Veterans Path to Success

Veterans Path to Success

This opportunity and program could not have come at a better time. As a matter of fact, I feel like it was a blessing. This past week was more than a life changer for me. The program gave me insight into how to react to challenges, situations and arguments. I now have the tools to make a difference within my life and the life of my family. I will no longer ponder on the ‘what ifs’ and enclose my mind in the negativity of the events that have happened in my life. I will be a better husband, father and friend by giving more time to those that have always extended their hand to lift me up. The Veterans Path to Success Program at Johnson & Johnson’s Human Performance Institute really impacted my perception of my best self in a positive way.” – Army Sgt. First Class (Ret.), Henry Escobedo
