Father, today we pray for those facing desperate and lonely times. We pray especially for poor and defenseless children everywhere. Help us meet their needs as we are able.

Soon after starting his practice in in 2010, Mastin Kipp, creator of Functional Life Coaching, noticed a pattern of behavior in his clients. “they would set goals- try a meal plan, quit their job- but not follow through,” he says. After years of asking why, I realized that everyone’s been through something that have them “proof” that they shouldn’t or couldn’t move forward. “Turning to neuroscience, Kipp came up with a clear answer : “Not achieving goals wasn’t just due to a self-limiting belief – it was due to trauma.”

Meaning that trauma isn’t just a matter of clinging to bad experiences but being impaired by them- sometimes permanently. “This isn’t solely about what happened to you,” says Kipp. “It’s about what happened inside you because of what you’ve been through.”
