Key Takeaways:

  • Starting from a place of strength (that we don't need to be fixed) creates a broadening effect in our minds. We're able to see more opportunities, problem-solve obstacles more efficiently, be gentler with ourselves, and stay more motivated to stick with our inspired goals. 
  • Negative emotions are not bad, but when we hang on to them too long, they create constriction in our mind and body. We're not as able to tap into our creativity, inspiration, motivation, and more when negative emotions close us up.
  • We are more than our pathology and/or labels. 
  • Discover your Resilience Type with our free Resilience Quiz to help streamline your activities and come back to balance. This is a powerful tool that helps you create positive changes from a place of strength.
