Why I do what I do; A personal note…
As I’ve had the opportunity to travel the world and talk to people of all ages and backgrounds about what they believe is possible, one thing is certain: When we empower ONE person, many, many lives are changed.
When I published my book, The Other Side of Bipolar, I saw how some people perceived my work as an invitation to a greater possibility and how others got angry and afraid – as if it was irresponsible to talk about wellness in light of such stigmatized diagnoses.
Had it not been for the tools that I share in my business, I don’t know that I would have continued on to teach tens of thousands of people tools to create their life utilizing these powerful mental wellness tools.
This experience has taught me how mental wellness is at the core root of all of our life creation.
This doesn’t mean having a diagnosis, or other challenges. It DOES point to the fact that everyone has situations, beliefs and patterns that emerge over time that either propels us forward or demands that we pivot and create a change. Our success in life is dependent on how we act at those choice points.
Being the one always blazing the trail can get lonely – isolating, even. Being in community with others who are seeking greater and more ease is something that will not only change your life, but it’s how we change the collective.
It’s how we bring about the possibilities that light us up and give us a peaceful, fulfillment in our life path.
