Surviving the Miracle on the Hudson:
When US Airways Flight 1549,
otherwise known as “The Miracle on the Hudson”, “crashed” into the
Hudson River in January 2009, Onward Podcast guest Dave Sanderson
survived. Consequently, he started to realize that the moments that
made up his life prepared him for that moment. Thinking only of
helping others, Dave became the last person off of the back of the
plane that day. Furthermore, he was largely responsible for making
sure others made it out safely.
An inspiring survivor, Dave was
an ordinary person in an extraordinary situation. Sharing the
lessons of that day with audiences around the world, he shows that
managing your state of mind and leading with certainty can turn
anyone into a hero. In this episode, Dave talks about how to step
up and lead yourself through adversity. In addition, he believes
one defining moment can create a lifetime of purpose. Dave speaks
about Point in Time That Changes Everything (PITTChE). Finally,
everyone has a PITTChE moment. Find yours, focus on adding value to
others first, and watch how your life takes off.
