231: Sean Ackerman: A Man Who Whistles Showtunes When The World Is Moaning

Sean-AckerrmanTodays guest was kind enough to have me as a guest on his amazing new online show “You Leading You” awhile back, and it was clear in the conversation that we are almost the same person.

We have such similar backgrounds, inspirations, talents, that we are almost brothers separated by a vast expanse of water called the Atlantic.

He has been a corporate guy for many years, and has worked at climbing up the ladder of success, rung by rung, and like so many got to a position when he realised that he didn’t like the climb.

He didn’t like the fact that he was climbing a ladder, which at anytime could be pushed over, and leave him plummeting downwards.

So he took action, imperfect action which is always the best, and started taking control of his life.

This is a great tale of persistence, with many dots that show how he went from being homeless to an inspirational coach, speaker and host of a super popular podcast….with a heartattack being thrown into the mix too.

So how did he take the decision that was required to start building a life under his own terms?

And why did one conversation with a boss, that he didn’t see eye to eye with, literally throw paraffin onto the passions that were simmering deep within him.

Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only brother from another mother….Mr Sean Ackerman

 Show Highlights

During the episode we discussed such weighty topics such as:

How he went to California as a young man and lived the party life, but knew that it was time to close the door of that lifestyle and move forward to becoming who he is day.

How he was in Disneyworld in 2011 when he received notice that his house had been hit by a flood. He realised that he had a choice to make….and he decided to enjoy the last three days of his vacation before facing the ruin.

How he recognised that he had greater and greater inner strength as he tackled challenges in his life, and consistently moved forward in the direction that he wanted.

How he knew that he had to assess how he was operating on a daily basis once a stress related incident hit him at work….and shares how he did just that.

And lastly…..

Why he believes that we have to decide what we want most in our heart, and aim to leave our legacy whilst on this great earth of ours.
