Ted Ryce: How To Deal With Stress & Overwhelm
“Legendary Life sounds better than Legacy Life, but “legacy” is the word that I think about when it comes down to creating an ideal life. What do you want to be remembered for?

I struggle sometimes, but I know I'm on the right path to living a Legacy Life.” – Ted Ryce

Power Quotes From The Show
“My injury lead me to realize that I needed a huge change. I've been in this same environment for so long that I'm actually becoming more and more negative about where I live. I don't feel like I'm in the right place anymore and so I'm ready for a new challenge.” – Ted Ryce
“Sometimes our greatest fear can be our greatest teacher. In addition, it's only natural that we allow change to happen.” – Josh Trent
“When we're in our 40s, 50s, and beyond, HIIT training isn't the answer to curing stress nor is steady state cardio. If we're talking about just being happier and healthier, it's really about getting that movement throughout the day. It doesn't put a lot of stress on our joints like running or burpees and you really notice the difference.” – Ted Ryce
“The feeling of being alive is more important than just living. With “living,” you're going to be safe and stay alive, but to really feel alive, that's going to produce anxiety, stress, and moments of overwhelm. I'd matter much live that way where there's uncertainty and I'm at least moving in the direction I want to go.” – Jost Trent
“Despite our beliefs, we're not in control. We're not these autonomous, free-willed human beings that we'd like to believe we are. There's constant pressure from our wiring to react in certain ways to different scenarios. We're fighting with ourselves all the time.” – Ted Ryce
