Season 6 Episode 609
Aired on 04/05/2015 | CC tv-14
Motivational speaker and life coach Tim Storey has worked with people of all walks of life, including the rich and famous, and says no one is immune to experiencing setbacks. How you deal with them, Tim says, is key.

Tim says everyone is at risk of getting stuck in a self-defeating narrative because the situation surrounding your setback may be completely new and alien to you. "When they fall down, they don't know what to do to get back up," he says. "So they sit in their setback, and then they settle in their setback because they're not trained. They don't have the tools to get back up."

In the video above, Tim cautions against letting your past define your present.
