At age 26, my first-ever mentor and role model, Alvin Brown, was the ultimate representation of a man who had achieved true greatness in all areas of his life: family, business, health and fitness.  This live studio-recorded conversation with Alvin continues our Muscle Intelligence Podcast focus on the highest levels of human potential!

Over a decade after I met him, Alvin remains an exemplar of character, integrity, and wisdom.  Alvin had a huge positive influence on me at a time in my life where I felt lost, and was unsure of even the first steps to take toward change.

Alvin and I cover a lot of ground in this episode on what excellence and happiness truly mean, as well the pillars of mind-body-soul health!  If you’re striving for greatness in your own life, listen to gain wisdom about:

  • The difference between perception and reality.
  • How to create space between stimulus and response.
  • Vulnerability, surrender, and letting go of control.
  • Intentionally surrounding yourself with great people.
  • What it takes to change your perception.

Alvin is the CEO and founder of The Centre for Healing and Peak Performance in Ontario, Canada.  Alvin is a certified Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Practitioner, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, and holds a Diploma of Osteopathic Manual Practice.  Alvin and The Centre for Healing and Peak Performance emphasize health and excellence for the whole person — mind, body, and soul.
