Glenn’s Backstory – “Ultimate Surrender”
Updated: Jan 14
Some stories move you.
I guess the purpose of this post is to encourage our community to listen to Glenn’s inspiring story.
This bonus episode dropped on April 7, 2021. The listener can expect the rawest version of Glenn as he shares his “disastrous, long trip to hell” past that includes seventy-five hospitalizations and detoxes, four full-blown rehabs - with his last spanning a four-month stay. He confesses to reading almost every book on alcoholism, consulting with doctors near and far - all to no avail - and shares his near-death experience.
Glenn shares his past pains and experiences because he cares. He shares because he feels a sense of commitment to helping the next guy recover from this seemingly hopeless disease. He shares out of his sense of duty and love for the alcoholic still struggling. In this powerful message, Glenn shares his reasons for motivation and what could be the “secret sauce” in recovery, so listen carefully.
His journey starts with hope, which turns into faith, which turns into fact. His journey begins with a surrender to his counselor, declaring he “would do whatever you tell me to do - I just cannot take another drink.” That was in 2014.
Today, Glenn leads an admitted blessed life that has found all of the AA 9th- Step Promises solid and true in his life.
His message is a message of hope. Today Glenn sings a new song. He is no longer piloting his own plane and spends his days working on a better version of himself.
If it is possible in his life, is it possible in yours? We believe so! Now is the time for you to believe in yourself. Believe SO MUCH that you move yourself to the most important point of total surrender.
Enjoy the listen.
