    Damn Jon,

    this post really hit me, especially the Fight Club scene.

    I remember watching this movie, seeing this scene and it having such an emotional impact that I went all out and did everything to pursue my goals.

    It has been a while since then but I just had to remember this scene.

    Thank you Jon! I have been slacking a while now but this finally gave me a wake up kick again.

    Your posts work like magic. I will inspire and impact people like you do with me someday!

    Thank you, Jon.
    When life hit me hard a couple of years ago, by taking, to different realms, the only man I ever loved, I thought crazy will be my new state of mind. Is hard to loose so much, when young.
    But I started listening to podcasts and marinate, as you said, my mind, in other people life experiences, struggles and survivals.
    And I survived “crazy”.
    So thank you, because I survived by learning from people like you.

    Ron from Kenya here. Very inspiring, but also challenging. It’s true I need to ask myself if I am ready to pay the price to reach somewhere and if yes, then, put a gunto my head to do it. Thanks again and God bless you!

    Good Afternoon Jon,
    I listened to your interview on the James Altucher Podcast and I was blown away with your story! It was a very powerful, inspiring, motivating interview. I’ve been currently stuck in life for a while and I so desperately needed to read this powerful post along with hear your interview! I currently work full time and do real estate investing. I would like to start doing e commerce as well. Do you know of any solid digital marketing groups I can join to learn the end and outs of digital marketing for e commerce businesses? I’ve been doing some research online but it seems to be a lot and I didnt want to join the wrong one and get ripped off. Keep using your gifts and may your future continue to brighten the world : )
    Kind Regards,
    Quinn Thomas

    Hi Jon,

    I was very impressed with your openness and directness when telling about your life story and philosophy on James Altuchers excellent podcast. I absolutely share the idea that spending time with- and listening to/seeing/reading about people that have a big creative and inspiring impact on the world around them, is a huge motivational factor for pushing yourself forward.

    I was wondering if you would share a list of some of the books and podcasts you find interesting and inspiring in that regard? You may have blogged about this before, but as I am new to your blog, I unfortunately wouldn’t know.

    On the top of my head, here is a list of some of the people I like to listen to/read about: James Altucher, Tim Ferris, Dan Ariely, Tony Robbins, Jordan Harbinger and Biographies of famous people.

    Thanks for sharing your story, very inspiring!

    I’m forever grateful to you for sharing your story on James Altucher. Thank you for saying ‘yes’ to him for the interview. Had it not been for that Podcast, I wouldn’t have come across you and the light you are for so many people. Thank you for showing up for us. You touched so many people’s lives. You are a soul that we need everyday…..

    I’m a rude wheelchair dude, Jon. I can understand your daily stuff much more than more of your readers.
    There are 3 main reasons of your success.
    1. Your mother who didn’t give you to die and who cared/cares of you.
    2. You had been born in the great country; with the power economy, the good bank system and Infrastructure.
    3. You wanted/want to work/worked and not watching stupid TV.
    3. a. you reached the right person/s who could give you the hand.
    b. you had some money to start your business, because if even you started your business from ‘zero’ , you something to eat. No one can build a business in a week.

    Have I missed something? It would be great to get your personal comment on my post.

      Yes, those are three of the biggest factors. I also had great teachers and mentors.
