In 2004 Michael Sandler rode 5000 miles solo & unsupported to help those with learning disabilities. In this heart-warming interview, learn how to find strength to continue when the going gets tough.
Jessica: You might know Michael Sandler as the uber positive host of Inspire Nation. And you might think that he was born this way… well, though he did came into this world with some admirable traits, he had to work pretty hard at becoming the man I so admire today.
As Michael’s wife, you might think that I’ve heard his stories a million times by now–it’s true I have, but amazingly I never tire of hearing them. There’s always something new & fascinating to learn. So I decided I wanted to give you, the listener, the opportunity to be truly inspired by Michael himself.
In this episode we zero in on one incredible epic journey that Michael took. Back in 2004, he rode his bicycle across the country to raise awareness for children and adults with learning disabilities, 5,000 miles in 40 days, solo and unsupported. Yes, that means it was him, his bicycle, a few pieces of precious gear, and Mexican radio – though that didn’t last very long. We’ll talk more about that later.
We’re going to talk about divine inspiration – how to know when it’s not coming from you, perseverance vs. being plain stubborn; how to keep going when the going gets tough, what to do when people start doubting you, how to summon in the miracles when things start looking bleak & keeping the faith no matter what.
