Learn the Mindset


Becoming less of a target


Activating your inner Warrior Mode


Learning to Snap-Prioritize

Picture this:

You’re walking to meet a friend. You’re running late, so you pull out your phone to let her know. While you’re texting her, you pull up the map just to double-check where you’re going.

You hear footsteps behind you. At first you think nothing of it, but there’s something weird about the sound you just can’t place.

Then someone steps into your path and you stumble. Looking up, you start to apologize to the man you walked into when you realize he’s staring at you, no trace of surprise on his face.

You take a step back, confused.

That’s when you notice there’s a knife in his hand.


Stay quiet and this will go better for you”, he says.


How do you react?


Does your mind go blank with panic?

Or do you move seamlessly into that little place inside of you that’s always clear, calm, and ready to respond?


It’s hard to know exactly how you’ll react until you’re already in that critical moment. But by then it may be too late, and the wrong choice can leave you hurt or worse.

This is why training yourself to think quickly and calmly in a crisis is crucial.

While it takes practice, learning the right mindset can allow anyone—regardless of age or size—to be prepared for random attacks. You can learn it yourself, teach it to your friends, and use it to help your family become street smart. And that means less worry and more safety all around.

There are three main practices I teach to help achieve the mindset you need. These easy techniques help you instantly snap into your highest states of self awareness, mental alertness, situational clarity, and fearlessness.

This is where most people start their journey to confidence. In Right Foot First, you’ll learn how to mentally prepare yourself to handle dangerous encounters by embracing a mindset I call the ‘Warrior Self.’
