Today we’d like to introduce you to Garrain Jones.
Garrain, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
About ten years ago, I had a chance encounter with Ludacris and had a recording contract with his record label, Disturbing the Peace and worked with stars like Chris Brown and Angela Stone.
As I continued to write music, the business deals I was involved in excluded me from the financial rewards of my work. I soon found myself in $200,000 of debt. I was living out of my car and had severed nearly every relationship with my loved ones, including my daughter and girlfriend at the time. I was at the absolute lowest point of my life.
At that point, I didn’t care whether I lived or died. Fed up and exhausted, I screamed out at the top of my lungs, “I’m tired of fighting! I want to be happy, healthy, and surrounded by nothing but positive people! I just want to inspire people!” I also knew that I needed to make money, but I wanted that wealth to represent something that I passionately believe in that I would do for free. I knew I needed a sign.
Shortly after, I was at the gas station with my last $2 in my pocket, and a homeless man walked up to me and asked for money. I told him that he had more money than me, and he replied, “Change your mindset, change your life.” It was then I knew that everything had changed. It was at that moment I had a conscious interrupt. I learned to understand that my life was the way that it was because of how I was thinking.
If I could somehow shift my mindset, then my life could change. I started to do the opposite of everything that I would normally do. By applying the principle “change your mindset; change your life,” I transformed all areas of my life (health, mindset, purpose). Before I looked up, there were hundreds of thousands of people following me and my willingness to be vulnerable and share my testimony.
Fast forward a few years, and I have built a meaningful life, full of positivity and passion. I speak to audiences worldwide on the power of transformational change and living a life full of abundance.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Absolutely not. It was a long, hard path to where I am today, filled with many low points. At one point in my life when I was on the streets, I considered suicide. I had zero direction and lacked purpose.
Purpose is what fuels us, and without it, we are nothing. It took years of struggle to understand what my ultimate purpose was, and now that I’ve found it and understood what my ultimate purpose on this planet is, my life is abundant, and I find so my joy in helping others find their path as well.
No matter what you’re going through, it’s critical to remember that you can always change your outcome; you have the power to create your own destiny. By losing myself, I’ve found myself.
We’d love to hear more about what you do.
I am a global speaker on a Transformational change to audiences young and old. I have spoken in countries around the world including Croatia, Serbia, Brazil, South Africa, and Puerto Rico.
My talks focus on the power of transformational change, and the importance of creating your own destiny using the power of your own mindset. My work and purpose is to fuel others with the passion they know is inside themselves.
