Bruce was abusive to himself while dealing with multiple traumas and hardships in his life. He has gone through two bankruptcies, the loss of his daughter shortly after her birth, divorce from a wife who was battling with schizophrenia and, most recently, stage 4 prostate cancer.
Effects of the traumatic experience:
Bruce had very low self-esteem, a negative self-talk and self-image, and was suicidal at his lowest point.
Overcoming the traumatic experience:
Running and training for a marathon was instrumental in helping Bruce turn his life around. Also, reading personal development books and keeping a gratitude journal.
What Bruce does today:
Bruce is an author, life coach, speaker, podcaster and dad to two boys.
Given what you know now, if you could go back to when you were going through the tough times and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
Bruce's Answer: Don't worry because you are enough.
