Face Your ACEs

Maybe you, like Carol, lived a childhood of trauma and a young adulthood of hot mess. What about that Big Deal you needed to deal with? Have you dealt? Did you already get sober, get away from the wrong partner, leave the dead-end job, get some therapy about the assault?


Yet, often, the Big Deal to Deal With in your life is tangled up with your Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Those tangles are where the Self-Aware Success Strategies work their magic, identifying the patterns that hold you back and re-wiring your brain around new patterns of success!

The long-term and inter-system impacts of the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) mean that some of us must continue to unwind, unpack, and re-pattern bits and pieces of our past that keep showing themselves. The healthier you are, the easier it is to see the dis-ease. The more whole we are, the easier it is to see the broken edges. Think about it: the more you allow yourself to use Trust as a Success Strategy, the more aware you will become about patterns in how you apply it—the good, the bad, and the ugly patterns that still need some rewiring.

The seven Self-Aware Success Strategies (the SASS) are the perfect healing tools for this re-patterning and rewiring of unsuccessful strategies we adopted to cope with ACEs. The more we heal old patterns with self-awareness, and the more self-aware we become, the easier it is to see the remaining places of dis-ease, the strategies that hold us back rather than help us rise, and take the next step, and the next, in changing self-defeating patterns.
