In this episode we are speaking with Motivational Speaker/Author, Jason Pike. A decorated combat veteran with multiple deployments, LT. Col. Jason Pike, served 31 years in the US Army including nine years overseas in five countries. Jason earned over 30 service awards & badges and his diversity of Army jobs, assignments, and schools from age 17 to 48 sets this military memoir up differently than most. With a straightforward account of one man’s journey, he inspires audiences nationwide and shows how to be resilient and to persevere no matter what disadvantages and life struggles may happen

In this episode we discuss:

1) Some low points in Jason’s story, overcoming osteomyelitis, being identified as having a learning disability, many challenges during his 31 years in the army and how he continued to move forward, not quit, build his grit, perseverance and persistence.

2) The vulnerable experience of writing his book, sharing his story and what his body physically and physiologically experienced with releasing these stories and trauma that his body had held onto for years. It shows the power of our emotions and how sharing a vulnerable story is also a way to release them.
