“The intrinsic value of life”

“The only requisite for success, happiness and fulfillment is learning as I go. ” - Tadayoshi Inoue

By no means do I corner the market on knowledge or wisdom. But I have deeply strived my whole life to learn, become better than I was yesterday, and become more enlightened along the way on a variety of topics. 

When I reflect today on what I have learned there is a vast array of subjects and topics that I have acquired quite a bit of wisdom and knowledge on. Not complete knowledge there is still so much to learn. But I have been successful at collecting bits and pieces of valuable information and experiences. 

But the secret to making wisdom valuable is only when I share what I have learned. What else am I here for? As a matter of fact, any wisdom that I may have acquired along my journey of life is useless unless I pass it on. The whole point of each of us walking out own unique journey is to learn and pass what we have learned on the next. 

So I pass to my daughter, I pass to my connections. And I pass to those who ask for my assistance. I think this is why I love coaching so much. I get to pass on my experiences. I have collected 52 years of knowledge and experience in bodybuilding, nutrition, fitness, cognitive science and ethics. All of which I find immense value in sharing. 

If I were to simplify what is most important in life. Its not having the physique that we want. Its not accumulating the knowledge or money or even friends. It is looking deep inside constantly and doing your best to know your own self deeply. Not what you do or your dreams. But who you really are at a fundamental level. 

This unique knowledge of myself has elevated me in my work and in my life to be able to feel the joy of my being. To extract the joy of my experiences and to deeply appreciate myself and those around me on a level that doesn’t need a reason or an excuse. My understanding of myself allows me to love without conditions and to appreciate my life in all circumstances. 

To me this is more important than gold, or money or influence or power or even longevity. Knowing the value of true self is knowing the value of others too. Even if I don’t like what they are doing. 

Picture: My daughter’s 13th birthday dinner, She is such a lady now. Wow I appreciate who she is becoming. I love you so much Kiana! You have given me such purpose in this life. Thank you.
