Childhood trauma is something we hear a lot about. Usually in terms of it being an excuse for bad behavior. Such as, “He cheated because he had a terrible childhood.” Today’s guest is Michael Anthony “Unbroken,” a powerful coach who not only experienced many unthinkable traumas; fell into a litany of trauma-induced behaviors such as cheating on his partner, drugs, alcohol, food, and more; but he also took a hard look at himself, got brutally honest, and completely transformed his life.
- How radical honesty and vulnerability about what’s really going on within and around you (which means getting out of victim mode and choosing to heal) powerfully transforms your life and ends generational trauma once and for all.
- Solutions versus excuses and how to craft yourself anew so that by the end of your life you can be without regret.
- The difference between taking care of yourselfand taking it easy, and why most people are too easy on themselves and never make the changes they desire.
- The power of coaching and having someone to push you to break free from excuses, own your desires, and take full responsibility for both the good and the bad in your life.
Michael was born to a hyper-abusive drug addict mother who cut his finger off at 4 years old, a step-father you pray you never have, and a racist grandmother that pushed him into an identity crisis. By the time he was 9, his family was in poverty and often homeless all while being a member of the Mormon Church. At twelve, he was adopted by his grandmother and quickly turned to drugs and alcohol to survive the continuing abuse. Despite multiple learning disabilities and not graduating high school on time, Michael found success in Corporate America in his early twenties. However, success only made things worse. Michael found himself morbidly obese, high and drunk daily, and ultimately self-sabotaging everything around him. It was not until finding his inner power through his Mirror Moment and choosing to do whatever it took to work through childhood trauma that his life really began.
Michael Anthony is the author of the best-selling book Think Unbroken and is a coach, mentor, and educator for adult survivors of child abuse. Michaels spends his time helping other survivors get out of “The Vortex” to become the hero of their own story and take their life back. Michael hosts the Think Unbroken podcast, teaches at Think Unbroken Academy and is on a mission to create change in the world.
