach 1 with their body?

How to Overcome Fear Joseph Kittinger – Lesson 1 – Have A Well-Thought Plan

There’s something about guys we think are fearless that we really respect and admire. Men who break the sound barrier. Men who reach the moon-knowing fully that it’d never been done before and they could die alone in space. We want to be like men we’ve read about in history that put it all on […]

George Washington | Leading From The Front

“Few men have virtue to withstand the highest bidder.” ~George Washington George Washington was born a man just like you and I. Don’t believe me? He proposed to the same woman twice and was turned down both times. I bet you didn’t expect that from one of our Founding Fathers and 1st President. That’s probably more […]
