Do you want to hear how I found inspirational stories from people who overcame obstacles and became successful?
I will be sharing a few of the stories from my book, Take the Ride of Your Life in the next few videos.
Welcome to video #12 in the series Secrets from a Trainer How You Can Engage Your Audience.
Here’s David’s Inspirational Story
David, an accountant, related this story: “As a boy, I knew my father was proud of me. Unfortunately, he didn’t know how to show
There wasn’t a whole lot of positive attitude in my house,” David remembered. The dictum, “You must behave,” was drilled into him and his siblings time and time again.
“In school, I was the class clown. I couldn’t talk at home,” he said, “so, I had to express myself elsewhere.” David was around ten or eleven years old when he learned how to ride a bike. “Some friends taught me. I used a neighborhood boy’s bike: I didn’t have one of my own. I fell and got up again right away.
I felt good whenever I was on a bike as if anything was possible.” David’s wife has helped him focus on keeping a positive attitude.
Before they were married, she told him: “I won’t marry you if you become like your father.” Today, David is grateful. “I don’t want to
raise my kids the way my father raised me.”
