In this episode of The Miracle You podcast with your host Vince Kramer of Imagine Miracles and his very special guest Cary Johnson talk about the events in life that get our attention and why. Cary shares how he finally learned after two separate brushes with death that there are only two kinds of days Good Ones and Great Ones.
When people hear Cary’s life story, they ask him – “What haven’t you done?” The answer is always “Not Much”. He grew up in the Pittsburgh Suburbs, after Penn State, he was on track to continue working in his father’s business — Recession hit –
He joined the Air Force, completed his BS, Officer Training and Flight School and spent the next 15 years flying, scheduling, training and having a blast – then the adventure began.
I was honored to meet and fly with Cary in the Air Force. For all you Top Gun Fans, his call sign is “Frosty.”

Three Key Points:
We are meant to enjoy our lives and what we do. When we are sharing those things we are good at and love to do, we are at our happiest and most fulfilled times. Life wasn’t meant to be good enough.
We are constantly getting reminders that is time to follow our callings and to pay attention to what we are feeling. Despite what we have been taught in the past, we are meant to find joy in every aspect of our lives.
Our wake up calls are meant to bring us into a new understanding. They encourage us to look at things differently and to then follow the promptings or messages that help us see and lead us into that new way of living and hopefully into a new way of being.
