May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and this time I want to give back.
April 29, 2015, was when I hit rock bottom. I was taking a bunch of sleeping pills, not wanting to wake up. I was addicted to drugs and alcohol, riddled with pain and suffering, and I wanted to give up. Just a few years earlier, I was the vice president of one of the largest corporations in North America, and by society’s standards, I was successful.
I had the car, the wife, the house, the company, the credit card, and the nice vacations. However, I didn’t know how to deal with stress, so I numbed out with drugs and alcohol. Needless to say, it was not sustainable, and I lost everything. Thankfully, with the help of God and the love of my family, I was able to get the help I needed.
Today, I celebrate eight years of sobriety, and as I look back, the constant theme throughout my journey is that I’ve always had a few key people to rely on, to confide in, and to work through, not around, my shame, fear, resentment, trauma, and limiting beliefs.
“April 29, 2015, was my rock bottom.”
These are the people I could call and say, “Man, I’m struggling. Can you help?” But this story isn’t just about me. It’s about you. You are the hero of your story, and here we are in May, Mental Health Awareness Month. Being of service is a top core value of mine, which is why I’m offering free coaching calls throughout the entire month of May to give back because I want to be that person for you.
Our mess becomes our message, and our greatest struggle becomes our superpower. Our rock button can become a huge asset to empower, support, and serve others, using our roadmap to give to others and help them take that first step.
I’m here to help you work through, not around, whatever’s getting in the way of you being your best self. You were not meant to just survive—you were meant to thrive. You were meant to live a life of maximum success, significance, and fulfillment, and I want to help you get there.
