Description

Michael Unbroken is a coach, speaker, advocate for survivors of childhood trauma, and the best-selling author of ‘Think Unbroken: Understanding and Overcoming Childhood Trauma.'

In this episode, Michael shares his experience with childhood abuse; how he overcame it through a combination of forgiveness and self-development; how he built a successful business and lost 100 pounds; and how he helps others work through the impacts of trauma today.

Michael also speaks about:

- Being raised by a drug-addicted mother and a racist grandmother, leading him to a life of addiction and chaos

- How genetic and energetic factors play a role in passing down behaviors and experiences from one generation to another

- How forgiveness is for oneself, not for others – and how it helped him find release and freedom

- How he achieved his goal to make $100k per year legally by age 26

- The teacher that changed and saved his life

- Confronting his own victim mentality and adopting a tough approach to personal growth

- The negative impact of the American food system and the government's misleading food pyramid

- His journey of starting with a yoga program, losing weight, and eventually becoming a certified personal trainer and nutritionist

- How he moved away from religion and found spirituality, tapping into the universe through meditation and visualization

- The importance of taking risks that lead to unexpected opportunities

- How childhood trauma, regardless of its severity, can have long-lasting effects on mental health, addiction, and physical well-being

- The importance of intervening and speaking up against abuse when you see it
