Podcast 533: John Vespasian: Teaching Us All How To Be Unbreakable
Today’s guest joining us on the Join Up Dots Steve Jobs inspired podcast is an author with a deep interest in what makes people tick.
What makes some individuals rise to greatness, whist others with much more chance of getting to the top fall by the wayside.
And through his seven books ranging from When Everything Fails, Try This, published in 2009 right through to 2015’s “Becoming Unbreakable: How Normal People Become Extraordinarily Self-Confident” he helps us push the boundaries on what is possible.
By tackling subjects such as “How did Buffalo Bill cope with his tremendous financial mistakes?” and “Which crucial success principle was discovered by the Ancient Roman poet Ovid?” their stories will show us all what to do when we are confronted with severe problems, even when everything seems lost.
As he says “This book aims at making you highly resistant to adversity. It’s principles will enable you to move on with your life despite difficulties, obstacles, and setbacks.”
So when did he decide that these were the kind of subjects that would bring him the most success, and did he stumble and fall like all of us before his first publication hit the shelves?
And with all this information he has gained, regarding dream building and successful pursuits is he more likely to achieve bigger dreams than even he thought possible?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots, with the one and only Mr John Vespasian
During the show we discussed such weighty subjects such as:
Why he wanted to write under a pseudonym, in order to be able to write more contentious content in the future.
Why he considers the author Henry Miller a genius in the literary world and how he developed his craft from very poor beginnings.
How so many people appear to be getting nowhere in their lives, but actually they are building up momentum that will break the dam of success.
Why John fundamentally disagrees with the motivational speech from Jim Carrey that we play isn’t everyday, and explains the reason why.
And why the story of Buffalo Bill was so inspiring to John, and how he was the most unbreakable of characters as we find out.
