Brian Vaszily is also bestselling author, widely renowned and respected life coach, business coach and speaker, and a positive change advocate who has been featured extensively in the media, including ABC, NBC, and Fox News.
He leads seminars and workshops that have positively transformed the lives of thousands. His works include the international bestselling audio learning program, The 9 Intense Experiences that 4-time New York Times bestselling author and TV personality Dr. Mark Hyman called "a powerful and highly engaging program”; the #1 selling life story book, The 400 Biggest Questions to Easily Capture Anyone's Life Story; and the award-winning and widely loved novella, Beyond Stone and Steel (see Very-Clever.com), amongst many other works.
Brian Vaszily's life mission is to enable people to achieve their greatest goals and far greater happiness while overcoming the traps - often well-hidden - that hamper that success.
Brian Vaszily believes the biggest issue facing the world today is a growing sense of individual insignificance and disconnect from self-awareness, true purpose, empathy, joy and wonder.
Despite endless opportunities for "intense experiences" -- engaging and transformational experiences of the mind, body and spirit -- people are settling for a success-sabotaging, health-depleting and happiness-numbing pattern of mediocre experiences.
And of course, if people are primarily allowing mediocrity in, then mediocrity is primarily what they will get out, including anxiety, depression, feeling overwhelmed, feeling insignificant and all the rest. People are settling for existing versus really LIVING ... but that will change.
To achieve his life mission of helping people discover a sense of deep purpose, wonder and happiness, and achieve their greatest goals and success, Brian Vaszily founded and leads the "home base" of all of his work, IntenseExperiences.com.
This includes the free and popular "Live Deeper" newsletter that provides a wide variety of intense experiences of the mind, body and spirit through which readers can greatly improve their lives.
As noted in his popular manifesto on how to achieve success that several well-known musicians are making into a song, Brian Vaszily believes in being here now and always moving forward, and that the past is good for two things -- the happy memories and the lessons it provides. Still, those who are inspired and transformed by his work often and understandably ask about his past.
"When someone tells me something is impossible, all I hear is that he or she in particular cannot do it.
If it can be thought, it can be done."

Like you, Brian has experienced many beautiful joys and successes in life, he has a wonderful network of friends and family including the best son, mother, grandmother and sister a man could ever hope for, and he is grateful for it all.
Perhaps also like you, he has also met many major challenges in his life and grown from them. For example, he grew up in a rougher Chicago neighborhood where he was mugged and beat up multiple times, had to learn to defend himself physically, and where several of his young friends were killed in gangs. Beginning around the age of nine for Brian, his father went through a long period of being a severe alcoholic and being abusive to Brian and his family; Brian's father was a funny and brilliant man who spoke fourteen languages and demonstrated deep love and kindness many times, but he became a man angry at himself who never properly dealt with serious tragedies in his life such as the death of another of his sons, Brian's half-brother. Brian's father died after a horribly difficult and decade-long battle against disease, when Brian was twenty. At that same age, twenty, Brian became a father and husband.
The next two decades of Brian's life provided serious challenges to say the least, including living on food stamps and being on welfare for a period, losing a good friend in college in a car accident, almost losing a best friend to cancer, going through a difficult divorce, going through bankruptcy, losing two uncles to disease, going through another difficult divorce, and more.
