Courses and resources for individuals ready to experience more of what they want in life...and less of what they don't.

That struggle you feel is real

Open any newsfeed and you're likely to find stories covering some of the more common issues we face as a human race living in the information age.

Mostly, we see that it has brought us an increase in things we don't want, such as: stress, anxiety, and a lack of work life balance.

It's also left us with less of the things we do want, such as: a good night's sleep, authentic connections, and a sense of happiness, success and wellbeing.

More than ever before, there is a disconnect between the life we want (and know is possible) and the day-to-day experience we're having.

This disconnect creates an inner struggle, and this struggle is real.

That life you imagined?
It's closer than you think.

Your emotions hold the key

Fortunately, I have good news.

While the struggle you feel is real, the path to closing the gap between your current reality and the life you imagined is closer than you think.

The surprisingly simple (all the best solutions always turn out be so simple, right?) can be found through a better understanding of human emotion – or better said – through a better understanding of your own emotions.

I like to think of emotions as our customizable pathway to inner peace.

Every moment is an opporunity to move closer to the life you want.

Your emotions create your meaning

Human beings are meaning makers. So it's fair to say you come by it naturally. There’s a constant inner narrative that influences how you might choose to interpret what is happening in your life.​

Consider how you experience things like:
  • That coworker whose attitude really annoys you
  • That timeline you can't possibly meet
  • The boss who never has time to hear your ideas
  • The employee who always has to be told what to do and still can't seem to do it
  • The friend who never thanks you for your efforts
  • That decision you just made – was it the right one?

I'm sure you could come up with a list of your own examples from just the past week! Like I said, the struggle is real.

Your emotions start with you

Here’s why understanding your emotions matters. Even though the struggle is real, the struggle is an inner experience -- and it starts with your emotions.

And here's the key: Your emotions originate with you.

This means that with greater awareness of how to navigate your emotions, you can be 100% in charge of your inner narrative, which puts you back in the driver's seat of your life.

The goal is to learn ways to consistently make choices that put an end to the inner struggle, and restore and maintain inner peace.

About Your Instructor

Michelle Sterling

Founder, Now Back to Me

I've been designing and teaching personal development courses in the workplace for over 30 years. And in that time, I've noticed that the what trips most of us up more than anything, is trying to figure out the rules for what it takes to feel seen, heard, valued and appreciated. I've also learned that the answers to that quest aren't found in most leadership classes that just give you more models and more rules.

Here's what I now know: The answers to finding that fulfillment and acceptance we all seek are found through gaining a better understanding of our human design, and how that design impacts our day-to-day experience.

It's my mission to help people understand and accept themselves, so we can all live a more joy-filled and impactful life. I invite you to join me.
