The effects of life challenges can negatively impact our mental and physical health. This is the most important issue of our time. (For more on this point visit my Vlog.)
Through my work, I’ve come to the conclusion that we’re all born our true selves. The accumulation of negative life experiences over time however, can have a way of eclipsing our true self. Adverse events occurring early in life can have a disproportionate impact on our adult lives. Our true nature always lies inside. But it can get buried, blocked, or walled off to protect itself from more pain. As a result of such unfortunate experiences and barriers, we get disconnected from our true selves and in our relationships with others.
It’s only by using our strength and courage to confront our challenges – ultimately to face ourselves and chip away at our walls – that we can triumph and reclaim our true selves. Once this reconnection happens, nothing can pull us away from who we really are again. When each man connects with his core self like this – with who he really is in this way, he connects not only with his own humanity, but with the humanity in others. It’s as if rising up out of our own ashes recreates us like the phoenix, better, stronger, forever opening our hearts and minds for endless possibility.
Having walked the walk (I’m a survivor of long-term childhood sexual abuse), I believe in resilience, in healing life’s challenges, and reclaiming our true selves. So much so, that I’ve made it my life’s work to usher others along this path. My goal for you is to cultivate a healthy, authentic relationship with yourself and others. Nothing is more important. In fact, a rich and ever-growing amount of research supports the idea that having a sense of connection to self and others is at the heart of creating a happy, fulfilling, and successful life. Did you know that both depression and isolation each carry more risk for early death than smoking! Connection is the promise of my work – to help you overcome life’s challenges, reconnecting with your true self and others; and in doing so, empowering you to maximize your full potential in both your personal and professional life.
