Welcome to June, my friends! This month, I have chosen to explore the virtue of resilience. Resilience is intricately woven into the fabric of nature, as evidenced by the mighty oak tree withstanding fierce winds and the delicate flower blooming against all odds.

How Do I Help My Client Let Go?

By Leslie Vernick | May 31, 2023 |

Help I Have Nowhere To Go, No One Helps.

By Leslie Vernick | June 29, 2022 |

Morning friend, Last week we talked about letting go of unrealistic hope. Letting go of that hope isn’t meant to leave you feeling bereft of options, but it’s to open your eyes to the options that are available to you. To help you stop knocking your head against doors you have no power to open. I believe this whole topic…
