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.

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
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.
