hero image manifesting

You know those people who light up a room the moment they walk in the door? 

That’s my friend Jesse Itzler. 

This guy is so awesome! He only eats fruit until noon, loves Run-D.M.C., and enjoys living life out of the box. Actually, he doesn’t even have a box. Jesse is a serial entrepreneur, New York Times bestselling author of Living With a SEAL and the only guy I know who runs 100 miles for fun. Though his self-proclaimed greatest accomplishment is super dad. 

I met Jesse in my early 20s through a mutual friend (a funny story we share on the pod). His first impression certainly made an impact—and you’ll see why. 

What I love most about Jesse, and why I knew I had to have him on Dear Gabby, is that he’s an extreme optimist. His optimism is the key to his successes personally and professionally. “I’m not going to look at the tough stuff, but I’m going to see the opportunity in all of it,” says Jesse. 

In this episode, we talked about everything from family to diet to channeling our grandmothers. But the one thing that we most share in common is our secret superpower for success: optimism! 

if you know what you want in life, you can manifest anything you put your mind to

Jesse is a living example of that.
