I wish I had all the information that’s out there today back when I was a kid. It would have saved me a ton of time and headaches. For that reason, it’s my way of giving back to society. I enjoy the fact that people are reading my work and taking something from it to create a better, healthier life for themselves – even if they didn’t see my name in the article. The most humbling thing I’ve experienced through it all is the number of emails I get every week from people who read my work and applied it and are saying thanks for changing their life. Many of them had the desire to live a healthier life, but never knew how to put one foot in front of the other and make it a reality.
And due to the fact that I’m perfectly fine staying home and working 24/7, it’s a great way for me to get my thoughts out there and add value to people’s lives. Sure, I have a podcast and I can speak in front of thousands of people without a problem, I just choose to stay below the radar. You don’t see me at conventions. You don’t see me at expos. And when I do travel to them for meetings, outside of the meeting itself, I’m locked up in my hotel room working. I don’t party. I don’t go out and socialize a whole heck of a lot unless my wife drags me out of the house. Honestly, I just love what I do too damn much to want to waste my time doing something that I feel has no benefit to me in the long run.
How many lives can you change before you die?
I’m not the type of person to go online and show off fancy and flashy things. Personally, I could care less. In my opinion, the people who go online and show off their expensive watches in every post, or their $100+ thousand-dollar cars bring no true value to anyone. It’s not a dick-measuring contest. To me, those people are worthless. What can you learn from them? They aren’t posting anything worth reading, and most of the time it’s just an image of their Rolex or Lambo. There’s nothing about what they do for a living. How they make money. How you too can make money. Advice. Insight. Nothing. So, other than a fancy lavish image, there’s no takeaway.
