Last weekend, I encountered two profound insights about the human condition that truly sparked my interest. 

At a social event, a conversation with a high net-worth financial manager unfolded around a puzzling question: Why do people who seem to ‘have it all’ still need guidance to find fulfillment and recognition?

Often, people achieve their dreams—whether it’s accumulating wealth, gaining fame, or winning awards—without addressing underlying feelings of inadequacy. This unresolved pain can lead them to subconsciously sabotage their own success. 

For instance, someone might buy their dream home but ruin the relationships or family that they wanted to get the home for in the first place. Or they might achieve fame, only to make a public mistake that tarnishes their image. They might win the Oscar and then punch the host. Get the fame and influence they wanted then say or do something that gets them cancelled, get in trouble with the law. Create wealth they wanted but then get addicted to gambling, sex, etc.

It’s crucial to understand: No level of external success can compensate for unresolved internal struggles. Hidden wounds will surface, disrupting lives unless they are healed. This cycle of unfulfilled success was evident in the stories shared by the financial manager, who had witnessed it time and again.

This concept was vividly illustrated in the movie ‘Monkey Man,’. He knew what he wanted to do but was unable to until he got on the other side of his trauma. Once he allowed love to heal the trauma that had bound him, he lived into the potential he always had within him, a new person emerged.

True freedom—freedom to love, to choose, to feel, to live into your potential —comes from healing the wounds that keep you hostage. 

Healing Is Possible:

Healing is possible for anyone who wants to heal.
