$200 Million to Overcoming Anxiety and Back
I've got an incredibly raw, real, and vulnerable conversation to share with you today.
I sat down with my friend Darius Mirshahzadeh for a fascinating deep dive into his journey of reinvention and finding purpose after building and exiting a massively successful business.
As founders and achievers, we put so much pressure on ourselves to constantly push forward and accomplish more. But what happens when you've seemingly “achieved it all” on the outside, while feeling empty and lost on the inside? That was Darius' experience, and I know a lot of you can relate.
In this episode, Darius courageously opens up about his mental health struggles, family dynamics, and the rock bottom moments that ultimately led him to reinvent himself and realign with his true purpose. I was moved by his authenticity and think you will be too.
Darius has so much wisdom around surrendering control, letting go of goals, and instead focusing on who you want to BECOME each day. His journey shows it's never too late to reinvent yourself, even when you've reached immense external success.
I won't give away all the details, but this conversation explores:
- The dangers of tying your identity solely to achievement and business success
- Why “positive thinking” and faking gratitude don't work long-term
- Getting real about your mental health, even when it feels “shameful”
- Letting go, surrendering control, and embracing the unknown
- Shifting from ego-driven goals to aligning with your higher purpose
- And so much more!
If you're on your own journey of reinvention, at a crossroads in life, or just need some inspiration and hard-won wisdom, this episode is for you.
