As soon as I make it through this situation I have to help people through their situation – Timothy Alexander 7:00
As athletes, we can face situations that at the time do not seem fair. We start to ask why me. We plan so much of our lives around the game and the opportunities it will give us to take care of the people we love. Sometimes the most unfortunate situations lead to us being able to use our lives and story to impact more lives than imaginable.
In episode 8 of The 9INE POINT Started With A Dream Podcast, Jacolby talks with motivational speaker and former UAB Athlete Timothy Alexander about his journey. A journey that he describes in full detail in his new book written by him and Tim Stephens Ever Faithful Ever Loyal The Timothy Alexander Story.
Tim’s story is one that is made not only to inspire but bring to life the power of perspective. He went from being one of the top football players in the state of Alabama heading into the playoff to being paralyzed with not motivation at first to keep going. He asked one day “Why Me,” and a friend told him Tim why not you? That moment Tim Alexander got his dream back, leading to some opportunities to inspire a nation to help bring back UAB Football to taking 11 years to take 12 steps.
TA’s journey and his story is a must-read and a complete gamechanger for having the right mental framework to overcome tough times to make those moments of triumph.
