Episode 87 – How To Understand The True Meaning Behind Every Cathartic Moment That Happens In Your Life with Dave Hollis

Released on May 8th, 2021

When we’re at our lowest point, we often feel helpless and hope that some kind of miracle will just happen. But what we might have forgotten is that we actually have everything we need to fix things. We are the miracle. We have the tools inside us. Don’t just wait till someone comes and throws you a rope for you to climb up, build your own ladder instead. Think about it, where you are today didn’t just happen like that. It took pain, struggle, and tears. Push yourself beyond what you think you can handle. In fact, forget what you think, and trust what you believe. It will reconfigure your capacity to overcome.   

You need to wake yourself up and just do what has to be done. Struggle, fall, and rise again. If you can push yourself into spaces that are truly uncomfortable and challenging, you will be stronger when you emerge on the other side. Facing fear and hardship, the choice is whether to experience post-traumatic stress, or post-traumatic growth. If you don’t grow, you can’t be fulfilled. If you want fulfilment, then you have to change your relationship with failure.

As Dave Hollis says, ‘Those that can see the obstacles, the challenges, and the discomfort as the vehicle to becoming who they’d hope to be, they’re the ones who evolve and manifest their ultimate potential.’ If you can contend with these dichotomies – hope and grief, excitement and fear, then eventually you’ll see that that is a source of strength in itself. The journey ahead will take you up steep slopes and down into valleys, but you must always keep moving.

These are the tips that Dave Hollis leaves us in this episode of The Resilient Minds Podcast.
