There are no mistakes, only life lessons


Life is a series of moments in which we are constantly making choices. Choices of varying degrees of significance. Some choices are simple with little consequence and others can be life altering. Some make us feel proud and internally grateful; others can make us feel sad, regretful, and vulnerable.

Keeping an open mind during vulnerable moments in life is not an easy task. It takes courage and discipline to throw away our crutches and habitual ways to face life without any blinders. I’ve been there…I know. It requires a willingness to move beyond ingrained ways of thinking. A willingness to transcend fear, accept the facts as they are, and stand on unfamiliar ground. All choices in life hold a lesson for us.  Making good or bad choices teach us important lessons about ourselves. We learn over time what works and what does not work for us. When things are not working, we have the ability to make new choices and take a new path. It’s never easy to admit you’ve made a mistake, but it’s a crucial step in learning, growing, and improving yourself. Here are 4 steps to help you press on to brighter days:

1. Take some time to experience the emotion the mistake brings.

2. Realize we are all human and mistakes happen. Accept responsibility and forgive yourself.

3. Find the lesson that’s hidden in your current situation. Ask yourself, what can you do differently next time a similar situation arises that led to the mistake?

4. Live and learn. Move forward with integrity and grace. Your past mistakes are meant to guide you, not define you.

ENOUGH! It’s Time to Be A Radical Demand for Yourself

Posted by Editor on


Have you ever had one of those “ENOUGH!” moments?

You look at your life or your relationship, and it’s not what you desire.

You realize you’ve put other’s needs above your own. You haven’t included yourself and your desires in your choices.

And you say, “ENOUGH!”

But then what?

What do you do to get out of the cycle of abuse that led to this ENOUGH moment so you can create the life and relationship you truly desire?

My friend and colleague, Nirmada Kaufman (known as The Radical Demand Diva) had one of these ENOUGH moments a couple years ago. She knew that more was possible in her life and especially in relationship. She made the demand for things to change.

And they did! Shortly after her ENOUGH moment she met a man and they created a radically different kind of relationship. They went on to write the book, “Love in the Next 10 Seconds,” that guides others on how to create the relationship they desire.

All of this got created because Nirmada said ENOUGH and then was willing to be a Radical Demand for herself.

When you become a Radical Demand for yourself, you commit to including YOURSELF in all your choices. You don’t make other people’s needs more important than your own. Yet you also don’t disregard other’s needs.

When you are a Radical Demand for yourself you make choices that are both inclusive and expansive for everyone.

What might you change and create in your own life when you become a Radical Demand for yourself?

And how do you become a Radical Demand?

Join special guest, Nirmada Kaufman, and myself for my upcoming radio show, “Beyond Abuse, Beyond Therapy, Beyond Anything,” on Tuesday, June 23rd @ 10am PST/1pm EST.

We’ll share pragmatic tools and steps you can take to get clear on what it is you want, and how to prioritize yourself in your life, so you create the life and relationship you desire. Live callers will have the chance to receive facilitation from both of us.

Isn’t it time you became a Radical Demand for youself?
