Hi! I’m Mike Laferney, a 36-year-old writer and entrepreneur.
What inspires you everyday
I seek inspiration anywhere I can find it. Sometimes, I’m inspired by people I know. Other times, I find inspiration through reading, music, and people I look up to. It’s never the same, though. Everyday, I’m inspired by something/someone different.
What is something you would change about people in the world
I’d love to see people think more for themselves and question the things around them.
What is your view on the people in the world
I think that diversity is what makes this world great. I seek you understand people, not judge them. I love learning about different people and cultures from around the world.
What is something you’ve struggled with in life
Depression and anxiety. I’ve gone through long periods of both and they’re equally crippling. Fortunately, I’ve learned ways to minimize and even eliminate them both: exercise, proper sleep, good nutrition, some supplements, meditation, etc.
What is a positive message you would give others
Action beats intention every time. If you want something, don’t just sit around wishing for it. Go out and work for it!
Last question if you could make a difference in the world how would you do that
Education. The path to a better future begins by improving education at home and around the world. Teach kids about how their bodies work, how to think critically, and how to live a happy productive life. I never learned these things in school and neither does anyone else. Improve education and everything else improves as a result
