MasterMind Mentor Coach — Mark Johnson
Coach Mark Johnson has been an avid student of personal development for over 29 years. At a particularly low point in his young adult life, he was “transformed” by his exposure to the messages of Earl Nightingale and Denis Waitley. Through this encounter, Mark changed the course of his life and the lives of the people who loved him. He has personally encountered what the ancient wisdom has often called the “dark night of the soul”- and came out stronger on the other side. Mark’s personal mission now is to provide tools, guidance and insights to anyone who may be experiencing his or her own “dark night.”
Mark was born and raised in a small farming community in Northern California where farm life gave him a love of nature, an appreciation of hard work and determination.
During his junior year of high school, a rare genetic condition took away 80% of Mark’s vision, leaving him in desperation and despair, barely able to cope with what felt like a harsh and permanent sentence. His dreams, his independence, his plans for the future seemed suddenly no longer possible. In order to deal with this crisis Mark ventured into the dark side, falling into a life of alcoholism and drug addiction. For 10 long years he lived his life in a pattern of self-destruction until finally hitting rock bottom and reaching out for help. While in a treatment facility, he was introduced to two tape series: “Lead the Field” by Earl Nightingale and Denis Waitley’s “Psychology of Winning”. Something sparked inside, brought Mark back to life, and started him on a journey into the field of personal development that has never ended.
Mark has completely turned his life around, knowing that his own crushing life experience has given him the tools, experience and commitment to help people through their own difficult periods in their lives. Mark is a graduate of Bob Proctor’s Life Success and Consulting Program and Jeffrey Howard’s MasterMind Mentor Coaching Academy in addition to having nearly three decades of study and personal application of the concepts and ideals of living a full, satisfying and happy life.
