When have you been starstruck. I was at an event with oprah and and went to one of our speaking gigs. It was called like super soul sessions and i remember i went back stage where there is maybe a hundred influencers. There's a lot of celebrities is back. There and oprah walked like this close to me. She walked past me and she was talking to. Everyone and i didn't want to go up to say hi to her because i don't want to be that person that goes and introduce myself i was one of the introduced and so i just kind of watched her walk by and i was like oh. It's like an energy to her. It was like an oral is like that's oprah you. You know so that was cool. That's awesome all right forty. What is your ultimate goal in life. I want to be really healthy for long tom on for as long as i live wanna be very healthy physically pain-free emotionally mentally pain-free think that's is becoming more and more important to me. Longevity can't buy more time. I think achievements will come by being consistent and showing up adding value like cool. Things are gonna happen. Achievement success money like all those things are going to happen over time but having inner peace he's having healthy body healthy mind that is something that a lot of people struggle with that we take for granted when we have it so i really want to sustain that for as long as long as i can. That's my biggest goal because by having clear energy and healthy energy will allow me to create more value in the world and i appreciate so much so it's great love that all right halfway point halfway point forty one. What are you scared of losing. I'm scared of losing my health. If that was not fun i'm seeing my friend amy purdy posting a lot right now and instagram about she's got some like disease disease or health challenge that the doctors can't figure out what it is and so she's just been like kind of sick and going from doctor doctor for months wants and she's already lost her legs and now she's losing her health and she's just like scared because he doesn't know how to fix. It doesn't matter like how clean you eat how much you sleep like she just doesn't want to fix it and that'd be scared to lose that 'cause i'm just really it makes me grateful for my health so keeping in our thoughts and prayers yeah of course forty two what was the biggest moment for you and your career in the new york times bestseller this it was a big moment just because it was a dream of mine ten years prior say that was a big moment huge and we celebrated that big getting on ellen. I think that was a cool moment as well because it was like a ten year vision coming full circle hitting one hundred million dollars in the podcast. That was another moment right forty three. What what is the most awkward situation you have ever been in awkward. I'm thinking of like embarrassing moments. Just like an awkward situation i was in was flying the blue angels last year being in this little bubble that i i couldn't move in a little bubble. You know however many thousand feet up in the air throwing up within the first three minutes and being in the plane for forty five more minutes nauseous nauseous wanting to pass out. There is the most awkward and uncomfortable situation but i tried to enjoy the moment only because you view i did not want to do this. I turned down and then you're like this is amazed that was my thing. I wanted to be a pilot now. You're talking about wanting to potentially be in the military seals razor. You've been the great wall. I wanted to be a pilot lease. It can be perfect. I know i know i specifically wanted to be a fighter pilot. I didn't want to fly cargo. Jets cargo planes. It'd been amazing.."
