  • - [Narrator] This is Leo, and Leo knows the secret

  • to creating limitless motivation.

  • But before we can talk about that

  • we need to first understand his childhood.

  • Leo was born into the slums of Brazil

  • known as the Favelas.

  • And this area is filled with crime, drugs, danger

  • and there essentially is no government

  • enforcing any laws here.

  • And Leo had a pretty rough childhood,

  • he never met his Dad and his Mom worked all the time

  • in order to put food on the table for him

  • and his little brother.

  • And she was the most important person to him in his life.

  • But one day Leo's Mom got very sick.

  • And there wasn't a hospital for them to go to

  • and they couldn't really afford to go to the city

  • and pick up the right medical supplies.

  • Leo and his brother did everything they could to help her

  • but she didn't make it and she died.

  • At the young age of 17,

  • Leo had now become the man of the house.

  • He had no money, no expertise, no education,

  • but he had to somehow figure out a way

  • to provide for himself and his eight year old brother.

  • And if he couldn't figure this out,

  • him and his brother probably

  • wouldn't be able to live long lives.

  • At first Leo tried to do legitimate work

  • for people around the city, stuff like cleaning,

  • shopping, that kind of thing.

  • But he quickly realized that this kind of work

  • would not be enough plus a lot of the time

  • the locals would scam him

  • or they wouldn't be able to pay him enough money

  • so things quickly went from being bad to worse.

  • And he was slowly running out of options.

  • So one day Leo was walking around the city

  • and he was starving,

  • he was literally willing to do anything to get some food.

  • And he noticed there was a house with an open back door.

  • He looked inside and saw this big platter of bread,

  • wine and cheese and just looking at this

  • made his mouth water.

  • And without thinking, Leo went in there

  • and tried to take some.

  • As he was packing up the food in his bag,

  • he was caught by a group of three men

  • and they threatened to take his life

  • for what he was doing.

  • He begged them to spare his life and he told them

  • that he had a younger brother and that he had a future

  • and that we would do anything just to let him go.

  • And luckily they did let him go

  • but there was a cost.

  • They took all of his money,

  • they took the only bag that he had

  • and they even took the shoes off of his feet.

  • When Leo walked home that day,

  • he didn't feel like a real person.

  • He felt broken and lost.

  • And when Leo walked through the door

  • and made eye contact with his incredibly skinny brother,

  • he just burst into tears.

  • Leo knew how hungry his little brother was

  • and how we would pray every night for him to simply

  • come home with just a little bit of food.

  • They both were starving and they both were slowly

  • giving up all hope.

  • The next day, Leo was once again walking in the streets

  • but this time a man caught his eye.

  • This man was tall and he was wearing these nice black shoes

  • which was not very common in this area.

  • The man looked confused and lost

  • which was a dangerous state to be in

  • in a place like the Favelas.

  • Maybe this man can buy me if I can help him with something,

  • Leo thought to himself.

  • So he went up to the man and asked,

  • "Hey Sir, are you lost?"

  • And it turned out he was a wealthy business man

  • who was from the city center of Rio

  • and he had come to explore the Favelas.

  • After they had talked for a little bit

  • and established a little bit of trust,

  • Leo said, "Look, I'll make you a deal.

  • "You are probably going to get robbed,

  • "if you keep walking around like the way you are.

  • "I'll show you around the Favelas

  • "if you buy me groceries for the week."

  • The wealthy man paused for a second and said,

  • "Okay, deal."

  • So they spent the whole day walking around

  • and Leo knew every detail about his city,

  • he knew where the best views were,

  • which areas to avoid, even the secret places

  • that only the locals knew about.

  • And the wealthy man was so impressed by Leo's knowledge

  • that he actually offered to buy him dinner.

  • And of course, Leo said yes.

  • And as the wealthy man watched

  • Leo stuff his face with food, he asked,

  • "How come you want me to buy you groceries?

  • "I feel like most boys your age

  • "would rather spend money on other things?"

  • And this question led Leo to tell him the story

  • about his Mom's death

  • and how he had to provide for his brother

  • and how they were basically starving.

  • This story really moved the wealthy man

  • and he wanted to help.

  • So the wealthy man said,

  • "Look, I actually run a tourism business

  • "in the city center of Rio

  • "where wealthy tourists from all over the world

  • "come and get shown around the city

  • "and not a single one of my tour guides

  • "were as nearly as thorough as you were today.

  • "If you knew this much about the city center of Rio

  • "you would be the best tour guide by far."

  • And without hesitation Leo said, "I'll do it.

  • "I'll come work for you right now,

  • "just take me and my brother and I'll start tomorrow."

  • The wealthy man looked at him and quietly said,

  • "No, but I will give you these books

  • "describing the tours that we offer

  • "and you will need to read through all of them

  • "and learn everything you can about Rio,

  • "the history, the attractions, the street names,

  • "I mean everything.

  • "And if you pass my test I will consider bringing you on."

  • The man gave Leo the books, paid for his groceries

  • and he told him that he would return in about two weeks.

  • And when Leo got home he just looked at all the books.

  • It reminded him of when he was in school

  • and how overwhelmed he would feel

  • when he had to read books for his classes.

  • See, Leo had actually dropped out of school

  • at a very early age because his teachers and peers

  • labeled him as incompetent and stupid.

  • And they basically told him

  • that he wouldn't be successful

  • and all these voices still deeply haunted him to this day.

  • And Leo thought to himself, this is crazy.

  • Should I actually spend my time

  • reading these books while I could be out

  • trying to get more food?

  • But then he looked over at his incredibly skinny,

  • starving brother.

  • And he realized that he had to try.

  • Leo gave pretty much all the groceries to his brother

  • so it would last him two weeks

  • instead of lasting them both one week.

  • So that means that Leo barely ate, barely slept,

  • and he spent the next two weeks glued to those books.

  • He would spend 20 minutes reading a single page,

  • sounding out every word, looking up the meaning of the words

  • and he dissected everything in these books.

  • And he would constantly hear those voices of doubt

  • in his head.

  • You're a stupid kid, you're a loser,

  • you aren't good enough.

  • You aren't the type of person

  • who can pull these types of miracles off.

  • Leo felt like he was slowly going insane.

  • Fast forward 12 days and Leo hears a knock on the door.

  • Leo opened the door and he saw the tall, wealthy man.

  • And he had a big smile on his face.

  • "You ready?" the man said.

  • Leo replied with, "I hope so."

  • And for the next six hours Leo was drilled with questions

  • asking him why is this street important,

  • what is this area called, what building is that,

  • why do we avoid that area?

  • And this went on and on and on.

  • But eventually it was over.

  • The wealthy man closed his book and said,

  • "Okay, I'll think about it.

  • "And I'll come back to you in a few days

  • "with a decision."

  • And just like that he was gone.

  • And every hour that went by, Leo wondered about the man.

  • Both him and his brother's entire futures

  • was riding on this.

  • Their survivability was riding on this.

  • And two days later, the man returned.

  • And he was driving a big van.

  • And Leo ran outside and asked,

  • "Did I pass, can I jump in the car with you right now?"

  • The wealthy man paused for a moment and said,

  • "No, you can't.

  • "Pack your bags, get your brother

  • "and then you can come in the van with me."

  • And within the hour they were gone.

  • And over the next few months,

  • Leo became one of the hardest working employees

  • in the company and over the next few years

  • he even started to work side by side the wealthy man.

  • And they turned that company

  • into one of the top tourism companies

  • in all of South America.

  • Leo was able to provide for himself, his brother

  • and start a family.

  • So what is Leo's secret to motivation?

  • And how can you unlock your motivation?

  • The reason why Leo is so motivated

  • is because he was grateful for every moment

  • that he spent outside the favelas.

  • He was grateful that he could be in an environment

  • where he could go outside and not fear for his life.

  • And he was grateful that he didn't have to resort

  • to stealing or selling drugs

  • or all sorts of other crazy things

  • in order to put food on the table.

  • He was grateful for every breath that he took.

  • And he will never forget where he came from.

  • This gratittuted idea is the key

  • to unlock that limitless motivation.

  • Because when you truly understand

  • just how lucky you are to even have access

  • to things like the internet or having a roof over your head

  • or even having the option to start a business,

  • you will want to seize every single opportunity

  • that is placed in front of you.

  • When you become grateful,

  • you won't need to watch any more motivational videos.

  • Check out my last video about the real truth about success.

  • And I'll see you there.
