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!

I'm late to this video. And when I first saw your videos, I'm going to be honest. I thought you were someone who was just pedalling sponsored products that they owned. And I have never been more wrong and sorry to judge so quickly in my life. I'm about as average Joe as you can get physically and I'm your stereotypical introvert. But your videos have made me want to better not only my physical appearance but also become stronger mentally. You're giving advice to people who need it like who needed it like you did. You sir, are quickly becoming a hero to guys who deserve to value themselves.

I’ve always like you and your videos but after this video I have a new way to look at you . I thought you spoke loudly cause you were pushing products and that’s just how salesman are but now I see it’s because you are happy and excited to be living your best life . And hardships have made you so passionate about life and you really do know what your talking about that you are really excited to be doing what you are meant to do in life . Keep making great content man and you will always have us here as people to support your passions. P.S I love you and your videos even more now seeing that this is the real you . Mad respect

Thanks Alpha for sharing this! I wanted to add that nothing changed me more than the three struggles I had to over come. 1. An empty stomach 2. An empty wallet and 3. An empty heart. To be honest my Wife has been the best thing to happen in my life. She’s my rock and I wouldn’t be where I am without her and my kids. I remind myself every day. Don’t fuck it up! You have a family that’s depending on you.

Ya that's dark but that's good to be teached by your own self As i am too going through the darkest time anyone can imagine as my own dad is trying to kill me and my mother as he's a Powerful government employee we can't even rip his single hair and apart from that my mom got so much depressed that it affected her in a way to state her mentally retarded as well as me a maniac..... Even though all this I am too surviving Even the girl whom I love has not contacted me from these 2 months because I've been frustrated all the time and she become annoyed but all I am doing is trusting over myself because it's all about ups and downs in life. Atleast you lived in a society where no one interfered but me ? After getting know my situation they tried to send me to jail. Tried to provoke so much so we can leave our home and just die And still I am living like I should because my goal is to provide all that necessities which we are lacking to my mom and luxuries too. And to be honest I 1st thought that you just suck but now I am glad that ya there are some guys like us too. The one with dark past and having brightest present and future. Bless you buddy

Respect bro! I came to your videos looking for ways to build self confidence. I've been losing weight on the keto diet and am going for the 2nd time to a resort in Cancun with the senorita lol. But I feel you man. I never got the chance to meet my dad, I've only seen a picture of him from an old online newspaper. And growing up, my mom dated a guy from 3rd grade til my senior year in highschool that just treated her like shit! I heard him yell at her to choose between me and him. So I leaned more towards my grandmother. I looked to be loved by the wrong person who later became the mother of my 3 children and just a flat out cheating bitch. By 30 years old I found myself alone again, my kids taken under her wing and kept away from me. Low on money, bad credit, going thru a stupid ridiculous divorce. And out of the blue this girl finds me. Helps me lift my spirits and see things another way. I've gotten my commercial licence to drive and am working now for 3x the amount I used to make before. With a beautiful woman that likes to travel and do stupid shit like me. We've gotten fat together and lost weight. Now headed to a topless resort 👀👀 again and working on easing up on the dad bod lmao. And the Tiege Henley is on the way

I know without a doubt that i am Not the most unfortunate person in the world but man sometimes when you're at your lowest and also have a condition that reminds you that u are small and nothing u do will change how small u are plus being in this sex driven world. I think i made myself the way i am to make women reject me before even talking to me. Let me explain. Im like 1 in a million dudes who has Microphallis so just starting off there is enough to make a "man" want to cease to exist in this world we live in. Adding to that im in a family where everybody has a family and or a spouse plus most of my family are above decent looking which is a knife to the gut then dealing with being 340 lbs all my doing. I know im doing something wrong but then i think if i do become "hot" then what ill have the bod but the package is the size of a fucking thumb. #justVenting
