The power of taking risks and dreaming big
During my recent trip to Cali, I became borderline obsessed with @sunlifeorganics açai bowls and shakes (swipe across to see the bowl of my dreams). Curious about the history of the brand, I picked up ‘Don’t Forget to Die’, a memoir written by founder @khalilrafati.
This gripping read documents Khalil’s life, from working for rockstars in Hollywood to hitting rock bottom and becoming a drug addict on Skid Row, then turning his life around aged 33 to create a wildly successful juice bar in Malibu. He’s an advocate for healing and fuelling the body through exercise and eating whole foods, which strongly aligns with our personal purpose and mission. A truly inspiring story of grit, courage and conviction, ‘I Forgot to Die’ is a must read and is available on Kindle in the U.K. The message is clear throughout... it’s never too late to live the life you want to and with hard work and determination we can achieve whatever we set our minds to.
In the words of Khalil himself: “Don’t worry about what people will think! Take big risks, dream big and be willing to look foolish in front of others”.
