In this episode, Lance and David Wilkinson talk about how his paradigm shifts made him who he is today, and how we can make a difference in the lives of many by first finding and living our purpose. 

David grew up in southern Missouri in her grandmother’s house with his cousins. He went through a tough time when he was 15 when his mother left him and his disabled father. This was also the time when he fell into a drug addiction. He experienced a paradigm shift one day when he almost accidentally shot his dad during a drug induced hallucination. After this, he reached out to his school counselor where received some powerful advice: “David, if you want to change yourself, you either need to change your playmates or change your playground”. He moved to Oklahoma after that and worked on a farm, eventually getting into the oil and natural gas industry. While there, he finally recovered from his drug addiction and learned to value hard work. After getting laid off by his boss in 2014, he had another paradigm shift that started his spiritual journey into figuring out who he is and how he can make a radical change in his life.

Today David Wilkinson is as a self employed affiliate marketer / direct salesperson of Enagic. He is an authority in the online space, specializing in entrepreneurship, sales and Facebook space. Currently going on his 3rd year on this platform, he has made millions in sales and has a massive networking team of over 1,000 people so far.

David tells listeners: “When something bad happens, the universe is telling you it's time for something different, or you need to adjust and learn from the lesson and then keep moving, because if you don't, how can you continue succeeding and growing?”
