Does Quitting Make You Quit Again? A Neurosurgeon Explains

Presented by Spartan Training®

As a brain surgeon, author, and wrestling coach, Dr. Mark McLaughlin understands  how obstacles affect your body and mind. On this episode of the Spartan Up! podcast, with Spartan founder and CEO Joe De Sena, he explains the science behind quitting and its effects on the brain, and why it’s critical to overcome obstacles.

We get good at what we do, and that includes quitting. Through his life experiences, Dr. McLaughlin has learned to metabolize fear using what he calls “cognitive dominance.” It allows you to make quick decisions in stressful situations, something we all need! Don’t be limited by fear, and always keep challenging your brain!
