Mike Fagan - Passion Profile

1/7: 

What makes you 1 of 7 billion?

MF:

I believe that all of us are unique in one way or another, but my gifts lie in resiliency, self-discipline, work ethic, and the lifelong passion of passing along the wisdom of one’s health being their most valuable asset, and they should invest in it

1/7: 

What barriers have you identified in life that have kept you from following your passions?

MF:  

The continual balancing act of responsibilities, such as: family, business, and self-sufficiency. Specifically, the time management associated with these against the desire of following one’s passions

1/7: 

What methods have you learned to use to overcome those barriers?

MF:

Prioritizing, delaying gratification and self-discipline.

Do you want to share your favorite inspirational quote to help motivate others?

You are what you do…Not what you did yesterday or throughout the course of your life. Who you are is defined in the moment by your daily decisions…Anonymous Author.

1/7: 

What do you have to say to those that tell you you’re too old to do something?

MF:

I try to be patient with them and then attempt to inoculate their ignorance with the challenge to examine themselves first, not others.

My Thoughts on Mike

Mike found me through my website. He was researching for a project of his own. He was preparing to do the Calendar Year Triple Crown. That’s the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail, over 8000 miles in one calendar year.

Mike was impressed with the One of Seven Project and its message. I was equally impressed by Mike’s “Disrupting Age Model” Project, as Mike is 71 years old! Mike is one of those people who don’t sit idly on the side lines. He understand that his health and happiness depend on him continuing to do the things he loves, his passions.

Like the One of Seven Project, Mike’s Triple Crown Challenge is about breaking down barriers and motivating others to take a look at their own lives. Hopefully the result is Mike can motivate others to follow their passions no matter their age.

Mike will be starting the Appalachian Trail on Feb. 5th on Springer Mtn. in Georgia. You can follow Mike’s progress at the social media link below.

About the Passion Profiles

Throughout my adventures I’ve meet people who I think truly embrace what it means to be passionate. The subject of their passion isn’t always the same or one I might share but that is what makes them standout. I believe our passions are a big part of what makes us unique.

Each month I will choose an individual who embodies what it means to be passionate or One of Seven Billion. The goal of the Passion Profiles is not to simply highlight these individuals but to share their story and passion(s), in hopes it will motivate others to embrace and follow their own passions.

The Passion Profiles embrace the One of Seven Project’s Core Values and attempt to make a difference in others’s lives by helping to breakdown barriers, while encouraging them to be unique, or One of Seven Billion.

Core Values

Encourage others to truly know themselves and their passions.

Assist others in celebrating their uniqueness by following those passions that make them unique.

Humanize adventure.

Help others be the best version of themselves.

If you know someone who would be a good candidate, please use our Contact form and let us know who they are and how we can reach them. You can also watch my introduction video for the Passion Profiles below. Thanks!
