What could you accomplish if you had 700 years to live? Peter Diamandis, one of the world’s biggest dreamers (and doers), fundamentally believes there isn’t a problem that can’t be solved. For him, a longer, healthier lifespan is not only possible, but inevitable. He is an international pioneer in the fields of innovation, incentive competition and commercial space; the man behind XPRIZE and the co-founder of Human Longevity, Inc.; and the best-selling author of Abundance and Bold. And he has found a way to take his passion and creativity and transform it into a means of changing the world for the better. In this interview, SUCCESS Editor-in-Chief Josh Ellis and Diamandis discuss optimism, abundance thinking and the definition of success.
