Episode 325: John “Gucci” Foley – Former Lead Solo Pilot Of The Blue Angels On The Glad To Be Here Mindset

By in Podcast

We are super pumped to have John Foley, call sign Gucci, on the show with us today. John is a former lead solo pilot of the Blue Angels, a Sloan Fellow at Stanford School of Business, a top-rated Keynote Speaker to over 1500 organizations worldwide, a bestselling author, and perhaps our favorite title for this guy, gratitude guru.

As a Blue Angel pilot, John represented 1/10 of 1/10 of 1% of all pilots worldwide. Flying at speeds of more the 500 miles per hour and in formations as close as 18 inches apart, John is no stranger to excellence, focus, and precision that rides the absolute razor’s edge of life and death.

He has learned to make his mind one-pointed and discovered that being grateful is the base of living in a high-performance zone.

We are tremendously thankful for this conversation and loved the direction it took, we hope you feel the same.
