His main message is it takes years to build trust, but that if you continually improve, you'll eventually be seen as an overnight success.
When he began, he was broke and unemployed.
He put years of hard work (and major faith!) into The Daily Love because he knew it was his calling, even when people close to him doubted it and bugged him to get a normal job. Seven years later, thedailylove.com is insanely popular for being a daily dose of upbeat inspiration and bite-sized quotes.
"I do not want to die with regret... I want to know I gave it my all."
Slowly he built himself into a brand that is revered by the Huffington Post and Oprah.
In this video, he tells his story.
“If you are bothered by every rub, how will you ever be polished?” ~Rumi
“You were born with potential
You were born with goodness and trust
You were born with ideals and dreams
You were born with greatness
You were born with wings
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t
You have wings
Learn to use them and fly!”
~Rumi, a 13th Century Sufi Mystic
Create healthy habits.
“Life always gives us exactly the teacher we need at every moment.
This includes every mosquito, every misfortune, every red light, every traffic jam, every obnoxious supervisor (or employee), every illness, every loss, every moment of joy or depression, every addiction, every piece of garbage, every breath.
Every moment is the guru.”
