We are often sold on comfort in today's society, but discomfort is actually necessary for achieving growth and success. I’ve got Dr. Nneka Unachukwu on the show to talk about becoming strategic in handling discomfort and understanding that every piece of pain has a purpose. We highlight the importance of getting unstuck by making choices and then taking action. We also address the challenges of looking within to confront internal wounds and the value of observing situations without letting emotions get in the way. The hard times in life can feel dark and hopeless, but they can also lead to growth and positive changes.


In this episode you’ll learn:

  • How can I get unstuck?

  • What are some tips for finding purpose in difficult experiences?

  • What is a self-audit?

  • How can I recover from failure?
