Interview 140 Brief: During our research and while looking into different profiles on Twitter, we stumbled upon a certain trend being carried out by a few great Twitter lovers who have the ability to use Twitter in a way that makes the world a better place! Thus, the idea of Interview in 140 characters came into play! We decided to pick one Twitter user every once in a while and interview him/her about different topics of interest to the whole Twitter community and us as well.
A line about the interviewee:
Larry Agresto is a life and success coach, and the founder of Peak Performance Coaching – A business and executive coaching firm that aims to create extraordinary levels of business results and personal fulfillment. Larry is also a brilliant writer, author and speaker, who has a great passion towards helping other people achieve their “true” potential in life.
With a staggering 25,793 followers on Twitter and more than 10,688 quality tweets, one can understand how popular @lagresto and appreciate to what extent people are actually following his tweets for a daily dose of “Magical Thinking“.
He has published several e-books which are related to his line of expertise; “The Principles of Success”, “The Journey”, “What’s Stopping You”, “The 100 Day Breakthrough”, “The Power of Magical Thinking”, and he is currently working on a new book entitled “The 21 Day Breakthrough!”.
Interview140 Analysis and Lessons:
Life is not easy, we all get stuck with our habitual behavior and struggle with the heavy baggage of our past which we carry upon our shoulders. We are always in need for people like Larry to give us a wake up call and remind us that life can actually be an enjoyable ride.
It took Larry a tragedy – losing his own wife – in order to be able to transform himself and realize his own potential in life. It helped him realize his own inner strengths, those he never knew he had. This changed his life and pushed him to become a man who knows how to make a difference in the life of others.
Again, like we have seen in Paulo Coelho‘s experience with social media, we can see it again with Larry. He is a man who aspires to touch people’s hearts. His passion is to connect with other people and help them realize that they can be happy – no matter what -. Social media offers the right tools for such men.
We are proud to say that we learned some valuable lessons from @Lagreso that we would like to share:
- Sometimes life’s hardship make us lose focus and forget about our true potential in life. It is good to be reminded that we can actually make a change.
- We create our own realities in life; what you believe your are, you will be!
- It may take sometime to build a big community of followers using social media, but it is always rewarding.
- Life’s tragedies has the potential of making people realize strength within themselves, that which they haven’t knew existed before.
- Sadly, there is still a lot of fear, anger and greed in the world, but we, as human beings, are evolving. Things are shifting to the better and we are always able to make a difference.
