So many of us are looking to external circumstances to solve our problems. We blame all kinds of people, organizations, and outlets for our woes. Unfortunately, when we do that, we put ourselves at the mercy of factors outside of our control and are left feeling empty, hopeless, and powerless to improve our lives.
My guest today, Travis Howze, makes the case for creating your own light and learning how to create positive results in your life in spite of tragic and unfortunate circumstances you may have experienced. We talk about the delicate balance of shouldering pain and learning to let it go, going to “dark places” and emerging victorious, learning to be proud of who you are without being arrogant, finding powerful outlets for difficulties of life, and how to overcome feeling like a fake, fraud, or imposter on your path to growth.

My guest today is Travis Howze. Travis is a Marine Corps veteran, former police officer and firefighter, comedian, and international motivational speaker who has learned to harness his own difficulties of life to make himself a better man.
He’s also the author of, Create Your Own Light, where he outlines and documents his tragic experiences in combat and duty, fighting through the PTSD that resulted, finding powerful outlets for improvement, and healing himself along the journey.
Gents, I think you’re really going to enjoy this one, especially if you’ve got some past emotional, physical, or mental baggage you’re trying to let go of. Enjoy.
