When you get knocked down, you have two options – you can stay down, or you can get back up and keep going.
Adversity is always near and can surprise you when you least expect it. But if you keep on getting back up, you get stronger, smarter, and more resilient.
It’s time to get back on your feet and go get your success!
After surviving a series of bombings and near-death experiences, Sam Bakhtiar, an 11-year-old refugee, left Iran with his single mother.
They arrived in America with $500, one piece of luggage, and a very bright future.
He has been knocked down more times than he can remember, but every single time adversity knocked him off his feet, he stood up stronger.
Today, Sam is a loving husband and father, a doctor, CEO, author, world-class bodybuilder, and multi-millionaire entrepreneur. He runs a fitness franchising business, The Camp Transformation Center, and two different supplement and nutrition companies.
On this episode of the Rock Your Money, Rock Your Life podcast, Sam and I discuss what it was like growing up in Iran, how he is the definition of The American Dream, and why he loves working one on one with people and guiding them to their success.
