How to Achieve Happiness with Coaching and Therapy with Dr. Mahsa Hojat-Khoshniyat [Limitless MD, Episode 129]

LMD, Vikram Raya, Podcast Doctor, Real Estate, Investing, Millionaire

Driven and successful people achieve a lot in life. But sometimes, they don’t experience fulfillment or happiness. For example, they may feel the need to take care of everybody else while, at the same time, neglecting their own needs. 


Physicians, especially, take care of everyone but don’t build self-care strategies into their days. In extreme cases, they lose interest in their passions while pursuing financial peace. 


This is not sustainable. And today’s guest, Dr. Mahsa Hojat-Khoshniyat, explains that going beyond basic needs and living a balanced life is crucial to experience fulfillment. 


Dr. Mahsa Hojat-Khoshniyat completed a Bachelor’s in Psychology, a Master’s in Social Work, and a Ph.D. in Clinical Social Work at UCLA. She focuses on providing critical insights into a person’s psyche, from understanding the inner child to deconstructing limiting beliefs. 


These are some of the topics we cover during the episode:   

  • Understanding the trauma that successful people carry inside of them
  • Would your family be happy if you weren’t around?
  • How to identify if you’re experiencing a lack of fulfillment
  • Strategies for helping yourself in situations of despair
  • Difference between coaching and therapy


Creating breakthroughs and epiphanies will help you live your best life. Don’t pull away from your authenticity. Remove the masks and connect with the child you once were to be happy.
  

 

“Imagine you are on your deathbed right now, and you are looking back at your life. Do you have any regrets? Is there anything you wish you would have done differently? Are you happy with the quality of the life you lived?” – Dr. Mahsa Hojat-Khoshniyat
