BIO: Kenny Weiss is a Life Coach, YouTuber, Podcaster, and Author. His mission is to help people learn about their ‘worst day cycle’ so they can stop repeating events that hold them back and live up to their full potential.

STORY: Kenny has faced so much pain in his life. From childhood trauma to multiple addictions to an abusive marriage to bankruptcy and more. All this pushed him to contemplate suicide. While writing a suicide note to his kids, Kenny realized that all he needed to do was to let go and surrender to his pain to find healing.

LEARNING: To heal, you have to let go and accept your flaws and mistakes. Write down all your mistakes—this will give you clarity and start you on the path of self-forgiveness.

 

“The only way to reach your authenticity is by letting go.”

Guest profile

Kenny Weiss is a Life Coach, YouTuber, Podcaster, and Author of Your Journey to Success. He founded The Greatness Movement in 2018.

His mission is to help as many people as possible learn about their ‘worst day cycle’ so they can stop repeating events that hold them back and live up to their full potential.

Worst investment ever

About eight years ago, Kenny was suicidal. He had suffered a difficult childhood. His mother was an alcoholic, his father was distant, and his brother was abusive. Kenny also struggled with multiple addictions, went through two horrific divorces, a child custody battle, and bankruptcy.

In one of his marriages, his wife was physically and verbally abusive. All this was too much for him, and he just wanted to end it all.

Giving up control

Kenny had held it together for so long that he had convinced himself that he was in control of his pain. He never wanted to let go of that control. But when he decided to commit suicide, as he wrote a suicide note to his kids, he could not justify why he was choosing suicide.

Kenny realized that the one thing he had never done was to let go of control. At that moment, he realized that the best way to deal with his pain was to give up control. To simply let go of his pain. And that is what he did and was able to heal.

Lessons learned

Be brave and face your pain to heal from it

The one reason why most people hold back on dealing with their pain is that they think it will be this horrible thing that they will not survive. They do not realize that once you choose to face your pain, you start to grasp it and realize that it was not as bad as you feared it is.

Self-forgiveness starts with accepting your flaws and mistakes

For the self-forgiveness process to work, you must accept your flaws and mistakes. Once you accept them, you start letting go, and you start pushing yourself to your true self.

If you can make peace within yourself and forgive yourself, you open yourself up to love.

Andrew’s takeaways

Let go and see change happen

The most significant change in your life will happen when you let go, not when you hold on.

Write it all down to find healing

People still have behaviors, mannerisms, and reactions based upon things that happened at a young age. You can benefit from this by grabbing a piece of paper and writing down the top 3-5 worst things you’ve done.

Do not show them to anybody; just write them down. This will begin the process of healing and letting go. By the end of this exercise, you will realize that you can face the monster in your closet.

Actionable advice

Whatever it is you are going through, whatever the pain that you do not want to face, become an expert in it because that is the only way out.

No. 1 goal for the next 12 months

Kenny’s number one goal for the next 12 months is to have a deeper connection with his kids, and the more he heals, the more that connection will be possible.
