We are human. We all make blunders from time to time. Whether you are Jack the Ripper or the Dali Lama, there will be times when things don’t go our way. It’s inevitable.
The difference is HOW WE HANDLE IT.
Jack the Ripper could very well take it out on slaying more innocent victims.
The Dali Lama could reflect, shift his perspective and find the silver lining.
Here is what I do when I inevitably fuck up. This post was actually inspired by last night.
1. OWN IT.
This is key. When we take responsibility for our own actions, we take the POWER back. Most of the time, we want to place blame to take the heat off ourselves. That’s childish & just makes it worse.
When you fuck up, own it. Apologize. And I don’t mean the “fake” apology… like the “I’m sorry YOU did not understand what I was trying to say” That apologize is just re-directing blame. And that is not Owning It.
2. HANDLE IT.
Now you have owned it, the next step is to fix it. What are 2-3 things you can do to make it better?
WHAT CAN YOU LEARN FROM IT?
If it happened at work, what can you do to ensure it does not happen again to yourself and your staff?
If it was at home & you yelled at one of your family members – what made you see red? Can you instill a trigger to ensure the next time you communicate it in a more effective way?
Triggers are a great way to create awareness & get you into your optimal state. Want to create your own custom triggers? Book a session with me now & I will hook you up.
3. RELEASE IT.
This part is so darn important. When we hold on to our “fuck ups”, it eats us up inside. When we hold on to the guilt & frustration when we mess up, it eats us up on the inside. We start vibrating at lower levels – which is not good for us.
When it is not released, it will manifest into something ugly. Trust me. I’ve been there. Some may self-medicate through food, drugs, shopping, gossiping … while others could resort to abuse to themselves or others. It can also manifest in physical ailments.
So, make sure you create a process to release the emotions in a constructive way.
The next time you fuck up, use these 3 simple, yet powerful tips. Use the opportunity to grow & learn from it.
Because it is all about the journey, not the destination!

“I love this challenge! I watched the past week of vids in one session this morning – love your friendly warm energy, and your enthusiasm :). I wanted to let you know today’s video on Abundance and being open to RECEIVING definitely hit home for me. I will be changing my mindset on that – celebrate my achievements, receive pleasure from them (and others), and let the abundance flow! Have an awesome day and thanks for all you do and share :).” – Jenn Lang
“I’m so excited for the gift you’re sharing through The Effortless Life! Thank you! I found you in a seemingly random way. I noticed a comment you made on an Instagram post about manifesting a spot on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday, and I thought… well this is a person I’d be interested in finding out about! I hope to see you on the show one day soon. So, I quickly followed you on FB and found your website. Now I’m here to thank you for offering your wisdom to the world, in particular this free class. It looks like it aligns with the practices I’ve been working on over the last year or so, and I think it will compliment my current “efforts” very well! What you’re offering seems like just the boost I need at just the right time …
My biggest insight from Day 1 is that even though emotions can feel difficult or “bad” in the moment, there’s a way to process them to our benefit and let them teach us something valuable…they can open our hearts, and expand our reality if we give them the space and take the steps to open up to them. When we pay attention to and feel difficult emotions completely, and even thank them…then we are allowing them do their job and work in support of us.” – Gianna Filice
