“Your biggest problem is you think you shouldn’t have them.”(Tony Robbins)


We grow up in this world thinking that bad things are a negative thing. That they are something to run from and avoid at all cost. We focus on trying to have happy lives. And that, to us, means having a life of comfort and success that comes quickly and without frustration.

We’ve been taught that if you face frustration or results are slow to come, you obviously are doing something wrong.

What if all that was a lie?

What if the best things in life are worth working for?

What if working means, not just putting in the time, but pushing through difficult circumstances and through immense odds?

While most people run from hard things, what if the secret is to run toward them?


How would life change for you if instead of striving for a life of perfection, you embraced a life where happiness didn’t equal a life without problems, but happiness in spite of problems…. Or because of problems.

I know this sounds incredibly counterintuitive.

That’s why I think we are blind-sided when problems come our way and don’t know how to cope with them. Because we think to be happy we have to be free of hardship.

Twentieth century priest, professor, writer and theologian, Henri Nouwen once said, “The paradox of expectation is that those who believe in tomorrow can better live today; those who expect joy to come out of sadness can discover the beginnings of a new life amid the old.” He’s talking about hope.

Hope comes when we realize there is value in facing difficulty.

Have you gotten stuck in a rut of feeling overwhelmed by life’s circumstances? Do you yearn for feeling joy more often than despair? If so, you’re on the cusp of changing your life! And I’d love to help you! With my signature program called The Embracing Hard Solution.

Embracing Hard

I work with clients to help them move forward – changing their mindset and therefore, changing their entire outlook on life. Contact me now to take advantage of this 3 or 6 month experience where you’ll get direct personal support through weekly calls, session summaries, and email/text support as necessary.

During these sessions we will:

  • Identify where you are now, and where you want to go
  • Work through seven limiting lies we tend to believe and identify what is holding you back
  • Answer the two questions I believe are the most beneficial in moving forward in difficulty
  • Learn the value of embracing your story

When we’re done, you’ll feel connected, energized, and confident. Imagine all the stuff you buy to numb your feelings of boredom, anxiety, or hurt. Now imagine investing instead in getting to the root of the feelings instead of spending money on fancy band-aids. And living with the purpose and peace you’re hungry for.

Investment: $500 monthly for 3 or 6 months

If you’re tired of being let down by others and feeling stuck in negative circumstances, the Embracing Hard Solution will help you break the mindsets and behavior patterns that have kept you there and help propel you forward in a way you never thought imaginable.

Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting the same results. Maybe it’s time for you to do something different. Apply for this program here.
