Whether you’re struggling in your career or dealing with a major life challenge, there’s no shortage of advice on how to find success and happiness. But while you can find countless tools, strategies, and even motivation from outside sources, they rarely lead to the life-changing results we seek. That’s because the biggest obstacle standing between you and the life you want is you.
Anthony Trucks learned this from an early age. Having entered foster care at the age of three, Anthony was adopted by an all-white family when he was 14 and, for the first time ever, had the chance to play football. Though far behind in skill, he loved the game and decided he wanted to be one of the greats. Although the odds were against him—he’d learned that 75% of prison inmates were once foster kids like him—he decided his identity in life was not going to be determined by some statistic. With determination, drive, and hard work, he received a scholarship to play college football, which led to a career in the NFL. After an injury cut his NFL career short, it was this same mentality that helped him become a successful entrepreneur, father, and husband.
Anthony now shows people how to unlock their potential for success and happiness, by making their own “identity shift.” In this inspirational keynote, he shares his personal story of adversity—foster care, an NFL career cut short, near bankruptcy, and divorce—and how the power of self-belief helped him overcome it all. He teaches audiences how to shift the thoughts and beliefs they have about themselves—i.e. their identity—to overcome life’s challenges. With stories about family, football, and facing your fears, Anthony will inspire your audience to turn their biggest obstacles into their greatest opportunities!
