If you want to be a complete success, then you’ve got to be a complete individual.
If you climb the corporate ladder but sacrifice your marriage along the way, then I argue you are not a success. If you’re the fittest athlete at the gym but your kids never get to see you, then you are not a success.
That’s a lesson Zach Even-Esh learned the hard way on his journey to becoming the Underground Strength Coach. On his way to growing multiple successful businesses Zach sacrificed everything from family life to his health before he got it right.
Strong mind. Strong body. Strong life. That’s the mission Zach teaches coaches and athletes every day in his home grown businesses.
I’m stoked to have Zach as a guest on the Life Stoked show today to learn more about the missteps in his past, the wisdom he gained, and the driving force behind it all.
Zach talks about:
– The importance of designing his ideal day intentionally
– How fitness training leads to wins in every area of life
– How his faltering health led him to change his entire life for the better
– How a bad work environment can impact every area of your life
– The importance of getting your priorities right

Rapid Fire Questions
One thing that was holding Zach back from breaking through to the next level.
Being a pessimist. Zach used to always find the negative in things.
When he learned to flip that around and found the “attitude of gratitude” then he was able to transform any obstacle into an opportunity.
One thing Zach gave up that allowed him to start making better progress.
Zach waged an all out war on the negative chatter in his head through reading and positive thinking.
One characteristic that separates Zach from the rest:
Zach’s way of thinking. He believes that anything he wants to do can be done.
“I know I’m not highly skilled in everything I want to do, but my attitude is powerful!”

Awaken the Giant Withinby Tony Robbins
Zach read two pages every single night of this book even if he didn’t feel like it. Often times two pages would turn into ten. Fast forward years later and this book changed Zach’s life!
