How do you repair the broken pieces inside yourself to find fortune in failure?
When you fail or make a mistake, it can feel like you’re broken. But everyone fails at some point. And recovering isn’t only about bouncing back. It’s also learning how to bounce forward, so you can find the treasure inside the failure. Instead of seeing only your mistakes, I want you to embrace the philosophy of kintsugi.
Today, I’m going to talk about how you can apply this ancient Japanese art to fixing the cracked pieces inside yourself. Many of you know my journey of how a traumatic brain injury led to me being called “the boy with the broken brain”. I know what it’s like to feel broken. Limited. And I want to give you the tools to help you repair whatever feels damaged in your life.
Kintsugi fixes damaged pottery with gold, making the imperfections beautiful. Maybe you can’t fill the cracks in your life with gold or silver, but you can fill them with patience, knowledge, and resilience. If you want to learn how to not only repair the pieces that feel broken, but transform into a stronger, better version of yourself, this episode is for you.
