Confront Your PAIN and Use it as Fuel to Move Forward in Life w/ ​Ayodeji Awosika
Show Notes

Welcome to episode 33 of the Mindful & Driven podcast! It's all about how to not lose sight of what really matters whilst chasing your dreams.

Episode 33’s guest is ​Ayodeji Awosika. He’s written multiple books including The Destiny Formula and You 2 and has been featured in Business Insider, The Huffington Post, Thrive Global. At the same time, Ayo had collected over 80,000 followers on Medium.

He'd done all this after being a college dropout who, at 24, was broke and had no idea what he was doing with his life.  He took his issues head-on and decided to turn everything around and several years later he started to live the life that he loves on his own terms.

Ayo preaches the importance of being comfortable with being uncomfortable. The idea is to confront your pain and let it become a source of motivation.
