Relentlessly Pursue Your Goals with Erik Allen

Whether you want to start a business, learn a new skill, or just have more meaningful relationships in your life, you need to be relentless in your pursuit of whatever it is that you want. Improving your skills in any area of life requires staying consistent and even being willing to not be very good at first. As long as you know what you want and stay on the path to reaching your goals and finding your purpose, you will get there. Today’s guest is an incredible example of what it looks like to get off the path of destruction and pursue a life of meaning and purpose.

Erik Allen is a man of integrity, work ethic, and determination. He grew up with a complicated childhood and a broken home. Erik had to raise himself from the age of 14 and unfortunately, found trouble along the way. He was empty and tired of settling for less, and eventually he gave his life to Christ, leading to everything changing for him. He and his wife are committed to breaking the cycles of addictions, depression, abuse, and divorce by continuing to strive for improvement through honest and open communication, gratitude, and goal-setting.
