But what if they could experience true relief from this paralyzing anxiety, fear and confusion? What if they didn’t have to suffer for another several decades before finding confidence in their true self and the peace that results?
Is this possible for young people? Is there a place for them to learn new life strategies and create a different experience for themselves?
Do they have to wait until they have a crisis in mid-life?
I used to wonder. But after witnessing what my now 20-year old son went through, I’m certain that these deep changes can take place at a young age.
I watched with a great sense of helplessness myself as I saw my son go through extreme challenges of physical crisis, social crisis and severe depression–over a three-year period. And he has had to learn a set of big life shifts to not get stuck there.
So I want you to hear Jonathan's story, so you can see what I’m talking about.
Over the last 3 years, he's been through a lot!
He had a series of concussions that stopped his entire life as he knew it.
No more hanging out with friends.
No more going to school.
No more sports.
Three things he loved and enjoyed.
It led to times where he was in so much physical and emotional pain that he couldn’t go to school and he couldn’t even seem to get himself out of bed until just before dinner.
And it was tricky, since Dads can't just tell their sons what to do...so I tried to steer him to all the best Jedi masters and solutions I could (mental, emotional, psychological, physical) and he learned from them but often went in big spurts of ups and downs.
Until finally he put the last piece together--neutrality--along with all the other things he had to learn the hard, painful way.
And when the last piece fell in place, he shifted almost over-night.
He went from being a high school dropout who didn't even want to take his GED test, to a few months later starting college and thriving with friends, being physically fit and even being a youth leader.
After working on this for nine months before releasing the pilot version...last fall we hosted a special webinar which covers the FIVE BIG SHIFTS anyone can make to become CCR (Confident, Calm, and Real).
And to say it was a real “eye-opener” for those in attendance is an understatement!
