Just Be Your S.E.L.F.

I originally met Carol a few years ago at a networking event, and we soon found out we had much in common! We knew a lot of the same people, followed a lot of the same causes, and we both loved helping others.

Carol’s new book, “Just Be Your S.E.L.F.” is a testament to her life mission of helping us all grow into the self-fulfilled, ultimate “ME” we can each be!

Do you have a S.E.L.F.?

If you’re not yet Self-governed, Ego-aware, Leading in your life, and Free of self-imposed barriers, then it’s past time! The developmental journey of your earliest years offered you the chance at seven gifts—emotional and social capacities essential for healthy adult relationships. Yet, many of us leave those valuable gifts behind. If your friendships, romances, and family ties are full of drama, pain, or distance, it may be time for some “developmental do-overs.”

As you retrace those first seven years now, you will find that the raw ores of these 7 Childhood Treasures—and your S.E.L.F.—still lie waiting for you to uncover them.

  • Learn how to trust, who to trust, and for what
  • Separate loved ones’ words and actions from your painful story about them
  • Let go of drama that is not about you
  • Be a leader of your own life, with the ultimate freedom of embracing your choice, power, and responsibility for who you are

Even if you had pretty-good parents, who weren’t alcoholics or drug addicts, didn’t beat or berate you, and supported you in many ways, you may still struggle in relationships as an adult. The first seven years of childhood are full of potholes and pitfalls for new, young parents who are, usually, stumbling through those years, nearly-blind. Small wonder that even well-intentioned and loving parents create accidental damage in the most high-impact relationships they will ever have – with their young children.

Whether your parents traumatized or supported you, you may find that today’s relationships with them, or with your adult children, siblings, partner, friends, and coworkers are strained by silence, fighting, fear, or similar stresses. When you’re ready to release these struggles, it’s time to embrace the untapped potential in these connections with friends and loved ones. Retrace the original developmental plan for your early years and start living today as your Self-governed, Ego-Aware, Leading, Free S.E.L.F.!
