Construct Your Life With Austin Linney

Nov 20, 2023


Ready to awaken the hero within you? Join me as I delve into an inspiring conversation with Brian Johnson, the visionary founder and CEO of Heroic Public Benefit Corporation. Brian, passionate about blending ancient wisdom with modern science, takes us on a journey through his transformative book, Activate Your Heroic Potential. This riveting volume, composed of 451 micro-chapters of life-altering concepts, is the result of Brian’s own struggles, including the haunting legacy of alcoholism in his family and his personal battle with suicidal thoughts.

Our chat takes a reflective turn as we explore the significance of mastering the basics for success. Drawing inspiration from UCLA coach John Whitton, who clinched 10 championship wins in 12 years, we delve into the necessity of understanding the game you're playing and ensuring you're heading in the right direction. We amplify this theme with an awe-inspiring story of a fearless 15-year-old who swam across the ocean, demonstrating how our unique talents can help us conquer our most daunting fears.

As we move towards the finale of our conversation, we explore Brian’s exciting journey in creating the Heroic Public Benefit Corporation. With an audacious mission to facilitate a world where 51% of humanity is flourishing by 2051, Brian enlightens us about the construction of a scientifically-proven app designed to transform lives. An alternative to Facebook, this platform emphasizes the profound influence of community and connection. By the end of this conversation, you'll be left feeling empowered, ready to unlock your heroic potential, and eager to sculpt your dream life while positively impacting the world around you. Immerse yourself in this opportunity to redefine what is possible for you and for humanity.
