A lot of people ask me, “Danny, what was the “thing” that changed you and got you motivated? How did you become independent and start thriving in life?”
Today I’m going to answer that question. Our story begins with a boat. And not just any boat. I'm talking about Oasis of The Seas, currently the one of the largest cruise ships in the world.
Back in 2009, I had just gotten out of high school and I moved to Denver, Colorado to attend College Living Experience. College was nice, but the thing I really wanted most at that time was to go on that cruise ship. I dreamed about it constantly.
However, there was a hitch: I had no money. So I spent the next few years of my life figuring out how to make enough money to go on that ship. I literally started out by googling “How to make money online”.
Unsurprisingly, that didn’t work very well.. But I still kept at it… then one day, I stumbled upon the world of “Personal Development”.
Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Jack Canfield, etc. These are some of the names that began my true journey.
I was intrigued by their ideas and so I dedicated myself to learning about psychology, personal growth, and success in life. Not because anyone was pushing me to, but because I had a strong, internal motivator that was personal to me (the cruise ship and a general desire to be happier).
And almost a decade later, here we are!
I’ve now been on 3 cruises since then (Including the sister of Oasis, Allure… basically the same boat). And more importantly, I’ve learned and grown leaps and bounds as a person.
