When Terry Tucker's name comes to mind, the word motivational pops up immediately. Not only has Terry reinvented himself on a professional and personal level many times over his life he has also had to fight for his life against a rare form of cancer called Acral Lentiginous Melanoma, and continues to do so today.
Terry shares in his bio, "One thing I learned during all my pain and discomfort is that you have two choices. You can succumb to the debilitating distress and misery, or you can learn to embrace it and use it to make you a stronger and more resilient human being. I chose the latter. Make no mistake, there were times I felt so poorly and was in so much agony that I prayed to die. Each day was a struggle to use my mind to override my body's apathy and distress. I realize pain and discomfort can beat you to your knees and keep you there if you let it. But I also came to appreciate that I could use my hurting and anguish to harden my mind and make me more resolute. I was no better at dealing with pain and discomfort than the next person. But every day, I found a way to survive, with the knowledge that I would need to do it again the following morning."
His driving passion is sharing what he has learned between his decade battle with cancer and his diverse professional background to encourage and support anyone his words touch to know that they are not alone, no matter what they are struggling against. Through this trial of fire, Terry has come to live by the Four Truths and Ten Values of Sustainable Excellence which he shares in this episode, on his website, and throughout his book Sustainable Excellence, Ten Principles to Leading Your Uncommon and Extraordinary Life.
