When I was four years old, my mother who was a drug addict and alcoholic, cut off my right index finger. Hurt people, hurt people. 83% of people in the United States, according to the ACE Survey has had an Adverse Childhood Experience. That means that somebody in this room suffered childhood trauma and abuse. And the truth about it is that the higher that you rank in the ACE survey, this series of 10 questions, the more likely you are to have long- detrimental health ramifications, you could be up to 5200% more likely to commit suicide. 2200% more likely to be an alcoholic and 2000% more likely to use tobacco, not to mention the economic impact of over $800,000 per person on average lost in per capita income in this country. The truth about childhood trauma and abuse is that we all have the ability to be the hero of our own story.
I'm Michael Unbroken, I'm an author, speaker, coach, and advocate for adult survivors of childhood. And when I was 25 years old, I hit rock bottom. I was 350 pounds, smoking two packs of cigarettes a day, drinking myself to sleep, my three childhood best friends had been murdered and I put a gun in my mouth. Today I've worked with thousands of people around the world. I have over 30 trauma informed certifications. I've been a guest expert on over 300 podcasts and I help people learn to love themselves, get unstuck and become the hero of their own story. And with the opportunity, we can do the most important thing in the world and pull out the rug of the hidden truth that child abuse impacts all of us. Our past does not have to impact our future. And the three things that I could speak about with the opportunity with you all is this ONE, mindset is everything, but nobody tells you what mindset means. Everybody's like mindset, mindset, mindset. Let me tell you what it is. Mindset is what you think becomes what you speak, what you speak, become your actions and your actions become your reality.
And if we can teach people the most important thing about mindset, I am the kind of person who is kind to myself. We can create change in the world. Secondly, we have to understand that trauma and abuse, isn't the impact, the pain, the suffering, it's the theft of identity. And so what we do is give people the tools to create themselves through setting goals, boundaries, and most importantly, understanding their moral character and values.
And finally tell the truth. One of the things that we have to do is understand that we are not in this alone. I estimate in my professional opinion that a hundred percent of people have had an Adverse Childhood Experience. But when we come together, we communicate it. We talk about this. We bring it to light.
We give people the ability to become the hero of their own story and together, and with your help, the thing that we can do is help the world to THINK UNBROKEN.
