It may sound odd that a motivational guy would talk about negative things, but for me, that’s the sole purpose for self-improvement. In fact, my whole mission and philosophy can be reduced to a few phrases, and one of them is…

“Your best defense is a stronger you.”

Everyone’s problems and situations are different, and they all require a different approach to resolve them, but I find that knowing what to do when you’re in a tight spot is not the issue.

The issue is actually that people are weak, and the reason they’re weak is that we’ve all grown up in a culture of luxury and ease. It’s true. You may not believe that, but why else would people settle in life? It’s because it’s easy to settle.

And why is it easy to settle? It’s because you can still “get by” with smartphones, highways, televisions, air travel, electricity, fast food, sports, beer, running water, and all the other luxuries that mankind NEVER had for the thousands of years before us!

Therefore, to get strong enough to be prepared for what life is going to throw your way, you have to look beyond the luxury and ease of life and find your reason to work harder. In other words, you have to be serious in a world that plays too much.

That’s what I’m covering in my latest video series, It’s Time to Get Serious About Your Life, from my Life Domination Online Coaching Group. Watch Episode 1 now.

My mission is to help equip people to maximize their resources for a purpose greater than themselves. That's what my own mentors and teachers have done for me, and I'm paying it forward. Life can be merciless, and the world can be a messed up place, so what's needed is a stronger people that can both endure and overcome in life. My motto is, "In whatever you do, don't suck! Metal up!"
