Finding Your Personal Mission with James McNeil
James McNeil is a combat veteran of the US Army who joined me on the Work in Progress podcast to share the story behind his new book, Finding Your Personal Mission: Transforming Your Mind to Overcome Suicidal Thoughts.
“It is not a weakness to let other people see where you’re struggling, nor is it a strength to cover it up.”
Upon leaving the military James experienced first hand the struggles of integrating into civilian life. From the challenges of finding a new career and translating his skills to a whole new environment, to his internal battles of coming to terms with who he was as a person.
His lows were so extreme at times that he did unfortunately have suicidal thoughts. Thankfully he was able to turn his mind around through better understanding himself, and adopting tools and strategies which he has documented within this book.
This is a book for anyone that has ever asked themselves if the world would be better off without them, as well as a solid resource for anyone wishing to better understand those that are suffering.
James refers to suicide as a permanent solution to a temporary problem, and he hopes that by sharing his experience and the strategies that got him back on track, he can help those that are suffering to find a better way.
