In this episode of the “Business Growth Architect Show” we are featuring David Galbenski and his key ideas around confronting life-threatening health challenges with a mindset of abundance, appreciating every moment, and maintaining ‘realistic positivity.’


David shares his personal journey dealing with a severe health diagnosis, focusing on how he chose to shift into an abundance mindset, treasuring every moment, and capitalizing on the chance to create impactful experiences. 


He discusses the concept of ‘realistic positivity,’ which he coined after being inspired by Jim Collins’ book “Good to Great” and Admiral Stockdale’s story, emphasizing the balance between confronting brutal facts while never losing faith in a positive outcome.

David’s story illustrates his commitment to making every ordinary moment into a special ‘Moment’ with a capital ‘M’ by understanding statistics but still remaining grounded in the present and controlling what he can. Simple because he didn’t know how many more Moments he would have.


 This resilience and determination allowed David to not only survive but also serve a greater purpose through his work with the Living Liver Foundation and the Global School of Entrepreneurship.
