Overcoming Obstacles With Dean Stott - British Special Forces Operator & World Record Holder

In this episode I talk to Dean Stott.

Dean is a former British Special Forces Soldier who left the military after suffering a severe knee injury in a parachuting accident in 2011. He then established a distinguished career in the private security sector; he was renowned for his willing to take on any job, no matter how dangerous.

However, in 2016 Dean was ready for a new project and wanted to use this to help others. He began training to cycle the longest motorable road in the world – The Pan American Highway. Dean completed the 14,000 mile route from Argentina to Alaska in May 2018, gaining two world records and raising an incredible amount of money for charity in the process.

In this episode I explore with Dean three main topics, namely,

  •  Importance of planning and preparing
  • Being reactive to the situation
  • Self belief
