Your unintentional life today is most likely a result of interpretations of stories and events from your past starting with your childhood.
How to heal from past events and transform regrets into fuel for growth
Our memories of the past are like the roots of a tree: As long as there are leaves to photosynthesize energy from the sunlight, the roots will keep growing in search for food for the leaves. Regrets are great if they lead to repentance and corrective actions, but if you are stuck repeating a negative story in your mind, your roots will only feed your future with toxicity. When you have a Purposehood Guiding Star, your memories will expand in search of positive lessons from your past.
When you recognize past events, you can identify the sources of your current nourishment and intentionally examine your memories of them. When you reflect on those memories, you can extract invaluable learnings, and you widen your views of the events themselves beyond your initial experience. By reframing those past events and extracting the lessons, you free yourself from the toxicity of negative interpretation.
The past is not fixed, it is memories written with interpretations. It is not written in ink, but scribbled with a pencil. It is not printed in a book, but drafted in a journal, so write and rewrite it to fit your future view.
Ammar sought fulfillment at a young age by exploring anthropology and world religions spending ten years with Sufi masters and religious scholars, studying, teaching, and subsequently serving as a cleric. Later he focused on entrepreneurship, where he pursued success by starting and seed-investing in over thirty businesses with thousands of employees, four of which are currently led by members of YPO, a global leadership community of chief executives. Ammar's startup spirit extended to volunteering in YPO, where he is a founding member of eleven chapters spanning four continents, positively impacting their communities. He also founded the YPO Change Makers Club where members and spouses share their expertise with the wider community.
Ammar holds an engineering degree from the University of Central Florida, and he is a Harvard Business School alumnus from "The President's Program in Leadership."
After a near-death experience followed by an eleven-year deep dive into the meaning of life, today Ammar is focused on working with Purposehood®️ therapists, life engineers, and business engineers, both volunteers and professionals to spark a movement to unleash the potentiality of every human toward their existential purpose in order to build a better future for all.
Ammar shares The Purposehood®️ Method in workshops, talks, and courses based on his book (Amazon #1 new release in Humanist Philosophy and Transpersonal Psychology): "Purposehood: Transform Your Life, Transform the World”.
