Surviving Cancer: The Power Of Positivity with Stu Massengill

3 days before his 24th birthday while traveling in New Zealand, Stu Massengill discovered that he had testicular cancer.

He recalls walking out of the doctor’s office with his parents, feeling the weight of their worry on his shoulders and saying, “Don’t treat me any differently than before, I don’t want that negative seed planted in my mind.”

It was this kind of thinking that helped Stu speed through his recovery and continue to look at life with an abundant mindset.

Today, Stu Massengill is a national trainer for Tony Robbins and host of the Finding Direction Podcast. He truly believes that your mindset is key to helping you not only thrive in life but to live a life of passion and fulfillment.
