Ep4 Terry Tucker

Motivational Speaker and Author.

It's well-reported that negative attitudes toward aging cause people to react more negatively toward daily stressors. In contrast, having positive views toward aging is associated with "higher levels of life satisfaction, better self-rated health, improved social networks, and better well-being.” But how much control do we really have over our mindset when obstacles appear to be challenging us?

Today's guest… Motivational speaker Terry Tucker, says that the one thing he learned during all his pain and suffering was that you have two choices. You can succumb to discomfort and misery, or you can learn to embrace it and use it to make you a stronger and better human being. When his own life changed after a cancer diagnosis lead to his foot being amputated, and later his leg, he came to understand that the responsibility for altering your life is entirely up to YOU.

So are you stuck in a cycle of fear and negativity about all the changes that come with getting older? Fear of losing your identity after retirement and becoming invisible and invalid? Fear of the body changes and health issues? Fear of death and a sense of time running out?  And so on and so on….

If so… Stick around, because Terry Tucker is going to help you move from discomfort to resilience, using a system he developed, called the 4 Truths,…Terry Tucker is a motivational speaker, author, and international podcast guest on the topics of mindset, motivation, and self-development. He is the author of the book Sustainable Excellence, Ten Principles To Leading Your Uncommon and Extraordinary Life, he was a marketing executive, a hospital administrator, a SWAT Team Hostage Negotiator, a high school basketball coach, and most recently ….a cancer warrior

The 4 truths

1. Controlling your mind, so it doesn’t control you. 2. Embracing pain and difficulty and using it to make you a stronger and more determined individual. 3. Understanding that what you leave behind is what you weave in the hearts of other people. 4. Remember that as long as you don’t quit, you can never be defeated.
