Everybody who’s ever seen a movie is familiar with the Hero’s Journey. But you don’t actually have to watch any movies to see the Hero’s Journey in action…because it’s literally programmed into your DNA.

In this episode of Business Outlaws, special guest James Bonnet joins BigMike and Chris “Bulldog” Collins to talk about the most fundamental part of self-transformation: understanding the archetype of the Hero’s Journey and rising above the veil between your lower self and your higher self. Only once you’ve ascended to this higher plane can you see yourself — and all the tricks assholes use to try to manipulate you — objectively. Every human mind is wired to respond to it, but only a small percentage of us actually understand and use it. Here’s your opportunity to join that small percentage.

“The Hero’s Journey is the single most powerful blueprint that I could have possibly learned in life,” BigMike says as he discusses how his experience at one of Bonnet’s seminars expanded his personal toolbox and made him better equipped to face challenges in business and in his personal life. “Now, after you face your darkest hour, you bring fire back to the village,” he explains. Don’t miss this deeply philosophical episode that will permanently alter how you deal with the challenges you face.
