The Way of The Spartan

Vince Lombardi Quote: “Mental toughness is Spartanism, with all its qualities of self-denial, sacrifice, dedication, fearlessness, and love.” In this episode Brett talks about the way of a Spartan warrior and how their ethos can be a lesson for today. The foundation and mentality of the Spartans is formed since birth, and there is a direct correlation between the continued training and how it can be applied to our present life. The Spartans heading into battle didn’t save anything for the way back, the faced the enemy head on without thought of retreat. They lived the ethos embodied in the charge given by their mothers and wives as they left for battle: “Come back with your shield or on it.” This, ultimately, was the way of the Spartan. With it or on it.
