I first met today's podcast guest at a private conference where he was teaching long range rifle shooting combined with meditation? Sound a bit weird and intriguing? I thought so.

It turns out that my guest on today's show - Dr. Doug Brackman - has studied and worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs, pro-athletes, inventors, adventurers, and Navy SEALs and found that certain people are born with a drive often seen in these types of people. It's in their DNA - research has shown that certain genes can manifest resilient and highly focused people who can also be impulsive and easily distracted. While these traits enabled our ancient ancestors to survive, if you have these traits today, it can create havoc in your life. You may be diagnosed with ADHD, ADD, or OCD.

But what the world tells you is a disability or disorder may actually be your greatest gift. Using his experience teaching the highly driven how to master their gift, Doug provides the insight and tools you need to master yours. He teaches you how to:

- Stop self-sabotage forever - End shame and doubt - Find your wolf pack - Use meditation to put yourself on the right path

I just finished his new book Driven: Understanding and Harnessing the Genetic Gifts Shared by Entrepreneurs, Navy SEALs, Pro Athletes (& Maybe You) and was absolutely glued to the pages, so I just had to have Doug on the show.

After achieving a dual PhD in 2002, Dr. Doug struck out to research the components of powerful thought and action, culminating in a very successful practice of helping driven “hunters” focus their gifts on a daily basis. Dr. Doug has used and integrated approach of meditation, bio-hacking, and applied real world counseling to help thousands of people. He has been naturally drawn to the driven (often ADD/ADHD spectrum) business owner/entrepreneur, and for the last 10 years has worked exclusively with these amazing clients. Dr. Doug is a twenty plus year meditation practitioner and continuous student of the rapid advances in science explaining the benefits of specific types of meditation. He describes himself as a functional MRI geek and student of all spiritual practices and religions.
