About Sid Savara

Hi. My name is Sid Savara, and let me ask you a question:

Do you want to make the most out of the time you have in your life? Do you want to accomplish your goals, live up to your potential – and enjoy it all?

If you do, you are in the right place: you are the reason I started this website, to find kindred spirits just like you.

I’ve spent two decades studying what makes people succeed – and why people fail

It’s crazy to think that in these past few years, I went from writing  s, and that you are here because you too can learn from the strategies and techniques I’ve discovered.

The truth is, telling people “About Sid” has always been something very difficult for me.

So rather than giving you a formal, “best foot forward” biography, I’m going to tell you the real story.

You’re going to come with me way back to the beginning about who I am, where I came from – and why I can’t help but do what I do.

(By the way, if you DO just want a quick clean bio for a publication, feel free to grab it here: Sid’s media bio)

In The Beginning…

In the beginning, I never meant to teach people how to improve their lives – I just wanted to figure out how things worked.  And I don’t just mean about accomplishing my dreams – I mean, how everything worked

I always was a bit of an odd kid, and had an insatiable appetite for learning how things worked.  I was never quite content to just listen and do it because “that’s the way we do things” – at a young age, I constantly annoyed adults by asking “why?”

But I can’t say I did it because I’m much of a rebel – I just really wanted to know.

  • Why is it that I shouldn’t swim after eating?
  • Why should I eat my vegetables?
  • Why can’t I blow out candles on other people’s birthday cakes?

And while I didn’t agree with it, and didn’t enjoy it, I understood why I was supposed to eat my green vegetables (and would later do the research to back up my mom’s life advice).

I Break Things (To See How They Work)

One of my clearest memories from my childhood was intentionally breaking my cousin’s brand new hand held video game he had received for his birthday.

All of us cousins were sitting around amazed by it, and when he went to school, I was left all alone with it.

I couldn’t stop playing the game – and once I figured out the mechanics, I promptly beat the game and got bored with it.

And then I wondered…how does it really work.

  • How do the lights light up?
  • How does the control pad work?

I had no idea how expensive his new toy was – but I knew I had to know how it worked.

So I smashed it.

He came home and saw me playing with it in shambles and asked me … “What happened?”

“It’s broken. But it still works!”

I showed him how I had rigged it up so you could still play it (sort of)

Looking back now it’s a wonder he didn’t beat the snot out of me.

I Keep Looking For Patterns

Time flies by fast as you grow up, but I remember so often looking at things and seeing patterns where nobody else did.

I was undersized playing soccer and basketball, but what I lacked in brute force I made up for with seeing patterns, loopholes in the rules, and what strategies REALLY worked and what didn’t.

And then I started to notice that patterns exist in all areas of life.

I started to learn that things could be so much easier if I just learned from what was working, and what wasn’t – and applied what worked to my own life.

Patterns Applied In Real Life

Though I initially was shy, introverted (and not to mention culturally a fish out of water, having moved countries three times before I even started kindergarten!), I realized that by analyzing the patterns of what worked for others, and then systematically testing them, I could be just as good as anyone else.

So that’s what I did…

  • I learned what was required in school, and ended up graduating at the top of my class and receiving a full scholarship to college.
  • I researched nutrition and fitness, and ended up first losing 30 lbs of fat, and then gaining 50 lbs of muscle
  • I learned what worked and what didn’t in the professional world, and quickly climbed the ranks to a senior position

But most importantly of all….

I learned that there was a way to always achieve what I wanted.

It’s not easy, and it’s not that I magically can have anything I want. But I have learned that I can manage my time, effort and energy so that with very little mental effort or stress I (or really, anybody) can accomplish great things.

Perhaps the best example of this was when in my early 20s, I was able to work full time at a Fortune 500 company, while completing my Master’s Degree at a Top 20 University, all while growing my circle of friends, improving my fitness and starting a band!

Where We Are Today

And that brings us to where we are today. Over the past few years I’ve learned so much about business, life, relationships, fitness and long term happiness.

I think a lot about not just where we are today – but also how to accomplish my dreams and also live my life so I can look back with satisfaction rather than regret. I’ve made mistakes, and where I have, I try to share those lessons so you don’t have to go through the same mistakes I did.

And through it all, I’ve continued to stubbornly refuse to just accept things – especially techniques to improve my life. I always ask:

  • Does it really work?
  • How does it work?
  • Why does it work?
  • How can I share this so it helps others

Asking why, searching for the patterns that work, and really just searching for the provable truth is what drives everything I do.

Why I Started Writing

The reason I started writing here was because I was tired of all the junk out there – all the bad advice that sounds good on paper, that makes people feel warm and tingly inside – and then doesn’t work.

I got so frustrated of seeing people follow what I knew was bad advice, and then fail – just as I had followed bad advice and failed in the past.

So I began to write and share what I had learned from trying, succeeding….and failing over the years.

And something amazing happened.

People started to try out the advice I was giving and started to see real results.

Now in the years since I started writing, literally tens of thousands of readers just like you have gone through my courses.

Hundreds have written in pouring in their thanks, letters of testimonial – and perhaps the best of all, have told their friends about the resources here.

I love accomplishing my goals – to me, accomplishing your goals is about the closest to a magic bullet for getting exactly what you want in life.

I think everyone should have the opportunity to do what they love, contribute to the world, and live a life of freedom to do what they desire.

That’s what drives me, and why I write for you.
