There Are No Mistakes

Becoming Comfortable with Life as It Is, Not as It Should Be

By Eleanor Wiley, Elenor Wiley, Caroline Pincus
There are no mistakes there are only choices. That is the simple premise of There Are No Mistakes, which Eleanor Wiley has learned in twentyfive years of sobriety as a mediator, an artist, and a teacher. "For many years I tried to make my life conform to a lot of shoulds. Not until I got into recovery through Alcoholics Anonymous did I realize just how many 'shoulds' I had been trying to follow. Along my own travels, first through the Twelve Steps and now through my teaching around the world, I have come across many people who walk through the world in comfort. Their lives aren't easy, they have just accepted them and approach them with a certain grace and ease. As I thought about what they had in common, I identified eleven attributes." The eleven attributes cultivated include:1) Know where you came from, 2) Know your story. 3) Accept yourself. 4) Own your pain, hurt, and vulnerability. 5) Laugh at yourself. 6) Find community. 7) Take care of yourself. 8) Give yourself permission to change your mind. 9) Be willing to fall apart and put yourself back together again. 10) Create a tool box. 11) Go with the flow. This astoundingly candid and simple book is illustrated with personal stories from the author and people she has encountered on her path, along with specific and simple exercises to do at the end of each chapter.

The Courage to Be Yourself

By

Embrace The Courage to Be Yourself Authentically

This self growth focused motivational book teaches you how to find yourself. In The Courage to Be Yourself, learn to set boundaries, make peace, and find happiness with who you are in a world that projects perfection onto us.

Target harmful patterns. Surrounded by the pressures of society, we often measure ourselves by impossible standards, causing us to doubt ourselves. When this causes negative self-talk, our happiness inevitably suffers. Unhealthy mindsets can also infiltrate our relationships with others. Women can feel the need to be caretakers and sometimes put others' needs above our own. By identifying these patterns, we can set boundaries and target areas that need change—so you can love yourself properly.

Become a loving friend to yourself. While all of us certainly have a calling to love others, it is just as important to give that same love to yourself. It feels good to be yourself, but you must find yourself first. In this emotional strength book, Patton shares impactful stories to show readers how to journey from a place of fear to a life of courageous self-acceptance and real love.

Inside The Courage to Be Yourself, you’ll find:

  • How to find and be yourself through the pressures of today
  • Stories of growth and healing from Patton and other women
  • How to set boundaries, communicate more effectively, and change self-deprecating behaviors

If you liked Courage Is Calling, The Courage to Be Disliked, or How to Be Yourself, you’ll love Courage to Be Yourself.
