Markus Dives Deep - Addiction, Sobriety and Recovery
Markus Weingart, Coach, Father, Mentor and Spiritual Advisor to many who know him, including myself, courageously opens up and shares his amazing journey. Markus discusses his earlier days growing up and his journey through addiction beginning in high school. His athletic achievements were one of many things in his life derailed by his addiction. "Drugs and alcohol took my life away from me. My life had become what can I take from life instead of what can I give to life." A rock bottom that would have almost certainly ended up with Markus dead or in jail has in many ways defined his life today. "That is the magic of this process, being able to give back what was so freely given to me when I first needed help. That's the wonderful circle of recovery." There is no doubt Markus is living A Richer Life today and what almost killed him has become his purpose in many ways.
Addiction is present in almost every family somewhere, so like all major issues which every family faces at some point, the question to ask is, 'are we paying attention to the elephant in the living room?'. This episode focuses on Markus' story and purpose. In a future episode with Markus, we will bring dealing with this disease full circle and explore his Intervention, Family Dynamics and Co-Dependency.
