Mi365 Daily Intentions

Feb 6, 2018

Join us for our special edition podcast! Find out how a 24 year old digital marketer overcame mental anguish and physical exhaustion to WIN Channel 4’s SAS Who Dares Wins.
Jonathan Davis, 24, from Brighton, spent two weeks with ex-special forces soldiers as they put him and other recruits through a gruelling SAS selection process in the parched Moroccan Atlas Mountains.
In his own words:
“I managed not to crack when we were under extreme mental distress – we were kidnapped in the middle of the night by men with guns, blindfolded, thrown in a small mud hut, with nothing to eat for 20 hours, at 40 degrees heat with one sip of water an hour, all the time listening for hours to terrible recordings of crying and people in pain.
“I managed to flick a switch in my brain where I did not think about any part of my personal life, my family, my girlfriend, my life and just endure it. That’s how I got through it.”
Pete discusses how Jonathan developed the mental resilience to not give up and crucially, apply these skills to everyday life. Find Jonny on instagram at @itsjonnydavis and visit his website at
