About John Goodyear

Hi, I’m John Goodyear, and welcome to LifeOnyx/The LifeOnyx Podcast.

I’m a self-development researcher, blogger, author and most recently a podcaster. I am highly intrigued with success psychology and achievement especially in the areas of wealth, personal greatness, and lifestyle design/achievement.

I realize, depending on your background, how you are socially or culturally influenced and the breadth of the knowledge you possess, you may resonate with many of my thoughts and opinions. On the other hand, it’s quite possible you may strongly disagree or be highly insulted. Either way I will understand.

My Story

The Simple Version:

I grew up in a small outport town on Newfoundland Island located in Atlantic Canada. After graduating from high school, I moved to the historic city of St. John’s, Newfoundland where I attended college and started a career as a sign and graphic artist.

At the beginning of the great recession (2008-2009), I blindly ventured into the fine arts world as a sculptural artist. This experience would become a major eye-opener as I realized that my previous education and upbringing did not prepare me for reality, or at least the reality that I truly desired. In 2012, I staggered back to the life of a regular day job.

By 2017, I became intrigued by those who achieved success, life fulfillment and greatness, especially those who were living on the upper end of society. That’s when I started on this amazing journey of self-development and success psychology.

As my passion for success and lifestyle achievement grew, I started a small blog which was mainly a hobby to fuel research in this subject. In 2020, I wrote my first 60-page book titled “Forging a Wealth Mindset”. As time passed my passion eventually evolved into The LifeOnyx Podcast. This podcast allows me to meet and chat with extraordinary people who possess the knowledge and strategies required to effectively navigate life and acquire success and lifestyle achievement.


The Philosophical Version:

I grew up on the end of society where most people were either running blind or just sitting in the dark. Daily conversations consisted mostly of ramblings infused with negative news and recycled information that added no value to anyone.

Conversations about money were often obscure with enigmatic indications that money wasn’t important, or that it wouldn’t bring happiness. Yet, everyone around me continued to buy those pretty lotto tickets and toil their lives away to make very little of that trivial money.

Very few people spoke about health, vitality or longevity. However, when they did it was usually some shallow and misleading garbage created by bad cultural beliefs, commercialism or some viral nonsense that was circulating on social media.

Sadly, most people around me appeared to be living a small life of dullness and/or misery just to have what they called happiness. However, from my perspective, their happiness appeared to be a facade supported by heavy debt loads and fake smiles.

On the verge of 2017, I realized that I was slipping into a similar paradigm. It appeared that I too was living in a life-long chapter that was stuck in an infinite loop. It didn’t seem to have any kind of evolving story with a beginning, middle or end. It was like I was reading the same paragraph of my life over and over, day after day, year after year.

Nobody talked about money except to say that it wasn’t important, or that it wouldn’t make you happy. Yet, they continued to buy those pretty lotto tickets and toil their lives away to make very little of it and then complain that everything was too expensive.

Very few people spoke about health, vitality or longevity. However, when they did it was usually some shallow and misleading garbage created by bad cultural beliefs, commercialism or some viral shit that was circulating on social media.

Sadly, most people around me appeared to be living a small life of dullness and/or misery just to have what they called happiness. From my perspective, their happiness appeared to be a facade supported by heavy debt loads and fake smiles with no apparent passion for life.

On the verge of 2017, I realized that I was slipping into a similar void. It appeared that I was stuck on some life-long chapter that was going nowhere. It didn’t seem to have any kind of evolving story with a beginning, middle or end. It was like I was reading the same paragraph of my life over and over, day after day, year after year.

During this period, I realized that I, too, was programmed to run blind and stay within the rigid social ruts like everyone else around me. However, a low tolerance threshold within ignited a spark of rejuvenation. My journey to study success and wealth psychology had begun.
