EP. 369: Under Pressure | Brandon Lilly

Today I’m joined by Brandon Lilly. Brandon knew all too well the pressure to perform from his days as an elite powerlifting athlete. He draws on that experience to keep hunting free of the outside noise or pressure to perform. Doing hard things and reframing success, setting reasonable goals, and humbling yourself is the pathway toward gaining the most fulfillment in hunting…or anything. Make mistakes, learn from them, and embrace the beginning stages whether you’re a new hunter…or learning a new style of hunting. Brandon has a great perspective not just on hunting but on life, and our conversation is a great way to kick off the new year. I hop you all dig the sesh as much as I did – thanks for listening.
