Embracing Pain to Avoid Suffering - Brian Bogert
Show Notes

It is nothing but natural to respond to suffering and shame with suppression, given how we are wired to think starting from our early years. But as a matter of fact, this very notion deprives us from embracing our authentic selves. Brian Bogert has a unique story to share about this and how he discovered the beauty in life by embracing the ugly. 

Every single high-achieving individual has been stuck, frustrated, unsure, and angry as they start feeling their efforts barely move the needle forward on progress. They know they have much greater potential, yet they fall short of the end zone repeatedly. Brian Bogert teaches leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals how to become more aware and more intentional, thus allowing them to become who they already are, their most authentic selves. Brian provides a roadmap to ease the journey to self-realization. He ensures professionals understand the difference in using their time not in minutes, but with INTENTION. He opens the door to perspective, motivation and direction by sharing with leaders how to reprogram their brains, defy their own negative thinking, and how to stop making excuses. When we become who we are, we unlock what is within and leave “good enough” behind us.


In this episode, Brian spits out hard facts on how our defense mechanisms are destructive and detrimental to our growth. He talks about the virtue of selfishness and recognizing ourselves as perfect, irreplaceable individuals. Join us and listen in!

Tweetable Quotes:

“We all must choose our pain, or our suffering will choose us. So as I look at it, I want to influence and control my destiny, which means I get to have active choice, and what that looks like.” - Brian Bogert

“We literally protect ourselves in so many different ways because of our fear of what the fucking world is going to do to us, or how people are going to react. But again, we're fabricating a reality that doesn't exist. And true strength actually hides behind vulnerability.” - Brian Bogert
