Summary

What is the purpose of your life? Is it to be rich in things or experiences? At the end of the day, it is the amount of balance you have between the four pillars of the good life: health, wealth, love, and happiness that can give you the fulfilling life that you need. 

Listen to YouTube's Mike Vestil's origin story and how he became the person he is today and how you too can get the body you want, the income you want, the relationships you want, and ultimately, the happiness that eludes us all.

Warning: This book is an emotional roller coaster filled with obscene language. Read at your own risk.

Amazing Book! Must Read If You Want a Better Life!

Mike Vestil is wiser beyond his years. His story is nothing short of amazing! The thing that strikes me most about Mike after getting to know him personally a lot is he is absolutely Obsessed with Success and getting to the next version of himself.

His energy is contagious and like myself, he wants everyone around him to constantly be improving and leveling up.

Mike is a very smart and sharp entrepreneur who has come a long way in such a short time. Its really inspiring to have friends like Mike who inspire you. So Mike, if you're reading this... keep up the great work! This book is amazing man! Providing for, and making your family proud is what its all about! You have your WHY that makes you Cry and that is exactly what is needed for massive success.

If you're thinking about getting this book... just get it! If you want a better life this is a MUST READ!

A 22 year old tells you about life

He's 22 and knows it all. This is more of a autobiography than anything else. Which is weird because he's...pretty darn young. He tells us about his brutal life struggle growing up only middle class and having horrible challenges such as - gasp! - being made fun of because he was small for his age and had the sniffles. But our hero eventually overcomes the physical challenge by doing basic exercises and....well, growing up. And now he can eat whatever he wants and never gets fat! Imagine that, a thin Asian guy who never gets fat! Wow! It's all because of intermittent fasting and a few targeted exercises, he tells us. Ok then.

This book is full of generalizations, assumptions, and more than occasional unnecessary expletives (and I love expletives!) just to show you he's a cool dude who can hang.

I do applaud the guy for having great success running an online business and apparently making a mint at such a young age. But I wouldn't necessarily hang on every word of wisdom about life in general that he imparts on the reader. He does make it clear that he doesn't want others to see him as a guru but it seems like he's fishing for at least a liiiiitle bit of back-patting. Fair enough. He does give credit to folks like Tony Robbins and Tim Ferriss for setting him on the right path.

Overall, this is probably a good foundation book for a young reader (late teens, early 20s). I do like that he figured out that a 9-5 job isn't the way to riches while he was still young - and had the drive to do something about it.

As I write this, Mike lives the life I've always wanted but never knew how to achieve. I came to southeast Asia with no plan and never went back to the States and while out here after a couple years decided to become an entrepreneur. I'm thankful there's content out there like this so I can sort of reverse engineer their success. This has inspired me and given me different perspective which has actually lead me to Making some huge risks in my businesses that have been incredibly beneficial. Now it's just a matter of scaling and outsourcing. Then I can have the freedom to create more content involving traveling the world on my YouTube channel

Consume the content and follow the people that live the lives you're interested in living!

Audiobook of the year??

Wow... What a fun 3.5 hours this audiobook was. Mike is the man and this book is an awesome story about his life.

Oh and Steve Stansell murdered it as the narrator for Mike. Pure fire.
