ResistingBeta: The Men's Health Podcast

Sep 7 2023 • 57 mins

In this episode of Resisting Beta, host Andrew Bontz interviews Chase Chewning, a soldier turned health coach turned podcast host. Chase shares his unique perspective on purpose, endurance through adversity, and the evolution of identity.

He opens up about the physical and mental trauma he endured in the military, and how he continually pushed forward in spite of major setbacks.

Chase also discusses the importance of focusing on your core passions, not mimicking others, and surrounding yourself with a community of accountability. Tune in to hear Chase's inspiring story of resilience and deep insights into what it means to be a man.

Key Topics Covered:

  • Chase's purpose - to endure and be an example for others of overcoming adversity. He feels called to carry burdens and show others that more is possible through hardship.

  • The power of choice - we always have a choice in how we respond to circumstances. Choosing to move forward vs. settle.

  • The power of community - having at least one other person to hold you accountable and overlap goals with is crucial.

  • Shifting identity - letting go of labels and evolving as your purpose changes. Not settling into one static identity.

  • Having the courage to focus on what lights you up - Chase left his coaching business to focus solely on podcasting.

  • Taking tactical pauses - as men, we often react, but pausing to respond appropriately is key.

  • Don't mimic others' lives - do what works for YOU and your purpose. Test and stop mimicking.

Action Steps:

  • Test and stop mimicking others. Don't just replicate what other men are doing and expect the same results.

  • Keep mimicking behaviors/habits this week, but understand why you are doing them. Re-evaluate if they serve you.

  • Come back to your baseline. Take time to listen to your body and see what feels right for you.

  • See what works for you and what doesn't. Don't expect the same results as others.

  • Find the tactics that fit you best by testing different ones. Don't blindly copy someone else's approach.

Quotes:

  • "What got me here won't keep me here."

  • "Just because I have a system for this process...does not mean that it has served that system of process a year ago, five years ago."

  • "Take the next seven days, take whatever thing you want to take...and understand why you're doing it."

  • "I would even say that you didn't fail. You maybe failed in accomplishing his goal, the goal of this other person's program. But what you did do is you realize what matters to you."
