Imagine walking away virtually unharmed from a near-fatal event. How do you think your perspective on life might change? Would you view the event as a devastating trauma, or as an opportunity to achieve new levels of growth and excellence while serving as an inspiration to others?

As one of the last passengers to make it off of US Airways Flight 1549 – also known as the “Miracle on the Hudson,” or the flight that crash-landed on the Hudson River on January 15, 2009 – Dave Sanderson chose to view the experience as a transformative opportunity. Dave is now a nationally recognized leadership speaker, entrepreneur, best-selling author, and philanthropist who travels the world to share his inspirational leadership lessons, specializing in working with established and emerging leaders and entrepreneurs to help them find opportunities from uncertainty. With 37 years of experience in sales and sales leadership, he also served as the Director of Security for Tony Robbins for over 10 years, has been named one of Inc’s top 100 leadership speakers, and has raised over $14.8 million for the American Red Cross through his talks. As our guest in Episode 175 of The MINDSet Game® podcast, Dave shares the following life lessons:

  • The value of striving to be less judgmental of others and instead, approaching them with a focus on curiosity, compassion, and connection
  • Why it’s important to examine the meanings you attach to things and reframe meanings that might be negative
  • The power of divorcing the mindset of limitation and marrying the mindset of unlimited capacity
