Tech Millionaire Obsessed With Becoming a Real-Life Version of Benjamin Button Confesses How He Follow His Insane Routine: “Other Side of Pain”

The pursuit of one’s goals, dreams, or desires often encounters roadblocks. Sometimes, in the realm of fitness or bodybuilding, the steepest of these obstacles is pain. You must know the Hollywood movie ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,’ where the main character had a unique condition that caused him to grow younger instead of older. Not long ago, the founder and CEO of a biotech company, Bryan Johnson, invested millions in using advanced technology to make himself younger. His company is also working on a project called ‘BluePrint,’ which aims to change the genetic makeup of humans.

In the video accompanying his profound statement, “Everything I value is on the other side of pain.” Johnson delved deeper into what he meant.

Navigating through the pain of hunger, or any pain for that matter, requires a unique form of negotiation. This isn’t the kind of negotiation one might engage in during a business meeting or when trying to convince a toddler to eat their vegetables. It’s an inner dialogue, a mental tug-of-war. In the realm of fitness, this inner struggle becomes even more pronounced.

Yet, as Johnson points out, it’s often after confronting and negotiating with such discomforts that fitness advocates feel their proudest. “The things I most value in my life have been achieved on the other side of pain,” he shared.

Feeling great, as Johnson explains, isn’t just about the absence of pain. Instead, it comes from the realization that we’ve successfully “pushed through pain.” Indeed, there’s a simple truth in this. The things we remember the most and are most proud of usually don’t happen when everything is easy. They happen when we face tough challenges, overcome difficulties, and endure pain.
