People are attempting to do their best to help contain the spread of the coronavirus, keep up with government shutdowns/sanctions, make sense of the protests, rioting , democrats vs republicans and all the other BS being jammed down society’s throat right now.

Americans feel unsafe , uncertain and have been led to believe we are destroying ourselves from within. These feelings lead to anxiety, depression and anger, which add fuel to fires that are already burning out of control.

The “TRUTH” About COVID-19 That They Don’t Want You to Know! With Dr. Saman Soleymani

Covid-19 has affected our world in ways nobody could have expected.

Every day more conflicting, erroneous news is being spread and with some states returning to a sense of normalcy while others are still on strict lockdown, how are we supposed to know what’s really going on?

More and more people are dying from the Corona Virus- or so they say…

The media has painted a grim picture that is affecting us negatively all as a society and it’s time the the truth is finally told!

Chris brings us a special treat in part one of this 2 part interview with his great friend Dr. Saman Soleymani. Dr. Saman is a medical physician, entrepreneur, medical director for Nutrition Solutions and community leader. In this episode he shares his extensive knowledge, insight and shines a bright light on exactly why the media continues to report false information about the COVID-19 death count & how we move forward from here!

The Pandemic We Should Really Be Worrying About!

Right now there’s another pandemic going on. It’s hidden in plain sight and this year alone will have a body count at least 300% greater than the Corona Virus.

We have taken great precautions in an attempt keep people safe from COVID-19 , but we have taken hardly any action to keep people safe from themselves

This pandemic has become so common and accepted in our society, that you would never even know it’s there. But it is…

And it’s killing more people every single year!

The worst part? The diseases and sickness brought on by the pandemic in question can actually be entirely avoided if we take the proper course of action.

In episode 50, Chris discusses the ability to think for ourselves, the pandemic going on that is way more concerning and deadly then COVID-19 and takes you on a short journey where you’ll observe the responsibilities of your life from an entirely different view point.

This episode will hit hard and although it may be inconvenient being confronted with the harsh truth, it’s only through the truth will we be set free.

No More

The majority of the world doesn’t truly take their success seriously but believe they do.

Overall laziness, excuses, complacency, toxic relationships, failure to accept responsibility and the lies we tell ourselves are among the many hazards that can threaten our success and destroy our chances of living up to our full potential.

When things get hard, we must never quit.

When we succeed, we must not become complacent.

When we lose, we must not cower and become timid.

If we want to succeed, we must apply the most amount of pressure at all times to everything we seek to conquer; including the weaker sh*ttier version of ourselves that needs to be destroyed forever.
In this episode, Chris calls us to action!

Be prepared for a fire to be ignited under your ass and within your soul! This episode serves as a “not so gentle” reminder to the world that the process of achieving greatness and living our best lives is NOT something that is done on a part time basis. It is something that needs to consume you and become part of who you are.

This episode is short, but hard hitting, to the point and will serve as a huge wake up call! Check it out now!
