The Truth About Things That Suck

The Truth About Things That Suck

Welcome! I'm Mindy Henderson, motivational speaker, author and coach. Living life from a wheelchair, surviving 2 devastating car crashes, lost jobs, and a host of other challenges, I have learned to navigate the curve-balls life throws at us, and now, my mission is to bring positivity to the world, to teach others how to navigate adversity well, to stop making excuses, and to see all they are truly capable of. Because…the truth about things that suck, is that…they suck. They won’t be fun, but it’s possible to have two truths that coexist at the same time…the 2nd truth is that there is a lot we can learn, a lot we can do and a lot of gifts that the sucky things bring to our lives and that empower us to make the world better. This podcast is a tool I’ve created to help us uncover those sucky, but surprisingly beautiful circumstances.
