Live the fab life

009 There's always a way | Sue-Ellen Cordon

Focus on one thing you can do and expand it
— Sue-Ellen Cordon -

Why would a gorgeous woman work as a construction welder and rigger?  Sue-Ellen has a compelling answer and her mindset around wellness is something else.  We spoke about focusing on the non-negotiable in our life that gives us hope for the future in spite of a wellness challenge.

Inspire yourself with these essential insights from Sue-Ellen

We spoke about

  • The challenge of being chronically ill
  • What level of commitment it took to get well
  • The role of attitude in the process of healing
  • How creating two lists of what you can and can’t do will create change
  • Focusing on what you can do, not what you can’t do
  • How what we focus on is a magnet for more of the same
  • Doing the inner work as part of healing
  • Trusting yourself, instincts and intuition
  • Finding your “personal medicine” and incorporating in your life
  • The priority of self-care
  • Taking a leap of faith
  • Finding another way
