Live Your Epic Life

                          Byron Davis“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.”

~ R. Buckminster Fuller

A former American record holder (swimming), an Ironman Triathlete, a career coach and founder of the epic life project, Byron Davis has a gift for helping people get unstuck and to transform their passions into lives and careers they love. Byron is the author of “RePurposed: The Art of Winning Through Letting Your Obstacles Lead the Way.”

He is also a friend and was my guest on last week’s Awakening to Awareness radio show. A sought-after conference speaker, Byron is entertaining to watch and easy to understand. He helps audiences reverse limiting beliefs on the spot and teaches them to use the simple power of personal narratives to quickly establish new habits and activate their God-gifted potential.

In an amazing one-hour conversation Byron shared thoughts on how fear holds people back; his interesting concept on time; why accountability is important for each of us and; how both relationships and systems are essential for moving forward. He also talked about the role storytelling plays in becoming more self-aware and for fulfilling one’s desires and ambitions, as well as why we find some lessons/teachings difficult to receive.

If you’re interested in listening and learning more, here’s a link to the show podcast. Byron is a high energy guy, who has studied human behavior and potential for years. He can be contacted through his web site or here.

  1. Just listened to the Bryon Davis podcast. Very inspiring! I love that he walked away from law and what very likely would have been a financially stable path (and the path society would generally expect someone to take), and instead made the decision to go back to swimming, with no real guarantee what the future held. But he was determined to “live my passion for the rest of my life”. Wow. And now look at how well he is doing!

    BTW – I missed being a baby boomer by 2 years! 🙂

    • First, thank you for choosing to listen to the podcast. Byron is a great person and was a delightful guest. He’s definitely enjoyed an interesting life journey thus far. He and I are similar in many respects… and we speak a common coaching language. I hope some of that messaging came through on the show. And no worries about missing out on our extraordinary generation. We’ll grant you honorary membership. 🙂

    • Hey Brad, I just logged on to both LinkedIn and Facebook (where the post is also publicized). Both links are operational and yield Byron’s business sites. Perhaps if you try accessing in a different browser?

      • Thanks Eric, I wasn’t clear. Your links connect to his sites, but his sites are not very helpful as the buttons and contact tabs are not functional, so nothing can be accessed from the home page. This is an issue for Byron, not you, but I can’t contact him.

    • I’ve read/know just enough about him ‘to be dangerous.’ Admired his quotes for years but hadn’t created time to delve deeper. Thanks for the nudge; I’m sensing learning more will be time well spent.

  2. I am glad you shared this quote by R. Buckminster Fuller. I liked how you connected this to Bryon Davis. As far as the last person’s comments, it is always good to know the person behind the ‘persona.’ Glad ‘Geo Sans’ liked Fuller’s biography. We sometimes need to hear that others have had challenges and risen above them. All good parts of this post, Eric!

    • Lovely observations, Robin. As soon as I read the quote, I knew it would align well with Byron as a show guest. Plus I get to share it with all who read this blog. 🙂

      And seeing you read Geo Sans’ comment, if you aren’t following his blog, consider doing do. He is a thoughtful man with a deeply creative side and a genuine appreciation for what is grounded and good in life. Thanks for your kind comment!
