A minute with Adonis Anastasiou Motivational Speaker and Business Coach


Where do you live?
I live in the center of the world (Nicosia) with my lovely wife and my little princess Fay!

Best childhood memory?
I have so many great memories as a child that is hard to choose from but riding my bicycle with a group of friends for hours, that is something that I miss.

Most frequented restaurant and absolute favourite dish? What food would you really turn your nose up to?
I really enjoy the food and the ambiance of Bennigans especially when I want to enjoy watching a football game without a pain in my neck later on. Their burgers make my mouth water even by just thinking of them. The only food that I dislike is green peas.

What did you have for breakfast?
Today I had corn flakes but usually I skip breakfast.

Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day out?
I used to be a night person but nowadays after an eight hour seminar it is hard to be a night person. The perfect day will be a day at the beach and then enjoying an exotic dinner with friends at a lounge bar looking over the sea.

Best book ever read?
Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins. It’s a life changing book that I strongly recommend to everyone who wants to bring success to his/her life. I like the part on mental training for achieving higher goals.

Favourite film of all time and why?
The Matrix is one of them because I believe that everything we get in our life is a manifestation of our minds. Matrix just nails that point.

Best holiday ever taken? What’s your dream trip?
One of my best holidays was a road trip from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City (Utah) passing through Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. My dream trip is to get lost in Japan or somewhere in the Far East.

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
At the moment I am listening to inspirational audio programmes while I am driving from town to town and from seminar to seminar because it helps me create new training material and at the same time focus on my own goals.

What is always in your fridge?
Yogurt, yogurt, yogurt.

Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
I just got my dream house after many years of struggle. It’s currently under renovation but finally I will have my own garden to relax in, and my own private studio to record my training videos.

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Grant Cardone. He is a crazy dude who really inspires me when I am listening to him. I like his motto “think big and act big”.

If the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would hug both my wife and child for all those 24 hours.

What is your greatest fear?
I embrace fear because it’s an indication of growth.

Tell me a joke…
Life is a joke. If you take it too seriously everybody else will laugh at you
