Every single one of us has past baggage and trauma. What separates us is the ability to internalize, learn from, and move past what may have previously hindered us. Embracing the past (and the lessons learned) is the only way to move forward productively and effectively.
My guest today, is Dr. John Delony. He is a bestselling author and has two PhD’s with over two decades of experience in counseling and crisis response. Today, we talk about dealing with past trauma in all its forms, working with incentive structures that produce positive results, overcoming stress, addiction, and loneliness, fighting against the east of modernity, and how to own your past.

Again, my guest today is Dr. John Delony. He is the host of the Dr. John Delony Show which is part of the Ramsey Solutions Network. He is also a PhD and has decades of experience in individual counseling, crisis management, and higher education.
He is also the author of Redefining Anxiety and his latest book, Own the Past, Change Your Future. I was recently a guest on his show and I’m glad to bring you part 2 of our discussion together…
