[Episode 109] How one YouTube video changed psychotherapist Elliott Connie’s life

Elliott Connie. Wow, just wow!

Check out these Elliottisms: 

🙌 “If you can figure out a way to give your pain purpose, it is no longer pain. Once you give pain purpose, it instantaneously turns into passion.” 

🙌 “The greatest thing to affect change is hope.” 

🙌 “Don’t have a conservation with me about how I got lost, have a conservation with me about the process of getting found.” 

🙌 “You really can’t be driven by external factors; like I’m doing this to get views, I’m doing this to get money, I’m doing this get to noticed. You have to be doing it because it’s important to you to put it out into the world.”
