802: Holocaust Survivor & Author of "The Gift" {Interview with Dr. Edith Eger}

“Our painful experiences aren’t a liability—they’re a gift. They give us perspective and meaning, an opportunity to find our unique purpose and our strength.” ― Edith Eger

 

Dr. Edith Eger is a sought-after clinical psychologist and lecturer, helping individuals discard their limitations, discover their powers of self-renewal, and achieve things they previously thought unattainable. Using her own past as a Holocaust survivor and thriver as a powerful analogy, she inspires people to tap their full potential and shape their very best destinies. Her first book, The Choice, became a New York Times Bestseller, beloved by Oprah and thousands of readers, which details her experience as a Holocaust survivor and invites readers to join her in moving from recovery to discovery and beyond. In her recently released book, The Gift, she offers a hands-on, practical guide that encourages readers to change the thoughts and behaviors that may be keeping them imprisoned in the past.

  In this episode, Dr. Eger and I talk about:
  • How to find happiness within yourself
  • How to see painful experiences as opportunities
  • How to grow stronger through struggles
