“People generally change in two different ways. It’s either they’re inspired or through pain and really the choice is up to you.”
This week’s guest is a little bit different from the type of guest I typically have on the show. Steve hasn’t traveled the world and can’t give tips on how to get free hotel stays or cheap flights.
What Steve can give is a powerful story about how living in the way he was supposed to live led to a life of drugs, alcohol, and a toxic marriage. Steve can also provide inspiration and be an example of how finally deciding to be true to yourself can transform you and provide you with your dream life.
“We can really create any kind of life we want. It’s just how much intention are you willing to put behind it?”
He also talks about how, even after going into recovery and getting out of a toxic marriage, he still wasn’t happy because of his job.
“My story and experience is much more valuable to the world and the universe than the software that I was writing. It wasn’t authentically me.”
Now that Steve is sober and the best father he can be, his new mission is to travel the world with his sons and inspire and help others to be true to their “authentic self.”
“I don’t care if I’ll have to swim across an ocean or dig under a mountain but I will get there and I want to bring them along with me …”
