"In the movie, A Few Good Men, there’s that famous one-liner from Jack Nicholson when he says, ‘You can’t handle the truth!’ It’s true, most people can’t handle the truth that they were handed a difficult path in life. But it’s important to find ways to push through, and find the help needed to cope."

John Callas knows what it is like to go through depression, trauma, and an attempted suicide. In this episode, he discusses how to change your point of reference by getting out of your depression comfort zone while understanding how getting past anger can help you open up to those who are truly looking out for your best interests. He advocates belief in yourself and healing self-inflicted issues that hold you back. Confidence led him to success and freedom...a life he thought only existed in movies.

A veteran writer, director, and producer in the entertainment industry, John Callas has worked on dozens of motion picture trailers, international commercials, live action titles, and laser disc projects, a documentary shot on location in Russia, as well as having been the Worldwide VP for The Walt Disney Company while working at a large post-production facility.
