Suffering is The Door to Personal Growth

Of course, we all want to live in bliss, but pain and suffering is what makes us human. It’s suffering that is the great equalizer in life, yet it’s a necessary access point to reach the next stage of our human evolution.

In today’s Inside Look, Bedros Keuilian takes a deep dive with the one and only, Akshay Nanavati, author of Fearvana. His purpose is to help people find, live, and fall in love with their worthy struggle. Whether it’s running a marathon, building a business, writing a book, raising a child, or playing chess, you must give all of yourself. Don’t miss this amazing conversation.


“Coming out of the Marines is when I started to look for other ways to suffer. Other ways to explore how far we can test the human spirit. So, outdoor sports became my playground.”
