BSL Insider Exclusive: Izzy from 30 Year Old Ninja joins us on the show today.
Does anyone even dream anymore? These days it’s so easy to get caught up in all the news about the horrible thing happening over here and that tragedy over there. We are inundated with bad news and bad media. And the topic that ends up running a lot of self-help articles is FEAR.
“How To Handle Your Fear”
“The 7 Steps To Feeling The Fear And Doing It Anyway”
“Fear Is A Good Thing”
“Just Do The Fear”
“Own Your Fear”
Yes, that sounds like a wonderful idea to me, to let fear become the theme of my Story. Not really. Dreams, on the other hand, are sexy. Having them feels sexy. Pursuing them makes you sexier of a person. So that leaves with living your dreams as the most sexiest thing you can do. Enter Ninja Izzy. He’s taken his life from one that is comfortable and ordinary to uncomfortable and extraordinary. He did the crazy thing and one day decided to pursue his dream of being a ninja. Literally. There’s something absolutely legitimate about following your dreams and being a ninja. Listen to the show to find out exactly how he did it, what steps he had to take mentally to embrace that path and how it all unfolded. This one is unique.
Our BSL Insider:
A former middle school teacher from Los Angeles who quit his job to pursue an absurd dream… To become a ninja. Back in 2009 I was in the midst of a Masters program, working my way up the leadership pipeline and pretty much had it made as far as resume bullet points go. There was one slight problem…
I hated my job and the direction of my life…
So I made a change, a massive change. Over the course of 4 years I quit my job, moved to Japan, and now I train extensively in martial arts. I’m 30 years old and I’m trying to become a ninja. It might sound crazy, absurd, strange… It doesn’t matter!
