E64 - Terry Tucker - As long as you don’t quit, you can never be defeated
Today’s guest has been a college basketball player, Customer Service Manager then after his daughter was born, he became a police officer with the Cincinnati Police Department, where I was a SWAT Hostage Negotiator.   In early 2012 he was diagnosed with a rare form of Melanoma, which presented on the bottom of my foot. By the time the melanoma was detected, it had metastasized to a lymph node in my groin. After two surgeries to remove the tumours, he was put on a weekly injection of the drug, Interferon, to help keep the disease from coming back.  He took those weekly injections for almost 5 years before the Interferon became so toxic to my body that I ended up in the Intensive Care Unit with a fever of 108 degrees.   There were times he felt so poorly and was in so much agony that he prayed to die. Each day was a struggle to use his mind to override his body's apathy and distress. One thing he learnt during all his pain and suffering is that you have two choices. You can succumb to the debilitating discomfort and misery, or you can learn to embrace it and use it to make you a stronger and better human being and he chose the latter. I realize pain and discomfort can beat you to your knees and keep you there if you let it. But I also came to appreciate that I could use my hurting and anguish to make me stronger and more resolute. He has recently written a book, entitled Sustainable Excellence, Ten Principles to Leading Your Uncommon and Extraordinary Life, to help people find and live their uncommon and extraordinary life. His hope is that people who read the book will lead a life of significance, as well as a life of success.  If there is one thing, he’s learnt is that as long as you don’t quit, you can never be defeated.
