Ep. 87 – Life is mundane

In today’s episode, I would like to talk about the ordinary things in life and why I believe they matter way more than we think. Living in a society that pressures us to live a life of constant adventure and excitement in order for us to be happy, can make the little things in life seem insignificant and not worthwhile. Well, I want to tell you that the mundane matters, probably a lot more than you think…

Ep. 86 – Doing the habitual

Ep. 85 – The virtue of discipline

Wouldn’t you like to be more disciplined?! Wouldn’t you like to get more done without constantly sabotaging your mission?! I bet you would. As do we all.

This is one of the question I will be addressing in this episode, so let’s get it! 

Ep. 84 – Frantic or authentic

We all like to claim that we’re authentic beings all of the time. Fact of the matter however, is that most of us are just not. Not even a little. So what can we do to become more authentic and express who we truly are? Wanna find out?! Leeet’s get it!!!

Of course there are.  But how can we implement such constructive new behaviors? Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 77 – Hocus Focus

In today’s brief episode, I would like to discuss the topic of insight. More specifically, I would like to elaborate on the extent to which our insights can either contribute to or take away from our personal growth journey. Wanna find out more? Leeet’s get it.

Ep. 75 – Leaps of faith

Most of us would love to make more progress in life. Simultaneously, most of us are extremely risk averse. How come that in a time and age in which opportunity lies everywhere, we still don’t dare to take a leap of faith, and more importantly, what is the price we pay for not taking any risk at all? Wanna find out?! Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 74 – Can I see your ID?!

Nature versus nurture, that is basically the topic of today’s episode. How much of who we are is shaped through our DNA and how much is shaped through the passing of time and the filter of experience? Wanna find out?! Leeet’s get it. 

Ep. 73 – Kindness vs. blindness

In this episode, I would like to elaborate once again on one of my personal proxies.

Today, I would like to elaborate on one rule specifically and explain when and how you can apply it the best. You ready? Let’s get it!

Ep. 72 – Love or attachment

In today’s episode, I would like to discuss the difference between love and attachment. In the day and age of digital dating apps, meeting new people has never been so easy. However, could it be that the drastic simplification of access to a myriad of people on a global scale also come with a downside? Could it be that there has never been so much confusion about love and attachment as we have today? Tune in to find out…

Ep. 71 – Addict of the past

In today’s episode, I would like to talk about why most of us are still stuck in the past.

Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!!! 

Ep. 70 – No shortcuts in life

It took me a while to understand this lesson, but now that I finally got it, I can’t wait to share this one with you. Whether you are looking to make a quick buck or rushing into a relationship, just hold on and hear me out first. You won’t regret it. 

Ep. 69 – How committed are you really?!

In today’s episode, I would like to discuss the correlation between results and commitment. One of the questions I get frequently asked is: ”How come I’m not yielding the results after all the effort I put into my goals?!”. I personally believe however, that the results we are yielding are a direct measure of how committed we are to our cause. So, my question to you: are you really that committed or would you just like to say you are?! Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 68 – The silence of crisis

We all go through difficult times, we all go through crises at some point in our lives. However, I’ve come to learn that most of our suffering happens in silence. It’s not as bombastic or dramatic as you’d probably think it is. This in and of itself poses a new challenge, namely a total lack of awareness. Wanna find out why? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 67 – Minutes of progress

These past past few months many of you have been asking me for my schedule and how I go through my day. The answer: I work with time blocks. In this episode, I would like to discuss the concept of time blocking. What is it? Why is it so efficient? And how can you start using it yourself? Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 66 – Decision Manifesto

One of the most important virtues on our way to success is that of decisiveness. But how can one make a sane decision in a world that offers so many alternatives? Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!!!

In today’s episode, I would like to talk about the concept of suffering. More specifically, I would like to discuss what kind of choices we have when it comes to this subject. Some will say that suffering is something that must be avoided at all cost. Others might slightly disagree and guess what, I happen to be one of them. Wanna find out why? Then check it out this new episode. Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 63 – On to the next one

For the final episode of this year, I decided to do a small recap. Despite of all the mayhem 2020 brought upon us, I can safely say that it has also brought me many blessings. Wanna find out how? Leeet’s get it!

Ep. 62 – Adapt and overcome

These are some challenging times. That much is clear. What is less clear, however, is how to deal with it. It is no secret that most people today are not properly equipped to deal with adversity. So, I decided to make yet another episode on this topic. May it help you in whatever you are going through…You ready? Leeet’s get it.

Ep. 61 – Speak your truth, homie!

I feel like speaking your truth is a virtue that only few of us master. In today’s episode, I would like to talk about what it actually means to speak your truth. What are you putting at risk by doing so and maybe even more importantly, what are you putting at risk when you don’t? Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 60 – The time that we waste

In today’s episode, I would like to discuss our relationship with time. More specifically, I would like to discuss why so many of us just sit around and waste it.

Rather, I would like to address what we can do to improve our relationship with it, so we can stop procrastinating and start doing the things we love. You ready? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 59 – Say ‘yes’ first!

In today’s episode, I would like to discuss whether or not you should be saying yes to things you are still totally unprepared for. I believe that when it comes to our personal growth, we have to say ‘yes’ first, even though we have no clue how we can pull things off, because it triggers our problem solving thinking in such a way that we can almost always come up with the solutions…Wanna find out how? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 58 – Take off that mask

In today’s episode, I would like to talk about the different masks we wear every single day. Most of the times we use it as a protection mechanism to ensure that no one can see who we truly are. Looking at it from that perspective, taking of our masks is one hell of an act of bravery, that I can only encourage you to try out. Wanna find out how? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 57 – Bear with me

I think it’s no secret that 2020 has been one hell of a roller coaster. So many things that have happened in such a short time. In this episode, I would like to shed some light on the situation and provide you with some perspective to get through this. All you have to do is bear with me…

Ep. 56 – Present for tomorrow

How can we live in the present moment, without letting that happen at the expense of our future? Likewise, how can we plan ahead for our future, without letting that happen at the expense of our present moment? In this episode, I would like to talk about why it is so difficult to feel a sense of presence when we are ‘on our grind’, constantly worrying about a future that doesn’t even exist yet. I definitely have some insights that I am learning along the way. Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 55 – Handling the chaos

We all have those moments in which life gets a bit too overwhelming and we don’t know how to regain control.

Use them whenever you feel like it’s all getting too much and remember that it’s all part of the process. You ready for it? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 54 – BFF (Better Fail Fast)

We all have these pivotal moments in our lives that we remember as the painful lessons we learned along the way. In today’s episode, I’d like to discuss one of these lessons. BFF, traditionally known as Best Friends Forever, will carry a slightly different meaning in this one. Wanna find out how? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 53 – What’s the addiction?!

I believe that each and everyone one of us has some sort of an addiction to some extent. Usually, when we think of the word ‘addiction’, we think of the most stereotypical addictions, such as smoking, drugs or alcohol. However, addiction come in so many more ways and forms, more than most of us can even begin to imagine. In today’s episode, I would like to discuss this topic and also share some personal insights. Wanna find out more?! Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 52 – Happy anniversary!

Happy anniversary folks!!! After one year of hard work, up and downs, I can gladly announce that we survived our very first year. Wauw, what an amazing ride it has been so far.

What has happened in these past 12 months and what lessons did I take out of doing this wonderful thing consistently? Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 51 – Momma, let me be

In today’s episode, I would like to discuss the relationship we have with our parents. What are some of the obstacles most of us run into when it comes to expressing our ambitions, feelings and orientations towards them, and how can we improve communication in such a way, so that our relationship with the two people we love the most improves as well? Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 50 – The decision is yours

Today’s episode is all about decision making. Most of us are not really aware of how much we let other people dictate the course of our lives, but whether you like it or not, you are always deciding, even when other people decide for you. It’s about time you realize this, my friend, so let’s get it!

Ep. 49 – Let it all go

In today’s episode, I would like to discuss our need for certainty and our inability to let go of all the things we can’t control. Why is it so difficult to deal with uncertainty and why can’t we just rely on those things that actually are within our control? Would you like to find out? Leet’s get it!!!

Ep. 48 – Ignoring or exploring

Two weeks ago, I talked about the myths of passion and the most common misconceptions around it. In today’s episode, I would like to go deeper into the subject and talk about when to ignore something (or someone) and when to explore it. More specifically, how can you prevent yourself from exploring that what you should be ignoring and vice versa? Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!

Ep. 47 – No failure, only feedback

Why is it that so many of us are afraid of failure and more importantly, what does it even mean to fail? In today’s episode, I would like to discuss the concept of failure. When should you actually consider something as a failure and when just as feedback? Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!

Ep. 46 – Myths of passion

We all want to ”find our passion”. It almost seems like we’re obsessed with it. However, what if we got it all wrong? What if passion isn’t something we’re inherently born with? What if our search for doing what we love and loving what we do, has been a fallacy all along. In today’s episode, I will address the most common misconceptions around passion and provide you with some real insights on how to go about it. You ready? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 45 – Abandoning the strategies

In every relationship there comes a point where we have to abandon our strategies and replace them with more vulnerability. It goes without saying that this is probably one of the most challenging as well as most courageous things to do. In today’s episode, I would like to talk about why we even use strategies in the first place, what they look like and how you can gradually transition into something more real. Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it. 

Ep. 44 – Patience my friend

One of the greatest virtues we can accrue on our path to achievement and fulfillment, is that of patience. Having said that, I believe that there are a lot of misconceptions to what the word actually entails. In today’s episode, I would like to address some of these misconceptions, so that you may have a better idea on how to become more patient with your own personal journey…

Ep. 43 – Come short or go far

All of us have a story to tell. Yet, most of us don’t, and the reason is usually more or less the same: we’re afraid of how the world might perceive us when we’re being our truest self. In today’s episode, I would like to talk about why it is so important to share your message with the world. Also, I would like to talk about owning your shortcomings, so you can finally turn them into a strength. You ready?! Leeet’s get it!

Ep. 42 – Piece of cake

Today’s episode is all about the one thing we can’t ever get enough from, which is money! We all want to be rich, but very few of us will actually become rich. But more importantly, what does it even mean “to be rich”? When can we call someone rich and also, what is the real value of money in today’s rapidly evolving world? Like to find out? Leeet’s get it!

Ep. 41 – Motivation Fiasco

Don’t you just love it when you’re looking for motivation and you finally land on that new video of Denzel Washington giving a speech at Harvard University? I bet you do. Moreover, you probably love it so much that you rely on it a little bit too frequently to get things done. In today’s episode, I want to address some of the issues I encounter with motivation and the false sense of accomplishment that often comes with it. Wanna find out more? Leeet’s get it!

Ep. 40 – Thou shall make sacrifices

I believe that on our path to success, one of the difficulties we all have to face at some point or another is that of sacrifice. Intuitively we know this. Yet, for some reason, most of us have no clue how to grasp this notion and make the sacrifice we’re supposed to be making, and that is exactly what I will be talking about out today. You ready? Leet’s get it!

Ep. 39 – No more fake success

Life is what you make of it, but if what you make of it is built on fake success, then by default it won’t give you any sense of satisfaction. Learning to differentiate real success from fake success in a an age that is more digitally social, but socially disconnected than ever, I think it’s extremely important to understand and question the motives behind your fuel to succeed. Wanna find out what that could be, then stick with me on this one. Leet’s get it!

Ep. 38 – Time to get out

In today’s episode, I’d like to address our favorite place in the world to be in, namely: the comfort zone. How do we get there and more importantly, how can we get out of it asap? There are many reasons why one can get stuck in the comfort zone and I personally believe that questioning what those reason could be, can potentially give you the head start you were looking for. Wanna find out more? Then let’s get it!

Ep. 37 – No more excuses!

We all go through stuff. We all have circumstances in our lives that we would rather not have. The question, however, is: what are you going to do about it? In today’s episode, I would like to encourage you to stop making excuses. To stop using that what you’re going through as an excuse for not executing, but instead, to look for ways to use it as a strength, rather than a weakness. Are you with me? Leeet’s get it!

Ep. 36 – Be the change

Everybody wants change, but nobody wants to change. In today’s episode however, I would like to talk about the best way you can help someone you love. Very often, we try to enforce our good intentions upon others. But as most of you probably know already, that usually backfires more than we could ever imagine. So, what is the best way to help the people we love? Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it.

Ep. 35 – Ain’t such a thing as perfect

In today’s episode, I would like to discuss the concept of perfectionism. What does it actually mean to be perfectionist? Is it a good thing, is it a bad thing? For such a long time, I considered myself to be a perfectionist, but it wasn’t until that long ago that I realized what it truly meant for me to be one and whether or not I had to do something about it….Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!

Ep. 34 – Kindness is the remedy

With all the turmoil that is going on in the world right now, I decided to dedicate this episode to the controversial topic of racism and why I believe that kindness is the remedy for the many challenges our world is facing today. That is not to say that there aren’t deeply-rooted underlying systemic problems that need to be addressed politically, but it is to say that on the individual level – as difficult as it may seem – kindness and empathy can resolve many of the negative emotions so many of us are using as an outlet right now….Trust me, I get it….So let’s get it….

Ep. 33 – Double-check your fuel

In my many years of figuring out my blueprint, I’ve often come to notice that many of the things I was trying to pursue, I was pursuing them for the wrong reason. In this episode today, I would like to explain why just ”doing the right thing” isn’t enough. We need to learn to do the right thing for the right reasons. In other words, we have to double-check our fuel that is attempting to move us forward. Better get to it I guess…

Ep. 32 – Challenge the universe

So, Joe Rogan just signed a contract with Spotify for a whopping 100 million dollars, an astronomical amount for a podcaster. However, the guy is obviously so much more than just that. How did he get there? Well, by a lot of hard work, dedication and above all consistency, three crucial elements any given person will need to defy the odds and overcome the challenges of the universe. I guess my question really boils down to: how are you challenging the universe? Only one way to find out. Leeet’s get it.

Ep. 31 – Dude, stop chasing

Today’s episode is about dating and relationships. More specifically, it’s about why most guys are so caught up with chasing women instead of attracting them. What are some of the driving mechanisms behind this and more importantly, what can you do as a guy to drastically improve the outcome? Fellas, this one is for you, leeet’s get it….

Ep. 30 – Inner dialogues yooo

Yes! Episode 30 already! In today’s episode I would like to address the question ”who are you?”. Are you ‘you’ or are you the voice that is constantly talking to you? Everyday we’re engaged in the inner dialogues we’re constantly having with ourselves. So which of the two are we really? Wanna find out? Leeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 29 – Good luck, bad luck

In today’s episode I would like to address the following question: is there such a thing as good luck or bad luck, or is there only such a thing as perspective. It is easy to label something as good or bad in the short term, but have you ever wondered about the impact an outcome can have in the long term? Let’s find out….

Ep. 28 – Bad news travels fast

In today’s episode I would like to talk about reputation. Why is it so important to safeguard your integrity at all costs? I decided to record this episode as an opposing sound to episode 25 ”Dealing with FOPO”, cause even though you don’t want to care about other people’s opinions, you definitely DO want to care about your reputation. You ready for this? leeet’s get it!

Ep. 27 – Just be

Ever wondered what it means to just be? In today’s episode, I would like to discuss the coping mechanisms we use when it comes to failure. How do we look at failure and how could we approach it differently, especially during these times of crisis? Like to find out? Leeet’s get it.

Ep. 26 – A pro in procrastination

Are you one of those people that knows what they should be doing, but you keep postponing it for as long as you possibly can? Do you consider yourself a pro in procrastination? Then this episode is for you. Especially now, in a time of crisis, there is no better moment to reflect on what you should do and take massive action on it. In this episode, I would like to go a bit deeper on why we procrastinate and what it is that you can do to overcome the obstacles, so you can start living a more meaningful and purposeful life. You ready? Leeet’s get it!

Ep. 25 – Dealing with FOPO

FOPO, we all deal with it at one point or another. Some people are dealing with the Fear of Other People’s Opinions on an ongoing basis, while others are barely concerned with it. What does it mean to have FOPO and more importantly, what’s the best way to tackle it? Let’s find out…

Ep. 24 – One relationship, three lives

I think we can all agree we’re living in some very strange times. For many of us, these strange times will pose a lot of difficult challenges, especially when it comes to our intimate relationships. With all the pressure of being forced to stay at home during times of extreme uncertainty, many relationships will undoubtedly be put under pressure. In today’s episode, I would like to elaborate on how to survive a relationship during a period of crisis. What are the thing you can and should do and more importantly, what not?! So, without any further ado, leeeet’s get it. 

Ep. 23 – And then there was time

Ep. 22 – Dissonance of love

After some consideration, I decided to make an episode on intimate relationships in modern society. More specifically, I’d like to share some of the trends and viewpoints that I’ve noticed looking around me these last couple of years. Want to know what those viewpoints are? Leeet’s get it.

Ep. 21 – Check your default settings

So, for a long time, I’ve been fascinated by what really drives our behaviour. Why do we respond to certain thing in a certain way, knowing that there are better ways to go about it? In this episode, I would like to elaborate on the default settings of happiness and more specifically, the abundance and scarcity mindset. Care to know more?! Leeeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 20 – The power of consistency

I think that the path to success consists out many characteristics, such as discipline, hard work, intelligence and to an extent maybe even luck. However, I genuinely believe that the one that truly separates the great from the good is understanding the power of consistency. In this episode, I would like to elaborate on this characteristic. What does it truly mean to be consistent and more importantly, how do you decide when to stay consistent and when to give up and move on to the next thing. Let’s find out….

Ep. 19 – Analysis Paralysis

Overthinking…We all do it at one point or another. I know that I have been guilty of it more than I can remember. In this episode, I would like to share my viewpoints on this topic. I would like to talk about why overthinking, more often than not, leads to paralysis and more importantly, what you can do to prevent it from happening again in the future. You ready for this?! Leeeet’s get it! 

Ep. 18 – Go through it, not around it

In a world that is trying so hard to help us forget our pain, I would like to remind you that pain isn’t always necessarily a bad thing. Moreover, in order for us to grow as human beings, pain is inevitable, as it is in those painful moments that we can learn our biggest lessons. Heartbreaks, failure, judgement, rejection…They’re all just part of the process and the only way to deal with them is by understanding that the process is to go through it, not around it…

Ep. 17 – The happiness muscle

Is happiness a given or a skill? That’s exactly what I would like to discuss in this episode. We all have something that I would like to call the happiness muscle. And the happiness muscle works in the exact same manner as our physical muscles. Sounds kinda weird, right?! Well, tune in if you want to more know about…Leeeeeet’s get it!

Ep. 16 – YOLO

After the tragic accident of Kobe Bryant last Sunday, I would like to dedicate this episode to him. As a kid, I used to play basketball for a long time and Kobe Bryant was just on his way to becoming one of the greatest players of all time. In this episode I would like to talk about some of the lessons I’ve learned growing up with Kobe and also how we only have one at bat in life. Because this tragedy proves it ones again: growing old is a false assumption…Leeeeet’s get it.

Ep. 15 – Thou shall not judge

In this episode, I would like to discuss how judging other people influences your life. I believe that judging is also a reflection of how we look at ourselves. Our self-image is always trying to maintain its integrity and when we judge others – be it positive or negative – we are setting ourselves up for failure in the long run. Don’t believe me?! Let me explain why…

Ep. 14 – Put on some shades

Ever wondered what the best way would be to deal with the haters? In this episode, I would like to discuss the emotion of jealousy and why it more often than not comes from the people we care about the most. This obviously raises the question: how can we remain connected to our loved ones without sabotaging our efforts and endeavours?! Ready for episode 14?! Leeeet’s get it! 

Ep. 13 – How much shit can you eat?!

Are you willing to eat shit?! A lot of us want to become successful, yet most of are not willing to do what it takes. In this episode, I would like to discuss why ‘eating shit’ is and always will be a necessary component of the hustle. Moreover, I will explain what ‘eating shit’ actually means. You might be surprised….

Ep. 12 – Guilty conscience

The first episode of a new decade. Time to talk about real stuff! In this episode, I would like to talk about our natural instinct to feel guilty whenever we slip up. However, it’s been proven that feelings of guilt usually tend to lead to more guilt and thus more procrastination. What you should do instead?! Well, check out this freshly new podcast and you will find out soon…

Ep. 11 – Why wait?!

Since this will be the final episode of 2019, I decided to make a quick podcast on my viewpoints on new year’s resolutions and why I personally think they’re total BS. Bare with me on this one, because even though the message may be unpopular, I can guarantee you that the intention is real…

Ep. 10 – Back to square one

Episode 10 and still going hard! In this special episode, I would like to talk about whether being back to square one is a good or a bad thing. According to grandmaster Tony Robbins, progress equals happiness. But what if we tried something just to find out that that something wasn’t meant for us?! I’d like you to hear me out on this one, because I’m really curious if this message will resonate with you. So as usual, leeeet’s get it!!!

Ep. 9 – Who am I?!

Hello guys, in this episode I would like to dive a bit deeper into the topic of ‘identity’. More specifically, I would like to elaborate on whether our identities are shaped through a process of self-discovery or self-creation. Just to be clear, this episode will definitely be a bit more complex than usual, but then again, so are our identities…Are you ready?! Leeet’s get it!

Ep. 8 – Stand out homie!

To fit in or to stand out? That’s the question. In a world that tries so hard to put us in a box, the act of standing out takes more courage than it ever did before. Yet, I personally believe that having the courage to do so, is the quickest way to happiness. Wanna know why? Make sure to tune in on yet another episode of the Blueprint Podcast… 

Ep. 7 – The confidence game

Everyone would like to be more confident. There’s no doubt about it. Some of us are extremely confident in one area of our life, just to find out that quite the opposite is true in another area. However, I don’t believe that confidence is something you’re either inherently born with or not. In fact, I believe that confidence is a skill that can be developed over time and consistent practice. In this episode, I would like to talk about how to develop that skill and which mindset it requires to win the confidence game. You ready?! Leeeeeet’s get it!  

Ep. 6 – Choose your amigos wisely

Have you ever heard of the sentence ‘’ You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with’’? Although it may sound cliché, I would like to explain how this sentence has literally changed my life forever. Success leaves clues, but moreover, it’s contagious. The moment you see the possibilities, is the moment you can no longer unsee it. So, who are your friends? What are they up to, and more importantly, how do they inspire you to become the best version of yourself? Let’s find out…

Ep. 5 – The inside job

In today’s episode, I would like to elaborate on our perception of happiness and the most common misconceptions around it. I believe that our search for happiness is an inside job, which in my opinion, has very little to do with the outer world. Check out this episode if you’d like to know why…

Ep. 4 – Leave the place with grace

Hi there and welcome back to yet another episode of the Blueprint Podcast! You must be wondering what I’m going to talk about in this one. Well, let me tell you. The title of today’s episode is based one of my proxies I use anytime I have to deal with rejection. To be more specific, ‘’Leave the place with grace’’ is my personal way of reminding myself that somethings (or some people for that matter) just ain’t worth stressing over, so instead of trying to hold on to it, I rather just let go and leave the place with grace, and I hope that after today, you will be able to do so as well…

Ep. 3 – Unleash the cat in you

Cats, cats, cats. Some of us may love them, others may hate them, but I can guarantee you that we can all learn something from them. In this episode, I would like to elaborate on the universal eccentric behavior these little fluffy animals demonstrate across the globe and what we can learn from it. From living in the present moment to knowing your self-worth, cats seem to be the living example of how we should go through life…

Ep. 2 – Embrace your inner child

So, after an interesting 1st episode last week, I decided to go a bit in a different direction for this one. In this episode I’d like to explain why we should all stop taking things so seriously and why we should start embracing our inner child. Because in the last couple of years, I’ve come to learn that ‘little me’ actually has quite a few answers to many of the challenges I face on a daily basis. I just need to be brave enough to ask him for help. What’s more is that I’ve come to realize that my younger version has a fairly strong intuition, infinite creative imagination and a great sense of adventure, and that’s exactly why I believe that reconnecting with that little youngster could be of tremendous help in our personal path to self-actualization…

Ep. 1 – Be like Arnold

Hi guys,

Welcome to the very first episode of the Blueprint Podcast. I’m glad you made it!

Since this is the first episode, I figured it would be nice to start off with a personal touch by talking about my all-time hero, Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. I’ve been looking up to Arnold since I was kid, obviously by watching some off his best action movies like Terminator and Predator. However, over the many years that I have been following him, I also learned some valuable lessons along the way that I believe are worth sharing.

You ready?! Leeeet’s get it!
