Greg Lindberg creates YouTube videos to empower prisoners and others dealing with life’s issues, based on his book 633 Days Inside

DURHAM, North Carolina, September 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — What kind of person goes to jail for a wrongful conviction and finds it the most positive transformational experience of their life?

Such a person is Greg Lindberga Yale graduate whose billion-dollar business was left to others when he was convicted of bribery in North Carolina in 2020. Given a seven-year sentence that was overturned by the Fourth Circuit of appeal nearly two years later, he never knew, day to day, how long he would have to serve, so he applied everything he knew and could learn to get out of prison better. personally.

When Lindberg reported to FPC Montgomery in Alabama, he left the “free world” (a prison sentence) and went “inside” determined to make the best of what could be a horrible situation for anyone. His story of incarceration, survival and triumph is shared in the new book, 633 Days Inside: Lessons in Life and Leadership.

Now, in an effort to help anyone concerned about overcoming the harrowing struggles of prison life, Lindberg is offering a series of videos on YouTube. These 15-minute testimonials explain the concepts and methods that gave him such an advantage as a prisoner.

Lindberg left behind young children when he was taken into custody. While Montgomery, he must have missed his father’s funeral. There were other great disappointments, but he soon discovered that the principles he shared in his first book, Fail Early and Fail Often: How to Turn Adversity into Advantage, were directly applicable to his new situation. The other inmates were eager to hear any wisdom he shared. He found that most of them, unlike him, entered plea deals because they lacked the means to fight their accusers in court.

Lindberg promised, when released, to give as many people as possible an education that would turn losers into leaders and help anyone improve their health and confidence. Although he cleaned the toilets on his first day inside, as well as on his last day, Lindbergh followed the rules and returned to the free world determined to tell everyone how he used the science of hormesis to achieve a breathtaking physical and mental evolution.

“Hormesis is a fancy word for what makes you stronger,” he says in his first video. “We all know that the concept of what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. But a lot of things, if done in excess, will kill you. Do at a moderate level, they will make you stronger. It’s a a key part of why being inside has been the most positive and transformative experience of my life.”

A federal prisoner who makes disclosures that greatly benefit others is nothing new. Robert Stroudmade famous in the 1962 film The Birdman of Alcatraz, was allowed to keep a collection of birds and cages in his isolation cell, where he conducted experiments with sick birds and discovered a cure. Stroud became an expert on bird diseases and published a book on the subject. Unlike Lindberg, Stroud was guilty, but the man illustrated that focus and determination can transform anyone when insight and determination are consistently applied.

At FPC Montgomery, Lindberg’s diligence with any assignment led to him receiving a job assignment promotion teaching goal setting and career planning to his fellow inmates. On a more personal level, he learned all about intermittent fasting and intensive training. Freed from the constant buzzing distractions of the instruments of our electronic world, his mind became much clearer and his concentration was honed to a razor-sharp intensity.

As his legal team worked to prove that Lindberg’s Fifth Amendment and Sixth Amendment rights had been violated during his original trial, he embarked on a self-care regimen that surprisingly caused his hair to turn red again. gray on his temples and forearms. He walked out of prison in the best shape of his life, looking at least ten years younger.

He described the process by which prison gave him the discipline to practice intermittent fasting: “I turned 52 this year and I feel like I’m 25. I have never felt better, slept better, and never had better memory and physical strength. . Most think the whole prison experience is terrible. But the truth is that it made me stronger. I never would have had the discipline to do this fasting routine if I hadn’t come to prison. Many recent medical journal articles show that when you fast for more than 48 hours, your body repairs age-related damage (via autophagy) and generates new tissue for your brain, skin, and muscle (via mitochondrial biogenesis). In addition, after 48 hours of fasting, your body produces 20 times the level of brain-derived neurotropic factor (BDNF), which creates new brain cells and synaptic connections via neurogenesis. I can now remember the names of employees from 20 years ago. My flexibility has improved to the point where I can now touch my toes which I was never able to do. I’m also gaining muscle mass for the first time in my life.”

Lindberg was inspired and supported by his cellmates, who served up regular doses of wisdom from the streets. Now he says, “If you help an inmate through a bad day, he’ll be there for you when your bad day comes.”

With his new YouTube videos, Greg Lindberg wants to help “cellies” everywhere, and people in general, to have better health and a better life. Customers can find the print and ebook of 633 days indoors on Amazon and other major outlets. Through its website Lindberg also plans to make digital copies available to any inmate currently incarcerated or a family member. And his company, Global Growth, has a stated policy not to turn away potential employees because of a criminal conviction.
