Key Points from the Episode with Dr. Terri Levine:
- Terri Levin had a picture perfect life. Then one day, she got injured which triggered a condition called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, or RSD. It is known as the most painful disease on the planet.
- The pain wasn’t responding to the various and increasingly-powerful medications Terri tried, and ultimately she made a decision to end her life.
- While sitting in her bed, writing a goodbye note to her husband, she found that she just kept writing, and had in fact written a book filled with a sense of purpose, thankfulness and direction that helped her realize what she had to do, which included not only living, but dedicating herself to helping others with RSD.
- Terri found the value of heart in all you do, which became the basis for her work with her coaching, her subsequent books (she had already written several) and her popular podcast, Heartrepreneur Radio.
- Interestingly, Terri’s journey is the reverse of what many of us have. She was living a life aligned with purpose and passion, and when the RSD hit, she had flipped into a life of obligation and disconnection with what she wanted. In that moment when she started writing a farewell note to her husband that became a book, the idea that really came out in the book is one of abundance. Valuing all that you have.
- We are all just living our own experience, and need to respect that in each other. Ultimately, our actions only have to do with us, and the actions of others only have to do with them.
