Welcome to a new future for the human family
“Adversity is the diamond dust Heaven polishes its jewels with.”
- Thomas Carlyle
Here are the goals and philosophies behind Existing2Living:
Everything we want in life, health, wealth and happiness, lies waiting for us beyond our limits within the place where adversity lives: The Unknown. Because if you want something you have never gotten before, you will have to do something you have never done before and be someone you have never been before. That inherently implies taking risks.
And with risk comes fear. It is a neurological reality that all experiences of life are first processed through the parts of the brain associated with fear. So it is not our enemy, it is an essential part of our humanity. And if we learn how to use it, it will be our greatest ally in the journey to living a full life.
The distinction between simply existing and really living lies on the boundary between your comfort zone and everything that lies beyond it. This is not just the key to finding success in any endeavor either, this is what makes us happy.
In his bestselling book, “Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience,” psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi found that:
“Contrary to what we usually believe, the best moments in our lives, are not the passive, receptive, relaxing times—although such experiences can also be enjoyable, if we have worked hard to attain them. The best moments usually occur when a person’s body or mind is stretched to its limits in a voluntary effort to accomplish something difficult and worthwhile.Optimal experience is thus something that we make happen. For each person there are thousands of opportunities, challenges to expand ourselves.”
This site is here to help you embrace those opportunities to expand yourself and take that leap into the unknown so you live each day with unbridled enthusiasm for the gift that is a human life.
Using the principles of human psychology, neuroscience and a greater understanding of how we function as human beings, Existing2Living will help you master your mind, body, heart, spirit and business. These as the 5 elements essential to a life of fulfillment.
Does business seem out of place in that list? It might, but in reality, it is not.
Because entrepreneurship is access to freedom. It is what allows me to run across every country in the world while providing for my family. And even if you don’t want to run across every country in the world, I am sure you could benefit from the financial and time freedom that having your own business would provide. It might give you more time to spend with your family or more time to engage in that hobby you have always wanted to pursue. Whatever makes you come alive, entrepreneurship provides a means to access that.

What makes me qualified to help you on this journey?
In my 28 years, I have recovered from a life of drugs at a young age to now living a full life. Since then I have been skydiving, cave diving, ice diving, scuba diving, I have spent 7 months in a war zone with the US Marines, climbed mountains all over the world, climbed vertical cliffs without the safety of a rope, started two businesses, spoken on a stage at a fortune 100 company, spent one month dragging a 190 pound sled 350 miles across the second largest icecap in the world and I am now training to run across every country in the world.
The common elements in all these endeavors was fear, adversity and risk.
By reading over a book a week on maximizing the human potential and studying under some of the greatest minds in personal development, I have been able to understand the psychology and neuroscience of how my brain processes these experiences of life. I have found a way to embrace these gifts and I am now on a mission to help others do the same.
