TYL #37: Surrendering Your Secrets, Overcoming Addiction, and Winning with Kris Simpson
Written by Tracy on 03 Nov 2016
Have you ever felt like a personal fraud?
Perhaps you were giving a friend relationship advice while your romantic life was falling apart. Or maybe you were offering your sister some assistance with her history homework when you refused to ask for help in economics. Or there was a time when you were asked to be on a panel about your success in business, but secretly, you were struggling to pay your own bills.
I've been there.
When I first started my business--coaching quarter-lifer's in their careers--I barely had enough to pay rent, eat beans, and keep up my appearance for my next meeting. Who was I to be giving someone advice? I was barely even happy most of the time, because not only could I barely take care of myself, but my situation made me feel like a personal fraud. Who was I to be giving advice when it seemed to be working out so poorly in my own life?
Our guest today has been there, too.
At one point in his life, Kris Simpson was a successful health, wellness, and fitness professional. He was a body-builder who had just won a national championship. He was a husband and had a life to be envied.
He was also... an addict.
As Kris says, "you're only as sick as your secrets."
Today, Kris is a decorated best-selling author and over 5 years sober. His life and business have completely changed. He lives honestly, authentically, and vulnerably, both personally and professionally. I had the joy and honor of interviewing Kris about his personal transformation and how embracing surrender, fighting fraud, and learning the true meaning of "winning" have made all the difference in his life and in the lives of those he teaches.
Without any further ado, I give you, Kris Simpson!
