David joins me today to discuss embracing your faults and fighting your inner uphill battles. He shares the day he got a major injury and how it affected the way he lived his life as well as his relationship with the people around him. He discusses some of his lowest points and how he managed to rise up. He also explains the importance of having a positive mindset and how it can help propel you to success as well as describes the day he was able to forgive himself and how his life changed for the better.

“When I started forgiving me for not being enough, I was filled with love and gratitude.” - David Schwendiman
