The Fifth Vital by is a book I’ve been wanting to review for a while now becaus…

The Fifth Vital by @heybigmike is a book I’ve been wanting to review for a while now because it just shows how no matter how bad you think you messed up because of your past, you can always create a better future. Now to give you a brief background about Mike, going into his teen years to his early 20’s Mike was selling and addicted to opioids. Before I read this book, I always knew the opioid epidemic was bad but this firsthand account of Mike’s addiction really solidified how big an opioid addiction problem we have in our country.
.
.
Anyways, Mike details some pretty surreal stories of his days dealing drugs which led to car chases, being held-up at gunpoint, and felony charges. He became clean during his mid-20’s after almost a decade of this type of lifestyle. Coming clean wasn’t just a physical process of ridding his body of all the drugs, but the PTSD and emotional turmoil that comes with a life of dealing drugs. Mike is very transparent about all mental health struggles and nightmares he has to this day from his past decisions which is incredibly important when addressing the mental health crisis in this country.
.
.
Fast-forward a couple years after getting clean, Mike found a Craigslist ad for a social media manager at a start-up called @lovesac . He filled out the application and the CEO of Lovesac called him to set up a meeting. Mike’s thoughts went wild of “I’m not qualified to do this,” “what if he finds out about my past,” etc. But he showed up and was able to secure a position because the CEO liked and believed in him regardless of his experience. At @lovesac Mike created one of the most successful social media influencer campaigns in history which connected to him to some of the biggest names in entertainment.
.
.
Fast-forward to today, Mike has millions of subscribers on youtube, cohost of a successful podcast, and is now a best-selling author… So if Mike can make it out of his addiction and destructive behavior, you can surely overcome the demons of your past. The lesson the Fifth Vital taught me is that as long as you believe in yourself, you can always overcome your past “failures” no matter how bad they might be!
