Four Ways to Live an Epic Life – Preston Smiles & Alexi Panos

Published

on

live an epic life

My name is Erik Andress. I am a high-school teacher, a family man, a hot-wing connoisseur and the host of “How to Be a Grownup Podcast”, the first show on the new Addicted2Success podcast network.

Alexi Panos is a former model & rap star turned motivational speaker, entrepreneur, and compassionate coach whose MISSION in life is to enable you to be the powerhouse you were destined to be.  

Preston Smiles is a motivational speaker, thought leader, and social entrepreneur who’s spoken word motivation is exploding in popularity on YouTube.

In this podcast, my favorite power couple shares valuable insight on how their past experiences and personal choices have given them rare insight into what it means to live a truly happy life. I have compiled some of my favorite bits of advice that Preston and Alexi had to offer, and have summarized them here for you:

1. Your history doesn’t dictate your destiny

You are not the mistakes of your past.  Part of being human is screwing up.  We all fall down.  We all stumble from time to time.  However, the scars that your past heartache has left, do not dictate your ability to be amazing today.  Those scars are lessons that are there to push you and teach you to be the unbelievable person you are destined to be.  Whether you know it or not, you have boundless and infinite potential within yourself just waiting to be unlocked.  Let go of who you were and take steps to become the person you want to be!

2. You are the average of the five people you hang out with most

Want to be successful in business?  Want to be healthy, fit and vibrant?  Want to enhance your relationships? Great!  Stop kicking it with people who enable you to make choices that keep you stuck and stagnant in life. Start hanging out with people who are obsessed with progress.  Chill with friends who view themselves as victors not victims.  Surround yourself with individuals on an upwards trajectory and learn from their successes and failures.  When you find yourself in this new circle of influence, don’t be surprised when you start to experience abundance on a level you have never seen before!

3. When you let go of labels, you see that love is the one thing we all share

We are not defined by the labels that other people place on us.  Beyond our race, creed, sexual orientation, or political leanings, we are simply people of love.  We all want to feel safe and loved.  We all want to feel validated and know that we matter.  We all want those that we care about to find success, feel safe, and loved.  As soon as you accept that these are fundamental truths that we all share, the sooner you can start to connect on a deeper and more heart-centered level with others.

4. Practice gratitude and watch your life change forever

Take the time to notice and reflect on the things you are grateful for in the “here and now”.  Too often we get stuck in the haze of past decisions or get lost in our vision of the future, and forget to see what is in front of us in the present moment.  When you practice gratitude on a regular basis you will sleep better, experience more positive emotions, have more productive business interactions, find that it is easier to express kindness and even get sick less frequently

Check out this podcast interview with Preston and Alexi to learn all their tips, tricks, and techniques they want you to know to live a more epic and empowered life.

Joel Brown (Founder of Addicted2Success.com)

Published

on

Ben Kelly

Millionaire Entrepreneur, Speaker, Trainer and Investor Ben Kelly shares his principles with you for Rapid Transformation.

Ben Kelly was a financially crippled bricklayer with large debt along with a debilitating mindset and low self worth as he struggled for purpose with a feeling of very little hope of a better life.

However, Ben managed to turn that around in 2 short years through a strong desire to learn, grow and apply all that he learned in facing his fears and identity attachments that held him back.

Ben leads a movement of thousands around the world, speaking to large groups throughout Australia, the US, the UK and Asia sharing the lessons he has learned and the process that helped him to go from a depressed bricklayer unable to voice himself to being able to confidently speak to thousands on how life can change in a moment with a strong growth mindset and a willingness to leave behind what is not in service to your greater self.

His successful network marketing business has allowed him, along with his sister Peta to retire their single mother of four “Christine” and alleviate all of her financial burden. Ben loves travelling the world to lead people to their own empowerment, growth and expansion so they can step into greater expressed versions of themselves.
