Trauma can create a heavy weight that we can carry for too many years. Trey Canard knows this because he carried a weight for far too long. In this inspirational and enlightening talk you will pick up a key to recognizing and taking the first steps for overcoming any trauma in your life.
“I love racing and my passion for doing so has not changed, but there comes a time in every racer’s career where you come to the realization that although the spirit is willing, the flesh is weak, and I know in my heart it’s time to call it a day,” he said at the time. “I’ve had many injuries throughout my career and have always done my best to heal and bounce back. However, I feel I am not able to push myself to the level I need to in order to be competitive at the highest level of racing. I am sad to say goodbye but also extremely grateful and thankful for the last 10 years of my life. I never could have dreamed I’d do the things I’ve been able to do, to live out a childhood dream and meet and become close with so many wonderful fans and industry people.”
Canard recently gave a TEDx talk and talked about a ton of different things. Check it out below.
