PODCAST – Life in Focus Episode 11 Zach Horvath – “Live a Great Story! Wisdom at Every Age.”

Live a great story cover

ELIVE a great storypisode 11 of Life in Focus features Zach Horvath. Zach is the co-founder of San Diego based company Live a Great Story.

If you follow this blog you will have come across Live a Great Story before, right here. I first saw their posters and fell in love with their messages last Fall, and was curious about the people behind them. Imagine my surprise when I found out that Zach not only worked in the same neighborhood as Life in Focus, but lived there too.

Live a Great Story is a clothing brand. It is also a philosophy its creators live by, and a movement. Zach and his team believe everyone has a story to tell, and that when you come across an inspiring one you should share it; so that’s exactly what they are doing. To me live a great story is the essence of the Life in Focus way, so I’ll collaborate with these guys and spread their message as much as I can. In this week’s interview we talk with Zach about his journey to building this company, what living a great story means to him, and how it all comes back to doing what’s right for you!

Take home:

  • Wisdom comes at any age. Just listen to what 25 year old Zach has to say about how to approach life and this becomes very clear.
  • If you follow your path authentically, you’ll have a great story to share.
  • Share your story with other to inspire and grow as a community.
  • You don’t have to approach your dreams in one motion, you can slowly approximate them, giving yourself the opportunity to try them on and overcome your fears.
  • With regards to moving forward in life “Whatever result happens you’re going to be a better person [for having lived through the experience…] You have to fail to get to move forward. Nobody succeeds without failing!”
  • It’s about asking yourself “How can I do it?” instead of “Why can’t I?”
You don’t need to know exactly what you want, to get where you need to be, but you do need to understand what is right for you. Sing up for the FREE  Insight Builder Email Series and start building that definition.
