I had a chance to interview Tom on my radio show Get Notified, and I have pulled the good nuggets to share with my Richtopian readers.
Ryan Foland: Tom, why don’t you share a little history of your path? You’ve helped people become physically healthy and now you’re helping them become more mentally healthy, giving them amazing content with amazing guests on your new show. How did this all start for you? What’s the backdrop?
Tom Bilyeu: Well, the backstory begins probably about 17 years ago now, when I saw the movie The Matrix — it really gave me a new way to think about my life. Up until that point, I had the feeling that I could do more, I could be more, but I felt trapped, but I didn’t know by what. Watching that movie really made me realize it was my own mindset that was holding me back, and it’s become a perfect metaphor for me for human accomplishment and potential and the difference between having potential and actualizing that potential. That’s something that I talked to Michael Strahan about on Impact Theory, because he credits the movie The Matrix with impacting his football career, and he said it’s a big part of the reason that he got the record for the most sacks in a single season and how he went on to become a Hall of Fame NFL football player.
