TWF 24: John Demartini on Turning Setbacks in to Comebacks

“What they told me I was not destined to do became the very thing I was blessed to do.” Dr John Demartini has had more “setbacks” than most. Which is why he’s supremely qualified to discuss how we can all turn out setbacks into comebacks. 

This episode is the first of two parts. Today we discuss how to turn past events – particularly the hardest ones – into blessings and gifts. 

Dr Demartini is considered one of the world’s leading authorities on human behavior and personal development. He is the founder of the Demartini Institute, a private research and education organization with a curriculum of over 72 courses covering multiple aspects of human development.

Dr Demartini – 

  • Left school at 14
  • Nearly died aged 17 (strychnine poisoning)
  • Met Paul Bragg at that time which changed the direction of his life
  • Overcome learning difficulties including dyslexia
  • Travels over 360 days per year to over 50 countries, where he shared his research and findings into living the lives we were born to live. 
  • Is the author of over 40 books, 50 audio CDs and DVDs
  • Was a featured expert in The Secret, Oh My God and Overfed and Undernourished just to name a few. 
  • Presents The Breakthrough Experience almost every weekend of the year where he teaches and helps people reduce stress, resolve conflict and allow people to open their heart and mind to a new perspective and paradigm for life. 

If you’ve never experienced Dr Demartini before I highly recommend you attend The Breakthrough Experience – which he presents online at the moment. The next Australian edition is coming up in May.
