By Satori Prime: Guy and Ilan Ferdman

Show Notes: SatoriPrime.com/35 Ask if the outlook that you developed because of a traumatic experience is helping you TODAY, or holding you back? (click to tweet) Everyone has traumatic experiences in their past. Those horrible moments you don’t even like to think about from your history, that come back to haunt you. While for most those moments leave an indelible mark, there is a better way forward. The temptation is to let those moments scar you, and affect the way that you behave, for the rest of your life. But that is not necessary. We think we need to be extra-careful about something because of a bad scare or a horrible situation sometime, when in reality, we’re only holding ourselves back because of an irrationally overbearing fear based on that circumstance. This is where we have to learn to forgive ourselves or others, and move on with our lives, understanding that we could be scarred by that moment, but we do not need to be, and we will only hurt ourselves if we allow ourselves to be. On today’s episode, I’m sharing the story of the worst 20 minutes of my life, and how I worked to not allow it to scar the rest of my life. If you have anger or hate in your heart and mind toward anyone, it’s only hurting you (click to tweet) The Cliff Notes: There are traumatic experiences we all experience, the memory of which is holding us back Unless you actively choose to NOT to let traumatic experiences affect how you behave, the experience will change you Fear-based programming causes us to relive our bad experiences over and over again Sharing the traumatic story can lessen its hold on you Ask if the outlook that you developed because of the traumatic experience is helping you TODAY, or holding you back? If you have anger or hate in your heart and mind toward anyone, it’s only hurting you If you want to make a shift in the world, go out and forgive people Forgiveness is one of the most incredible acts any human being can perform Just being able to forgive people can change the world Where you’re unwilling to forgive is where unease is going to grow inside of you Nobody has to forgive anybody. We GET to forgive people You get what you need, not what you want, and you can’t control how it will come to you Teach your mind what to notice about life, so that the mind can liberate itself Choose to forgive yourself and others, for the possibility of the life that you truly want and desire Choose to forgive yourself and others, for the possibility of the life that you truly want and desire (click to tweet) Show Notes: SatoriPrime.com/35Learn more about your ad choices.
