One word that comes to mind when I read Julien Smith is BADASS. The man is not afraid to say what he thinks. Many of the thoughts that he chooses to share on his blog are as entertaining and enjoyable to read as they are practical and motivating. Julien Smith is not bashful about writing what he believes in, and his writing style strikes me as similar to a real-world Tyler Durden.
Here are some of the things that Julien shared in our interview:
*Julien�s experience with �Media-Hopping�, Podcasting, and running Online Communities
*Julien�s belief about how art/writing should be related to music
*Why you can learn to be Artistic the same way you can learn to Swim
*Why Julien fasts for 16 hours a day, and the psychological benefits of fasting
*Why �You have to learn to enjoy hunger� and How to minimize your suffering (One of the keys to well-being)
*The Only way to Be a Strong/Hard Person (I absolutely love this idea)
*How our Environment Shapes Us, and The Case for Taking Control of your Environment
*How Our Negative Experiences Reinforce Our Personality
*Julien�s Philosophy on Scars: �The more markings that you have on your body, the stronger you end up feeling�
*Why Julien believes that we are capable of withstanding a lot more than we think we can
*And much more!
You can find Julien at his blog, In Over Your Head. You can get his latest book absolutely free on Amazon: The Flinch. I loved it. Every time I read a few pages of his book, I take action on some fear that I am experiencing. There is something about Julien�s sharp and edgy yet motivating writing style that makes you WANT to follow his words.
