Eric Paskel is a guy who hit rock bottom and had plenty of moments of crisis on the way down
He’s also a guy who’s studied philosophy daily, and has flown around the globe every year to study and learn from teachers and experts that understand the human condition.
You’d think these are two different guys. And in a way they are, as the transformation that Eric went through was pretty profound.
But the point is that Eric doesn’t just teach this stuff, he works hard to live it.
He had to work hard to become that way – and he’d be the first to tell you, he still has a long way to go, as we all do.
The point is that wherever you’re at in terms of crisis or set-backs, Eric’s been there, knows the way out, and wants to teach that way out to you for free.
And because Eric “field-tested” his teachings out first, you can be sure they’re practical and effective instead of woo-woo nonsense.Get It Now
