Difficult times are often a catalyst for change. And change can only come with action. There’s science to prove this and this week’s podcast guest discovered this for himself after a particularly difficult time.
Chris Castelino lost a friend to suicide in 2018, then just as he was reeling from this had a terrible bike accident with a long recovery. He spent years isolating and questioning his ability to help others.
Then, in 2021, Chris decided to take action. It was hope that got him to that point.
Chris’s perspective and desire to bring hope and support to others is inspiring and he’s leaned on the experiences of others to help. In this episode, we talk about what worked for him, why optimism is impossible without hope, and taking agency over making things better in your life.
I love Chris’s take on hope being a prerequisite for motivation and pursuing our goals. I couldn’t agree more. I hope you’ll tune in to this inspiring conversation!
