One Simple Change = 17 More Quality Years

Calorie restriction (CR) still proves to be the ONLY way to extend maximum life span in mammals. Much more so in shorter lived smaller mammals (up to 30% or more).

If it could do the same for humans, the food industry landscape would change dramatically. But it doesn’t. We might be able to squeeze out a few extra years at best.

But again, that’s maximum life span. CR does sooo much more. It’s the most sure fire way to totally AVOID, and at least delay virtually every single aging-related disease on the planet.

So it won’t extend human’s maximum life spans from 120 to 150, but it will significantly extend average life spans. In fact, a reasonable estimate is 10-15 years.

And it gets even better. Not only will you probably live a lot longer, but you will live BETTER. Without CR, we may expect to live to around late 70’s on average. The bad part about that is, most can expect to suffer for over seven years, lingering, waiting for death to relieve the agony.

But those who practice CR can expect about 90 active independent years, and then die relatively quickly and comfortably. Adding it up, look for over 17 more QUALITY years.

You still die though… unless… we see likely breakthrough radical life-extending technologies during the extra years you bought.

Then the lid is off, and you may be on the path to full body rejuvenation.

CR is a tough lifestyle for almost everyone though, in spite of the life or death benefits.

So what do we do? Eat comfort foods? And a lot of them? We could, and most do, in spite of the long term consequences.

Fortunately. There’s a middle ground that could give you most, if not all the benefits of CR that is much easier to adopt. It does take committing to a consistent habit, but is there anything worth having that doesn’t? Don’t think about that. I’ll answer it for you.

“No”

Plan B is regular intermittent fasting (IF) such as alternate day fasting, doing one or two 24 hour fasts a week… or eating every day, but spacing your last meal of the day and your first meal of the next about 17 hours apart.

All three variations may work as well as CR, assuming your food is nutritious and you consume less calories overall. (This may also be the most effective weight loss strategy on the planet)

The latest research looks at the relationship between fasting and immune function, which turns out to interest the cancer research community, among others.

Ways to better recover from treatments like chemotherapy that greatly weaken the immune system are high on the priority list. There is already a fair amount of work underway on generating better outcomes for cancer patients by combining CR with chemotherapy. So it shouldn’t be surprising to find that there is funding for work on IF as well.

Prolonged fasting cycles (no food for two to four days at a time over the course of six months) kill older and damaged immune cells and generate new ones. The research also has implications for chemotherapy tolerance and for those with a wide range of immune system deficiencies, including autoimmunity disorders.

This may be effective because fasting triggers stem cell regeneration of damaged aging immune systems.

Why Overpopulation Will Never Be a Problem

When I initially propose the concept of extreme life extension, I’m often met with a knee-jerk reaction which goes something like this:

“What will we do with all the people?”

It’s a logical ages-old question actually. But like most “obvious” flawed arguments, it’s easily dis-proven once you dig deep. So let’s go deep and see what we find:

Amazingly enough, when you factor out immigration, industrialized countries are actually seeing population declines rather than increases. And according to world renowned economist Julian Simon, our current resources and technologies (without considering those that are undeveloped) could support 6 billion more people. Misallocation of those resources and technologies, usually due to bureaucratic bottlenecks and political greed and ineptitude, are the culprits.

Since the Industrial Revolution, alarmists screamed doom and gloom about overcrowding and limited resources (backed by their “statistics”). However, the opposite has happened. The population increased by 740% since then, and standards of living have soared. It’s not so much a question of resources as it is one of education, individual productivity and distribution—social problems, not life-extension problems. As long as people produce more than they consume, it’s impossible to run out of resources.

Common sense and intuition say there should be a demographic catastrophe, if people were actually immortal and continued to reproduce. But what would the science (mathematics) say? Recently, Drs. Leonid and Natalia Gavrilov answered that question with a study sponsored by the SENS/Methuselah Foundation.

They proved it is possible to have sustainable population dynamics in a future hypothetical non-aging society.

They proved that (even) immortality, the joy of parenting and a sustainable population size are not mutually exclusive.

This is because a population of immortal reproducing organisms will grow indefinitely in time, but not necessarily indefinitely in size.

Many developed countries (like the studied Sweden) face dramatic decline in native-born population in the future and also risk losing their cultural identity due to massive immigration. Therefore, extension of healthy lifespan in these countries may in fact prevent, rather than create a demographic catastrophe.

The Gavrilovs painted five scenarios:

1. Negligible senescence where all anti-aging interventions start at age 60 years with 30-year time lag. Even in the case of defeating aging (no aging after 60 years) the natural population growth is relatively small (about 20% increase over 70 years).

2. Negligible senescence for a part of population (10%). What if only a small fraction of the population accepts anti-aging interventions. The population declines.

3. Negligible senescence for a part of population (10%) with growing acceptance (1 percent added to negligible senescence group each year), and the last remaining five percent of population refuse to apply these technologies in any circumstances. The Population still declines, but only slightly

4. Rejuvenation. Mortality declines after age 60 years until the levels observed at age 10 are reached; mortality remains constant thereafter. In this case, population would increase about 20% over 70 years. How about when rejuvenation starts at age 40 instead of age 60? Now we see a manageable 40% increase over 70 years.

5. And finally a more modest scenario where aging slows down still results in population declines.

A general conclusion of this study is that population changes are surprisingly small and slow in their response to dramatic life extension. Even in the case of the most radical life extension scenario, population growth could be relatively slow and may not necessarily lead to overpopulation. Therefore, the real concerns should be placed not on the threat of overpopulation, but rather on such potential obstacles to a successful biomedical war on aging, such as scientific, organizational and financial limitations.

Thank you Leonid and Natalie.

If you’d like to see details of their study, go to http://longevity-science.org/present.html.

The longer we keep ourselves alive, the more brainpower we have to see real and imagined problems through. Just as technology extends lives, it makes life more livable for larger populations. Telling people they should die to make room for others is an idiotic solution to any problem.

How to Safely Get off Your Meds

There’s ONE overriding reason most of us are so sick and die prematurely…

Humans are typically reactive as opposed to proactive when it comes to their health.

Now that you know this key to healthy longevity, I’m going to discuss the SINGLE most important proactive thing you can do to stay healthy naturally. Follow this advice, and you should be able to flush most, if not ALL of your prescription drugs within 1-8 months.

It’s no secret. I talked about it several times. And I recently spoke to an authority in this field who inspired and contributed to this blog, Dr. Thaddeus Gale. And it doesn’t have to cost you a dime.

Your single biggest enemy when it comes to your health is… Inflammation.

The concept for successfully understanding subclinical low grade inflammation and how it drives pain, disease and weight gain is vital to your success. Yet it’s commonly overlooked by mainstream media, the layperson and medical professionals.

Typical medical treatment is directed at reducing symptoms… not causes. It may give you a temporary false sense of security or improvement. But the long term result? Worsening and propagation of disease.

More often than not, inflammation leads to bummers such as weight gain, pain, arthritis, headaches, low energy, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, autoimmune issues and more.

Do you know why some feel “healthy” only to have a major health issue erupt seemingly out of nowhere? Because inflammation hides under the surface, chewing away at your insides until you suddenly drop dead from a heart attack… or get surprised with cancer.

This should scare the crap out of you!!!

Your current and future health is over 90% dependent upon that single controllable factor – subclinical low grade inflammation.

Get it under control and you will typically experience a high quality of life with little or no medical reliance.

Here’s your quickest way.

The sooner you understand this one idea for pursuing and maintaining your health, the sooner you’ll increase your chances of a long fulfilling and quality life with…

  • Increased energy
  • Improved mental clarity
  • Enhanced muscle tone
  • Better mobility
  • Weight loss (or maintaining proper weight)
  • Normal digestion and bowel function
  • Reduction or avoidance of acute and chronic pain
  • Faster recovery from travel/workouts/injury
  • Abdominal pain and G.E.R.D. (acid reflux) resolution
  • Reversal of O.S.A.S. (sleep apnea and snoring)
  • Reduction of chronic diseases including… Heart, Cancer, Diabetes, Stroke, Arthritis, I.B.S., Fibromyalgia, Back pain, RA/Lupus, Headaches, Acne, Etc.

Low inflammation = high quality of life with little to no medication reliance.

Moderate to high inflammation = substantial reduction in quality of life, increased medication reliance (with potential side effects).

Whenever you have ailments or pain re-experienced or maintained for more than two weeks, your are considered to have chronic, unnatural conditions, and typically mediated by low-grade subclinical inflammation.

And the absence of direct pain gives us a false sense of health security.

If you take ONE or more medications, including aspirin, or have any chronic health frustrations, you most likely have elevated inflammation. Ditto if you feel great but are aging.

The overwhelming majority of chronic issues normalize with elimination of chronic inflammation in 1-8 months of following an anti-inflammatory lifestyle.

There’s a seemingly endless list of inflammatory causes. While most of us have heard of gluten as related to wheat and grains including the associated health consequences, few have heard of other inflammatory components still present in gluten free products.

These inflammatory chemicals are equally powerful in causing headaches, arthritis, diabetes, chronic pain, low energy, cognitive decline, mental fog, I.B.S., bloating, diarrhea and chronic disease.

Dairy causes inflammation too. It has been linked to type I diabetes, MS, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. It also contains unnatural hormones… 70+ hormones have been identified in dairy products.

Stress, lack of exercise, processed foods… and of course simply aging, all contribute to inflammation. Sugar especially leads to serious inflammation and is linked to nearly every disease. Sugar not only contributes to fat, but also accelerates the aging and disease process.

Most oncologists will confirm: Sugar = Cancer.

If you haven’t seen this article yet, you should. It’s a simple guide to understanding and controlling your inflammation… and your overall wellness:

INFLAMMATION AND PAIN REPORT

Of course, InflaGene is your easiest tool, but it’s no substitute for a healthy lifestyle. www.MaxLifeSolution.net.

I recommend BOTH. This issue is far too important to take lightly.

People destined for disease often find excuses why they can’t make healthy food and lifestyle choices a priority. But healthy people navigate the same world empowered.

So improve your chances for a win. Waiting until the last minute just about kills your chance for healthy anti-inflammatory decisions.

Is Health & Longevity Worth 9¢ a Day to You?

People will go to the ends of the earth to cure what ails them. They will draw on every resource, spend every dime and will get totally consumed by trying to reverse their condition or disease.

Too often, it’s too late. So they suffer and die from things that could have cost them pennies to prevent.

One top preventative measure is taking a baby aspirin with your biggest meal. This simple 3¢ a day habit could slash your heart attack and stroke risk by up to 50%. If you’re not doing this, why aren’t you? Higher doses can cut your risk of breast, prostate and colon cancer by about 50% and esophageal cancer by 90%!

Then there’s the current rage – vitamin D3. Do you realize you can take an optimal daily dose of about 4,000 IU (or 100 mcg) for less than 7¢ a day… or just soak up 30 minutes of free sunshine a few days a week to lower your overall cancer risk by up to 60%?

According to one landmark study, some 600,000 cases of breast and colorectal cancers could be prevented each year if vitamin D levels among populations worldwide were increased by much less than this 4,000 IU a day. And that’s just counting the death toll for two types of cancer.

Earlier studies have shown that optimizing your vitamin D levels could help you to prevent at least 16 different types of cancer. And now we’re seeing more evidence that the type of cancer may not be all that important, because vitamin D appears to play a key role in the development of ALL types of cancer!

In fact, the majority of cancer deaths in the U.S. are from the most vitamin-D-sensitive cancers.

In addition to reducing your cancer risk, vitamin D keeps your mind sharp as you age, lowers your risk of osteoporosis and joint pain, helps protect you from heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease… and can reduce your risk of dying prematurely from ANY cause.

The seemingly limitless benefits of vitamin D are easier to fathom when you understand that it is actually the building block of a powerful hormone that influences your entire body. Receptors that respond to vitamin D have been found in almost every type of human cell, from your bones to your brain.

Maybe that’s why researchers are constantly finding more benefits. Vitamin D can boost your immune system, speed up healing and help regulate your blood pressure.

So are you getting enough of this “sunshine vitamin”? If not, why not?

What else are you missing? Do you take fish oil every day? If not, you may be raising your overall mortality risk by an astounding 30%.

Would you insist on crossing streets on red lights? I’ll bet you wouldn’t even consider it, at least not normally. That’s because you learned a long time ago that crossing on green lights lowers your risk of getting pancaked by a truck.

Now you know more life-saving habits.

These simple steps will either turn out to be the best investments you ever made if you adopt them… or will turn out being your biggest regrets if you don’t.

And one last thing: Do you have the single biggest killer under control? You may not even know, since it’s usually sneaky, insidious and silent. Learn more HERE.

Keep Dreaming

When your memories outnumber your dreams, your end is near. Keep dreaming.

“According to the actuarial tables used by insurance companies, if you are in your 30s now you probably have 50 years more to live. If you are in your 50s, you have only about 30 years more and if you are in your 60s your life expectancy is only about 10 years.

“These tables are based on averages, of course – not everybody dies precisely at the median age of 72.5 years – but these insurance tables are the best mathematical guesses about how long you will be with us. Right? Wrong.

“Recent advances in gerontology (the science of aging, not to be confused with geriatrics, the treatment of the aged) have led many sober and cautious scientists to believe that human lifespan can be doubled, tripled or even extended indefinitely in this generation.

“If these researchers are right, nobody can predict your life expectancy. All the traditional assumptions on which the actuarial tables rest are obsolete. You might live a thousand years or even longer.”

The words above were written in 1978 by Robert Anton Wilson, one of a number of advocates for engineered longevity who have since aged to death.

They looked at the pace of research in their era and saw themselves at the dawn of an age of biotechnology and radical life extension. They were wrong, and they were too early – which should make all of us at least a little uncomfortable. How are we any different? What can we point to that shows us to be in a better situation, actually at the dawn of the era of engineered longevity, rather than once again a generation too early?

The Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence (SENS) could have been proposed in the 1970s, in a very similar way to their present form, had some determined fellow existed with the keys to research vaults and a great deal of time to assemble all the necessary insights.

But in the 1970s, getting proto-SENS to work in mice would not have been a billion-dollar, ten year proposal as is presently the case. It would have required a far greater initiative, one to rival the space program or the formation of the NIH. In 2009 we live in an age of biotechnology and life science capabilities that is far, far removed from the rudiments of 1970.

Work that today can be achieved by a single postgrad in a few months for a few tens of thousands of dollars would have required entire dedicated laboratories, years of labor, and tens of millions of dollars in the 1970s.

“Today, we can point to such things as successful efforts in the laboratory to safely replace all damaged mitochondria in living animals, for example. We know that the present state of biotechnology is sufficient to make real progress in the repair of aging, and that this technology base is advancing much more rapidly than in the past.”

Thanks to Reason from FightAging.org for this information. Notice that the average lifespan in 1978 was only 72.5 years? Now it’s about 79. That’s an 8.9% increase, over two months a year, and we’re just getting started.

And that is based on life expectancy at birth. Once you dodge childhood and young adult risks, your expected life expectancy is much longer. The average 65 year old can expect to live to 65 or so.

Does Star Trek Give You a True Perspective?

Several years ago, I saw Star Trek at an IMAX theatre. The Saturday before, I celebrated my 125th birthday at my “Come as You Will Be” party. There were some similarities and lots of contrasts.

First, the movie was totally enjoyable but far from my favorite. Typically, it was full of warfare and destruction, crisis and triumph and aging and dying to make sure they sold a bunch of tickets.

In my opinion, if we get past some societal and technological thresholds, warfare will be obsolete. So will aging and death from natural causes. But these are hard concepts for the general public to grasp this early in the game, so the producers need to deliver thrilling storylines that people can relate to.

For example, Captain Pike was aging, and even had graying hair in the 23rd century. That is utterly ridiculous… especially gray hair. But without it, the story falls apart, there’s no succession, and people can’t relate to a non-aging Captain of the Enterprise or to a non-aging Spock.

We’re not quite ready for parents and children looking the same age… for Bones McCoy having absolutely perfect teeth… and for ordinary crewmembers with Terminator-like abilities.

When we jump from concepts to conclusions without gradually drawing people along with one small familiar idea linking to a bigger idea, and so on, until we arrive at the grand conclusion, we’ll lose 99% of our audience. It’s like a tiny tugboat pulling a huge ocean liner along with seemingly little effort. If you weren’t familiar with how it happens, you might close your mind to the possibility.

But once you understood the process, then it’s an easy leap for you. First, someone throws a small rope from the liner to someone on the tugboat. Attached to that rope is a larger rope. And then a larger one still and so on until they eventually have a large heavy cable connecting the vessels. From there on, it’s a simple matter of leverage.

You can’t jump from a small idea to a huge idea without gradually ramping up if you want to keep your audience.

If you were to travel back in time one or two centuries and tell people about the marvels of technology we take for granted today, they would think you are nuts, because they wouldn’t have points of references to link to. But once they grasped the concept of electricity, the light bulb becomes easier to accept… and so on until they could eventually understand miracles like the Internet, wireless communication and more.

It’s the same with aging and the future ability to completely reverse it.

Sure, it’s been a dream for thousands of years, and the desire is not hard to sell. The believability is though… even today with all our scientific marvels. But those scientific marvels are a perfect starting point for gradually getting people to understand exactly why the dream could finally be achievable in your lifetime.

As more people understand the rationale of how reversing aging could evolve, we’ll have greater intellectual and financial support to pull it off and less resistance to making it happen. So the way we present the possibilities of extreme longevity could impact your life.

BTW, the party was upbeat and positive. No one was killed and no worlds were destroyed. The attendees of the future (2068) did not age and did not get sick. Unlike Bones, they had perfect teeth, and unlike Captain Pike and Spock, they stayed young. Let’s make that future happen for us.

New Shocking Proof of Aging Damage

“Inflammation Chews Up Your Blood Vessels”

Hardly a week goes by without seeing the perils of chronic inflammation in major news media. The world has known for decades that this silent killer is the single biggest contributor to age related diseases, agony and premature death.

Yet the message falls on deaf ears… both inside and outside the medical community.

I’m so frustrated that I could scream!!!

We spent a fortune on developing what we are confident is the most effective natural solution to manage chronic inflammation on the planet. It’s one of the biggest no-brainer ways to preserve your life.

Most people who use it get amazing results. I’ll go as far as saying… “It is flat SAVING LIVES.”

But most don’t even consider using it until they feel a symptom. However, inflammation is a silent killer… so by then, it’s often TOO LATE.

Virtually every overweight person and most of the aging population are chronically inflamed. When they ignore it, their death certificates list causes of death as heart disease, stroke, cancer, etc.

Yet the real cause is me, and people like me, because we’re just not doing a good enough job to convince you to take simple, inexpensive ACTION.

I said it before… “The most important disaster-avoiding information I can give you for the time-being is HERE.

Here’s a report just in from Reason at FightAging.com:

A number of the most serious age-related conditions involve the progressive structural and functional decay of your blood vessels. A number of different forms of cellular and molecular damage conspire to clog, weaken, and stiffen blood vessels until one of these small but vital pieces of the body’s infrastructure fails catastrophically, and then a blockage or a bleed causes death or crippling injury in a matter of moments.

The older you are the more extensive the damage and the worse the odds, but poor lifestyle choices will generally put you in a poorer position than would otherwise be the case.

Chronic inflammation is a noteworthy contribution to many issues associated with aging, and it is one of the contributing causes that most of us have a fair level of control over throughout most of our lives. By taking basic good care of health matters, exercising, and eating a diet low enough in calories to stay slim… the average individual will have a lower level of inflammation as a result.

Inflammation is probably a primary mechanism in the link between excess fat tissue and raised risk of suffering from all of the common age-related disease. Visceral fat tissue is metabolically active in ways that promote inflammation, and the more of it you have the worse off you are.

You can’t escape chronic inflammation in aging entirely by staying thin and active, however, as significant raised inflammation levels also result from the characteristic age-related failure of the immune system.

As a result of the damage of aging, the immune system becomes both ineffective and constantly overactive at the same time.

Why exactly is chronic inflammation bad? What does it do under the hood? There are many distinct mechanisms, but here are some papers to illustrate a couple that involve your blood vessels. https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2014/08/chronic-inflammation-chews-up-your-blood-vessels.php

(The first article covers how Chronic inflammation is associated with age-related diseases such as cancer, neurodegenerative disorders, and cardiovascular disease. The second discusses how chronic inflammation contributes to aortic aneurysms. An aortic aneurysm (AA) is a silent but life-threatening disease that involves rupture.)

In effect you might think of inflammatory processes as gnawing away at the structural integrity of these important tissues, at an insignificant pace in youth, but accelerating over the years.

There is always repair taking place as well, of course, but ultimately the inflammation wins – or at least that will be the case until the research community is given enough support and funding to produce the means to reverse these mechanisms.

Reason’s commentary is one of tens of thousands of warnings.

Old enough to remember the Nixon administration’s “Whip Inflation Now” (WIN) campaign? Maybe I should call ours “Whip Inflammation Now.” See more.

How to Increase Your Odds of Everything Good by 10X

Not just increasing your odds for youthful longevity… but for EVERYTHING.

Most of my subscribers want more healthy years – way more. So they are proactive. Some others, like most of the world, react like they have gotten old by surprise… or they got diagnosed with something bad by surprise.

A common thread that we all share though is – we want MORE. We want answers. That’s what MaxLife is all about – digging up… or even creating answers. Our efforts over the past few years were on creating the answers that don’t exist yet. 90% of our efforts.

And I’m glad to report that we have created two amazing breakthroughs already. One will be revealed before the end of the year.

So how did we do what others didn’t, or couldn’t? The easy answer is “technology.” But it goes way deeper than that.

I took a page out of Dan Sullivan’s playbook and applied it to the complex task of how to add magnificent years to anyone’s life who will listen… in spite of themselves.

As it turns out, I care more about most people than they usually care about themselves. I’ll bet you’ve experienced that yourself. Haven’t you ever tried helping someone with easy to follow advice when you see them hurting themselves, even destroying themselves… only to have them ignore you?

It’s heartbreaking, isn’t it? Especially if they are loved ones.

Hardly anyone is willing to put forth the effort. Then, once disaster strikes, they’ll bulldoze you and anyone else in their path to find a cure if they have to.

Someday, it’ll be easy. The technologies we and other motivated individuals support will obsolete aging and diseases once and for all. But until that someday, we’ll have to be proactive if we want to live until then.

The page I mentioned out of Dan’s playbook? His 10X strategy.

It’s real simple – and counter to how almost everyone on the planet thinks.

When most of us forge plans, we start with the past. A problem that popped up before this very instant for example. Of course, since time does not stand still, everything but current thoughts took place in the past. But here’s where it gets interesting:

When we strategize on how to solve these problems, on how to plan for an outcome (everything from something as simple and mundane as tonight’s dinner, to the most important business or personal goal you want to achieve), what do you usually do? You draw on past experiences to build on.

But this is LIMITING and CONSTRAINING.

Sure, past experience is valuable if you learn from it, and you need to do that to keep improving. However, you will only improve incrementally… maybe by a factor of two or so… if you’re lucky. And it’s tedious.

Instead, what if you did this:

Project yourself into your future, and set a big, bodacious, and even frightening goal.

This forces you to stretch. It forces creativity.

It’s the way to improve your results by a factor of ten or so.

And do you want to know major side benefits?

1. It’s actually easier.
2. It energizes you instead of draining you.

In order to make something big happen in your life, start with your future to free up your present from your past as much as possible.

My goal – reverse aging by 2033. Not going to do it with backwards thinking.

Your outcome? Whatever you want. But for a start, how about staying youthful and well until rejuvenating technologies hit the scene?

3 Good Reasons to Live Longer

Last week I blogged about an absolutely amazing conference where I had the opportunity to speak about extreme longevity. I shared the stage with Arianna Huffington (see photo), Kevin Harrington, Daymond John and other luminaries.

Joe Polish pulled off the event of the year. More info at geniusnetwork.com.

Although the educational conference centered on entrepreneurship and marketing with speakers and attendees representing a wide variety of industries, the wellness field was the most heavily represented. Brian Kurtz who runs Boardroom, Inc is one example. Fitness queens such as Kathy Smith and JJ Virgin were there, and Dr. Daniel Amen presented, among others.

There was enough energy in that room to launch a rocket. Virtually everyone I met had such a zest for life that I just had to share it with you.

Don’t forget, this was a business/marketing conference. But most would be surprised at what makes a successful businessperson. It’s the same as what makes any person “successful.” Dan Sullivan, Strategic Coach founder builds “character” as well as teaching success strategies to his thousands of clients.

In fact, before you even think about success in business, Dan teaches you to be an accomplished friend, spouse, parent and basically a well-grounded well-integrated person. He coached thousands of entrepreneurs… more than anyone in the world.

So what did he talk about?

How to build successful relationships. How to reach and maintain your peak energy levels. How to grow your confidence. Why you should set 25 year goals… regardless of your age. How to appreciate and absolutely… LOVE life. He even revealed an easy way to multiply your desired outcomes (whatever they may be) by TEN TIMES.

And Dan was just one example. Dean Graziosi, who has been on TV every day for 13 years running, and who is the top current real estate investor guru, didn’t preach marketing or give any real estate tips. No. He talked about being a good husband and father.

In fact, these were common themes that were weaved throughout the conference. I didn’t meet one person there who did not have a specific purpose of life. They were long term thinkers. And just like you and me, they face their share of problems Like us, they experience heartbreaks.

But they bounce back. They see problems as opportunities. Most of them find something good in every pitfall. And what does this kind of mindset lead to?

Happiness. A reason and a strong will to live healthfully… and for a very looong time.

It’s not about the money. Most are prosperous. But money was a byproduct of their attitudes.

Joe Polish has been a Dan Sullivan student for about 17 years. Long ago, when he was telling me how amazing Dan’s program is, I asked him how much more income he made as a result. Joe does extremely well, but he looked at me like I was nuts. It wasn’t about earning more (although that happened too), it was all about self-development and self-worth.

As a subscriber, you are already future focused and motivated to improve. But go to 10xtalk.com for a wealth of the best free info on the planet to stick your future in overdrive.

When I met Joe, he had no interest in longevity pursuits. Now he’s an avid life extensionist. I think it may have something to do with how much he grew as a person.

Self-esteem is critical if you want to be happy in the long term. And without happiness, living long may not be appealing.

I’m here to tell you, self-esteem isn’t something that is handed to you. It’s earned. It’s something you LEARN to build. Anyone can do it. Enduring happiness is the reward. If you want to learn more, read The 6 Pillars of Self Esteem by Nathaniel Branden.

So here are your three good reasons to live longer – to max out your extreme longevity:

1. Open-ended Happiness
2. Open-ended Opportunities
3. Open-ended Love

More Life,
David Kekich

P.S. I’s never too late to start. One of the speakers, in his mid-80’s, often puts in 14 hour days because of his passion for what he does. He keeps looking forward… NOT BACK.

P.P.S. Go to Amazon and devour at least ONE of Dan Sullivan’s books. Don’t worry… although power packed… they are extremely reader friendly.☺ And don’t forget to check out 10xtalk.com and geniusnetwork.com.

The People Who Will Keep You From Aging

Once we solve aging, if you look far enough behind the curtain, you would be shocked to see what a diverse and surprising group of individuals had a hand in your “second chance.”

Last week, I attended and spoke at the most incredible conference I ever saw. There was a sold out overflow crowd of approx. 250 attendees. Actually, I should say “participants,” since it was an interactive experience.

No, it wasn’t a biotech conference. Not an anti-aging or medical conference either. Attendees were a group of high-powered marketing oriented entrepreneurs. You know… the kind of people who make the world go around. As you may know, nothing happens till someone sells something. (And ironically, salesmen get a bad rap.)

My good friend, Joe Polish, held the event in Newport Beach, CA, and people lined up with $10,000 checks in hand for the privilege of being there. The information was groundbreaking, inspiring… and worth every dime to the attendees. The consensus was that on average, the experience will translate to $250,000 extra profit to each attendee.

And that’s borne out by the 150 people who pay Joe $25,000 annually to meet three times a year to exchange ideas. Most original members have renewed for 6-7 years running.

Some of the speakers were: Kevin Harrington and Daymond John from Shark Tank; Peter Diamandis, X-Prize founder; Arianna Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post and Tim Ferris, author of “4 Hour Work Week.”

Surprising to me was how well represented the health and wellness industry was.

My topic of course… was extreme life extension.

More about this event in another blog, including why some of the lessons learned will make your longevity “satisfyingly happy.” For now, let’s take a look at how the people there will contribute to YOUR longevity.

The primary contribution is they (or others like them) will accelerate research.

They’re not researchers, so how is that possible? (I actually did spend time there with two biophysicists with a breakthrough stem cell technology.)

For a long time, I’ve been saying progress is held back more to the lack of marketing than from solid science. (But at http://maxlifesolution.com are breakthrough natural products that a new technology just developed… that actually defy aging.)

Some of these and other marketing genius entrepreneurs will apply their marketing skills, directly or indirectly, to raising the capital needed to push research forward to actually control aging. And some will contribute management expertise to new startups in this field as well.

The two most important ingredients to companies in general are innovation and marketing. In fact, all or nearly all revenue is spawned by those two. Tons of innovation now is screaming to be funded.

Here’s a link to one of the more fascinating, educational, productive… and FUN groups on the planet. It’s already changing the world.
