Theo Androus on Pursuing Your Dreams

Ariane interviews her great friend, Theo, who has been through it all. Life threw him quite a few challenges, including a few terrible accidents and a devastating diagnosis that would have left most of us stuck. With that said, he has pursued his dreams—he has strong drives and motivations—even after reaching a spiritual bottom. His words contain a very positive message for anyone looking to take a challenge and turn it into a true gift. For example, Theo says in the interview, "I can't change what's happened to me, but I can make a choice." In the spirit of Ariane's recent paperback release, Theo is a real "change optimist" and his story was featured in her book. You can hear the original interview between them here.
