This episode of the #SPOHNTRAINED Personal Development Podcast is a truly unbelievable, victory story. Javier Heredia is an extraordinary young man with a HUGE heart.
Have you ever felt like you were “hit by a truck?” Maybe you drank too much the night before, and when you wake up you, you used that phrase? Well, after listening to this episode, you might think twice before you repeat those words. Javier was hit by a garbage truck and dragged for several blocks while he was out with friends one night. He honestly shouldn’t even be alive. With the amount of hardware he has in his body now, it’s amazing he does not have quadriplegia.
Javier is an airline pilot, and although he does live with some pain in his life, he can work and function as a part of a healthy society. Nick and Javier talk through the mental strength he has had to develop over the years to come through something like this, and not live a bitter life on the other side.
This episode will help you unpack the thought of “why me?” As humans, we are not perfect, and we will never be perfect. However, Javier gives us some tools, especially using humor, to live a happy life, despite things that are outside of our control.
Get ready to be inspired!
