Join host Dr. Meghan Walker on this week’s episode of IMPACT as she sits down with Dr. Neeta Bhushan, a world-renowned speaker on grit and resilience, co-founder of the Dharma Coaching Institute and co-founder of Global Grit Institute, a mental-health  training platform for leaders. Together, they explore the importance of facing our negative emotions head-on, instead of hiding them away as we strive for success. 


As high-achievers, we often want to hide our emotions and push them away as we strive for the next level of success. However, this is an unhealthy way to deal with negative emotions, and it can ultimately take a toll on our psyche, well-being, and even our sense of self-respect and self-worth. 


In this powerful and inspiring conversation, Dr. Bhushan provides valuable strategies for dealing with negative emotions and overcoming challenges. She explains that it’s important to feel the emotions, identify the limiting beliefs and then reframe the stories in our heads to learn from our mistakes, setbacks, and failures. By facing our negative emotions head-on, we can turn them into opportunities for growth and cultivate the mindset of a resilient person.


Dr. Bhushan also shares her personal journey and the insights she gained from her own experiences, including the lessons she learned from writing her latest book, “That Sucked, Now What?”. 


Tune in to IMPACT and discover the secrets to turning challenges into opportunities for growth and resilience.

“It’s so much easier in our culture to shove it under a rug, put it in the back seat, fake it till we make it. But what about just feeling it to heal it.”

Dr. Neeta Bhushan


“The capacity to take that pain and not suppress it or move it deep into the holding tanks of your emotional toes, but to actually face them head on.”

Dr. Neeta Bhushan


“Many times we tend to overwork ourselves and distract ourselves because we’re running away from things that are so deeply wounded in our own personal life. And that was my bandaid.”

Dr. Neeta Bhushan


“I wasn’t even 30 yet and had all of these trappings of success, but internally, I was spiritually dead.”

Dr. Neeta Bhushan


“We’re so afraid of diving into the depths of that pain to really uncover and sit with the beauty and the magic of what comes up as a result of it that can truly change our life.”

Dr. Neeta Bhushan
