My name is Sam Morris; I help men slay their mental dragons without the whole world knowing. I was born and raised in The Green Mountains of Vermont where I was a competitive tennis player, golfer and skier. I attended Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina where I studied Sports Management and played #1 on the tennis team.
After college, my tennis career came to an end and I thought all was good… and it was… for a little while.
Fast forward eight years to me being a successful commercial real estate broker and the wheels started to come off; I got ridiculously out of shape, and not just physically. I was a shell of my former athlete, and leader self.
I was on the fast track to the bottom. I was drinking excessively, doing a boat load of cocaine and ruining my life. Every aspect of my life was suffering, I was fat, reckless, and unaware.
For five more years this went on, getting worse by the week… finally, enough was enough. I needed to change. I had to start over in all areas of my life. I had to change EVERYTHING. I had to admit to myself that not only was I an alcoholic, I also had severe depression, and anxiety, and worst of all; I didn’t love love myself. I had to become open to change and I had to allow myself to being a beginner.
That’s what made me say goodbye to commercial real estate and dedicate my life to helping others.
And that’s what led to my mantra:
“Be Open To Change and Always Allow Yourself To Be a Beginner in Everything You Do”
