Dave Hollis On Why We Are Built Through Courage

Dave Hollis is a New York Time best-selling author, the host of the Rise Together Podcast, a keynote speaker, as well as a life and business coach, plus the CEO of the Hollis Company.

Dave joins Nick to talk about his new book ‘Built Through Courage: Face Your Fears To Live The Life That You Were Meant For’, as well as how to make failure work for you, how to discover your core values, how to stop chasing someone else’s dream, and how to develop next-level resilience.


  • The journey of life is one that forces us to recognise when we must make the hard choices between the comfortable places that keep us from achieving, and the higher levels that make us stronger.
  • For many, events in our early life have led to an inner programming that determines our outlook on how life should be. Those definitions are never necessarily connected to our personal values.
  • Milestones without inner fulfilment are not worth as much as the achievements that light our inner fire. When we identify our purpose and align each goal with that purpose, then we attain inner fulfilment.
  • In order to determine what “next” looks like, it can be powerful to travel back to the you that you inhabited before you became the person you are today. Reconnecting with an earlier version of yourself can provide insight into where the next step lies.


‘If you don’t have fulfilment on the inside, if you’re not clear on your purpose, the other achievements that you create don’t really matter’

‘In my journey of becoming, I have recognised that there were inflection points where courage was necessary’

‘Courage often ends up being the ingredient that’s necessary to challenge the programming we’re raised with’

‘For me there was a wholesale reset on what “next” looked like’
