Welcome to Life Hacking Machine. I’m John Ontal (more about me below). This is my blog for YOU. It is focused on significant, highly impactful life hacks; the ones that can help you do amazing things you never thought possible, how to CRUSH life’s challenges, and ultimately “Unleash Your Best Life”.
What is a “Life Hacking” + “Machine”? Short answer,”YOU and I”. For a detailed explanation click here.
Why did Life Hacking Machine come about, alive, or UNLEASHED?
If I may… let me get personal with you for a moment…
I ran into to some serious “life roadblocks” – mentally and physically. I was stuck. I came to a crossroad in my life… a major turning point. I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t making the money I wanted. I felt trapped, as if my wheels were spinning but I wasn’t getting anywhere.
I honestly didn’t know where my life was headed and that was a very low point for me. I felt like I was literally slamming my head into a brick wall getting ZERO results.
You know the definition of insanity right? Doing the same thing over and over again expecting the same result. That was me! That was my life.
And another thing… I had so many interests I wasn’t able to pursue because I was trading hours for dollars and quite frankly I didn’t have enough hours in the day.
Reality started to set in and it wasn’t pretty…
I could either continue to do what I had always done and get the same results I had always gotten or do something drastically different to get life changing results. What will you do?
The picture of my life became crystal clear. If I took a snapshot of my life and made NO changes, my life would look exactly the same in 5 years. That is a BIG painful pill to swallow.
I also came to the realization that I was ultimately responsible for my life and the choices I made. I owed it to myself and those I cared about to make things happen.
Can you relate?
So, I made new “life changing” choices and haven’t looked back.
It’s been MAGICAL.
I went on a mission to become more productive, more efficient, and get more output from my input. I eliminated or minimized the things in my life that were not allowing me to enjoy the freedom I wanted so badly.
This was hard at first. No one said it would be easy. However, I believe pain, struggle, and failure are often necessary steps for success to happen, but make the success much, much sweeter.
And guess what? Success came.
During this process, I realized that I wasn’t alone, many people just like you were feeling similar thoughts and had questions like:
-Is this all there is to life?
-Why is my life the way it is?
-How do I really live the life I desire?
-How do I live a more fulfilled life?
-Am I really supposed to postpone what I want to do in life until I retire?
-Will I retire at all?
-Will I have the relationships I want?
-Will I be able to pursue the things in life I really want to do?
-Will I be financially free?
-How can I get to where I want to be in life faster?
So I made a “life resolution” that changed my life. I said to heck with my past and decided to become a machine, a “Life Hacking Machine”, to live my best life right now. I knew something inside me needed to come out so I decided to do something about it.
My MISSION is to help as many motivated people as I can live the life they desire NOW.
And there you have it… LifeHackingMachine.com was born #BOOM #POW
Let’s get very REAL for a moment…
You only get one shot at life so you have to go for it… I mean really GO FOR IT. YOU only have so much time to do everything YOU want. If you are going to fail at something you might as well fail at something you really love doing right?
You don’t want to wait in line with everyone else waiting for YOUR best life to happen do you? If you are waiting for success to “just happen”, I can tell you with ABSOLUTE certainty that it’s not going to “just happen”.
Instead, learn from my successes and failures so you can bypass the waiting line. The line for those waiting for success to happen is way too long and if you continue to wait your life will look the same as it does right now in 5 years…except you will be 5 years older.
So instead, I’m giving you the VIP access so you can jump in front of the waiting line and you can “Unleash Your Best Life” faster than you ever dreamed possible.
Listen to this next part very closely…
“Good things may come to those who wait, but AMAZING things come to those who take action, recognize opportunities, and constantly move toward their goals.” – John Ontal
And another thing….
If I would have had a resource like this blog and had someone share with me the things I am sharing with you here, I would have achieved success and my ideal life much faster.
I STRONGLY believe that YOU and I have so much potential in us that we need to act on. There is a huge difference between knowing how to do something and actually doing it.
Ever get a light bulb moment??
When you have a “light bulb moment”, refer to this blog, Life Hacking Machine, as a resource and as the conduit to spark YOU to take “massive action”. I believe YOU have special gifts inside you just waiting to come out. YOU want to do AMAZING THINGS right? Stop waiting and stop postponing the life you deserve. I want to help YOU make EPIC things happen.
You’ve got to “Unleash Your Best Life” and I want to help. Let’s make it happen!
