Don’t Let Tragedies Amputate Your
Spirit With Travis Mills
Listen to the newest episode on your favourite podcasting platforms!
Almost a decade ago, United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills of the 82nd Airborne lost portions of both his legs and arms while serving in Afghanistan.
Instead of giving up on life as a quadruple amputee, he instead decided to move forward, inspire other people, and do good in the world. In 2013, he founded the Travis Mills Foundation to support recalibrated veterans and their families. Travis is also an in-demand motivational speaker known for his remarkable positivity and sense of humor. His life story was the inspiration for the 2013 documentary Travis: A Soldier’s Story, and, two years later, his book, Tough As They Come, was published and became a New York Times Bestseller.
- What ingredients went into “making” Travis prior to the military — his family, his childhood experiences, and his life back in his hometown
- His trips to Afghanistan where he first met his wife and the events that transpired before and after his life-changing injury
- How he decided to not get stuck in the past and instead just move forward with his life
- How talking became a huge part of his life and how he eventually became a motivational speaker
- How it’s better to stop asking why things happen and be more grateful for the simple things we have in life
- The core beliefs he lives by and the message he wants to convey whenever he delivers his motivational speeches
