When life seems like it’s tearing us apart at the seams, the pain can be so overwhelming that we go numb. We feel like we’ve lost the game— that no one understands us and nothing we do will ever change our circumstances.
But that’s not true! Those are simply stories we tell ourselves— stories that are far from what’s real. We are capable of so much more than we think, and it’s not all about luck or fate—it’s about how we control how our life unfolds with true grit and grace.
In this episode, Daniel sits with Motivational Speaker and Best-Selling Author, Amberly Lago. Amberly has had her share of painful moments in life— abuse, loneliness, addiction, hopelessness, her husband’s unexpected surgeries, and the recent death of his father. But despite all that, Amberly continues to show up with courage and grace.
Listen in as Daniel and Amberly talk about the false beliefs we were led to believe about adversities and asking for help. They also share practical steps we can take to get out of the dark place, how we can boost our mood when we feel like doing nothing, how we can build trust and connection with our community, the benefits of having a strong second, and much more!
