Life is going to throw curveballs at you, and that’s a given. The question is, how willing are you to withstand those?

On today’s episode, Duane talks with Andrew E. Guy, the author of Work Your Words: Finding Your Pathway to Personal Success. Andrew helps corporate leaders, professionals, and entrepreneurs integrate work, life, and self-care to improve well-being so they can pursue purposeful living. Andrew is a professional certified educator, an educational engagement expert, and is certified in the prevention and management of aggressive behavior. 

Today, Andrew is going to talk about his book, Work Your Words, specifically about resilience and stepping out of pain, hurt, and darkness to live your best life. With a contagious inspirational spirit, Andrew shares his incredible story of resilience that encourages people to take control of their lives and the life they’re meant to live. 

Andrew believes in the power of words. He believes that when you’re able to work the right words, the right things happen, and what you say about yourself makes a huge difference. You’re not living this life for yourself, because you’re actually living this life so you can help others to live and people will live through your experience.

In this episode, you will hear:

  • Unworthiness as a symptom of depression
  • Not your fault, but it’s your choice
  • Finding a community that will support your changes
  • The willingness to be vulnerable
