What has he learned? For one thing, he’s recognized that high achievers tend to share a similar story of attaining success that’s driven by hard work and tough choices, often accompanied by some moments that are simply divine.

John has won six Emmys and has written a NYT/USA Today best-seller entitled “The Perfection Point,” which explores the absolute limit of human performance. He now hosts the popular “The Brink of Midnight Podcast” that explores the moments that guests credit with changing their lives forever… those that pushed them in an unexpected direction, shaping the experiences that followed and molding them into the people who they are today. Recent guests featured on his podcast include NFL stars like Morten Andersen, Ray Lewis, Marshawn Lynch, Trent Dilfer, Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Vick; long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad; MMA legend Randy Couture; 6x Ironman Triathlon Champion and ITU World Champion Jordan Rapp, and well as various notable best-selling authors, comedians, singers, actors, directors, producers, and more.
