From Fed Up to Fired Up— How to Stop Settling and Start Succeeding with Mills Rodgers

We’ve all had those moments where we reach our breaking point— where the frustration and fatigue boil over until we’re fed up with our situation and ready for a change. But too often, that feeling of dissatisfaction doesn’t drive us forward— it holds us back as we dwell on what’s not working instead of focusing on solutions. The truth is, being fed up is meaningless unless it motivates us to meaningful action. 

This week, Daniel is joined by Mills Rodgers, a former teacher of 15 years who has built a successful speaking career focused on inspiring educators and students. Sick of facing rejection without result, he harnessed his hunger and drove Uber while teaching to chase bigger dreams. Now an in-demand motivator, Mills proves how swapping complaints for courage can transform a life. 

Listen in as Mills gets real about the financial struggles and personal challenges he overcame to chase his dreams and how a broken-down car led to an unexpected blessing that fueled his launch as a motivational speaker. Daniel and Mills also talked about the discipline, decisions, and desperation required for success, how to unwrap problems to find blessings, not letting rejection define you, and more! 

“Success is in 3D. You have to have discipline, which is doing the right things consistently. You have to make the right decisions, choices, and you got to be desperate, you got to want it bad.” —Mills Rodgers
