Consulting: http://www.aaronmarino.com i am alpha m: http://www.iamalpham.com Pete & Pedro: http://www.peteandpedro.com MENfluential Media: http://www.menfluential.com StyleCon: http://www.mensstylecon.com Tiege Hanley: http://www.Tiege.com In this video men's style, grooming, fitness and lifestyle expert, Aaron Marino of IAmAlphaM, AaronMarino, and Pete & Pedro is discussing his darkest days. He gets asked about motivation all the time, and he doesn't know how to answer because motivation has never been one of his issues. He knows how it feels to be broke, scared, and have hi hopes-and-dreams collapse around him. Alpha never grew up around much money. His family was on welfare, and his earliest childhood memory was seeing burglar in his house. His family managed but eventually got divorced. He had two step-dads thereafter. One he blocked out, and one was emotionally abusive. His mother gave him a fitness membership at 13 years old which changed everything for him. He may have had a crappy home life but was at 'home' at the gym. At 13 years old, he realized that he wanted to be a gym owner. He went to college after high school. He got a business degree in order to be a gym owner. He moved to Atlanta, GA to open his business and got a job at Bally's where he met a guy who wanted to open a nutrition store with him. It was successful, but the guy took advantage of Alpha. At that point in his life, Alpha was unable to stand up for himself. He ended up getting help from a counselor who helped him find his value. He stopped second guessing his worth. They opened another nutrition store, but Alpha was very unhappy. Plus the guy was selling drugs out of the back. Alpha knew it was time to go. so he left to become a trainer. During this time, he met a girl who he helped to lose weight. They decided to open a gym together. He worked a ton but he loved it because he was in his element. They didn't make much money, but he was happy. He was doing something that he wanted to do from a young age. They created a new fitness concept that they wanted to franchise. They needed money and got investors and a bank loan. They put together a new location but ran out of money really quickly. Legal issues arose as well, and ultimately, they decided to shut down. Alpha took a job driving a beer cart on the weekends just to make ends meet. It was a humbling experience. It was the middle of the winter, a 30 year old guy, driving a beer cart in freezing temps. He was so scared. He didn't have anything to fall back on... no plan B. He didn't know what to do. His world had collapsed, and he was financially ruined. He decided he'd do whatever it took to be successful. If it wasn't for that moment, being down THAT low, that he may not have ever seen the moment to do something amazing. So when you see Alpha get emotional, it's because of how thankful he truly is. If you are struggling or feeling hopeless, keep working! It gets better. It gets incredible! Alpha wouldn't change anything that has happened to him. He would do it again. He feels that those times built him and give him appreciation. It will get better if you press forward and persevere. Everyday, he gets up and tried not to mess it up. If he can make it, so you can you!

Thank you for this. I wish I had seen this when i was in that same dark place, I was lucky enough to survive what I did but this would have helped, and I'm glad it's there to help someone else now.

When you started crying it really hit home for me. That's exactly where I'm at, I'm losing my best friend rn. I know Itll get better but I dont see her being in my future and that's tough. I'm sure you wont see this but maybe someone else will and itll help them.

It's a bit amazing to look back on your life and see the things you overcame. I have a similar story, details, location, and business type a bit different, but similar. You put in the work and follow the confusing gut-wrenching path to success and you begin to achieve success, at whatever level. My favorite is people that recently meet me attribute my success to luck, and the ones who have known me the entire trip smirk at the idea that luck had anything to do with it. I appreciate the effort you put into the YouTube Channel and hope to watch your trajectory of success for many more years to come. Thank you, Alpha.

That was really good stuff Aaron. I I think that was one of your best videos and something every young man needs to hear. I'm 63 years old and I went through a similar period in my youth before I became a successful businessman. I don't know what your faith situation is but for me my faith has always been my strength.

Awesome video man. I definitely appreciate truth and reality and completely understand hardships. I'm happy for you dude. Thanks for the raw content. I needed this right now. This is a true man. I was born and raised to be cold and numb to emotion. Took years for me to figure out this is all ok. Thanks again.

Mistake with almost 5million subscribers on YouTube, thats one hell of a mistake!
random booster101 (9 days ago)
Well this is something that i think about time and time again. No matter what you do in this world whether you get rich off of drugs or help people change their lives you will never be satisfied with yourself. No amount of money can be enough for a person. Even if you help other people and give everything you have, at the end of the day even if you put your life on the line for what you love, the world will just chew you up and spit you out. But thanks for the video Aaron. Opening up about the times you finally realized that the world is cruel and unforgiving helps you reconcile with yourself and it helps you become stronger.

Did you just say "I was a mistake"? Bro, without youre videos and tipps I would be in a depressed hell. I cried with you bro.
ShadowMonster (10 days ago)
Bruh I actually cried w you no lie, my biological father or the the man who disgracefully has the power to call himself my father sounds a lot like your step father, I'm so sorry for everything that happened to you, i know the thing about dad because I'm currently literally living it. He's so emotionally abusive he makes me feel like I'm worth nothing, not even a piece of shit, he's done things I know no normal father would do, I clearly remember him ruining my 8th birthday party for no reason whatsoever, I've spoken to cousins and friends about this they've told me he's an asshole to them as well, I'm no longer talking with him I deleted his number and cut his email contact too

It's hard growing up without a father on your side to teach you all this alpha things. We're lucky to have you alpha m.
Jec Javier (18 days ago)
Whatever happen, as long as you have a good heart and you never give up, you'll eventually get what you deserve, things that you really want. Just keep sharing what's good, never give up and stay a good person to yourself, to others and even to those who do you wrong. God is good. All the time! Cheers Alpha M! You're a good man

Swanand Thakur (18 days ago)
Alpha you are an important part of many people's life. You are loved and appreciated for great work you are doing because small changes make greater impact. My first look to my emoloyee,my client, my fiance or some random person can make a greater impact on the perspective that drafts in their mind. Thanks for making me realised how much its important to look good, carry yourself good and feel good about yourself. The changes automatically boost your self-esteem and confidence whenever you look yourself in mirror 😎❤ Thanks buddy
