He's actually extremely wealthy, but his whole thing is 'mini vacations'. Eg, he'll work for about 2 months, then take a whole month to himself to use the money to enjoy life to the fullest-- while bouncing back completely.
Man he should really keep the head shaved all the way down these days, and stop it with the bug eyes. Also, stop using the hipster tone of voice with the super low pitch sentence endings. Let's get some more round, pear shaped tones in the voice there, guy.
yeah sure! hack #1: tell someone who is good at it to be close to you. hack #2: take a deep breath hold both your mouth and your nose closed and get underwater.When you get underwater inhale through your nose you will quickly find out that inhaling some water isn't that bad!Let's hope that the person you asked help from wants you alive! hack #3 repeat these steps until the fear of drowning goes away.

Modelling someone who can swim, and has the perfect form would be a good starting point.
Also, "imagined practice" could be great, if you for some reason shy away from actual water practice.
Vividly imagining doing something, is actually just as good for practicing motor skills, than physical practice.
I can't remember where, but I have seen studies that prove this. (think it was in psycho-cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz).

Hypnosis can do this very effectively.
If you actually knew anything about Tim Ferris, you'd realize that his biggest model is Seneca. The stoic philosopher-- and what is stoicism all about? Accepting what happens, and making the best of it. He's not a 'help you' guru, just because you didn't get what he's all about in this random 3 minute video with some strange lady. Try actually reading tools of titans and the tao of seneca before you judge him.
All you need to "make it", is Ability and NOT having anything catastrophic happening to you.
Even mentality is inherited. Science proves free will doesn't exist. I don't believe in magic, neither should you too. You are fighting the reality, because you need this belief to give you motivation. I don't need it. I am strong enough.
