From Fear to Fire: Secrets to Overcome Fear, Embrace your Gifts and Achieve Success- On Self-Forgiveness

This is the place where real people share real challenges. And where you can find a common bond and uncommon wisdom through their stories. Use tips from the breakthroughs of others to jump start your success. Speaker, author, adventurer, and Host Heather Hansen O’Neill takes you on the journey from fear to fire. The focus today is on Raw Truth and Self-Forgiveness.

This week’s theme is meant to help you find, love, and be yourself. In a challenging world one of the hardest and most important things we can do is find Self-Forgiveness.

From beauty pageants to black eyes, Mistie Layne went from becoming a prominent surgeon to facing forty years in prison after her horrific cocaine addiction forced her to rock bottom, when she took the life of another. In prison, she found strength in writing and developed a four step C.O.P.E.= HOPE method which walks you through releasing toxic guilt, shame, and anger. She believes self-forgiveness and love are the keys to true joy and inner peace. After her prison release, she humbly rebuilt a career in nuclear medicine and fervently speaks her Raw Truth. By sharing her story of redemption, she hopes to educate and inspire a movement of transparency to judge less and mentor more.

She’s been chosen as one of the Top 25 World Finalists in The Next Impactor competition. After hearing her story, you may choose to go to that link and vote for Mistie!
