Carlo Taormina grew up with the intention of “Being Somebody” in this world. Ever since he was a kid he told himself he wanted to help people and be successful.  It wasn’t until later in life did he realize the need for significance was a huge driving factor for him. He subconsciously felt as if he “wasn’t enough”. He told himself that if he could; get the six pack, build a successful business, make a bunch of money, then that impossible feat would mean he could accomplish anything in life.

 It’s December 2020, right before Christmas and his birthday where he had what he describes as “Hell Week”. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong and his whole life spiraled out of control. 

  • He got fired from his Gym Management Position 
  • He Injured his back (Herniated Disc L5S1) and couldn’t walk 
  • His Online Personal Training Business was failing and losing money
  • His girlfriend at the time called him randomly to break up with him

With being hit from every direction all at once he didn’t know what to do, or how to react. He took a step back and looked at the big picture of his life and asked “What just happened?” “What did I do to deserve this?” After his  “Hell Week” and for the majority of the year of 2021, he became clinically depressed, suicidal, hopeless, and without a purpose.

After help from his brother, a random trip to Florida, he found hope, got inspired and started on a journey to help others deal with self-doubt, adversity and to deeply believe that things happen for them, not to them. Carlo has achieved the “near impossible” as he puts it when he describes overcoming clinical depression and suicidal ideation. Carlo has always been one to help people with his background in Personal Training, Life Coaching and as a Keynote Speaker. This is a wonderful conversation not to be missed
