BITESIZE | Why Giving Back Is The Most Powerful Thing You Can Do | John McAvoy

by Dr. Rangan Chatterjee   /  April 2, 2021

CAUTION: Contains swearing.

Making changes in life and overcoming obstacles can sometimes seem insurmountable, but if this man can turn his life around, anyone can.

Feel Better Live More Bitesize is my new weekly podcast for your mind, body and heart.  Each week I’ll be featuring inspirational stories and practical tips from some of my former guests.

Today’s clip is from episode 91 of the podcast with endurance athlete and author, John McAvoy.

John was born into a notorious crime family and served 10 years in prison for armed robbery. In this clip he tells the inspirational story of how he turned his own life around and then helped positively influence the lives of others.

John believes that he’s not exceptional – anyone can change, and everyone has a gift they were born to share.  He believes legacy is important and the impact we have on others throughout our lives can help lift them up and change their lives for the better.  The lessons and life advice John shares are relevant to each and every one of us.

If there’s a change you want to make in your own life but you’re not sure where to start I hope this conversation gives you the encouragement to begin.
