What I discuss with Sarah Fay:

Almost one in five people (47.1 million) in the US have been diagnosed with a mental health condition. That number increased by about 1.5 million from last year. More may follow with a mounting sense of isolation in our fragmented country. But is a mental diagnosis the path to healing or a self-fulfilling prophecy?

Sarah suffered from six mental illness diagnoses for almost thirty years, all labeled because of the DSM. She realized the DSM is seriously flawed, even useless, but it's all we have through that process.

Why You Must Feel to Heal w/ John R. Miles Episode 142

May 27, 2022

John R. Miles - why you must feel to heal and 6 ways you can do it. | Brought to you by Babbel (https://babbel.com/passionstruck) for up to 60% off.

If you found this podcast, you are likely searching for how to heal your emotional pain of some sort. You may wonder how it is even possible. As I explain in the episode, yes—emotional healing is always possible if we make the deliberate choice to tackle our pain. I discuss why we often try to numb the pain instead of confronting it, and I provide six ways to approach that healing.

The reality is that following the emotional pain you are healing from, you are forever changed. I realize that can feel scary, but it can also be incredibly freeing as you experience post-traumatic growth.

This is one of the most mind-altering, jaw-dropping, and inspiring episodes I've ever released, and I really appreciate Kegan for being so vulnerable.

Kegan “SMurF” Gill is a former US Navy F/A-18E strike fighter pilot. He endured the fastest survived ejection in the history of naval aviation. Despite devastating injuries, he returned to flying Super Hornets until the effects of his traumatic brain injury and a diagnosis of delayed-onset PTSD ended his military career. He is now on a journey to heal his mind, body, and soul.

To Risk It All

The decision-makers Stavridis profiles range from the American Revolutionary War to the present day, for example:

  • Doris “Dorie” Miller, was the first Black American awarded the Navy Cross after he bravely remained on a sinking ship at Pearl Harbor to help his crewmates.
  • Rear Admiral Michelle Howard, whose ability to simultaneously delegate authority yet bear full responsibility was instrumental in the 2009 rescue of Captain Richard Phillips from Somali pirates.
  • Civil War Navy admiral David Farragut, whose adaptability to new technologies and decisive actions based on calculated odds defined his success.

Why We Become What We Think About w/ John R. Miles EP 139

Why We Become What We Think About w/ John R. Miles EP 139

May 20, 2022

John R. Miles - Why we become what we think about and seven ways you can build positive beliefs | Brought to you by Masterworks (https://www.masterworks.io/ code passion)

Notable American radio speaker and author Earl Nightingale once said, “We become what we think about.” This truthful statement embodies and emphasizes just how vital our mindsets and beliefs are to creating the lives we live.

Why do we become our beliefs?

A belief is any cognitive notion that is held as accurate. It is the acceptance that something exists, even though its existence cannot be proved. This means that the potency of a belief is entirely dependent on a person’s choice to accept or reject it.

Take, for example, two people with similar qualifications who are given $1000 to use for starting a new business. One of them believes they can start a business, profit, and earn thousands of dollars — a beneficial belief. In contrast, the other person believes $1,000 is too little to start anything of meaning and fails to start anything — a restricting belief.
