Manny Wolfe Power of CommunicationOvercoming a Belief

Manny was born in a cult in San Francisco during the height of the Hippie movement. He shares the challenges he had for being born in such a strong ideology.

One of the things that it creates in people is the belief that outside the group they can’t survive.” -Manny Wolfe

It is powerful when someone becomes a cult as an adult, but more powerful when one is born into it. Manny is very much happy that he overcame it after many years.

Seizing the Power of Communication

For many years, Manny did not know how to connect with others. He always felt disconnected from the world outside of the belief. This shaped his 28 years, where he later got into drugs and other forms of listlessness.

It does not do justice to the pain that comes with that feeling of just always feeling like an outsider.” -Manny Wolfe

It was not until he found himself planning to kill someone that his life changed for the good. That led him to asking deep questions. From this, he realized the power of communication.
