Shane Jeremy James is the founder and president of Empowering Nations International Inc, a unique global training firm that focuses on creating positive change around the world.
Our aim is to bring out the best in people, by having them realize that they can achieve more than they ever thought possible, while at the same time focusing on making the world a better place.
Shane is known to many as the People’s Guru. He believes that even if you only help a few people in the world, you can still make a massive impact. If you focus on others and not just yourself, the universe will bring back all the resources you need to achieve all of your lifetime’s goals.
Shane has co-authored with the likes of Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy and Dr. Wayne Dyer. He is very proud of his new book “Think, Act, Love, Lose Weight”. Shane has a passion to create a healthier nation, to stop the weight epidemic that is harming countless people today and generations to come.
Among his extraordinary life achievements, Shane also became an expert at spotting emerging business trends before anybody. Shane’s first business venture took off when he was able to pick a small fitness franchise with just a few stores that soon grew into a chain of over 10,000 stores. This is where Shane got his start in the weight loss industry and has now changed hundreds of thousands of people’s weight and lives. Because of his extraordinary success in helping people lose weight, he was rewarded his own talk radio show called Mind, Body and Health. Shane says he learned a lot about running the fitness franchises and understands what people really need to lose weight and keep it off forever. He is not one of those so called experts that just writes a book on weight loss; he truly understands how to help people at their core.
Shane has had the privilege to be mentored by rich and successful people from many different backgrounds, and this has helped to cement his firm belief that people become like the people they surround themselves with.
But Shane’s life was not always like this…
At one time he was struggling to make ends meet, addicted to drugs, 65lbs overweight, with no home, no money and no sense of direction. It was amidst all this hopelessness that Shane made the biggest decision of his life. He decided not to accept failure or defeat ever again. The one thing Shane understood was the power of knowledge. Shane went out and read over 500 books in the fields of psychology, health, business, success, weight loss, nlp, persuasion, relationships and trends. Realizing he was onto something big, he went to hundreds of seminars and spent hours and hours listening to endless CD programs, all the while seeking any other information he could get his hands on. Quickly, his life started to take a positive change.
You will notice a pattern in Shane’s life. Everything that he teaches is something where he has managed to overcome his own personal struggles in that area. This is one of his core beliefs – that it’s only possible to teach people in specific areas if you have had the success in it yourself.
Shane believes people have dubbed him the People’s Guru due to all the challenges he has been through and overcome. People can look at his life and believe. If he can do it then they can do it. Overcoming his past challenges has paved the way for what he does today and that’s why he can do it so well. Shane understands exactly how people feel and he feels for them. He doesn’t just read out of a book. Instead, everything he teaches comes from him having to create the changes himself. Once he had made the change, that’s when people started to ask him if he could help them too.
Actually, Shane never planned on becoming a motivational speaker or a weight loss expert, but the people just choose him. This is what Shane was born to do and he is very appreciative of all the people who put their trust in him and his teachings. Shane wouldn’t be here today if it were not for his raving fans and his loyal friends who gave him the belief and the mission to help others.
According to Shane, the most important thing that he learned out of all his experiences was that if one person can do something, then all you have to do is model exactly what they do, and you too can get the same results. We all start at the bottom and so it takes a lot of discipline, desire and drive in a person, but anyone is able to achieve whatever they dream; all they have to do is believe they can.
