Description

YOU HAVE TO LET GO.
So many of us make decisions because we feel like we have to do something.
Whether it’s the religion we grew up in, what our parents want, or what we feel is culturally acceptable, we often betray ourselves.
But you can only live this way for so long before you start to break down.
You’ll lose sight of who you are and suddenly realize you don’t know how to find it.
It’s a lonely feeling.
For me, this point came after I got injured in football. I was forced to look at my decisions and figure out what I wanted.
On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about spirituality, relationships, and mental health with one of the most successful musicians of all time: Dan Reynolds.
Dan Reynolds is the lead singer of Imagine Dragons and a recipient of the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award.
He shares how he had a crisis of faith after being raised Mormon. He almost divorced his wife and left everything behind. But he was able to make some changes and find himself again.
So get ready to learn how to stop living a people-pleasing life and stay true to yourself on Episode 890.
