I'M A DREAMER, ALWAYS HAVE BEEN, ALWAYS WILL BE.L. MONTE COOK IIIAKA Dr. Fantastic DR. FANTASTIC IS ON A WORLD TOUR PROMOTING THE PHILOSOPHY BY GIVING SPEECHES TO SCHOOLS, COMPANIES AND GOV'T AGENCIES. L.M.COOK III, THE FOUNDER OF BE FANTASTIC INTERNATIONAL WAS AFFECTIONATELY NICKNAMED DR. FANTASTIC BECAUSE HE HAS THE PRESCIPTION FOR A HAPPIER AND LONGER LIFE.
Ididn’t have any sense of normality in my childhood and have lived the most uncoventional life you can imagine. I was born on June 8, 1954 in Beverly Hills, California with the name Lester Monta Cook III a name I didnt know until I was ten, the year both my parents died, I thought my name was Monte Cook. I had three sets of parents, my biological ones, step parents and foster parents.
I rarely attended grammer school and Jr and Sr high school were an incredible struggle. College lasted 2 weeks. I received my education from the school of hard knocks, I entered that school at 17 years old when I decided to hitch hike around the world, I decided that would give me the education I needed and it did. I was convinced years ago to write my story and the book is entitled Lester’s Legacy and is sold on Amazon. The script based on the book received great praise with many Hollywood notables wanting to be in it including Gwyneth Paltrow and Roger Moore who has passed away. It’s a true Hollywood tale.
Three years ago after 64 years on the planet, World travel, working in 99 different fields and after 38 years of marriage I had an epiphany from the only dream I had in decades, to be a motivational speaker. I’ve been motivating people my whole life, employees, customers, my kids, everyone, so it made sense to me. With all those experiences I created the Be Fantastic Philosophy, formed the Be Fantastic International corporation and set out to make the world a kinder place as a philosopher, author, celebrity life coach and entrepreneur.
As I sing in my favorite song from Frank Sinatra, “I did it My Way” and still do.
My dream since 1980 after producing Ray Charles in concert at the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion on the occasion of his 50th birthday was to win the nobel peace prize. I created the Foundation for World Harmony, a 501C3 public benefit charity as a first step. Twelve years ago I created a charity for Veterans called Supporting our Servicemen. I never took donations from either, SOS was my gift to help and thank our Veterans.
My gift to the world now is the Be Fantastic Philosophy, four commitments which when followed will make you look better, feel better, live longer, do better in business and in personal relationships and make the world a kinder and better place for everyone. It has been proven to work. Hundreds of testimonials and thousands of Ambassadors of Positivity in 48 countries have attested to it.
A few situations occurred which made me decide to travel the world and share the Be Fantastic Philosophy. One was Covid, I was ordered to quarantine, two my marriage was not in a great place and three my kids were all grown with kids of their own so i thought It was a great time to hit the road, again. I gave up all material possesions and set out to travel the world.
I have been and want to continue to speak to schools, organizations and governments on how four commitments can change ones life and make the world a kinder and better place.FOUR COMMITMENTS
