Did you grow up living with domestic violence or care about someone who did? This holiday season, consider giving the gift of a new beginning to someone who grew up living with domestic violence.
The book INVINCIBLE: The 10 Lies You Learn Growing Up with Domestic Violence and the Truths To Set You Free could be that gift. Written by CDV’s Founder, Brian F. Martin, and published by Penguin Random House in October, INVINCIBLE is now a Best Seller on Amazon and has been called “A GIFT” numerous times by diverse readers.
“INVINCIBLE is a gift for anyone who grew up living with domestic violence or anyone who cares about someone who did,” according to Dr. Renee McDonald, an internationally recognized researcher in the field of family violence.
INVINCIBLE is the first book of its kind to speak directly to those impacted or those who care about them. It is a simple guide that leads one along the path to help them understand what they experienced in childhood, how it changed them, and how they can reach the full potential they were meant to achieve in life.
Tony Robbins, best-selling author and peak-performance coach, who contributed the Foreword to INVINCIBLE, wrote, “Brian Martin answers the question: Can a childhood filled with violence and pain be transformed into one filled with strength, love, and freedom? The simple answer is: Yes, it can!” (from Foreword to INVINCIBLE)
The impact of CDV is immeasurable…but no one knows or talks about it.
According to UNICEF, growing up with domestic violence is “one of the most pervasive human rights issues of our time,” affecting more than 1 billion people – that’s 1 in 7. Yet, too few people are aware of the profound impact Childhood domestic violence (CDV) can have. There’s less than 10% awareness of it and even less understanding and sharing, which according to researchers, are key steps to change.
They are INVINCIBLE, but may not know it.
“There is no obstacle that I will face today that could compare to what I went through as a child and already conquered. I’m invincible.” –pg. 179, INVINCIBLE
If you grew up living with domestic violence, this may not be something you believe is true. CDV impacts a developing brain and the formation of the cognitive belief system, encoding a series of Lies – negative beliefs – that you grow up to believe about yourself. You may believe you’re guilty for what happened in that home, or a fearful, sad, worthless person, or an angry, resentful person who cannot be anything but, because something precious was taken from you. Or alone, hopeless, unattractive, and obviously unloved. When you grow up believing these Lies about yourself, you often act as such, which keeps you from realizing your potential and living the life that was meant for you.
According to a leading researcher, those who grow up living with domestic violence will never reach their full potential…UNLESS…they unlearn the LIES implanted in childhood and replace them with the transformative Truths that can put them on the path to happiness that was meant for them.
INVINCIBLE can be a catalyst for change in the life of someone you care about.
INVINCIBLE exposes the 10 key LIES, reveals the 10 corresponding TRUTHS, and gives you a compelling roadmap to overcome your childhood trauma and realize your potential. Through powerful first-person stories, including the author’s own experiences, as well as insightful commentary based on the most recent social science and psychology research, it not only offers a deeper understanding of the concerns and challenges but also provides proven strategies anyone can use to reclaim their lives and futures.
Give the gift that can lead them to the Truth and help them reaching their potential!
If you know and love someone who grew up living with domestic violence, consider giving them a copy of INVINCIBLE this holiday. It can help change their lives, as they unlearn the Lies, embrace the Truths, and discover the path to fulfillment. If you grew up living with domestic violence, give this gift to yourself.
