The Cycle Of Lives: a Journey Through Emotional Chaos with David Richman



The impact on cancer in peoples’ lives is getting a lot more attention now than it has ever been before. The emotional toll that this takes for patients, survivors and those still battling it can be extremely draining to everyone around them, especially with their families. This conversation we had with David Richman was very insightful as he shared his firsthand experience of having someone in the family deal with the disease.

In this episode, I have David on the podcast to share his story about cancer, how he managed to turn around his life and the two books he has written. These books are bestsellers, one of which is "Cycle Of Lives: 15 People’s Stories, 5,000 Miles, and a Journey Through the Emotional Chaos of Cancer”. Fifteen stories to include those that are survivors, doctors, nurses, etc., giving people a 360 view on cancer.
 
At the heart of the conversation is about choices in life, our perspectives, on whether you are doing your absolute utmost or trying to measure up against other people. Listen to find out what matters most in life in under an hour. Enjoy!

LITTLE NUGGETS OF GOLD:
  • An introduction of self by David Richman, his life’s journey and the point in his life when he decided to start doing things for himself.
  • The compelling “Terry Story”, one of the 15 from his book Cycle of Lives, who in spite of her situation welcomes every morning to see if she got a 50% chance to be happy.
  • Interesting sets of ideas on “Perspective” from Jennifer and David.
  • How was David able to endure the marathons, the triathlons, the 87-mile rollerblade ride and the 47 hundred miles bike ride in 45 days?
