“They have everything going for them! What do they have to worry about?”
The phrase above represents the assumption of many when it comes to the successful. Culture suggests that just because you are a successful athlete or entrepreneur, you should have everything together. This common misconception has caused a lot of internal stress for high performers and is what keeps emotions “bottled up.”
On the other hand, culture also assumes that just because you maybe come from a broken family or grew up on the wrong side of town, your future is already predetermined, so why even try reaching for something more? In today’s episode, we leave all the assuming behind and talk about seeing past face value and knowing people where it matters. Their heart.
Welcome back to Warriors Unmasked! Today we welcome former athlete, professional speaker, and founder of Crossroad Moments, André Allen. André shares his faith-filled journey of growing up in Mississippi, the harsh transition of his parent’s divorce, and the moment that changed his perspective forever. You’ll hear how moving to a more integrated city made André realize we are not just skin deep and how communication is the key to unlocking new doors and becoming all you can be.
Join the conversation as Andre talks about how God used sports and athletics to help him become the first college graduate in his family. Because of his hard work and discipline, generations after him can now reach for a brighter future. André isn’t just a trailblazer in education, though; listen in as we talk about the crossroads moment André experienced during the toughest time of his life and how reaching out (something he had never learned in his family) made all the difference and set course for the impactful life he leads today.
This episode is sure to leave you empowered and hopeful! Hit play to learn how to overcome your own “crossroads moment” and how you can take action towards a better future today.
