Really?! Think about it... I’m asking because I’m here to inspire you to be self-aware… to have some introspection, to be present, to get a clear perspective and not just be on auto pilot. Is this making sense? I’m here to inspire you and challenge you, because that’s where the growth happens. That’s where progress lives. Yes? Now, let me ask you, how many people do you know that talk a big game? Think about it. If you’re anything like me you probably see and hear this all the time, don’t you? Because we live in a world of mediocracy, our system is built on rewarding mediocrity. I see people all the time that say, “Satori, I want to stop overdrinking”, “I want to lose weight”, “I want to make more money”, “I want a great marriage”, “I want a great business”, but they’re stuck, talking about it, they’re stuck, complaining about it, they’re stuck pretending. They don’t have the drive and hunger to follow through. Do you know what I mean? So I know by you listening right now, I know you’re committed to a Badass Life, you want more out of life, you want to take your life, your business, your health, your income, your marriage to the next level, right? You’re not settling. I mean come on, you wouldn’t be listening to a podcast about being a badass, otherwise, right? You’re investing your time, energy and emotions to be here with me right now. You’re choosing to be here right now, right? You could be doing ANYTHING else, but you’re not. You’re listening to me right now. I don’t take that lightly, and neither should you. I appreciate you investing in you. So let’s take being present to a new level, shall we? Is that cool with you? We all know we need make decisions to invest in ourselves if we want to make real progress, make real transformation and growth happen, isn’t that true? So before we get deeper into today’s episode I just want to start by acknowledging you and say, I am really grateful that you’re investing in you right now. I’m grateful to be able to share this moment with you. So acknowledge yourself for being here… come on you can do it! It’s not corny or silly. If you haven’t listened to other Halfass to Badass epidodes go back to episode one and you will know why I’m doing this… Today, I’m going to reveal a secret, but before I do… Let me ask you a question… and I want you answer as honest as you can. Do you want more...? Really! I know you want more! You want more out of life. More out your business. More out of YOU?! More energy. More Productivity. Better focus? How about your relationships? You want to STOP fighting (arguing, being disappointed, getting upset) and having conflicts with the people you actually love? You want to be happier, more fulfilled? Of course you do or wouldn’t be listening, right? It’s healthy. It’s how you were born. It’s your design. To grow. To evolve. People tell me all the time, “Satori, I want to make more money”. Or they say, “I’ve made the money, I have all the toys, why am I still miserable?” “I want to find true love.” “I keep pushing and pushing and no matter how much I succeed, no matter how much I accomplish, I feel like something is missing. I am tired man of wanting life to be a certain way and not getting there.” “I want to stop fighting with my husband.” “I want to stop arguing with my wife.” “No matter what I do, it’s never enough. I can never make her happy. I can never satisfy him.” “I don’t want to be angry and frustrated with my kids all the time”. But you know what? It’s like I said, most people just talk about it. And I have discovered something REALLY important: Wanting it just isn’t enough. The fantasy is NOT enough! If it was, we’d all be millionaires, billionaires... We’d have perfect bodies, be superass happy Have amazing kids that always do what we want and the love of our lives right next to us. The truth is…. Most people are NOT. After working with hundreds of thousands of people from more than 80 countries, to be specific I can tell you with absolute certainty that… Most of us are unhappy (dissatisfied, unfulfilled) Stressed Depressed Angry all the time Disappointed Addicted to food Alcohol, sex smoking, coffee Maybe other less obvious drugs… Anger, control, power With NO IDEA, how to escape the pain. WHY are most of us not where we want to be? And is not the first time we ask that question And it’s not the first time we look for a solution either To feel happier, right? To be more successful. Because we all want to feel more... More fulfilled and find a deeper meaning in life. And I’m NOT talking about the fleeting moment that feels like happiness, But isn’t. The one that comes from sex, alcohol, shopping or other forms of entertainment or addictions. I am talking about what creates that SUSTAINABLE long lasting genuine fulfillment that just keeps growing and expanding – EVEN during tough times. When is it your time? I believe this is your time right now. So what’s missing? And when I ask that question a lot of people get bothered because they are confronted with a primary fear that life will never be what they’d hoped for. And we’re constantly comparing our lives for significance. Think about it… We work so hard to show others how perfect our lives are—how special we are. It’s so conditioned into our culture. It drives me nuts, how insane it has become on social media. Who has the biggest mansion, the most expensive car, the hottest wife, the perfect kids. “Oh you have that… just look what I have. I have a private jet and look how fun my life is”. Nothing wrong with having these things. It all depends which lens you put it under. People get so sucked into it. Marketers use it all the time to position themselves. Magazines, commercials and people all around us love to show off this perfect family or lifestyle – that we have our shit together. But most live in an illusion, trying to paint a fantasy that is not real—for one primary reason—so that others will like us, appreciate us, respect us and think we are great and worthwhile. We work so hard hiding who we really are, how we really feel and defend that image until the end. We want to live the life we see in magazines, on Instagram, on social media, period. And when it doesn’t happen we get extremely disappointed. It’s a trap! I’m going to tell you something, most people I work with are not like everyone else. They’re searching, they have this gnawing feeling that there’s something else, that there’s more. They have this entrepreneurial mind, but they don’t know how to break out of the mold, to remove the facade. There is a difference between how they appear and how they live. Who they are. Do you know what I mean? You know what I’m talking about? They want to break free from the chains of their past. They’re tired of wanting their life to be a certain way, but not feeling they are getting there. But they know there’s a next level for them. If you’re like many people I know you can relate, can’t you? I wasn’t always the most sought after and highest paid turnaround guy, mentor, consultant and advisor; helping people to go from a Halfass Relationship to a Badass Relationship, or from a Halfass business to a Badass business, simply put, I wasn’t always the guy taking you from a Halfass mindset to a Badass mindset. I’ve been blessed and had the opportunity to help over a million people from 80 countries around the world with my message and at this point in my life I would have to be an idiot if I didn’t see patterns in human behavior and the pain so many people live with, but pretend doesn’t exist. As many of you may know I have been fortunate to have Tony Robbins hire me to increase revenue and helped build his brand, and I helped spread his message around the world for many years. I’ve also worked with many other experts and thought leaders behind the scenes, who I thought had extraordinary principles. I even moved my whole family to Georgia one time, so I could drink the knowledge straight from the well. That’s my level of commitment and dedication to you and all the people I have the opportunity to serve at a deeper level. Unfortunately, a few months into it was revealed to me he was not living the way he was teaching and he wanted to control everything I did. Not very productive, and also not possible when one of my highest values is freedom. So I packed up the car and a U-Haul and drove my family across country and to California, which has been my primary home for the last 25 years. And it taught me an important lesson, even the gurus we put on pedestals have flaws. So don’t put them on pedestals. But it didn’t start this way… I remember sitting in my one-bedroom apartment, in Stockholm many years ago. I had just come out being locked up in a mental hospital for two months because my friends and family thought something didn’t seem right. I was talking about things they’d never heard me talk about. And of course, when you get locked up, they work hard to keep you there. When I got out my dream of becoming a professional mus
