113: BAR40- How to Move Towards Your Best Year Ever! with Eric Bartosz


Eric J. Bartosz, the Founder of BAR40, stops by this week in our KPKG stage. A day in our lives revolves mainly around hassles and hustles. There are even times (if not most of the time) when we start to wonder if we’re still alive! The set up of our society sucks the joy out of our lives. But not anymore! Eric’s Bar 40 Method counteracts that default we’re programmed to follow. I am particularly intrigued by his methodology that combines self-empowerment and fun. Today, Eric expands more on how the Bar40 method works, along with our goal of becoming the best version of ourselves. He shares two ways we usually look at things, how these perceptions affect how we react, how we can balance ambition and acceptance, and how to set up a new standard for personal excellence in our terms. The Bar40 method is sustainable and fun. Nobody wants to show up feeling anxious and stressed out. Stop cheating on yourself! It is your responsibility to hold yourself accountable for your success and happiness.


“Everyday, each of us, is the author of our own life story based on our choices, habits, and actions.  At the same time, history is not destiny. Each morning brings a fresh page we get to write on to decide where the plot goes next.” -Eric Bartosz
