Sean Douglas is a U.S. Air Force veteran, TEDx speaker, Master
Resilience Implementer, Suicide Awareness trainer, Performance
Enhancement expert, international radio show host, and
Considered an“Iconof Influence
in the New Media Space,” Sean hosts the popular live online radio
show, Life Transformation Radio which is heard in over 58 countries
and has thousands of weekly listeners.
His journey to get to where he is now was not short and
straightforward, though, and today, he will share with us how, from
rock bottom, he climbed his way out of the darkest moment in his
life--unlocking his true potential
in the process.
Contrary to what you’d expect from a speaker, Sean shares that
he was not born outspoken. In fact, he bottled up a lot of things
while growing up. It wasn’t until he joined the Air Force and
became a drill instructor that he realized that he has a lot of
things to say, and he credits that experience with awakening his
passion for speaking and training.
Sean mentions that people who want to become public speakers
often ask him how to get booked for a gig. He said that this is a
good question, but the better one should be:“Whyshould I speak to other people?” Ask yourself
what message you want to send out and what you want the people who
received them to do afterward.
Sometimes, we get so consumed with projecting the right image
or thinking about the right things to say that the message that we
are trying to convey get lost along the way. Sean understands this,
but he encourages people to keep things simple.“Letthe mess of your life be the message and the
tests that you’ve gone through be your testimony.”
Sean has come a long way from that dark period in his life
when he used to abuse alcohol and made a suicide attempt, but he’s
quick to emphasize that his life is not a success story.
He admits that he still struggles with a lot of things;
however, what makes his story different from others’ is that
whenever he encounters difficulties, he doesn’t give up; he gets
pissed--and it gives him the
determination to keep trying and trying.
Yourself With Other People
We all have someone that we look up to, even him, according to
Sean; however, he cautions us to stop comparing ourselves with
other people because we are walking down different paths. If we
keep on counting other people’s blessings, we might end up losing
sight of ours.
Adopt an Attitude of
“Every moment is a teachable moment,” Sean says. That’s why
it’s up to us to find meaning in the things that happen to us no
matter what they may be.“Ifyou have
an attitude of gratitude, you start to see the blessings in
