Opportunities occur out of adversity…

Doug WrightA survivor of a head on vehicle collision and passionate about helping people overcome their inner most fears, (especially when recovering from trauma). Doug lived to share his story and his motto is “never give up”. He loves what he does because it makes an immediate difference to people’s lives.They see possibility where once there was none.

When you look at the positive side of life instead of the negative your attitude changes. The challenges we face in our lives give us the resolve to authentically look at ourselves. We can’t do anything about yesterday, other than learn from it, we can’t do anything about tomorrow as it hasn’t arrived yet, all we can do is be creative about the NOW.
