I recently spent 5 months through an intensive study on leadership and understanding emotional intelligence.

What I learned about the way I’ve been beating myself up emotionally my entire life astounded me.  The tools I learned on how to overcome emotional injuries have not only given me complete freedom, but set me up to win in all areas of my life.

It’s truly one of the best things I’ve ever done for myself –  learning the tools for living a fulfilled life under any emotional stress or breakdown.

This week on the School of Greatness I go in-depth with a leader in research on the effects of emotional damage.

He is a licensed psychologist, speaker and author.  He provides a definitive guide to healing from emotional injury.  Please welcome the author of Emotional First Aid, Dr. Guy Winch.

Wow! Exceptional interview ~ I hope you get to book more in depth conversations with Dr. Winch. His characterization of the wound and how it manifests itself in our behaviors was completely fascinating.  The strategies you discussed to relieve the injury or support the healing process was powerful.  I will be saving this audio to my book collage since there were so many actionable and timeless practices and considerations to revisit. Thank you

Wow @Lewis, what an amazing episode. Definitely one of the best you did so far.

I especially like the exercise to write down everything you consider yourself to be, to get really clear about yourself and your abilities.


I just did that exercise and it feels like a great start in the new year!


Best regards,
Jan

Thanks for this episode, Lewis! Being someone who has a degree in psychology, I really appreciated what was discussed here. I think this is such an important topic because, as Dr. Winch says, emotional injuries are not as obvious as physical injuries, but they can certainly be just as damaging, if not more so. I think that people either don't realize the effects of emotional injuries or feel ashamed of them, that they often go untreated. So anytime we can bring light to the matter is a great thing. Thanks again!

Just finished the podcast and that great interview with Dr. Guy Winch. The Rumination segment was especially interesting. I have seen/done this many times, and the negative effects are absolutely real.

I know I emailed you about this but others might be interested.


I have spent years being a damaged individual and two books that have been very helpful that I have read twice are Emotional Fitness by Janice Berger and The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown. 


I look forward to reading Guy's book as well but will live by the wonderful work in the two books I recommend to everyone!

Just awesome Lewis, thanks so much for sharing this interview with Dr. Guy Winch! This is one of my all time favorite episodes of The School of Greatness so far, and I've listened to almost every one of them!


I can relate to this in many ways, loosing my younger brother, just 22 years old, earlier this year in April. I could have just stayed at home and done nothing, but instead I realized that life is so damn precious even more than before, and I started to take more and more of the right action in order to achieve my biggest goals and dreams in life. Launching my blog, and soon my podcast, making my first money online, connecting with so many amazing people and I'm more excited than ever before in many ways. And all this happened on the WORST year ever of my entire life, and somehow I managed to turn this into growth. Next year it's time to crush it big time, and make it the best year of my life so far.


There's a lot of ups and downs to come, but at least I do have a very strong mindset to make shit happen, I've experienced the worst that can ever happen to someone...loosing a family member. I don't make excuses anymore, and I'm just going after the things I want, while trying to help and inspire as many people as possible along my journey. 


I'm super pumped for The School of Greatness Academy, so many amazing people in there already :)


Keep up the awesome work man!

Lewis, 


The analogies that he uses are great. My favorite... "Walking on broken bones".  Also, I really like how he said if someone's not ready to talk about it— just to leave it alone.  ('love it).


Thanks for this, much needed therapeutic sesh//.

This episode is riveting. As an acupuncturist, the interconnectedness of the emotional and the physical is everything. You cannot separate the mind from the body, you are one unit! I love Dr Winch's research on the connection b/t physical pain and rejection stemming from the same areas of the brain. This is proof why acupuncture is so therapeutic on all levels; come in to have your back pain treated, but leave pain free AND de-stressed. We cannot separate our psyche from our form. Loneliness affecting immunity, rumination affecting cardiovascular health ... Yes, yes, and yes! THIS is the future of medicine. THANK YOU for this episode. Pumps me up:) And also found it fascinating our culture now suffers from social media rejection. Really?! Wow.

Wow, I love the Cinderella metaphor that Guy talked about...it's sad but true. Guy is so right! This was the year that I learned EFT, how important forgiveness is, and it has helped me grow in leaps and bounds (and earn more money than I ever have). Thanks for the great video and podcast.

Really enjoyed listening to this - I especially found the part on 'Rumination' quite relevant. I tend to ruminate/worry/make mountains out of molehills sometimes, and it was intriguing to hear how this impacts our mental state, as well as the subsequent effects on our physical health! Also - the part about affirmations and self-esteem is incredible, how some affirmations can fall too far out of our self-esteem scope so our unconscious mind rejects it. His recommendation for dealing with that - I think it should be called a love letter, or as I call it - writing your 'Success CV' :)

I am so looking forward to this. Someone asked me the other day why in the world I would leave my Corporate job to do a calling. I responded because climbing the Corporate ladder has emotionally drained me! I am going to do what I love and heal. They looked at me with crossed eyes. So...perfect timing!

Don't see the download link on SoundCloud: http://screencast.com/t/rkW6CYATd Which was why I was asking. I can use iTunes as the workaround then. Great job getting this guy on. Seems like a leading researcher on the psychology topic.
