“I think definitely for me, and I think this is true for most if not all people, the first step is definitely that self-love. Because when I tried to fix the problem without having the self-love then that lead to just beating myself up. That lead to a lot of critical analysis of self, self-loathing, self-sabotage, all of those things, because I just wasn’t in a place to come to those solutions from a balanced perspective. And to see the problem from a balanced perspective. And so the first step was definitely that self-love. It was essentially about having the same empathy for myself that I have for others. And that sounds so ridiculous like of course, you would have that, but I didn’t and I think many people don’t. It’s always easier to see someone else’s life and to see their challenges and to see what they’ve overcome and why they’re in the situation they’re in and all of those extenuating factors that lead them to end up where they are. Bit it’s often harder to see that for yourself and we often judge ourselves much more harshly.” Dr Brett Hill
A heartfelt and open conversation about love, life and hitting rock bottom. Dr Brett Hill is a dear friend and someone who went from living a relatively ‘normal’ happy life for his first thirty-five years to all of a sudden faced with being alone, vulnerable, scared and pissed off. A remarkable journey with many ups and downs, clawing his way from the depths of self-sabotage to finally finding his true self and realising he had the resilience, power, tenacity, curiosity and determination to come out the other side a way better human.
Brett talks openly about his desire to take a fairly manly approach and just ‘fix’ his problems but soon realised this big cross-road in his life was not just a quick-fix and he would have to travel some deep and dark roads to truly heal. He also talks about how he feels the legal system is flawed for men.
Brett shares the science behind what the brain does when challenged. And he shares what is needed by those witnessing someone at rock bottom. He gives some go-to strategies on what to do to crawl out of your rock bottom and most importantly how to truly love yourself through the process. And he talks about the importance of being curious, having fun and to believe in miracles!
Dr Brett Hill is the host of some of Australia’s top-rated health podcasts, resilience mentor, functional nutrition coach, chiropractor, public speaker, and author of numerous books and e-books. He regularly appears on TV, radio and in print, and his media appearances, seminars, coaching and consulting have inspired thousands of people over the last decade to live a long, happy, healthy life full of energy and vitality.
A divorced and now remarried father of three with a string of entrepreneurial pursuits and life challenges along the way, Brett brings a unique perspective to health and mindset challenges with his communication skills and emotional vulnerability. He has been able to combine his decades of research into building human health and resilience (including study of Health Science, Nutrition and Counselling) with his own personal journey and lessons to help others rediscover their own innate resilience in a profound way.
Dr Brett has been able to share his journey with his three gorgeous children Tom, Charlotte, and Tim who have inspired Dr Brett to take his message to the world in order to create a healthier environment for his family to thrive in.
