When I clicked "book flight" and got the confirmation, it felt as if my heart fell not only to my stomach, but right out of my body in general. I recall the moment when my mother was walking across the living room and I said, "hey, so I'm going to Australia." She said nothing but... Continue Reading →

Interviewee #026 – Moustafa Sano – The Marathon Man!
I brought Moustafo on a long time ago, and here I am bringing him on again because there was a particular pain threshold he passed that I'm very captivated by. Being able to overcome the amount of pain, a rain storm, fatigue and other things is just AMAZING. Reminds me of David Goggins, so here... Continue Reading →
Interviewee #15 – Moustafa Sano On Fitness, Learning Five Languages, & Fitting In
It was an afternoon when I received a few video messages in my Instagram inbox. Here was a guy that I've never met before sending me videos.

Spartan Beast Malaysia = Cancelled; Now What? Spartan Beast Australia!
I went from booking a ticket, thinking that my Spartan Beast in Malaysia was on a Saturday, to cancelling a plane ticket and realizing that plane tickets on other days were at extortionate prices. YIKES! What a disaster. What seemed like a sure Spartan Beast and trifecta claiming weekend turned into a nightmare whereas I... Continue Reading →
Traveling Pod: Episode 6 – From Hell To Heaven!
Double check-ins, as mentioned before (at Don Meung International in Bangkok, Thailand), had some stereotypical treatment to them. Yeah, already mentioned. Then there was the delay turned almost mid-air collision with not one, but two other aircrafts. I saw it with my own eyes. We were ascending and we flew directly under a Singapore Airlines...

Ramble of Positivity: Episode XXVI – Number Four + A Resounding Offer
Here I am in the middle of the check-in line, grateful as hell (although the following events will lead to a different podcast on self-control) because this is a record forth country this year alone. Not only that, but an offer -- here's the story. Back in 2016, I taught at a company in an... Continue Reading →
Put A “Stop Loss” Order On Your Worries: Visa Madness Turned Multiple Trips
I covered this particular podcast a long time ago, but this has transformed COMPLETELY the way I view situations. Putting a stop-loss on something can range from a unreliable friend that shows up late to meals, to dealing with mundane tasks. If there's something that's bugging you, put a stop-loss on it, figure it out within... Continue Reading →
Emergency Vacation: Singapore!
Yes, you read it right! Because of ridiculous rules at immigration and me just simply not wanting to inject anymore of my hard-earned money into this economy, I decided to take (literally) a one-day trip to Singapore. As you probably already know, I've had several layovers in Singapore because I had to switch to a... Continue Reading →
Ramble of Positivity: 5th Anniversary In Thailand
It's been an unbelievable 5 years. Wow, how can I even put it into context. I will try highlighting this through pictures. First Three Years You understand where my focus was, right? 2013-2015 were the rough years with lots of racial influences, advertisements, and me focusing on "what I didn't want." I had a woman...
