Broken or Blessed? The MINDSET to Get to the Other Side

Yoo-hoo. It’s me TD and I hope your Tuesday is off to a fantastic start. Shake off the cobwebs from a long weekend and let’s get rockin’ & rolling. Some of you did “The Murph” yesterday and are feeling the pain today. Haha. Let’s GOOOOO!!!

First off, thank YOU. So much incredible feedback on last week’s podcast Episode #303. Man, I just have to say thank you. I didn’t know if I wanted to share all that. Now I’m glad I did as the feedback has been off-the-charts.

As the “Reinvention Series” draws close to the end, I have another strong one for you today. I’m excited for you to listen in. While I have been sharing that 2020-2022 were “three years of hell” in many ways, today’s episode #304 unpacks how it all ended, the mindset that got me through it, and the ONE THING that I learned from all this, and that I will take to the grave someday…

So let’s dive-in and I hope you enjoy “Broken or Blessed”:

Broken or Blessed? The MINDSET to Get to the Other Side | Ep. 304 [Reinvention Series]

Here is what you will hear on Ep. 304:

  • Why I didn’t feel completely fulfilled in 2022 and what to do when your soul is not singing like you want and you know there is an even deeper level of significance you want to create.
  • Why I took a GM role for a professional indoor football team and the greatest lesson I learned from that debacle.
  • Another knee surgery to clean-up the mess that was created from partial knee replacement in 2020 that didn’t heal properly because of not rehabbing/moving the way I needed to because of my back injury.
  • MINDSET through uncertainty and my mindset now after enduring through a three year “battle.”
  • Top Lessons learned through a difficult time that will help you in the best of times and the worst of times.
  • How my faith in God carried me through the last three years and despite many times feeling broken, empty, lost, and even sometimes depressed, why I never felt alone.
  • Why my faith even further deepened in the midst of darkness.
  • The people and support networks who made a great difference in the last few years that allowed me to get through the mess.
  • Why COACHING and IMPACT is my life and why I love hearing from our listeners who are wanting to go deeper, do more soul-searching, and who are willing to battle through thick and thin to KEEP GOING!
  • The ONE THING that I learned from all this and that I will take to the grave someday…

Again, thank you. My heart is full of gratitude and appreciate you listening and sharing.

Next week I will do a “Q&A” episode stemming from episodes 301304. But I am recording that TODAY. Please see below on best way to do that.

Thanks again for tuning in and let’s create a GREAT week.

Much love, many blessings, and keep that MINDSET STRONG!
