Dr. Herman Williams, a physician, medical facility administrator, and author from Tennessee, joined us to discuss his newest release, "CLEAR! Living the Life You Didn't Dream Of", a book about his journey of dying TWICE, yet recovering and rising to greater heights in life.
From His Website:
"From an early age, we are taught to dream and to set goals for ourselves so that we can become productive citizens in our society. A perfect example of this philosophy is articulated well with a statement made by Brian Tracy:
'The starting point of great success and achievement has always been the same. It is for you to, “dream big dreams.” There is nothing more important, and nothing that works faster than for you to cast off your own limitations and begin dreaming and fantasizing about the wonderful things that you can become and have and do.'
I followed this tenet to the letter and had very methodically “dreamed big dreams” of being a superb orthopedic surgeon to the professional athletes in Los Angeles. A very superficial dream yes…but never the less, I set a huge stretch goal for my life and began that journey at an early age. Many dominoes fell into place resulting from my high school selection, college choice, medical school admission, and entry into one of the most difficult surgical subspecialties in medicine.
But what happens when you suddenly awaken from those wonderful “big dreams” to discover that all you have worked and lived for is now terribly out of place and removed from your reach? What happens when you are told that you are permanently and completely disabled? That is where my story begins. That is where I invite readers to share my journey to overcome adversity and find peace and happiness to Live the Life I Didn’t Dream of."
