How to be a Giver Not a Taker in Life with Bruce Cardenas
The great Tony Robbins said, “The Secret to Living, is Giving.”
Another one of our mentors once told us that if things aren’t going your way in life and you’re trying to find happiness, go out and give to others, make them happy, and in turn that will bring you more happiness.
In episode 109, we had an amazing in person conversation with Quest Nutrition’s Chief Communication Officer, Bruce Cardenas about being a giver, not a taker in life.
Bruce is no stranger to being a giver his entire life. He worked for free for Quest Nutrition for 9 months and didn’t ask to get paid. That form of giving led him to creating his job position with Quest Nutrition.
Bruce also has an incredible story as he started out in the Marines, from there he had a career at the Los Angeles Police Department, then started his own A-list bodyguard business, and from there went on to being with Quest Nutrition.
