There’s a moment in someone’s life where one conversation can change the way they see themselves. Our guest Jesse Brisendine had this moment at just five years old. But how it starts isn’t always how it ends and the journey to healing was just a part of unlocking the greatness that Jesse embodies today. 

Jesse Brisendine is an award-winning speaker, best-selling author, and internationally known coach who helps individuals and organizations push past their limitations. We take a deep dive into Jesse’s life and journey from experiencing divorce at five years old to internalizing emotions to the point of attempting suicide at nine. Jesse talks about his struggle with mental health as a teenager and how he managed to break away from the self-loathing and begin growing confidence while in college. 

Listen in as we talk about the moment Jesse took his first step in healing and the difference a small change made to his mental health. Jesse talks about one of the hardest days of his life when he lost a friend and how that opened a new sense of consciousness that Jesse still lives with today. From a moment of divine awareness to gaining a new perspective on gratitude in another country, Jesse’s story is full of heartbreak, hope, healing, and inspiration. 

This episode is full of eye-opening and life-changing insight into the power of gratitude and mindset shifts. We hope you find encouragement and hope from this story to take that next step in your own journey. For more resources or to get in touch with Jesse, please check out the links below!
