Lawyer Darrin Goes From Yelling Around The House To Happiness

Play episode

Wow, how do I start talking about how Super High Performance has changed me and changed my life?

I had been working with Simon for a while before Super High Performance, but I feel like Super High Performance just really kicked it into gear for me. I was still in an angry place and felt ill-equipped in many ways to deal with life’s ups and downs. 

It’s really interesting that today is the day that I’m shooting this video because I’m a lawyer but I had a lawsuit, where I was the plaintiff against somebody who I felt like, really did me wrong. 

We had a court hearing today on a motion to dismiss and the other side basically cleaned our clocks – it was unexpected and I’m not really that happy about it, but in the past, I would have literally been yelling around my house in the presence of my family, potentially for an hour, maybe hours.

I would have just been ranting and raving and been ill-equipped to deal with this sort of setback. Today, within just a few minutes of its occurrence I was kind of like, well, you know, these things happen and it’s not the end of the world, it’s not the end of life, it’s really not the end of much of anything – just these things happen sometimes. Sometimes things don’t go the way that you’d like them to go. 

My experience in Super High Performance was really interesting because it started out really hard for me, and that turned out to be really good. 

I went from, with regard to the program itself, from being fairly resentful, and kind of thought it was silly, to actually fully and finally realizing how much I’ve changed.

To give you an example, yesterday I was out of sorts; I hadn’t slept well the night before and normally I probably would have just powered through that with unknown sort of results.

Yesterday I just went in, I used the tools of meditation, and just meditated, and then I got back up and I felt better. It didn’t ruin the whole day. Yesterday still wasn’t a great day, but it was a lot better day than it would have been with me in the past. 

I’ve come a long way. I feel like I’ve learned a lot of valuable lessons about myself and tools to deal with stress, anxiety, depression, and just when things don’t go my way. 

I feel really happy about it and I feel really grateful. Thank you, Simon. Thanks for holding the boundaries with me, thanks for calling me out on my stuff – I couldn’t recommend Super High Performance enough.
