A product of the foster care system who was eventually adopted by an all-white family, Anthony Trucks turned his self-determination and athletic gifts into a college football scholarship and eventually the chance to live his dream in the NFL. By 25, he was a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, married with a son and a bright future, but a fluke injury quickly changed his path, derailing his football career and hurdling him toward despair. In the search for a way forward, he experienced what he describes as a transformational identity shift, the same type of shift he now helps others to make during their lowest moments. He has become a speaker, a best-selling author, the host of two wildly popular podcasts, and a great friend to the whole team at SUCCESS.
