Let nothing eclipse your potential. 

"You can’t visualize the self with an electron microscope or image it with an MRI because it is not a material entity. You can’t weigh it. Yet it is undeniably real, it is indestructible and it is the source of pure potential and power. I promise you all this is true."

- Dr. Keith Ablow

Red Balls of Fire



Physical trainers talk a lot about the critical importance of “strengthening the core.” If you work at it, you’ll discover areas of muscle weakness you didn’t even know were there.  And as you strengthen them, you’ll feel the burn or the pain.It’s worth it.  A strong core is the source of power and balance in any activity.  Everyone knows that.


There is an equivalent psychological principle that I call the Pain2Power Principle.  There are parts of our lives that every one of us still needs to examine (whether recent or remote in time) in order to be psychologically powerful and able to manifest our greatest energies: creatively, intellectually, interpersonally and as leaders.

We instinctively avoid discovering, understanding and integrating these unexamined parts of our life stories because it isn’t always comfortable.  But the rewards, in terms of strength of mind, are at least as great as strengthening one’s core physically.  No one can perform optimally—in relationships, in business or in anything else—without doing the work.


Every one of us is a story.  Every paragraph, page and chapter of every one of our lives has importance, but, especially, those that have not been fully illuminated, understood and overcome because they weren’t perfect—and may have been very imperfect.  They may have been written in childhood, adolescence, adulthood, a decade ago, a year ago or just days ago.

Unexamined parts of our lives set in motion unconscious, self-defeating or self-limiting patterns of emotion and behavior.


Knowing and being in command of one’s life story—back to page 1—takes resolve and work, but it always leads to more power. Always. Because owning one’s SELF is essential to deploying one’s truest intentions, real talents and fullest potential.


Pain2Power Coaching doesn’t avoid digging for truth; it’s like a divining rod pointing to it. And once you have that truth in hand, you are unstoppable.

That’s why Pain2Power Coaching is mental fitness, leadership, business and relationship coaching, too.


Everything emanates from the core. Accountability, ingenuity, risk-assessment, determination, courage, conviction and the capacity to inspire others come from mastering one’s personality, mood states and potential anxieties. Achieve that mastery, and you will unleash your best instincts, ideas and motivations. You will no longer be hostage to the past, will be free to perform at an ultimate level in the present and can chart the boldest course to your future.


The journey is yours to take.
