Episode #38 - Near-Death Mindset with Dave, Interviewed by Sean Sechrist, Host of the Unbeaten Path Podcast

Episode #38 Summary:

We've changed things up a little for this week! Sean Sechrist, Founder and Host of the Unbeaten Path Podcast, had me on to talk about my near-fatal experience in Boston from 2005. We cover a lot of topics, including:

  • Not letting one experience define you
  • Finding your psychological safety zone
  • Dave’s near-death experience
  • Healing and recovering from the stabbing
  • Started a business out of school but initially failing
  • Moving past societal pressures and helping people find what it is to be alive for them
  • Finding the right diet through trial and error
  • Putting yourself in the proper environments to thrive

Enjoy this week, where the tables have been turned on me, as I delve into my personal experiences and journey:

Not trying is the only failure that exists.
— Dave Nelson
