Tracy was born in Canada to a family that struggled financially and had very few
luxuries in life. He was a high school drop out and started his career as a
laborer, working in several physically demanding jobs during his teenage years.
When Brian Tracy turned twenty, he left Canada to travel the world like he had
always dreamed of. After driving to North America he got a ship to England and
then cycled to France, Spain, and Gibraltar. Tracy also drove through the harsh
and sometimes life threatening Sahara Desert with a couple friends, and
eventually settled in Johannesburg, South Africa for two years where he worked
and lived. After briefly returning to London to work, Tracy travelled through
areas of Europe, Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, India, Malaysia, and Singapore. He then
spent a further 2 years working and living in Thailand, Asia.
The 8 years of travel and adventure molded the life of Tracy. He worked with the
famous Dr. Albert Schweitzer, experienced life and death situations, and trained
with martial arts experts to gain his black belt in Shotokan Karate. Tracy has
since travelled to more than 80 countries throughout the world.
