“I wish I could show you when you’re lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being.” – Hafiz

How often do you consciously think about the type of person you’d like to become?

What kind of qualities are you striving to develop? How would you want your friends to describe you?


What about magnetic!

Have you ever thought about what it takes to be a magnetic person? You know, the kind of person who walks into a room and everyone is drawn to them. I’m sure you can think of one or two people in your life who hold this quality. Where does it come from?


One time, my grandfather was pushing me on a swing and telling me about how we have to make conscious choices to decide what kind of person we want to be. He believes that in order to be magnetic, we have to be conscious of our thinking.

What did he mean by that?

Something that separates us from other animals on the planet is our ability to be conscious of our own thoughts. Not only are we conscious of them, but we can change, manipulate and mold our thoughts in order to change ourselves and our lives. Whether we like it or not, and whether we decide to take advantage of it or not, we have immense control in the type of person that we are going to become. It is all about what we are thinking now.

Not only do we have the ability to control our thoughts, but we can also decide how we are going to react to the people around us. Allow me to illustrate.

For example: When you walk into a room or warehouse where the lights haven’t been turned on for a while and you turn them on, what happens? Usually, one bulb will start to flicker and then the rest of the bulbs will begin to flicker and turn on as well.

They are “inspired”, if you will, by that first light that was able to turn on.

WE can be inspired in this way too! 

We can choose to be inspired by the other lights turning on around us. These other lights are people: people  that are showing up in the world as bigger and brighter versions of themselves, that are going the extra mile and changing the face of humanity. 

Or you and I can choose to be like christmas lights.

What happens when you string up the lights on a christmas tree and one of the bottom lights go out? All of the lights go out and the room is left in darkness.


This is the way humans tend to be. If everyone else is in the dark or choosing to put out their light, humans are apt to follow suit. We like to be comfortable. We don’t like to stand out.

This leaves us with a decision, you and I. What kind of people do we want to be?

We can either choose to be inspired by other people, or we can choose to be let down.


So… what I want you to do is make a conscious decision every single day to  make sure that your light is on. Everywhere you go. 

You’ve been given a great opportunity with your life experience. The fact that you’re here watching this video and reading this article probably means that your life is easier (in some ways) than 98% of the world’s.

We are here in South America right now, in Columbia as a matter of fact. Traveling to a lot of these impoverished areas is mind expanding. Did you know that the average person down here only makes about $300 US dollars each month? These circumstances will really open your mind to our world as a whole and what kinds of lives those around the globe are living. 

You and I, we have been given the opportunity to be a light in this world. That is no small thing.  

And I want you to know that it is okay to be a bright light! It’s okay to walk into the room and be more affluent, more effective, more awake and more alive than the other people in the room because guess what will happen? 

When you are living as your best self and when you are living from a very high vibration people are going to feel it; it’s impossible not to. And they are going to wake up, open their heart and want to become their best selves too.

It all starts with you.


Remember, we’re in this together!

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
