Is Being Obsessed Bad?

The people who are the best at what they do or change the world are obsessed.

For example…

Charles Darwin was obsessed with proving evolution (and going against the church).

Amelia Earhart was obsessed with becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic.

Martin Luther King Jr was obsessed with equal rights for everyone.

Steve Jobs was obsessed with creating sleek, compact computers, laptops, and smartphones.

I’m obsessed with helping people live healthier and happier lives.

The people we look up to and idolize today were obsessed with accomplishing their “life’s task”.

Too many people today view obsession as a bad thing. 

To outsiders, obsession looks sickening. Because of this, they’re labeled with “disorders” like Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

I say this because I’ve been diagnosed with OCD.

When I share this with people, their eyes look at me with sympathy. They look at me with eyes that say, “You poor thing.” I still don’t know why they feel that way.

To me, my OCD has been my superpower, and it allows me to pay massive attention to detail.

This then allows me to create a one-of-a-kind experience for my Fit Body Boot Camp customers. I pay close attention to how the weights are set up, the color scheme, and customer experience from the start of the workout to the end.

This may seem like too much to people who aren’t obsessed, but Disneyland does the same thing.

Disneyland has people fly from all corners of the world to get the “Disney Experience”.

Fit Body Boot Camp is an international franchise with locations across the globe.

Do you see the pattern?

I share all this with you because I want to let you know that it’s okay to be obsessed.

The most successful people in history were obsessed too.

If there’s something you’re obsessed with accomplishing, don’t stop.

PS. Every young boy wants to know deep down inside if he has what it takes to be a man. It’s been my obsession as a father to guide, mentor and lead young men into manhood. 

That’s why I created the Squire Program – a 15 rite of passage experience for boys 12-16 years old and their fathers.

Moms! If your Son does not have a father in his life or a male figure to take him through the Squire program, please contact me and I will have a mentor stand in and take your son through the program.
