Dealing with his parents’ divorce at the age of 14, it turned his world upside down. Finding out that his Dad wasn’t the person he thought he was through growing up. This turned into misplaced angers against the wrong people in his life, including his mom. As if this wasn’t enough of a problem for him, he and his brother were involved in a bad car accident that severely affected his life. Danny had to learn how to walk and talk again in high school. It also nearly sidelined his high school football and basketball careers.

It wouldn’t be until years later, that he would be able to shed the people in his life that held him back, and meet the people that would help speed up his personal and attitude growth. Danny is a personal friend of mine who I have helped navigate his transformation.

I hope everyone and their families had a great and safe 4th of July weekend!

[00:01:18],979 –> [00:01:24],259
hard and take care of the people that
surround me and look out for the people

20
[00:01:24],259 –> [00:01:29],30
that looked out for me helped me through
my horror times and was there for me to

21
[00:01:29],30 –> [00:01:30],650
celebrate my good times

22
[00:01:30],650 –> [00:01:37],159
so how all this come about oh I was
younger my parents split up when I was

23
[00:01:37],159 –> [00:01:44],30
kinda confused on where I wanted to go
in life i was kinda on the wrong path

24
[00:01:44],30 –> [00:01:49],280
for a little while i was doing kind of
stupid petty things that’s a kid growing

25
[00:01:49],280 –> [00:01:55],909
more get into trouble and when I was
about 18 19 years old I kind of realized

26
[00:01:55],909 –> [00:01:58],909
that on that’s not the way to go

27
[00:01:59],750 –> [00:02:05],000
no I just try to set a good example for
my family members that are younger than

28
[00:02:05],000 –> [00:02:09],709
me and my friends that I grew up with
that you can do things differently and

29
[00:02:09],709 –> [00:02:14],299
still have the same i can see success
that you had when you were doing the

30
[00:02:14],299 –> [00:02:19],40
wrong things you can do it in a good
weigh-in do positive things with the

31
[00:02:19],40 –> [00:02:26],209
people around you and that’s what I try
to do I just try to keep a positive what

32
[00:02:26],209 –> [00:02:29],209
kind of struggles did you have with your
parents splitting up

33
[00:02:30],130 –> [00:02:33],370
my mom and father split up

34
[00:02:33],370 –> [00:02:38],110
there’s a lot of anger there like a lot
of anger and I took it out a lot on her

35
[00:02:38],110 –> [00:02:42],640
cause like I really know how to handle
that type of situation

36
[00:02:43],600 –> [00:02:49],239
I mean 14 years old you know the person
that I thought my father was was that

37
[00:02:49],240 –> [00:02:55],660
the person is the person that he is is
nothing what I thought it was had a lot

38
[00:02:55],660 –> [00:03:00],310
of anger and I struggled to deal with
that for 45 years

39
[00:03:00],970 –> [00:03:07],780
it was very hard to warm figure out how
to channel that emotion to a certain

40
[00:03:07],780 –> [00:03:13],60
extent that hatred sports is what it was
for me i just put all the effort I had

41
[00:03:13],60 –> [00:03:16],510
in sports and try to make the best of
what I could with that

42
[00:03:16],510 –> [00:03:22],359
so what is you try changing your life to
make it better for yourself when I

43
[00:03:22],360 –> [00:03:26],650
played basketball in high school I
really I was really good and I really

44
[00:03:26],650 –> [00:03:32],290
thought that I could on probably make it
to the NBA I was probably one of those

45
[00:03:32],290 –> [00:03:36],400
kids oughta lock and don’t gotta jump
shot i got a crossover i’m going to go

46
[00:03:36],400 –> [00:03:39],850
to the NBA and that didn’t happen

47
[00:03:40],540 –> [00:03:44],679
no I was kind of disappointed at that
too because I made some mistakes in

48
[00:03:44],680 –> [00:03:46],60
school and

49
[00:03:46],60 –> [00:03:51],580
I have to go to an alternative high
school and you know I remember our home

50
[00:03:51],580 –> [00:03:56],860
games you should be played at burlington
county college and my coach I was in my

51
[00:03:56],860 –> [00:04:01],780
senior year and my coach said it’s
college crap you should really look at

52
[00:04:01],780 –> [00:04:06],310
this kid and the scott told my coach you
don’t got time for kids i went to an

53
[00:04:06],310 –> [00:04:11],950
alternative school so that was some
difficult for me like just knowing that

54
[00:04:11],950 –> [00:04:16],930
that was my last year in school and that
was the game before last games that i

55
[00:04:16],930 –> [00:04:24],190
was always in the back of my head and
then I got to about 19 and I’m you know

56
[00:04:24],190 –> [00:04:29],590
I i just wanted to change in the people
that I was around and constantly hanging

57
[00:04:29],590 –> [00:04:35],619
winning doing arm not the best things to
be doing i just wanted to change i

58
[00:04:35],620 –> [00:04:38],80
wanted to be a better person

59
[00:04:38],80 –> [00:04:41],859
my grandfather was sick at the time and
I wanted to make them proud I wanted to

60
[00:04:41],860 –> [00:04:46],419
make my mom proud and show them that
even though I didn’t start off the best

61
[00:04:46],419 –> [00:04:50],650
way that i’ll do my best to finish and
be the best man that I can be so how was

62
[00:04:50],650 –> [00:04:56],950
that received by your family there we
were happy that I was finally ready to

63
[00:04:56],950 –> [00:05:02],860
put that stuff past me and build on the
new person i want to say I’m a

64
[00:05:02],860 –> [00:05:04],780
completely different person

65
[00:05:04],780 –> [00:05:11],799
I mean a lot of me half of me is the old
me as far as seeing things from people’s

66
[00:05:11],800 –> [00:05:17],169
point of views i mean i understand
people’s views and stuff and there’s

67
[00:05:17],169 –> [00:05:21],729
about half of me that’s a completely new
person as far as the maturity level on

68
[00:05:21],729 –> [00:05:24],130
my professionalism

69
[00:05:24],130 –> [00:05:28],659
I’ve learned a lot of stuff that on i
really think that I would on learn

70
[00:05:29],200 –> [00:05:34],90
overall the family was happy and proud
of me to do my mom’s very proud of me

71
[00:05:34],90 –> [00:05:39],969
i’ve made accomplishments do my job and
on i just hope I’m making them proud and

72
[00:05:39],970 –> [00:05:43],479
I think for the most part they are so
what steps did you take to get started

73
[00:05:43],479 –> [00:05:45],550
with making these changes in your life

74
[00:05:45],550 –> [00:05:48],360
first thing is people a year around

75
[00:05:48],360 –> [00:05:52],800
I was younger when I was having problems
channel and my emotions are taking down

76
[00:05:52],800 –> [00:05:55],919
on the people that were the last ones to
deserve it

77
[00:05:56],550 –> [00:06:00],300
I’m staking it out on my mom and my
mom’s been there for me through

78
[00:06:00],300 –> [00:06:05],789
everything everything I ever went 2-2
she was right there with me to old-time

79
[00:06:05],789 –> [00:06:13],318
she didn’t deserve that I had to admit
that i had an anger problem and it was

80
[00:06:13],319 –> [00:06:18],509
gonna take time to one work on that I’m
still working on some of those seen

81
[00:06:18],509 –> [00:06:24],629
things today I had to cut off some mom
people that i was around people that I

82
[00:06:24],629 –> [00:06:28],650
thought were friends that weren’t
friends people that weren’t the people

83
[00:06:28],650 –> [00:06:31],229
that I wanted to be around

84
[00:06:31],229 –> [00:06:36],60
I had to figure out who who loved me for
me

85
[00:06:36],689 –> [00:06:43],800
we call it the falls and everybody
everything else that goes with it

86
[00:06:43],800 –> [00:06:48],330
I had to realize that just because one
thing doesn’t work out there’s always

87
[00:06:48],330 –> [00:06:50],99
another step

88
[00:06:50],99 –> [00:06:55],110
so that’s on important that one thing
doesn’t go your way there’s no need to

89
[00:06:55],110 –> [00:06:58],229
get on man and upset you can do
something else

90
[00:06:58],860 –> [00:07:02],729
make your own path we call this a how do
you do it

91
[00:07:02],729 –> [00:07:07],409
leave your own legacy so we’re there any
roblox that you hit when trying to do

92
[00:07:07],409 –> [00:07:08],460
all this

93
[00:07:08],460 –> [00:07:14],520
absolutely you know when you’re trying
to change who you are in the beginning

94
[00:07:14],520 –> [00:07:20],758
it’s very difficult because it use you
could still be in some of them same

95
[00:07:20],759 –> [00:07:24],70
situations where on

96
[00:07:24],70 –> [00:07:30],70
you know when I was eighteen sixteen
seventeen eighteen years old that there

97
[00:07:30],70 –> [00:07:35],740
was a confrontation my way to handle it
would be alright let’s fight

98
[00:07:35],740 –> [00:07:40],330
now i see that’s not the way to go i
mean you were talking things out that’s

99
[00:07:40],330 –> [00:07:45],280
how relationships are lost most open
most of the time mix understandings and

100
[00:07:45],280 –> [00:07:49],510
things like that you need to be willing
to warm talk things out sometimes

101
[00:07:49],510 –> [00:07:54],219
fighting is not always the right answer
on another broke block was maturity I

102
[00:07:54],220 –> [00:07:59],920
had to mature a lot as a man and i had
to accept the hardest thing was probably

103
[00:07:59],920 –> [00:08:05],260
accepting me for me I mean it was hard
for me to accept the person that I was

104
[00:08:05],260 –> [00:08:10],599
with my Falls and some of them are very
hard to change and like i said earlier

105
[00:08:10],600 –> [00:08:16],180
i’m still working on them i think i make
good progress on most of them you know a

106
[00:08:16],180 –> [00:08:20],170
few of them i still need to work on and
hopefully I can get there

107
[00:08:20],170 –> [00:08:26],710
how did you go about overcoming some of
these I’ve had good influences in my

108
[00:08:26],710 –> [00:08:33],69
life my mother my grand and people like
you people like Eric you know you know

109
[00:08:33],70 –> [00:08:37],330
some people that have been on
instrumental in my life and help me make

110
[00:08:37],330 –> [00:08:42],820
the right decisions and grooming me in
trying to show me the way and it’s been

111
[00:08:42],820 –> [00:08:49],270
very helpful to me and really want i
started to see to things that that you

112
[00:08:49],270 –> [00:08:52],689
were trying to teach me and people were
trying to teach you once i really

113
[00:08:52],690 –> [00:08:57],940
started taking that seriously is when I
started to see to change you know that I

114
[00:08:57],940 –> [00:09:04],30
didn’t have to be person that i was i
could be the same person just a better

115
[00:09:04],30 –> [00:09:05],709
more mature person

116
[00:09:05],710 –> [00:09:10],000
well thank you danny thank you so I mean
there was something else that happened

117
[00:09:10],000 –> [00:09:13],390
along the way you were in a car accident

118
[00:09:13],390 –> [00:09:20],800
yeah that was difficult to learn to walk
again talk again doctor told me I was

119
[00:09:20],800 –> [00:09:26],890
going to be able to play basketball I
said doc I’m gonna do whatever I have to

120
[00:09:26],890 –> [00:09:30],860
do I want to be out there that first
game that bears game

121
[00:09:30],860 –> [00:09:34],100
and he said starting at point guard
number five

122
[00:09:34],100 –> [00:09:38],570
Danny Murphy I was on that floor that
was a very difficult time that I mean

123
[00:09:38],570 –> [00:09:43],490
and my brother was involved in a car
accident as well you know I had to be

124
[00:09:43],490 –> [00:09:48],20
strong for him and as his older brother
trying to show him you know if I can

125
[00:09:48],20 –> [00:09:55],130
make it to it so can you my own my hair
your condition was a little worse than

126
[00:09:55],130 –> [00:10:00],920
his had a couple of broken ribs and a
broken shoulder and i just wanted to

127
[00:10:00],920 –> [00:10:05],209
show him that you can get through
anything and I didn’t I told the doctor

128
[00:10:05],210 –> [00:10:11],000
i play at that game and I did squid 32
points never forget there’s a lot of

129
[00:10:11],000 –> [00:10:15],620
roadblocks that I went through though I
mean when your parents split up you know

130
[00:10:15],620 –> [00:10:21],350
at 14 years old you’re like well you
know how can I really deal with this and

131
[00:10:21],350 –> [00:10:28],640
I just had to warm you know stick with
it learned lived and try to be the best

132
[00:10:28],640 –> [00:10:34],220
person and I can be the car accident was
another that was on I wants a setback

133
[00:10:34],220 –> [00:10:37],760
because it’s never about to set back
it’s all about to get back

134
[00:10:38],270 –> [00:10:43],40
losing people along the way people that
you love and care about that you know

135
[00:10:43],40 –> [00:10:48],439
I’ve lost friends family has been a lot
of struggles to go through and I think

136
[00:10:48],440 –> [00:10:53],480
for the most part i’ve gotten through
more I’ve been strong for myself my

137
[00:10:53],480 –> [00:10:59],270
family members my friends and no I hope
that they’re appreciative of that and

138
[00:10:59],270 –> [00:11:03],620
there are proud to say that i was there
for him when I when I was so there’s any

139
[00:11:03],620 –> [00:11:07],340
parts of your dreams so far that haven’t
quite worked out the way you planned it

140
[00:11:07],340 –> [00:11:12],290
man food may wear this is hard work and
dedication pale

141
[00:11:12],290 –> [00:11:17],329
I hope that’s true because i work hard
i’m dedicated to warm everything I do

142
[00:11:17],330 –> [00:11:21],380
and I would say there’s anything that
hasn’t worked out but there are some

143
[00:11:21],380 –> [00:11:25],820
things that I’m hoping that will
eventually work out so i would say

144
[00:11:25],820 –> [00:11:28],150
everything’s okay for now and

145
[00:11:28],150 –> [00:11:33],430
some things are still left unfinished so
I really couldn’t say that there’s

146
[00:11:33],430 –> [00:11:38],709
nothing that hasn’t worked out yet so

basketball summer league this summer I’m
gonna be on a part of a summer league

153
[00:12:01],960 –> [00:12:08],350
i’m also going to be a volunteer at the
basketball can’t and you know maybe i

154
[00:12:08],350 –> [00:12:12],130
can turn that into this something you
know to love the game for me is there

155
[00:12:12],130 –> [00:12:13],240
still

156
[00:12:13],240 –> [00:12:18],910
I love the competition that would truly
be a dream at 25 years old maybe too

157
[00:12:18],910 –> [00:12:25],60
long get an opportunity to play
basketball on a more regular basis

158
[00:12:25],60 –> [00:12:30],40
instead of just when I’m done working on
the weekends that would be on truly a

159
[00:12:30],40 –> [00:12:34],780
dream come true because basketball is my
first love for the professional side i

160
[00:12:34],780 –> [00:12:39],730
don’t know you know maybe I cannot be in
a better position maybe next year town

161
[00:12:39],730 –> [00:12:45],250
you who knows to be honest Joe I really
don’t try to home say I want to do this

162
[00:12:45],250 –> [00:12:51],310
at that body is time I just kinda take
every day day by day day by day

163
[00:12:51],310 –> [00:12:55],30
so is there any last thoughts you’d like
to share like to thank the people that

164
[00:12:55],30 –> [00:12:56],740

[00:12:56],740 –> [00:13:01],540
I’d like to thank you for having me like
21 give a shout-out to the other people

166
[00:13:01],540 –> [00:13:05],500
that have been on here i think that’s a
cool thing the future people that you

167
[00:13:05],500 –> [00:13:09],880
have on here i think i think the dreams
podcast will you success I think it’s

168
[00:13:09],880 –> [00:13:14],20
something that people shouldn’t breathe
people and dreams our own could be a

169
[00:13:14],20 –> [00:13:18],819
very very sensitive thing it takes a lot
of or be able to talk to people that

170
[00:13:18],820 –> [00:13:24],10
they don’t real with known express
themselves until people allowed to

171
[00:13:24],10 –> [00:13:30],220
people are afraid to admit what their
real dreams are there just contain with

172
[00:13:30],220 –> [00:13:31],330
where they’re at

173
[00:13:31],330 –> [00:13:36],230
some people are too afraid to admit that
you know I’d rather be on

174
[00:13:36],230 –> [00:13:41],480
playing basketball vs. working in a
warehouse some people would think you

175
[00:13:41],480 –> [00:13:43],220
know maybe I’m too old

176
[00:13:43],220 –> [00:13:49],220
maybe i can do that no more but it’s
important that i think people try to one

177
[00:13:49],220 –> [00:13:54],770
arm get this type of stuff out that your
dreams are real long thing and if you’re

178
[00:13:54],770 –> [00:13:58],670
able to accomplish them you know you
don’t ever have to feel like you can’t

179
[00:13:58],670 –> [00:14:04],160

focused you can do it well then I really
