In this episode, I am joined by visionary, healer & teacher, Heather Hans (Season 1, Episode 11) for a discussion about letting go of the past and opening ourselves up to change.
We cover various aspects of our past (our “stories”) about ourselves, ranging from alcoholism to sexual abuse, and weight issues to “who I am”. How our stories first become real, then get rooted, and finally begin to dictate our lives.
We invite you to join in on the conversation by posting your comments below or on Facebook or Twitter.
You can also learn more about Heather and comment on her sites as well, at www.HeatherHans.com.
We all make mistakes. Many of us own up to them. Some of us profit from them. And a few of us are even able to correct them. The key question here, is “What makes the difference?”
“A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes,
smart enough to profit from them, and
strong enough to correct them.”
~ John C. Maxwell
It’s a given that you simply cannot make it through life without making mistakes. It would probably even be accurate to say that we can’t make it through a day without making mistakes. It happens. Not just for you or for me, but for all of us.
If you want to maximize the benefit from your mistakes (don’t we all?), here’s a good place to get started.
STEP 1: Spot it.
You’ve got to FIRST recognize that a mistake was made. You can’t own a mistake you didn’t know existed.
This is where you just have to trust your peers and tune into reality. With a little practice, you’ll be able to spot your mistakes within seconds. With a LOT of practice, you may even get to the point where you can stop that mistake just before you make it. A very Jedi move indeed.
But for now, let’s just recognize our mistake.
