008: John Joseph: Stop, think, take control of yourself and change your life with a Positive Mental Attitude.
In this episode of the Adelaide Real Podcast - A guide to getting your fit together Paul speaks with legendary hard core Punk rock icon John Joseph about his journey out of a dysfunctional and abusive childhood to world wide recognition. Along his life journey to date John has been in a foster home, abused, incarcerated, stabbed, shot, the Navy, sold drugs, a drug addict, on the run from the feds, a Hare-Krishna munk, lead singer and writer with the hard core punk rock band the Cro-Mags, an Author, a vegan and Ironman athlete. He's survived it all!
Inside the tough exterior is a man with a heart of gold, amazing really considering the life he has lived. He raises money for charitable causes when competing in Ironman events, he gives his time and lends his experience to youths in his community that may learn from his mistakes. He educates people, through his videos on youtube and books, Evolution of a Cro-Magnon and Meat is for Pussies, of the benefits of a vegan diet. He gives back and that's so impressive and a wonderful measure of a man that could have easily gone in a destructive direction and said screw you to society.
If you are looking for someone who shows that massive change is within you then listen to John Joseph's story and be inspired that anything is possible.
