EP135 The Real Power to Heal
In this episode, I share with you about a very personal experience that taught me where we all need to look to find the real power needed to heal ourselves.
KC: Welcome to the Business of Life podcast. Keith Callahan here and either welcome back or welcome for the first time if you’re just joining us for the first time.
So today, I want to talk about really a personal experience that I just had and something with somebody very close to me. So, I have a friend who is very close to me and right now, she is in mental hospital for – she got addicted to medication. So she had a baby about five years ago and had post-partum depression, started taking medication for that. And then sort of things just progressed. She didn’t get off that medication. She started seeing a therapist and they put her on stronger and stronger medication.
And then recently, she was just all duped up with this medication and she wanted to get off. She tried to get off and couldn’t get off it, tried to just like wean herself off and kind of went loopy and wound up in the hospital right now, the mental hospital to detox from it.
So, they don’t plan on her being there for a long time. So anyways, I was there visiting yesterday and her husband was there. And right when I walked in, the first thing that I said was, “Wow! You look – like you look really good.” I didn’t – because I expected her to look a little rougher than she had. And her husband said, “This is the best that she has looked in literally like a year and a half.”
And I was just thinking about that and over the last couple of days, she had received an enormous amount of love and support from her family and friends because prior to that, she had kept everything in.
And we can go to all these therapies, we can go to all these – we can take these pills, we can go to these classes, we can do all these healing work, but the amount of healing that comes from the love and support of family and friends has the real power to heal us.
So sure, we need all these other things but we’re in such a disconnected society, we’re in a society that we kind of keep everything to ourselves. I remember like four or five years ago going and visiting my in-laws down in New Jersey. They live in New Jersey. They live in a cul de sac with only like four or five houses. They live on a cul de sac with four or five houses on it and they don’t even know the names of the people who live on this cul de sac and they’ve lived there for ten years. Imagine that!
Just a disconnected society like we’re all going about, all doing our own thing. And I’ve had so many different times in my life where I’m that type, like I’m a loner type. I like to do my own thing. I like to be myself a lot of times.
But the power of community, the power of love, the power of support, the power of just being around and with other human beings, the power of that to lift you up is just – it’s unbelievable. So, love as a part of just – you know what, I put it down as a part of healing but yeah, like love and connection, the importance of that.
And that just popped into my mind. I didn’t want – I wasn’t planning on mentioning this. But if you’ve never read the book, Tuesdays with Morrie, definitely check that out. So Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom, that’s his name. Unbelievable book. So, there you go. Love as a – love and connection as a means of healing.
All right. Have a beautiful, beautiful day. Peace!
KC: Hey, Keith here, and today I have a free gift for you. Listen this free gift is a list of the 12 most influential books that I’ve ever read. These are the books that have helped me to create the mindset, learn the philosophies, learn the skills to really create this big, beautiful, life that we’re living now.
I read a crazy amount of books, I really do. I’ve probably read thousands of books and these are the top 12 books that – they’re the ones that I go to, they’re the ones that I work with over, and over, and over again. They are highlighted, outlined, dog-eared. And I put this list together for you because I want it to be a shortcut.
I don’t want you to have to – you don’t have to go out and read the thousands and thousands of books. These are the 12 that I highly recommend. I have a detailed review for each book, explaining why I recommend them, why I like them, when I worked with them in my life, what part of my life they helped me to improve.
So I put this together for you, and made it super each for you to get this list. All you have to do is send a text to the number 33444 and then in the body of that text, type in “12books” with no space. So that’s the number “12books”. Again, send the text message to the number, address it to 33444 and then type in “12books” as the message and just send that. And that’ll get you setup to receive those top 12 most influential books that have had the biggest impact on my life.
KC: Today’s episode is brought to you by our sister podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. So All About Beachbody Coaching really allows us to do this podcast without having all those annoying commercials in the beginning for you. So All About Beachbody Coaching, the Beachbody business that Amy and I run, actually funds this podcast.
So yes, it does cost money to run this podcast, we do not charge you anything, we don’t throw in commercials or anything like that, it really is, it’s funded by our business and by our other podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. And for me, I’m just eternally grateful for this opportunity because it’s allowed me to really create the life that I love to live.
It’s given me the opportunity to do what I want, when I want, with who I want, and even deeper than that, it’s allowed me to help others to create the same for themselves. It’s allowed me to help hundreds of other people become part time or full time Beachbody coaches, to leave that corporate 9 to 5 job and create passive income in their lives.
And really there’s nothing like that. It’s cool when you have success, it’s so much more rewarding when you help others. So I mention this or a few reasons, the first reason is, that’s actually the way that I work with people and mentor people. I don’t do anything outside of Beachbody coaching because I know that it’s such a powerful life changing tool.
So if you’re curious about working with me, interested in working one-on-one, interested in creating the type of life that you wanna live, I suggest swinging over there. The other reason is, even if somebody’s just curious, like you’ve heard about Beachbody, you know there’s a lot of Beachbody coaches out there. Maybe some of them you get a little annoyed with.
It really dives into what this business is really about, which is life transformation. So if you’re just curious, swing over there. And then the other piece is, if you’re really considering becoming a Beachbody coach, I highly, highly recommend you listen to that first.
Alright, much love guys. Again, that is the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast, our sister podcast.
ANNOUNCER: Thank you for listening to the Business of Life Podcast. Apply what you learned today and you’ll be one step closer to creating the life you love to live.
