“It’s Time to Heal Not Hate”

“It’s Time to Heal Not Hate”

A FIRE UP FRIDAY—As an avid subscriber to several podcasts, I found Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof Radio interview of Wesley Chapman, estranged son of Dog The Bounty Hunter (five wives, several children), to be the most powerful this week. Here’s what I heard at the start, spoken with evenness, honesty and humility.

“I had a childhood that was unlike several people, and also like millions that are out there. That childhood started with being abandoned by my biological father when I was one, and my biological mother when I was six-and-a-half. Between the ages of one and 17, I was abused in every way you can think of – physical abuse, mental abuse and sexual abuse.”

Chapman was so tortured that he tried committing suicide at four-and-a-half years old. He was labeled and medicated for medical illness – manic, PTSD, schizophrenia from his first suicide attempt until he was 16. He tried killing himself 12 times. Yet he was always hustling, even during the toughest of times, finding ways to sell something or make money. The more money he made, “the less people asked about mom and dad.” When they talked business, he didn’t have to think about himself up until his liver failed at 16. The doctor gave him the odds at surviving. “Everything you told me to this date has been lie,” he said. “In order to die, you have to have lived. I’ve never lived. I can’t die. My only option is to live.”

Chapman stopped all medications, which was 20-25 pills a day. He went cold turkey, and as a computer geek, he started his research. He learned about power or water, colon therapy, purification, green drinks. He started changing all aspects of his self-treatment in his life. His liver started cleansing itself.

Chapman went back in for testing two years later as ward of the state, as kid labeled disabled. As they were about to send me out on my own – everything came back opposite. “I had been was burden to society and labeled as stupid, then all the results said the opposite. I had a genius level IQ, my brain had a high level of chemical reactions in brain. I could talk to my body, talk to my organs and self and started processing.”

He started living his life at age 16. Within a few years, Chapman built a successful worldwide consulting business helping large corporations improve their brand. He’s had his hand in building over 5,000 brands.”

“I started finding that the success I was finding in the entrepreneurial world was not fulfilling,” Chapman said. “It was not filling my tank. About 3-4 years ago, I went on to on a crusade to find what makes us truly happy.”

After a 18-minute key-note at a public school in front of a couple of hundred youth, Chapman stayed and spent 4-5 hours hearing the story of their lives – the turmoil, their stories, hearing where they were– and within days he heard back from those students. They said, “You changed my life forever. Here’s what I’ve been doing now. Here’s what I’ve implemented in my life and I’ve never been happier.”

Two years after starting “A HUMAN PROJECT,” Chapman’s program is now in seven different countries. Just this week, he went to a school in Amish country. He was up at 6 am having early conversations with at-risk youth, then he did group presentations, and he spent one-on-one time with student after student until about 10 pm. Chapman gave them tools to empower then handed them off to local professionals and hand them off to people who can help.

His goal: “My calling and what I want to do with my life is to empower youth to have the choices and the education that I didn’t have and to give them the ability to take control of their lives regardless of their circumstances. It is to teach them to give themselves a future that they literally thought was limited and impossible, and open their minds up to the limitless of what human beings are.”
