Today, we are interviewing Christopher Roberts, an influencer who has developed an undying passion for inspiring people and developing their self-belief.
How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey?
I have been out of home since 14, and I never finished year 10 education. I suffered from chronic panic disorder. In 2018, I was broke and overweight and lived with anxiety and was a single father to a 2-year-old boy Dantae. Until I stumbled upon some really life-changing insights and concepts I got from books, I started reading.
Today I have a few companies, and I've made over 3.5 million dollars in sales. I've had more than 35 employees. And now I've nearly finished writing a book.
My goal was to set up passive income so I can focus on changing people's lives, as I've ascended from complete mediocrity. Now my mission is to bring as many people with me as I can. And there is nothing that I would let stop me from this mission I am pursuing.
Who are your role models?
My role models are definitely Jim Rohn, Anthony Robbins, Les Brown, Tom Bilyeu.
What inspires you?
Stories of people's adversities and how they have overcome them.
Please tell us about what you do.
I am the director of a Civil Company and a few other smaller businesses. I wrote a book called Breaking The Bonds Of Mediocrity – which is self-published and will soon be released. One thing that I have learned which is big in my book is that Humans Can REALLY do anything and that what we practice we do and will become great at. Still, my experience is people tend to become really good at mediocre things.
What's your most memorable experience?
When I started making big money, I decided to give back. Inspired by Tony Robbins, I found a family one Christmas that was really doing it tough, and I surprised the mother with 500 dollars worth of gifts, food, etc. She didn't know me at all, but I had done my research to find someone suitable for my charity. There was no better feeling than knowing that I had gone out of my way to give love to a family who needed it. The tears she had were tears of love, and I will never forget that.
Which social media channels work best for promoting your work?
Instagram, LinkedIn, and Facebook.
What's your greatest fear?
I believe my life is a gift, not an obligation. I don't have any personal fears because I understand the reality of life, and I would rather die than not reach my true potential.
Looking back, what's one thing you wish you understood better before you ever got started?
I had never understood something before I got started, haha.
What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey?
Once I developed multiple income streams, I started doing courses on modern psychology NLP masters, marketing, hypnosis, psychotherapy, coaching masters, emotional intelligence courses. Books, videos, I would train HARD 5 days a week and always would listen to audiobooks while doing so.
Meditation is probably the most important thing I started doing.
What keeps you going when things get tough?
When things are tough, the meaning I give it has definitely changed. I only ever visualize great things for myself, and you can't actually feel bad when you see great ideas for your future, so that is a big one.
Any message for our readers.
Be mindful of what you are practicing, because you will get great at it. If you don't have a dream or goal guiding your life in a specific direction, you will be the same person 10 years from now. To achieve anything, the first step before you even commit to it is first working on your belief in yourself that you can actually do it. If you say something to yourself long enough, you will believe anything.
