The real deal

This is the first review I’ve ever written for a podcast. I’ve listened to Larry’s podcast for 4 years and finally joined the DEA 4 months ago. The content is always relevant, actionable, and at times raw. In a recent episode Larry gives more detail about a season of winter in his life where a knee injury cascaded a victim mindset. His detail and vulnerability hit me in the heart and I felt like he was speaking directly to me. I’m actually recovering from a shoulder injury and experienced some of the same challenges as Larry. The message was well received for me personally and helped remind me that we all have different struggles and have different capacities to deal with them. Health is foundational for me so I’m very sensitive to challenges around health. The message I’ve gotten from Larry and my time in the DEA is to do the proactive work to build resiliency. Also the lone wolf mindset doesn’t work. Find a good pack and lean into your pack. Be ready to have others lean into you. That’s how we thrive rather than just survive.
