How to Find Your Voice, Heal Your Past, and Change Your Life

With IN-Q

“Learned fear can be overcome 

When you realize the voice inside your head 

Is not yours

It’s an imitation of the voices from before

Repeating on a loop inside your quiet core

And you can’t tell the difference

Cause it sounds the same

But trust me when I tell you

Most of what you think

Is from somebody else’s brain”


On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk with my good friend, IN-Q about his journey of becoming a poet, songwriter, and rapper. IN-Q shares about his book, Inquire Within, which is a poetic journey through his life and experiences, contemplating universal issues of love, loss, forgiveness, transformation, and belief. We discuss how our greatest pain can be our greatest teacher, how to turn failure into power, and how to break through the stories that we create for ourselves. We also talk about the importance of building community, especially in pursuit of our goals and dreams.
