How to Stop Being Realistic and Shoot for the Moon

Jesse Itzler is a self-proclaimed adrenaline-junkie taking on and pulling off unlikely challenges such as founding a private jet company, with no experience, after being told he couldn’t and running 100 miles in 24 hours. His fearlessness and boundless curiosity have not only made him a successful entrepreneur but a man likely to die with no regrets. The best-selling author of Living With A SEAL talks about maximizing life’s potential on this episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu.

“Your relationship with time is such a key component of your life because when you get caught in the routine, times goes so quickly and before you know it, you’re 60 or 70, your relevant years are done.”  [18:10]
