Being a parent isn't easy, and there are many landmines that can drop your self-confidence and self-esteem with one action. But understand that there is no perfection. Everyone is perfectly imperfect. So when you find yourself in a perceived lose/lose situation with your kiddo, you sometimes have to take a 30,000-foot view to find the successes. And that's exactly what I want to help you with here today. Finding success when you find yourself in lose/lose situations.
In this episode, we cover:
An example struggle which led to a lose/lose situation in my day.
The complexity of success and what it may look like.
The best tools and techniques can't always overcome this one thing.
A college and university environmental science graduate, Ray grew up in a toxic family and a toxic situation in Northern Ontario, Canada. As a result, he experienced the first of many PTSD events at age five, which would begin his nearly three-decade struggle with anxiety and depression.
Spending most of his life in survival mode without support, he eventually discovered and developed ways to overcome his struggles when nothing else worked.
With a passion for helping others, he made it his mission to help transform the lives and impact the worlds of eleven million people so they too can give their best to themselves, their loved ones, and their career.
An ancient Chinese proverb that Ray loves states, "To know the road ahead, ask those coming back." Ray is on the road back to offer you the support you need every step on your journey so that you, too, will be on the same road back. Ray believes that only those who've walked that road can truly understand the struggles that you go through.
Together, we will become the rising tide that lifts all boats.
Together, we are unstoppable.
In his off time, you can find Ray spending time with his daughter, reading books, watching hockey, and contemplating whether pineapple belongs on pizza.
