Not every experience in your life is a good one. In this episode, Lt. Col. Bill Riley (Ret.), author of the book "Baghdaddy: How Saddam Hussein Taught Me to be a Better Father" shares how both his childhood experiences - unstable and violent home, absent father and a mother who struggled with mental illness - and his military experience - witnessing the violence of war - shaped who he is today: a true asset to his community and more importantly, to his family.
Your past does not have to define you. Learn from it. Focus on the good of the moment. Plan for a great future. And be flexible.
In Bill's latest book, Baghdaddy, you'll be taken on a journey where you'll likely see parts of yourself and you'll understand that even the toughest assignments and roughest childhoods can be teaching moments.
