There are countless quotes from inspirational people demonstrating that becoming an overnight success seldom happens overnight. This was no different for today’s guest, high-performance coach, and biohacking expert, Augusto (Tuto) Marolla. Tuto embarked on a radical lifestyle change that to the outside eye, took just three months to implement. However, this shift was eight years in the making as he consistently experienced an engagement crisis over his 16-year corporate career. Join us today to find out about the catalyst for this life-changing shift, and the coaches he used to reach his potential. We dive into Tuto’s corporate experience and how he identified the misalignment between his values and what he was being asked to do in his professional life. We discuss how you can adjust your thinking around goals and success to benefit from the hedonic adaptation, and how you can escape the conditioning we are all subject to in today’s society. We hear personal anecdotes from Andrés about his latest dream and what he learned from it, and how both Andrés and Tuto worked in the dark to achieve success in the light. From Pavlov’s dog, to what Quantum entanglement is and how it affects your view of the outside world, you don’t want to miss this enlightening episode!
