Dr. Jerry Lynch (author of The Competitive Buddha) talks philosophy and sports on this latest Bring It In podcast.

Episode Description

How do you get credit for 73 Conference Championships, 54 Final Fours, and 39 National Championships across every major athletic sport in America? Dr. Jerry Lynch, ex-Navy Officer, sports psychologist, author, speaker, athlete, and coach, has advised, guided, and coached some of the most successful, winningest, and dominant athletes in the world.

With a unique perspective that combines eastern philosophy, Native American Tradition, and Western Philosophy, Dr. J has written over thirteen books and given countless lectures to help people achieve their prime mentality to win.

When I sat down with Dr. J, he dove into his latest book, “The Competitive Buddha,” a book about mastery, leadership, and spirituality, drawing from the ancient teachings of The Buddha and showing how many of those philosophies apply to winning.

This is definitely one of the most unique podcasts I’ve ever had so…let’s bring it in!
