Alex Goad found himself at 25 years old, without a diploma, nor any real skills.
Depressed, confused, in debt and deeply unhappy, he knew that if he didn’t do something about it soon, this wouldn’t be a passing phase.
It would be his life.
Failure to sharpen any of his talents or abilities to the point where they would help him materialize his dreams.
In short, failure to truly engage with life and make the most of it. Always settling for mediocrity, or anything just one step above.

Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of people whose lives he’s been able to influence, and the hundreds (if not thousands) who’ve experienced life changing results AND written in to share those results.
What drives him most to this day is helping others avoid what almost became his tragic fate:
