What Is “Wake Up Warrior”?
For the last year, I’ve been part of Garrett J. White’s “Wake Up Warrior” Academy.
To say my life has transformed because of this mastermind would be a gross understatement.
Below this video, I’m going to share with you a deeply personal letter I wrote to my mentor and Founder of “Wake Up Warrior”, Garrett White. First though, watch this video for a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the blood, sweat, and tears that 45 men shed at Warrior Week in Laguna Beach.
My Letter To Garrett J. White
14 months ago I was broke, scared, and alone.
I had just lost my sole source of income and a love relationship that I thought could last forever abruptly ended.
I had no self worth, felt disconnected from my purpose, and had no idea how to make money to pay my rent.
I was terrified when you told me the investment required to join Warrior. I didn’t have that sort of money at the time, but the voice inside my head said find a way. So I became resourceful…I borrowed from family and took on debt to make this investment in myself.
The results in my life over the last 14 months are nothing short of miraculous:
- I launched a coaching business from scratch and am now coaching 10 clients who are paying me more than I ever imagined.
- I moved from sleeping on a half inflated air mattress on the floor of an empty apartment to a beautiful condo right on the beach in San Diego.
- I went from feeling no self worth to creating a deep satisfied sense of self and self knowing.
- I live my purpose in life everyday and have created a business to support the lifestyle I desire.
- I have deeply authentic and meaningful friendships inside and outside the Warrior Brotherhood.
- I’ve become a #1 Amazon Best Selling Author through publishing my first book, “The Fearless Mindset: The Entrepreneurs’ Guide To Get Fit In Less Time, Double Your Income, And Become Unstoppable.”
Below is a speech I made at my last Warrior Week asking for support from the brotherhood as I was preparing to launch my new book, “The Fearless Mindset”
Above and beyond these results, there are 3 lessons that you taught me that will forever change my life:
Lesson #1: My Darkness Is My Greatest Gift
I ignored the darkness of my past for the majority of my life. I blocked out the pain of my parent’s alcoholism and drug addictions. Until you guided me to see the light in my darkness. To see that my greatest life lessons have come from my most painful experiences. To see that there is a message hidden deep inside the “mess” of my life. You helped me uncover this truth and therefore have liberated me to share my message with the world and change lives as a result.
Lesson #2: Be Real, Raw, & Relevant
The truth is the only thing that will set me free. I learned to stop lying about my needs, wants and desires. I learned that raw honesty is the only path to paradise and that the world conspires for your greatness when you choose to show up real and raw. I learned to stop lying to myself and others about reality.
Lesson #3: Do The Work
As Christopher Stubbs once said, “You don’t get what you want. You don’t get what you think you deserve. You get what you’re committed to!” The reason I got the results above is because I became highly committed to doing the work. There was no way to avoid the work and get the results I desired. So I took massive action despite my fears, doubts, and limiting beliefs. I launched my podcast, started posting raw videos to facebook, and shamelessly shared my message with the world.
Brother, I just want you to know how much I love you. You guided me over the last 14 months on my rite of passage from boyhood to manhood, and for that I am forever grateful.
I will recommend Warrior to the world until the day I die. For that is one of the greatest gifts I can give to a man who is walking blindly through his life.
Live Your Life Fearlessly,
