Patrick J. Sweeney II, MBA: The human brain is designed primarily for survival. We run a two million year old piece of software that interferes with our happiness, success, and fulfillment in all aspects of our lives. It’s time to reprogram your brain for happiness and fulfillment.
Fear locked Patrick Sweeney in a prison of eternal suffering until he met with the ultimate terror – a diagnosis of a rare form of leukemia and a slim chance of survival. Against all odds he beat the disease thanks to talented doctors, cutting edge mental techniques learned. Battling a rare form of leukemia, overcoming cancer made him realize that he had to seize control of his life and live with gratitude and appreciation in the moment and doing what he loves most: adventuring.
Sweeney has transitioned into a full-time adventurer, becoming the first person to ever attempt cycling the seven summits. He holds a world record for being the first person to officially cycle to Everest Base Camp and the first person to cycle Mount Elbrus.
He interviewed 35 of the world’s top neuro-scientists and psychologists over 500 CEOs, professional atheltes, Navy SEALs, and others to find out how they created a life of courage. What he learned will rock your world. Patrick will explain why we get stuck in a prison of less-than-peak performance. He will then equip audience members with tangible techniques based in neuroscience that will increase their success, power, and happiness.
Information saturation, economic unrest, fear, uncertainty and doubt – are all by-products of the global disruption caused by a “novel” pandemic. Novel means new and unknown – that’s why your brain has trouble predicting the outcome, there is nothing in its database to reference. The good news is it does not have to cause anxiety or stress.
Patrick will first share how the brain works – and why running a two-million year old version of software is merciless to our well-being. Then he’ll explain how you can use hard neuroscience to reprogram your brain for success and happiness as he did in his life or death struggle from leukemia.
Patrick will share engaging and entertaining stories that range from his time in John’s Hopkins Hospital to taking the first Cloud computing company form the ashes after 9/11 and turning it into a dominant player that he sold when other companies were imploding. You’ll leave this talk feeling empowered and in control of your destiny, plus motivated to find the potential in the present!
What if you knew which rules were holding you back and how to break them?
Think of how your life would change if you had no ceiling on what you can accomplish. Following the rules works well for governments and societies but is an eventual death toll for corporations who get buried in hierarchical structure and lose their competitive advantage. The same holds true for professionals who have lost their career mojo. In this highly inspirational talk grounded in Patrick’s vast entrepreneurial success he shares the top ten rules that every business and professional should make sure they break at least once every quarter.
Patrick created a platform anyone can use to make the best decisions of their life, based on opportunity, not fear. Finding courage in those moments when we recognize we are at a crossroads is how you can take the path that leads to growth, happiness, success and fulfillment. Learn something new about the neuroscience of fear, courage, leadership and risk taking each week. Unlock the life you know you deserve with courage.”
Sweeney’s unique background as one of the world’s foremost authorities on fear and courage compliment his perspective as a four-time technology entrepreneur & CEO, an innovator with almost a dozen patents to his name and an angel investor in over 30 technology companies.
