Your perspective on life can be your power or your prison. It can serve your anxiety, your stress, and your depression, or it can support your peace, your courage, and your growth. Trent Shelton is a mindset expert and one of the most impactful speakers of this generation. When his NFL dream ended abruptly, Trent began recording 2-minute videos of his daily progress and posting them on social media with the hashtag #RehabTime. Today, Trent reaches over 60 million people weekly through his hard-hitting yet always uplifting messages. His new book Protect Your Peace is a guide for how to protect your energy from the things that drain it, your mind from the things that distract you, and your soul from the things that don’t fulfill you. On this episode, Trent shares practical strategies to disconnect from negativity, hone your vision, and bring your life into alignment with your true purpose.
