Ep 16: Living Beyond Mediocre with E. Benedict Valencia
Living Beyond Mediocre with Dr. Erwin Benedict Valencia
i remember seeing this guy on a beach of Playa Del Carmen. I remember seeing him and feeling the urge to go over and say hello. I was traveling solo. He seemed to be traveling solo…. But I soon talked myself out of it in order to feel safe and not put myself out there.
As I walked back to my hostel, I was surprised to see that the same guy inside. We started talking and I realized how friendly, energetic and sweet this dude was. He name was “E”.
I enjoyed chatting with E and learned about his passions and enthusiasm. He’s pretty cool.
He was so cool, that I asked him to do an episode with me on ‘Living Beyond Mediocre’. So what does that mean?
To me, it means getting up everyday and with intention, awareness, love and belief in yourself.
I love E’s story because he grew up in the Philippines where many people might dream about working in the NBA, but lack the belief in making it happen. E is now a role model for so many youth in the Philippines. By him stepping up and LIVING BEYOND MEDIOCRE – He is inspiring others to do the same. He’s inspiring to me and I’m happy to share his story and advice.
Have a listen….
