About the show

A growth mindset is the belief that you can do anything if you work for it.

Your host Sam Harris finds remarkable individuals doing extraordinary things and breaks the processes down to show how anyone can achieve anything.

Sam has launched several businesses, travelled the world, and nearly died a few times, all in the spirit of curiosity and adventure. Some highlights include touring North Korea to hitch-hiking across Kazakhstan. He brings his insatiable appetite for learning to the podcast and challenges his guests with unusual questions to bring listeners unique insights.
