Mike was told he wasn't smart enough or good enough by his teachers from around the ages of 8-10.
Effects of the traumatic experience:
This affected Mike's self-confidence and beliefs and impacted him for 25 years in all aspects of his life, including relationships and work.
Overcoming the traumatic experience:
Getting around the right people who believe in him, exercise, and allowing himself to not have to be perfect have helped Mike become more confident today.
What Mike does today:
Mike runs The Wellness Bucket to help people create daily health habits that allow them to feel and do their best. He also hosts monthly FitCamps in San Diego.
