“I accepted the fact that I was going to die before I was 40.” Tower of Power founder and saxophonist Emilio Castillo was diving down into a deep hole. But it wasn’t until he walked into a 12-step meeting that he finally decided to turn the ship around and head into a new direction. In this episode, Marc talks extensively with Emilio about his ‘drive to live’. As you’ll discover, not everyone in the recovery-journey feels suicidal or is knee-deep in self-loathing. Some, like Emilio, know what they want. They simply don’t know how to get there. And the cry of help can also be a cry for guidance. “Go with the winners. Follow the example of those who are making it and do what they do”. Both Marc and Emilio share their experiences with this critical mantra, a mission-statement for lantern-holders who are finding success. It’s vital, actionable info that everyone in recovery can benefit from, courtesy of this genuine and down-to-earth episode.
