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!

Because of the videos you put out, I was able to get out of a pretty emotionally abusive relationship that lasted 3 years. It was hard to move on. But because of these videos I was able to, and make start making a change for myself. I discovered your channel on the first of this year and since then I've been having success after success. I got a job, I go to a gym for martial arts, I picked up an instrument, and I feel better about myself than I ever did. I have more confidence than I ever did before and my life is a lot better. I'm happy I discovered this channel when I did, because all my friends were too busy with their own thing. I know I'm fairly young, I'm only 18, but I still felt really bad about myself and this channel helped give me the push I needed to get on my feet for the first time and really pursue something bigger than myself.

I wasn’t planned either. When I was 5 my POS father took off after a fight with my mother and I never seen him again. My mother raised me the best she could, went to college, and worked full time so we wouldn’t struggle. I felt so lonely growing up. When I played football and was in a game I would look back at the bleachers and only see everyone else’s family. Not mine. My mother was grinding to put food on the table. I felt sad but I understood. So I would be strong like her. My mother didn’t remarry until I was 16. I didn’t know she was dating my stepdad until I was 15. He is still my stepdad I’m 23 now. I love him. They have been happily married since and he makes her happy. He taught me how to be a man. I understand how you feel Alpha. Life is pretty ruthless. You can either take the hit and stay down. Or you can get back up and keep walking forward.

You have missed Linda for 10 years, and you used that "missing energy" to create something fantastic. I needed to hear this because I miss a girl best friend too, since 2 years now and I think I know now that I used that energi to build myself. I drive a Mercedes C63 today :D

I don’t understand how anyone can put a ‘thumbs down’ to someone spilling his guts out, putting his ‘alpha’ image on the line and reliving some of his darkest times to let us all know to never give up and to believe in ourselves. People are [email protected]’n cruel man! No wonder why you are so successful brother. You have style. You have class. You are an inspiration. Most importantly you look happy. I am so happy for you. You deserve it brother (your success). Well done. I applaud you!

It takes more strength to express how you feel then to hold those emotions back. The fact that your doing that just shows that your a real man, a real Alpha. Thank you so much for sharing this. The strongest man is the one who expresses his emotions honestly to others and not being afraid of what others might think of him.

Thanks Needed it I’m just changing strongly this one keeps me on track, after a bad break up, with depression and obesity. Lost my house to spouse, loosing $$, just hanging on to being the best now and fighting to shed 100 pounds to be in shape. And this rock bottom is the best thing that has happened to me. Wake up early every morning walking eating right taking care of myself. And humbly great full to know the best version of myself is just waking up to great things.
