No Matter How Bad Things Seem, You Can Overcome

Terry Tucker
Terry Tucker has had many challenging jobs during the course of his career including a SWAT Team hostage negotiator ….. but his greatest challenge was a personal one.  Terry’s story of overcoming this incredible challenge will encourage you on many levels.  Terry is an author, a motivational speaker and his blog, Motivational Check, has daily posts of inspiration.

During his time in law enforcement and over my years of battling cancer, Terry has seen many people die. He noticed that the people who died peacefully were the ones who were able to find their purpose and live it. Conversely, the people who begged for more time and fought their demise, where those who had never done much with their lives. In many cases, these people never even looked for their purpose.
