A rising soccer star turned paraplegic, our guest on today’s episode is the epitome of perseverance and growth mindset.
Lenny sustained a spinal cord injury after a botched surgery attempt to remove a tumor leaving him with no feeling in his lower body and no control over his bodily functions.
This would be a death sentence to most, but Lenny used this as an opportunity to grow as a person mentally, spiritually, and in career. He was able to look beyond the physical and saw the big picture lesson that he felt he desperately needed to be taught.
Lenny’s life was anything but run of the mill. Dealing with drug, sex, and party addictions, he knew he was leading a life to nowhere but couldn’t make the change necessary, until the universe did it for him.
Join us in today’s episode to hear a vulnerable, raw, and uncut story of how someone’s life was flipped upside down and the power in finding the silver lining.
