What Was The Most Difficult Pain That You Overcame?

by AJ Mihrzad on

Tim Ferriss’s recent vulnerability about being sexually abused inspired me to a new level of Braveness!

I will explain why shortly…

I had the honor of attending Date With Destiny with him.
It was truly a Life-Changing experience!

I’ve always admired Tim for his ability to break down complex subjects into Simple processes that have greatly enhanced my life and millions of others.

He is definitely the world’s top expert on Self Optimization.

His 1st book the 4 Hour workweek inspired me to start my first business.

His podcasts improved so many areas of my life and I’ve become a better communicator just by studying his world-class interviewing skills.

I recently finished listening to his most Vulnerable podcast episode where he openly discusses being Sexually abused from the ages of 2 to 4 by his babysitter’s son.

I’ve been following him for over a decade and I was shocked to hear him open up about such a sensitive subject.

After all this time, I had no idea that he went through such a traumatic experience!

I, myself experienced abuse and trauma as a child so it hit close to home.

For me, the episode was both insightful and therapeutic as I reflected on all of the pain & healing I’ve experienced since I was a child.

Tim also shared all of the resources, techniques & plant medicines he used to aid his healing process.

Some of them were quite unconventional.

I decided to take his advice and invest in testing some of the healing modalities over the next few months.

If you have experienced trauma or know someone who is going through a tough time,

I posted the podcast down below and a list of proven healing resources depending on how open-minded you are.

I have so much respect for people that have gone through extreme trauma, survived it,
and now help others overcome their own.

After doing some research, I’ve realized that over 60% of people have experienced trauma as a child.

We have all been hurt by someone else at one point in our lives.

Some decide to be a victim.

They constantly blame others for their shortcomings and never do the work to heal and help others.

Victims are driven by significance.

The constant story of being hurt by someone, makes them feel important.

Some decide to be a perpetrator.

They devote their life to inflicting pain on others.

Like a virus, they pass their pain on to every person they encounter, thus continuing the cycle of trauma being passed on from Person to Person.

Generation to Generation.

The most Hurt people

Hurt the most people.

I’m truly inspired by those who break the chain of pain.

One day they decide to take Full Responsibility and do the work towards bettering themselves.

They made a choice to turn their suffering into something meaningful and positive.

They devote their lives to Healing

They refuse to be a victim!

And would not Dare hurt another human!

They are the True Superheroes.

There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.

If you have overcame pain and broke the chain of passing on to someone else.

First off,

I Appreciate you and I Salute you 🙏

Second, I would love for you to Share…
