How Sharing Your Most Vulnerable Stories Can Heal You [Video]

by Olla Abbas October 4, 2018

What happens when you’re able to share your most vulnerable stories – even if only with yourself?

In this video, Olla Abbas, Events Director at Mindvalley shares a personal story that demonstrates the transformational power of authenticity.

About The Video


If our stories are the Lego bricks of our lives, some of those pieces are easier to put together than others.

But the more complicated pieces can’t be ignored either since we would not be complete without them. They’re the stories that are difficult to talk about, sometimes, even difficult to think about.

Olla Abbas kicked off Mindvalley Reunion with a powerfully authentic story that shows us how our most difficult stories can help us ultimately heal. If you want a boost of courage to face those difficult stories in your own past, watch this deeply moving personal talk.

It is truly an inspiration, and an invitation, to be honestly and purely vulnerable.


Most people think that learning is the key to self-development

It’s how we were raised – when we were young, we studied algebra, read history, and memorized the names of elements on the periodic table.

But once you grow up and experience life, you realize that you can’t ‘learn certain things – like personal growth.

Vishen Lakhiani, founder of Mindvalley and New York Times Bestselling author, discovered that the key to self-development was not to ‘learn’, but rather, to ‘transform’.
