081: What to Do When Life Doesn’t Meet Your Expectations with Christine Hassler

Having the right skill set to navigate life’s disappointments can be the key factor in our story hindering or helping forward progress. Being able to understand and grow from hardship is essential.

My guest today talks about these times when life doesn’t meet our expectations as Expectation Hangovers. You gotta love the frame on that one!

Christine Hassler is the best-selling author of three books, most recently Expectation Hangover: Free Yourself From Your Past, Change your Present and Get What you Really Want. She left her successful job as a Hollywood agent to pursue a life she could be passionate about. For over a decade, as a keynote speaker, retreat facilitator, spiritual psychologist and life coach, and host of the top-rated podcast “Over it and On With It”, she has been teaching and inspiring people around the world. Christine believes once we get out of our own way, we can show up to make the meaningful impact we are here to make.
