When people go to describe this guest on Rewired Mind, they may want to say attorney, speaker, author etc. but Kirk Nurmi would just like to simply be known as a human being. The quote “no one wants to die with music still left inside them” by Dr. Wayne Dyer has been an inspiration for Kirk.
He famously was the defense attorney in the Jodi Arias trial, which lasted from January 2013- April 2015. During this 2 ½ year period, he faced threats and public scrutiny, leading him to step away from law and even getting diagnosed with cancer as a result of the pressure from the trial.
As a result of the cancer, Kirk changed his focus to make his happiness a priority, something he had not done in the years prior to the diagnosis. The biggest question that he had to answer was “Am I Happy?” This forced him to examine areas of his life and make decisions based on how he answered that question.
A book he would recommend is I Can See Clearly Now by Wayne Dyer.
