Real Men Feel: Lessons Learned from Near-Death Experiences [Podcast]

Real Men Feel: Lessons Learned from Near-Death Experiences [Podcast]

Author, coach, and resiliency expert, Erez Avramov, talks about the life lessons he’s learned from three near-death experiences.

Listen to Real Men Feel, #214, “Lessons Learned from Near-Death Experiences” here:

Erez speaks to the importance of goals, seeing the gifts in our challenges, and the gap between the medical system and what men really need.

“Resiliency is how we address change and adversity in a way that doesn’t take us down and completely push us into the dark night of the soul.” ~ Erez Avramov

We all go through challenging times and face adversity. Sometimes like in 2020, we go through shared adversity – the same challenge of Covid is hitting the entire planet. Times like these require a tremendous level of adaptability and resiliency from all of us. Erez is a resiliency expert who’s nicknamed “The Man Who Refuses to Die.”

Erez has faced three near-death experiences as well as divorce and a lower leg amputation. Yet, he still focuses on the positive and the possibilities that each challenge offers. He shares his experiences as we talk about the desire men have for control, which is often an illusion.

Rapid change can happen to us all. It isn’t only from near-death experiences. Massive life changes can be triggered by such things as divorce, financial crisis, death of a loved one, end of a relationship, COVID-19, and many other events. There are always amazing lessons in life events like these. Letting go of one thing can allow us to receive so much more.
