If you’re looking for guidance around unmet expectations, here it is.


I am so excited to share this honest, empowering, insightful conversation with my dear sister friend Christine Hassler. Christine and I met years ago through our work, and it is such a gift every time I talk with her.

Christine Hassler is a best-selling author, keynote speaker, master coach, and podcast host who is committed to guiding people and organizations into their highest potential. She left her successful job as a Hollywood agent at 25 to pursue a life she could be passionate about . . . but it did not come easily. After being inspired by her own unexpected challenges and experiences, she realized her journey was indeed her destination.

Today, she supports individuals in answering the questions: “Who Am I, What do I want, and How do I get it?” Christine is a master coach who combines life coaching with the principles of spiritual psychology. She is passionate about supporting people out of suffering and limitation and into fulfillment. 

This conversation is about relationships, self-compassion, letting go of “personal development arrogance” and so much more. I took several notes for myself from it and I hope you do too.

The first law of spirit is acceptance.
