04 Feb Episode 52: SpartanX Special Episode – What Is Your Eulogy?

In this episode, Ben Greenfield introduces you to SpartanX and asks you a very important question: what is your eulogy?

Imagine you have lived a long, full life and died of old age in the future. Write your own eulogy that will be shared with friends and family at your funeral.

Imagine you are on your deathbed today. Think about how others would remember you if today were your last day on Earth.

Imagine your 80th Birthday party. Who is there celebrating with you? What kinds of stories are being told about you? What are you the most proud of at this momentous occasion?

    Wow! Most powerful podcast to date .
    Thanks for shifting our focus to ultimately what is more important.
    Reaching deep emotionally as you have demonstrated can be tougher and more self rewarding then the toughest workout.
    That’s for exemplifying what a great Warrior/human being Ben Greenfield is…

    I’ll second the great episode comment. Please keep mixing these in with the more traditional episodes.

    Caught my attention when I usually zone out in my commute and really made me think about whether the actions I’m taking today will get me to where I want to be when I’m eighty and am looking back.

    Thank you.

    Creepy, but i get it.

    There is something more to life than death and taxes. Often in the OCR world we get so caught up in the non stop push, the next mountain, the next race, I’m not a father yet, but i just got married and i often think of the stories i will tell my grandchildren about what i did while racing in this season of my life. personally i am a shoot from the hip guy and i make it up as i go, What i do know is i will be proud of what i did. Its my story and settling with mediocre is the worst way to live.

    I respect you guys for doing something out of the norm with this podcast.
    keep up the awesome work.

    I completely appreciate this candid look at life and what you’re learning in Spartan X. Yeah, it’s okay to get a bit woo-woo from time to time. “Woo-woo” is simply a word that means “introspective,” in my estimation, and it’s a heck of a lot more mature than just mentally bashing your head against the world.

    Doing this sort of life review is such a valuable tool, and I totally appreciate your vulnerability and maturity in sharing this stuff openly and publicly. Thank you.
