In the Loop with Andy Andrews

The Toughest Mental Obstacle I’ve Faced

 

On this week’s episode, I answer a listener question about the toughest mental obstacle I had to cross after overcoming homelessness.

 

Has there been any point when I felt like hiding under the pier again?

  • I occasionally feel like crawling back under the pier.
  • I say that jokingly, but I really am very aware of where I am when I walk on that pier.
  • Living under the pier was undoubtedly the worst time in my life, but without that perspective I don’t think I would have become what I am today. 

 

Part of life is the struggle to think a certain way.

  • It’s not just to improve and increase your level of thinking.
  • We are all in the process of becoming.
  • The people who are humbly listening and learning from other people are the people with money and influence.

 

The toughest thing I had to do was distance myself from that pier.

  • I needed to get away from it with my thinking, choices, and actions.
  • Your thinking is the foundation of your success as a parent and member of your community.
