During my freshman year in college, one of my personal goal was running the NYC marathon. I invited friends to join this challenge but none were interested. So I ran alone.
I couldn’t run more than 2 miles when I first started. But after training almost every day for 6 months, I was finally running across New York City. It was a surreal moment - with more tears coming down my face as I got closer to the finish line.
But there weren’t tears of joy, they were tears of deep unfulfillment. I felt worse crossing the finish line without having anyone to celebrate with than the times I was suicidal.
It made realize that achieving success alone is the ultimate failure.
And I was even more afraid to run my life the way I ran this marathon: chasing after money, fame, personal accomplishments - thinking I will be fulfilled & happy once I achieved those things.
Life’s best experiences are shared with people you truly care for. It’s not about the destination but about sharing the grind & journey to greatness along withlike-minded friends.
That’s when I built my first 6 figure business by hosting events for entrepreneurs & tribe leaders under 30.
Hosting a conference grew my authority, connections, and influence. It also opened so many doors for collaborations and partners with path brothers and sisters.
But I faced one last challenge...
