One Year No Beer Podcast Episode 071 – In memory of our dear friend Sean Stephenson
This podcast is being reposted as a tribute to Sean, self-help author, therapist, and motivational speaker, who sadly died on Wednesday, August 28 2019, due to complications after suffering a head injury.
It can be easy to get sidetracked by your own fears, insecurities, and troubles. This may be especially true when you’re trying to accomplish something big, like giving up alcohol for a period of time. Without meaning to, you can begin to slide into negativity, allowing your fears and problems to take over and lapsing into unwanted behaviors or temptations.
It can be hard to bring yourself back up when you’re going through those dark times and experiencing negative emotions. But today’s guest has some ideas about how to bounce back, take care of yourself, and make a positive impact on the world around you.
Dr. Sean Stephenson was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, a condition that is otherwise known as brittle bone syndrome. By the time he was 18 years old, he had already broken over 200 bones in his body. He likes to say that he was given 24 hours to live by the doctors when he was born – but now, more than 30 years later, he’s the only doctor still alive.
In today’s interview, Dr. Stephenson talks about the importance of perspective and being able to bounce back from dark places. One way that he deals with challenges is by reaching out and helping people who are going through bigger challenges. He explains that helping people with their problems can take your mind off your own struggles.
Dr. Stephenson also shares the three factors of his unstoppable formula: impeccable self-care, self-purpose, and an empowering environment. He says these are the things that you need in order to overcome your insecurities, achieve your goals, and overcome your negative habits. Tune in to the episode to hear the whole inspiring interview.
