Managing Your Thoughts and Emotions
Today, Todd is a husband, father, and self-made business and life coach who learned how to turn guilt into joy by one simple action – letting go. He shares valuable life lessons as well as emotionally captivating stories that demonstrate how he took control of his emotions and began living his life more intentionally.
Guilt can lead to the emotional baggage that is carried with us every day if we don’t learn to let it go. That guilt can drain the joy from our lives and bring us to dark places. Recognizing this guilt and letting go of your baggage can help you start the healing process with not only yourself but your relationships with others as well.
Todd recalls the guilt he carried with him for 12 years of his life and how he hated the man he saw in the mirror. Through a family loss, emotional baggage, his journey to fame, and the life-changing words of Harvey Dorfman, Todd was able to abolish the guilt he carried with him and live a more intentional, thoughtful life.
