INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“We've seen ourselves at our best. We've seen ourselves at our worst. And then we see ourselves, a lot of the time, kind of every day, kind of vacillating between the two. And the truth of the matter is, we know we're capable of more. We know we have some untapped potential.” – Brian Buffini

“You were designed, you were built and you were created as a unique person with a unique set of potential and gifts and talents inside of you.” – Brian Buffini

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela

“If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse.” – Jim Rohn

“Envy is the ulcer of the soul.” – Socrates

“Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they're afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, it carries a responsibility with it, it's much easier to procrastinate and live on the ‘someday I'll’ philosophy.” – Denis Waitley

“It's impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you fail by default.” – J.K. Rowling

“Success is almost totally dependent on drive. The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.” – Denis Waitley

“People often say motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing. That's why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

“Most people want to change their circumstances but don't want to change themselves. But changing yourself is where the magic is. That's where the value is.” – Brian Buffini

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“There's a certain reality that whatever we resist is going to persist in our life. The more we avoid, or deny or suppress the wounds of our life, the more they continually show up.” – Joe Ehrmann

“The mind or our subconscious doesn't hide things from itself. They continually stay there. They keep playing. Those old wounds and the messages that came from those wounds continue to play.” – Joe Ehrmann

“Life really is about digging for the deeper truth and the meanings of life.” – Joe Ehrmann

“You've got to give yourself permission to really feel what you feel. Emotion is energy.” – Joe Ehrmann

Empathy is part of our human nature. It's the capacity to feel what other people are feeling. It's what separates animals from human beings. It's part of our nature; but it also has to be nurtured.” Joe Ehrmann

Topics discussed include why we often build rigid defense mechanisms and destructive life patterns to cover our wounds, how we can transform these patterns and become wounded healers and what role faith takes in this journey.

We've got to name these wounds. We've got to enter into them, touch them, heal them, verbalize and then release them so that we can be the people that we were created to be.” Joe Ehrmann

 

Wounds from your past can have a devastating impact on the way you feel about yourself and others. In this episode, the second in a special series of six, Brian and Joe Ehrmann teach how to identify and heal those wounds that make it difficult for you to truly love and be loved. Topics discussed include how a deeply personal experience with his young son led Joe to reflect on his own relationship with his father; how an incident in Brian’s childhood inspired his motivation to succeed in life; and why healing is not about affixing blame, but about understanding what shaped you.

 

YOU WILL LEARN:

  • The three basic questions we all have about identity, intimacy and industry.
  • How we can be wounded by our nature, our nurture and our culture.
  • Why the number one wound in our society is the father wound.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE:

“I think all of us come into this world with three basic questions. And the first is a question of identity: Who am I? The second is a question of intimacy: Who will love me? And the third is one of industry: What can I do with my life?” – Joe Ehrmann

“Most people want to change their circumstances, but they don't want to change themselves. The challenge is, if you change yourself, circumstances will change also.” – Brian Buffini

“If you have a pebble in your shoe and you leave it there, you're eventually going to develop a limp. And you can learn to walk through life with a limp, but it's better to go back, take it out, then learn to walk properly and then maybe help others get this pebble out of their shoe.” – Brian Buffini

“We share our woundedness with others to offer that as a hope for healing.” – Joe Ehrmann

“A wound is some unresolved issue. And it's not the fact that we're wounded in life. It's a decision we make as adults to deal with them.” – Joe Ehrmann

“All of us have woven into us this deep need for satisfaction. To be unconditionally loved, to be known for who and what we are and to be accepted for that.” – Joe Ehrmann
