Have you ever pushed down pain to the point that you could no longer feel? Or pushed fear down to the point where you could no longer conceive of doing what you fear? Or allowed potential discomfort to paralyze you? I have. And it almost destroyed me. The pursuit of a pain-free life will do that to you.
How to Live a Pain Free Life

Life is painful sometimes. My aunt Mary passed away a couple of years ago from a two-year battle with cancer. Her last days were unimaginably painful. While we miss her tremendously, we all breathed a sigh of relief for her sake when she was taken home.

I’ve never experienced the kind of physical, emotional, or spiritual pain she went through. But I have been through pain. Because of the things I have done, risks I have taken, and people I have trusted. For the longest time, I had no clue what to do with it, but over time, I learned how to use pain.

Some people aren’t willing to go through pain. These poor souls will never reach the bottom. They will never cry tears of defeat. Or feel the thrill of bouncing back to reach new heights.

If you want to live a pain-free life, just follow the outline in the show today. But, I doubt you’ll want to…in fact, I think you’ll like the second part of the show better, because you embrace challenges. You accept pain as inevitable in a life lived fully.
