Mac Miller was a zombie once. Not the videogame-kind of zombie. But the corporate world kind.
Since he graduated from College all he did in his life was to get up early in the mornings from Monday to Friday and work 10- 11 hours a day in order to be able to enjoy Saturday and half Sunday with his family and friends.
Making a good income was his best incentive until he realized he didn't actually had time to enjoy the things that he bought with the money. Then he focused on simply doing his best job.
On December 5th 2008 his life would change forever. That day he was called to Human Resources and told that he was being laid off the next week.
For a moment Mac felt he couldn't breath. The sky fell on his shoulders. However, when he walked out that building and called his family to tell them the news, something had changed. A deep feeling of relieve was running through his veins.
He was not a zombie anymore. Suddenly life had become interesting, challenging. There was uncertainty in his future, sure. But at least now he felt alive.
This is the real story of Mac Miller, the author of 7 Ways to Live, Not Merely Exist. His story is not unique. Every day more and more people struggle with their comfortable yet apathetic and dull lives.
In case you're wondering, Mac didn't go back to the corporate world. He found a way to live in his own terms, doing a job he loves and helping other people to do the same thing.
