Kevin Stone Q&A
YOU’VE OBVIOUSLY EXPERIENCED A GREAT DEAL OF SUCCESS IN YOUR LIFE. WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS YOUR GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT, AND WHY?
My greatest accomplishment is being a servant to all, to live life in a way that inspires and helps those to better themselves. I want to continue helping individuals push beyond their preconceived limits in life and helping others to achieve more than they initially thought possible. Life is a journey and mine is not over, I think that the greatest accomplishments are still yet to come.
LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS SMOOTH. CAN YOU TALK ABOUT A SETBACK OR TRAGEDY YOU’VE ENCOUNTERED, HOW YOU DEALT WITH IT, AND THE IMPACT IT HAS HAD ON YOU?
I have failed in almost every conceivable way. I have lost everything, (my family, home, car, career, friends, etc.) but I learned humility and I was humbled by these failures. It was a turning point in my career as well as my outlook on life. Before I lost everything, I was focused on my career and what I considered to be success. It was when I lost everything, that God got my attention. He taught me what was important and it wasn’t making money or my career or the things of the world. I went through some very trying and rough times but I have come back stronger, wiser and more appreciative than ever! I have become stronger and more resilient. I’m still impacted when things go wrong, but I can maintain my balance knowing spiritually who my strength comes from.
DO YOU SET ASIDE “ME-TIME” IN YOUR CALENDAR, AND WHAT DO YOU DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME TO RELAX?
I do not like to relax. Relaxing is not relaxing to me. However, I do like to exercise so I make time to work out. I also enjoy the calmness and peacefulness of the night I can catch up on reading or the news of the day or just to be still. I always feel accomplished and content starting the day that way.
WHAT’S THE MOST MAGICAL PLACE YOU’VE DISCOVERED WHERE YOU CAN GO TO CHILL OUT?
That is the great thing about Self Hypnosis as well as prayer! Being within my own mind and in my own positive thoughts and environment! I’m alone and undisturbed and can think and reflect. I don’t ever have to leave my home. I simply close my eyes and I’m anywhere that I want to be!
DOES PHILANTHROPY PLAY A ROLE IN YOUR LIFE, TO WHAT EXTENT AND HOW?
Yes, but not in the traditional sense. I donate my time to various charities and programs that help fund arts education in the public schools. It is very important to me to give back. It varies depending on work commitments. I’ve volunteered with homeless kitchens, prison visiting, animal rescue organizations and the Special Olympics. My mission is to look around my community and directly help.
WHO IS ON THE GUEST LIST FOR YOUR IDEAL DINNER PARTY, PRESENT OR PAST?
My guests would be the following: First and foremost God, All current leaders of major faiths around the world, James Braid, Franz Anton Mesmer, Oprah Winfrey, Socrates, Plato, Mother Teresa, Stalin, Hitler, Mary Mother of Jesus, Amelia Earhart, Walt Disney, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Sacagawea, Mark Zuckerberg, and the Presidents of The United States.
CAN YOU OFFER ANY WORDS OF WISDOM FOR OUR READERS?
One of the most powerful abilities that we have to give is LOVE! Everyone is looking for their purpose. Many people ask me “the how” how I was able to find my purpose. My success “formula” is Love God, Family, Church, Country, and Work.
My purpose and mission in life at any given time is to make the lives of everyone around me better. If you are doing that, you will find your purpose and happiness. We can show LOVE at anytime. LOVE conquers all!
