Every month at the HERO Project, we drill incremental habit change and gather accountability groups to help you connect with others and become the best version of yourself!

August was the father/son pushup challenge.

Throughout September, we did cold showers EVERY SINGLE day.

This month, we’ll be joining comedians Joe Rogan, Bert Kreischer, Tom Segura, Ari Shaffir, and friends for a no-booze October, plus fitness challenge.

Sober OctoBert Announcement from the JRE

The rules for the #SoberOctoBert Challenge as described by its participants:

I personally will be taking one single 24-hour pass on my wedding day on the 8th, but with that exception, I’m committing to 30 days alcohol-free, plus 15 days of fitness in October.

So that’s a workout every other day basically.

I’ll be hitting the gym as much as possible, but also using at-home routines as my backup plan. You can do your cardio workout, you can do HIIT routine, you can do yoga classes, or whatever you want, but if you want to join us for the 30-day HERO Challenge and have some folks alongside to cheer you on all month, we will host the group inside my private group The HERO Project.

After our pushup challenge, my fellow father Brandyn Shoemaker had this to say: “What are you struggling with right now? What do you want to teach your kids? Whatever it is, do it. Do it everyday and soon enough it will change from a struggle to a habit.”

It’s completely free to join on Facebook. Join me and a group of fellow heroes all through October for a Sober October and 30-day fitness challenge.

If you post your workout on Instagram or FB, use the hashtags #SoberOctobert and #30DayHERO

I’ve been enjoying Joe Rogan’s fascinating interviews for quite a while now. It might sound strange, if you remember Rogan from television shows like News Radio or Fear Factor, but the stand up comedian turned actor turned UFC commentator has come a long way since those days, and some might call him the “gateway drug” to a wide world of insightful thinkers — from fellow comedians and MMA fighters to fascinating authors, academics, leading scientists and medical doctors, and a wide array of researchers expanding our understanding of the world.

His Joe Rogan Experience podcast is jam-packed with inspiring and enlightening interviews, coming up on 1000 episodes very soon.

Today is Joe’s birthday, so I made a little tribute for his 50th lap around the sun.

Just a work passion to say I’m grateful for his incredible podcast, his intellect, for having his voice in my ears these last several years exposing me to hundreds of new people, new ideas, and helping give me a bigger map of the world. Thank you Joe Rogan and happy 50th you legend!

We polled the 1000+ members of our Joe Rogan Experience Fan Club on Facebook to decide who to include, and I casted Jordan Peterson in a central role since Joe recently declared Peterson his favorite interview guest of all time on the JRE podcast #958!

“We define ourselves far too often by our past failures. That’s not you. You are this person right now. You’re the person who has learned from those failures. Build confidence and momentum with each good decision you make from here on out and choose to be inspired.”

In case you missed it, recently on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast (JRE) #739, Christopher Ryan, Joe Rogan, and Duncan Trussell spoke at length about the new, growing class of Western technical professionals quitting their 9-to-5 jobs, some of them RVing across the USA, or even becoming permanent travelers and “digital nomads” — pioneering a new way of living beyond borders.

I still highly recommend you pay your taxes, but this is an interesting conversation nonetheless!

Dr. Chris Ryan is a psychologist, speaker, and author of New York Times best seller Sex at Dawn: How We Mate, Why We Stray, and What It Means for Modern Relationships, and also host of his own podcast “Tangentially Speaking”. Duncan Trussell is a stand-up comedian, and host of his own podcast “The Duncan Trussell Family Hour“.

I’ve been enjoying Joe Rogan’s musings for quite a while now. It might sound strange, if you remember Rogan from News Radio or Fear Factor, but the stand up comedian turned actor turned UFC commentator has made a lot of personal transformation since those days, and has quite a lot of interesting perspective to share on life.

His Joe Rogan Experience podcast is jam-packed with fascinating interviews and inspiration. Here are a couple great episodes with Tim Ferriss, Anthony Bourdain, Graham Hancock, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson… if you listen for long, you’ll find the JRE is full of gems. One of my favorite sayings Joe has coined is about being the hero of your own movie, or your own epic story. That resonates perfectly with what we’re all about here at Thrilling Heroics.

If your life was a movie and it started now, what would the hero of your life’s movie do right now?
