When Scott was in Guatemala, he noticed that despite how little families had over there, they were happy, smiling and grateful.

When he returned home, he noticed that we often take for granted what we do have, and complain about what we don’t have.

That’s when Scott decided to do something about it and wanted to get the kids in Guatemala involved!

So he partnered with Pencils of Promise, a nonprofit organization that builds schools in developing countries.

The kids that have had a Pencils of Promise School built for them were so grateful to have their new classrooms, that they wanted to do something to give back!

And that’s how "Say It With Gratitude" was born.

31. TB 34: Tanner Gers
http://thrivingbeyond.libsyn.c... download (audio/mpeg, 53.41Mb)


Meet Tanner Gers, Tanner shares his story of perseverance through four brain surgeries after a severe car wreck that gave him more than hope but the courage to keep going when most would give up much less inspire them to graduate college and pursue Olympic dreams and business ventures.

“Why is the wrong question, start asking yourself what?”

Tanner was an All-American kid growing up, excelling in school and sports, but On March 28, 2004, this All-American life should have ended during a tragic auto accident. That day, a tree shot through Tanner’s windshield, causing a traumatic brain injury, fracturing his spinal column, blowing his eye out of the socket, leaving a massive hole in his face and skull, and even with his brain exposed to the air, Tanner miraculously survived. While emergency services wrote Tanner off, he fought over 75 minutes until he made it to the hospital. His situation worsened when 19 days later, he woke up from surgery totally blind.

The biggest tragedy in Tanner’s life wasn’t losing his sight. It was not taking every day by the horns and living life to the fullest like he does today. Since coming out of that life storm, Tanner has graduated from college, started business ventures in food service, sales, health, and fitness, consulting, professional speaking, and has been featured in media outlets such as SportingNews.com, CEO Powercast, Superhuman Entrepreneur, and Unstoppable Success Radio. Holding a degree in Business, he consults and speaks for corporate, educational, and organizational clients to improve performance, leadership, health, and bottom line results. Giving back and supporting the community is a high priority for Tanner, which is why he has worked with disabled youth and adults through various organizations such as Easter Seals, the Foundation for Blind Children, US Veterans Affairs, and Wounded Warriors.

While Tanner has been building businesses, he’s also been building himself as an athlete. His athletic achievements  include being the 2011 Para Pan American gold medalist, 2012 US Paralympic trials gold medalist, 2012 Paralympian, and a 2013 World Championship team member in track and field, 2-time National Beep Baseball Association World Series Offensive MVP, and 5-time Offensive All-Star, as well as the 2015 US National Champion in track cycling.

This online one stop shop provides support groups, partnerships, Medical Teams, webinars, survival stories, and other resources to any Veteran looking for support and assistance with coping with PTS.

PTSFaces.tv was created from Ms. Jackson’s own experiences as a survivor of PTSD and the stories of other Veterans challenged with their condition. Four tours of duty in some of the worst war zones required Ms. Jackson to compartmentalize her emotions. Re-bandaging charred bodies as she inhaled the smell of burned skin and watching injured soldiers with amputated limbs emerge from helicopters were a part of her daily work. After the bombing in Afghanistan of her building in 2011, which caused her to live in fear for six months, Ms. Jackson ultimately retired. When she returned, she was haunted by the memories from her deployments and suffered from increased anxiety. Soon after, Ms. Jackson was diagnosed with PTSD. With a few months on prescribed medication, continued exercise, and her will to conquer PTSD, Ms. Jackson stands today as a PTS Survivor ready to help her fellow Veterans combat PTSD.

Passionate about helping others and determined to make a difference, helping other war veterans overcome the challenge and the stigma of PTSD has become Cherissa Jackson’s new legacy and mission.  This spring, Ms. Jackson will release her much-anticipated book, At Peace: Powering Through My Pain, where she shares seven powerful principles for coping with PTSD and trauma. 

Ms. Jackson is also is a proud mother of 2 beautiful twin daughters.

COMMITMENTS VS. DECISIONS What's the difference?

Having a commitment to you the listeners of creating a podcast episode each week is a MUST.

Having a commitment of publishing my book this year, is another MUST.

Commitment takes conviction and conviction can spark a movement.

The conviction of M.L.K. Gandhi, Mother Theresa, and Nelson Mandela has sparked movements to liberate the oppressed.

Conviction plus unwavering action is proof commitment exists.

Decisions fall stale and can waver into indecision and procrastination

But committed action and unwavering conviction can change the world

On thing I love about the TED talks and independent TEDx platform is their mission:

"ideas worth spreading that change the world.”

They’re committed to changing the world one powerful idea at a time.

decisions are small micro-steps, rungs on the daily ladder,

Commitment is the ladder we’ve chosen to climb and that ladder is our lifestyle

Commitments pull us and decisions when not backed by commitment can slowly allow indecision to creep in.
