In this episode: resilience, making good choices, letting go of limiting beliefs, attracting the energy you put out, and winning at life!

What would you do if you were given a terminal cancer diagnosis? While it might not be the first thing that comes to mind, if you’re able, the Boyd Dunleavey option is to develop a new positive outlook on life and the energy your omitting into the world, win your fight with cancer, and then proceed to run 11 marathons. Bad news comes to every single one of us, but how we process and handle that news is entirely up to us! Choose to handle it the right way, move forward with your life, and prioritize the things that matter to you. Despite what you may have been told, you have no idea where it could lead you ten years down the road!
