Another story and author that grabbed my attention is Marcelle Charrois. In her story, ‘Stop, Reverse, and Celebrate!,’ Marcelle recalls a tough time in her childhood when she was faced with seeing her situation from a different perspective. As she has looked at her life and how she turns challenges into authentic experiences, she discovered a method to help turn things around called the SRC method.
Now she helps her clients to do the same with the SRC method! If you’re faced with a situation that is not expressing who you truly are, you should:
Stop and get in touch with your feelings
Reverse the situation. Challenge the status quo and start asking questions about whether this situation is true, real, etc. And what can be done or thought differently?
Celebrate your new perspective
Of course, this is my quick summary. You’ll have to read her story in the book for the full scoop!
As I’ve learned more about Marcelle, it seems she is someone who has always been very much in tune with her inner child. This has allowed her to be more fully present in her life and in her business. I had the opportunity to interview her and ask a few questions. Here’s what I learned:
How did you get into this collection of inspiration with folks like Jack Canfield?
For the past 2 years, I have coached fellow authors in the Messenger Mini-Books – Movement of Change program which was spearheaded by Habit of Attraction coach and founder Robert Evans in 2008. Having written and self-published my own book in the very first offering of the program, I went on to guide other first time and more seasoned authors through the creative process and the various publishing aspects including the copy and design of their book covers and manuscript editing.
In August 2011, all the authors in this program were offered an opportunity to submit a chapter to be considered for inclusion in the Pearls of Wisdom book, and I was more than happy to send in a submission. A couple of months later, I received confirmation that I had been given the last available spot in the book. I am so thrilled at the amazing gift and opportunity it is to be on this journey alongside such seasoned bestselling authors as well as other bright stars in transformational leadership.
How would you describe the nature of what your chapter is about?
My chapter titled “Stop, Reverse and Celebrate!” presents a simple process that shows you how to reconnect with your intuitive instincts, true identity and passion while actively reversing the undesirable effects of social conditioning so you can not only live but celebrate the life that you are meant to live!
I know the publisher looked for authors such as yourself who are “up and coming” leaders in self-help. What is your expertise in “self-help”?
As a heart intelligence coach, I draw upon the above-mentioned wide-ranging background and experience to help people create their best life today. In my first book, “The Alien In Your Closet: Open the Door to Your Inner Child and Unleash Your True Destiny!”, I use my special brand of humor as I share a simple process by which the reader is reacquainted with their inner child and internal guidance system, reconnected with their unique gifts, and provided with tools to establish ways to express those gifts more freely and readily.
I firmly believe that anyone who commits to taking this journey will be well equipped to rediscover their true worth and purpose, and will be empowered to create the life of their dreams!
Most people know about Jack Canfield from the ‘Chicken Soup’ books and Marci Shimoff from her ‘Happy’ book … How would you like your readers to think of you? What is your “signature niche”?
I help people transform old programming, obstacles and challenges into stepping stones to their deepest joy and passion and ultimately living the life they truly wish to create using a unique heart-centered approach. This approach facilitates the process of tapping into your own heart intelligence to naturally bring about the lasting positive outcomes that may have eluded you for years. It is what I call ‘True2HeartLiving’ and this is what constitutes my signature niche.
What is your most central and compelling “Pearl of Wisdom”?
The best life you can create for yourself is one that intimately knows, honors and expresses YOUR truth!
Where can readers learn more about you?
