On the outside, David Norris had what looked like a great life.
As Chief Operating Officer, he helped grow one of the largest banks in Texas. He held that position for 25 years, and made a great living. Yet he felt like he was living someone else’s dream.
And there were a few other problems…
He weighed over 200 pounds, suffered from daily acid reflux and severe migraine headaches. David describes taking pain medication “like breath mints” just so he could function during the day. He was deeply unhappy working 60-80 hours a week, but he criticized himself for feeling so.
“I kept saying, ‘You are just being ungrateful. There’s something wrong with you. This is just the way it is.’ But I was unhappy. I was in pain – physical pain and emotional pain. I was miserable.”
Finally, David decided he was going to create a different life for himself.
He attended DreamBuilder LIVE, and enrolled to become a Life Mastery Consultant that weekend. He admits that making that decision was scary at first. However, since then his life has changed drastically.
Today, he’s no longer a corporate employee. He’s a full-time speaker, coach and teacher and continues building his dream life.
“I allowed myself to experience support and have ‘partners in believing’ to make this a reality. And it also helped me craft the business that I love so much today.”
In the four years since David became a coach, he’s generated $1.8 million in revenue!
He also lives with the health of a man half his age. He no longer suffers from migraines, nor does he take any prescription medications. And because he isn’t working 60-80 hours per week, he has time to spend with the people that he loves. He and his wife, Candy, love to travel together – they’ve swum with dolphins in Scottsdale and explored the Grand Canyon. He also gets to take their grandchildren to soccer practice and dance classes.
“I serve now as a living example for them so that they can live and grow up and live the life that they absolutely love. I love doing that more than anything in the world.”
