Inspiration Through Tragedy

Many people feel they have the strength and toughness to get through anything life throws at them.  A true alpha can adapt and survive no matter what. 

Let me put you in a scenario…  You get hit by a car and have severe head trauma.  You finally get out of the hospital after spending 6 weeks in a coma and 3 1/2 months in the hospital.  You leave the hospita lto find you aren’t the same person mentally and physically.  You find yourself slipping into a depression and think the answer to fix it is alcohol.  Your last drink you pass out and probably shouldn’t wake up due to the excessive amount you had.  But luckily you do.  Do you continue down the dark path or do you find another outlet to deal with your emotions? 

Dan Cox, a true alpha, found his outlet.  FITNESS!  Check out Dan Cox’s inspirational interview!
