My name is Travis Daigle. I speak, teach, and write about the process of Character Development. My philosophy is anchored in personal and professional experiences that include overcoming obesity (I weighed over 300 lbs. at 17 years old), paying off consumer debt (to the tune of $60K), studying/working in the engineering field, and becoming a Special Forces Medic (AKA – Green Beret) and Combat Veteran.
I believe that character is best developed in the pursuit of freedom in all four fundamental areas of life:
- Health – Eating, Exercise, Rest, Recreation
- Resources – Spaces we Occupy, Material Possessions, Money
- Relationships – Significant Others, Family, Friends, Coworkers, Humanity
- Work – Vocation, Mission, Purpose
These areas create context for our day to day lives and they are intimately connected.
As we engage the habit change required to have physical health, gain financial freedom , have flourishing relationships, and do work that we find deeply fulfilling (Together, this represents Freedom) with time we will inevitably experience discomfort, challenge, boredom, apathy, fatigue, fear, emotional distress, depression, discrimination, obstacles, resistance, distraction… or what I generally call, Pain.
It is by engaging pain directly, on the path to Freedom, that we develop the Character to gain and keep our freedom. We Self-Actualize.
I make it my mission to help people reach their full potential through the pursuit of Freedom.
