First is the “shameful” action you took that you are keeping secret because you think it goes against the ‘rules’ you are supposed to live by;

then there’s the false story you’ve been telling yourself about that action usually this goes something like “I’m a bad person because of my secret”;

and finally, today you are seeing the results of living a life that’s been built around this lie, this false identity.

It’s time to break free of that false sense of self and forge a new identity based on who you truly are and are meant to be.
My secret is I lied about my employment experience on a job application. I got the job but have always felt underqualified and it has kept me from seeking promotions. The Secret-Breaking System helped me get past these feelings of failure and apply for – and get! – a promotion.

Why do we need a 10 Stage System to do all this?

Because whether small, silly or serious, we’ve all been conditioned to play by the rules, hide our secrets and let them define us and those patterns are deeply ingrained I’m terrified of not being accepted by others. My secret behavior is that I people please and say yes when I mean no. I over commit and resent others and avoid my own wants and desires to play by the rules. This played out in a big way with my husband. I wanted to adopt a baby and he didn’t. I went along with it and people pleased knowing that the baby meant everything to me. After doing the Ten-Stage Secret-Breaking System, I got a voice and we adopted our beautiful baby girl. That never rules, hide our secrets and let them define us and those patterns are deeply ingrained in us. We lean into our secrets, the story, the drama, the shame and get comfortable. Our dirty little secrets are serious business because they have tentacles that keep our entire lives small.

Curious about secrets that I have heard from hundreds of women in my professional and personal life as a Master Certified Coach, trainer and mentor? Here are a few:
...and on and on and on.
