Have you ever heard of the phrase, “Boys make choices, men make decisions”? What’s the difference? On today’s episode, Duane speaks with Carlos Navarro, who has a 20-year entertainment career that spans from radio, television, and film, to commercials and video games. He has acted on shows and films as The Walking Dead, The Outsider, Unbreakable, and Marvel’s Hawkeye. Carlos is also co-host of the number one rated Orlando, Florida talk show, Monsters in the Morning.

Along with that journey, he was also struggling with alcoholism, until he finally made the decision to quit drinking. Listen in as Carlos walks us through his journey to sobriety and why he believes it’s a moral obligation to share his story to help others. Carlos is frank about his past experience of drinking where he was just oblivious to how he was and the impact he had on others. Then he finally realized he needed to change and do something different. Sobriety has now become a big part of his life as he also helps others who may be struggling. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Carlos’ addiction and recovery journey
  • Making a choice versus making a decision
  • The power of journaling and planning
  • Why willpower doesn’t work
  • Identifying the things you want and writing them down
  • The power of sharing your story.
