ABOUT BRYAN TEARE

I'M HERE TO EMPOWER YOU TO A QUARTER LIFE COMEBACK

Have you ever got to a point in your life where despite following all the rules, there was this feeling deep down that this just wasn't it? Like there had to be something more?

I get it. I began my life checking all the boxes towards success. I performed well academically, got a good job and made a good salary. But something was missing. I was unfulfilled.

After some pretty big decisions (more on those below), I began defining what I wanted my life to look like and designing my day and work around that (not the other way around!).

I started getting rid of all the "stuff" that was cluttering my life, simplified my diet and exercise routine and became more aware of how I was spending my time.

I created a Quarter Life Comeback.

I now share what I've learned here on my website, covering topics such as simplicity, habits, happiness and health (what I like to call a Post Grad in How to Live) to empower you to become the hero of your own life's journey.

Sound good?

A BIT MORE ABOUT ME...

Hi there. I'm Bryan Teare and this site is my little online home.

Up until 2013, my life was pretty normal: I stayed out of trouble, followed the rules and worked hard. I thought I had my whole life figured out (including by what age I'd get married!).

But then at my 25th birthday (a dress-up, of course), I started noticing how all of my friends, myself included, were complaining about how much their jobs and the working world sucked.

Yes, we had hit the dreaded Quarter Life Crisis.

Anyway, back to the party. Out of nowhere, I suddenly piped up: "If I could resign now, I would."

And then it hit me. I could.

In fact, just 1 month later, I had left my comfy engineering job with no plan B.

After some soul-searching while traveling solo through Asia and experimenting with different things that interested me (a process which I believe never ends), I realized that what I had always wanted to do was help others live better and become the best versions of themselves. This led to a personal training certification and later, life coaching.

Quarter Life Crisis? Never heard of it. On the beach in Thailand 2012.

I began my Quarter Life Comeback by learning what it meant to live optimally and started giving myself what I like to call a 'Post Grad in How to Live' by studying different people & principles and applying them to my own life.

In particular, I began defining what I wanted my life to look like and designing my day and work around that (not the other way around!). I started getting rid of all the "stuff" that was cluttering my internal & external environment, simplified my diet and exercise routine and became more aware of how I was spending my time.

I now share what I've learned on topics such as simplicity, habits, happiness and health (which I share in my email newsletter), as well as through working with clients one-on-one to help them get clear on what it is they truly want in life, what's standing in the way and how to actually start moving towards it. You can find more details here.

I don't claim to be an expert, and my life is still very much a roller coaster of ups and downs. But I've committed to creating something I can be proud of, rather than simply cruising along on autopilot.

It's my wish that you will do the same.

MY MISSION STATEMENT

To do everything I do with passion. To live a life story worth telling. To be remembered as someone who cared. To see the best in everyone. To treat people as friends I haven't met yet. To constantly learn/try new things. To own more experiences than material goods. To not stress about things beyond my control. To regret things I did rather than those I didn't do. To go to bed a little wiser each day.
