Q. Who is your greatest role model? A. Deceased: Steve Jobs. Alive: Mark Zuckerberg
Q. How do you define success? A. Cheerfulness. I used to be successful “in the traditional sense” – but I wasn’t happy. I’ve met too many depressed millionaires in my life, and I did not want to head down that path. I woke up one day and realized that if I lived life in a happy / cheerful / joyful state – then everything else would fall into place. So far – I’m right!
Q. What is the secret to your success? A. I keep pushing forward every day. 99% of the time I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing because it’s something new that I’ve never experienced. The secret is to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Growth happens outside our comfort zone. When I’m growing, I’m happy – and when I’m happy, I’m successful.
Q. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? A. On my own island where I make the rules and don’t have to listen to politicians pretend like they have my best interest at heart.
Q. What’s your kryptonite? A. Negative people who blame their circumstances on everything else, and don’t take accountability for their actions. Sometimes I have to be around people like this, and that energy rubs off on me.
Solution? Always look to surround yourself with the right people! The right person can change your life instantaneously. The wrong people will hold you back from attaining everything you’ve ever wanted.
Q. What historical figure do you most relate to? A. Abraham Lincoln and Nikola Tesla
Q. What is your biggest regret? A. Not stepping up to the entrepreneurial plate in middle school and high school. That earlier start would have helped me further build my foundation.
Q. What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment? A. Going from a kid with a stutter – to a man who has taught world leaders how to speak, present, and train.
Q. What is your best advise to people whom look up to you and your success? A. If you want to be successful – you have to be willing to take the next step forward RIGHT NOW. You can’t do anything about yesterday, and you can’t do anything about tomorrow. But, you’re in complete control over the present moment. Forget about all the little things you THINK are holding you back, and step into the best version of yourself.
