From health problems to challenging interpersonal relationships, we all experience crises of varying degrees throughout our lives. While a common pitfall is to adopt a “victim” mentality, a more empowering approach is to search for the lessons amidst these crises and use them to ignite our growth and evolution. 

From the time she was a young child, Lynn Balter has navigated an array of personal crises, including family trauma, sexual assault, breast cancer, addiction, divorce, and more. However, she developed the mindset that these challenges were perfectly intended for her growth – a growth that would continue to align her personality to her soul, or what she calls her “true self.” After earning her business administration degree from Western Michigan University, Lynn moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, where she began her career as a property manager and real estate broker before becoming a highly successful entrepreneur in the vacation rental industry. Following her son’s autism diagnosis, Lynn has helped raise millions of dollars for Autism Speaks and the Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center. She is also the author of the book, “Walking Through Pain to Purpose.” In Episode 192 of The MINDset Game® podcast, Lynn shares more of her inspiring story, as well as the following insights: 

  • Why it’s important to examine the patterns, beliefs, and behaviors that have repeatedly surfaced throughout your life – particularly in response to difficult circumstances – and strive to shift those that may no longer be serving you 
  • The power of going inward when faced with challenges and trying to identify the lessons they may be trying to teach you, as well as the parts of yourself that may need healing
  • How using the lessons you’ve learned from your challenges as a way to help others who may be facing similar situations can help fuel further transformation and joy in your life
