Forging Ahead: Pushing Through Adversity

Justin Schenck-

When we think of success, how often do we consider the actual journey that is traveled to that success? It can be a bumpy ride. We usually need to go through the worst of times only to shine so brightly on the other side.

We all have challenges in life. We’ve felt the hurt and sadness that have taken us to those dark places. Going there creates an opportunity to grow. To learn from those moments. When we learn and apply those lessons, we find our potential to succeed.

Imagine being a struggling high school student, losing your mom to a 20 year opioid battle and having your dad in jail. My guest, Justin Schenck, went through these very traumatic events, BUT he took his experience of hitting rock bottom to do something incredible, to grow and turn his life around. To forge ahead and become a successful entrepreneur, speaker and the host of the top rated podcast “Growth Now Movement”.

“It’s the journey. It’s the things we learn along the way. It’s the shifts that we have to make when a we’ve succumb to our limiting beliefs. We also have to understand that if we have direction and we’re living in our purpose 100%, not only are we fulfilled today, we’re going to get to where we’re supposed to end up and that’s the important part. It’s really about pushing forward, continuously growing and having an understanding of what your purpose is.”

In today’s episode, I will be talking with Justin about:

  • Limiting beliefs and how to overcome them
  • What it takes to find balance with the 4 pillars of life
  • The power of we have within us

Justin’s powerful message has impacted millions of lives through his practice of gratitude and keeping balance in his life. This balance comes from focusing on the “4 Pillars of Life” and his method to overcome any Limiting Belief you might have.

I hope this is going to be one of those stand out episodes for you, I know it will be for me. Justin is a terrific example of someone who is well grounded and reaching for the stars and beyond. Using his gifts to inspire individuals all over the world, both on stage, and as a podcast host and guest.

You are on the right path. When you’ve decided you’ve hit that rock bottom moment, that moment that is pivotal in finding your happiness. That is the moment that defines us. Always remember, as hard as it may seem,  you are exactly where you are supposed to be in life. Get rid of those limiting beliefs and get the balance back. 

Now is the time to decide how you want your future to look.
