Today’s guest entrepreneur following the words of Steve Jobs, on the top rated Join Up Dots podcast interview is a man who has been on a terrible journey to get to where he is today.
At least in my perspective it looks that way, but perhaps in classic Join Up Dots fashion perhaps it was all these things that were needed to be experienced to make him who he is now.
To build his current level of business success from nothing to amazing.
As he says in his own words ” As a small boy I had been violently and repeatedly raped from the age of three to around eight years old.
Which left me feeling completely empty.
So full of shame, it was incredibly difficult for me to feel safe or trust anybody at all.
In fact, to deal with this trauma, my brain almost split into multiple personalities so that I could detach and protect myself when I was being seriously abused.
As you might imagine, I turned to drugs and alcohol to mask the pain, trying drugs as early as seven years old.”
By his late teens and early 20’s, it had gotten so bad that he was in and out of jails, institutions, halfway houses and he ended up homeless, and living on the streets.
He was failing at everything, his entire life was a mess and after all he’d been through, he had every reason to hate the world.
But he finally realized if he didn’t change, he was going to die.
This is when he developed a simple mindset shift that changed everything.
He realized that for a long time it was his mindset that had been the biggest problem he faced.
In that one moment, he changed his very identity, and what happened next was incredible.
And that is where we will begin today’s episode, and this is going to be a great one, as today’s guy has since seen incredible success, and is literally changing the world everyday.
So does he see that the things he spends his days doing were always in him, or was it because of his history that he found the skills that he loves sharing?
And does he feel that the mindset people have is the number one reason why so many keep themselves small?
Well lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots with the one and only Mr Rob Scott.
