#01 Embrace the suck. How our darkest times can propel us toward our best life.

Updated: Jun 16, 2021

Episode #01

We all go through difficult times. Challenges are a part of life and even though they may seem inevitable, we do have the power to find the silver lining in every dark cloud.

In today’s episode, we deep-dive into how easy it is to forget that our biggest breakthroughs often come after our biggest struggle and we share our thoughts on how choosing to embrace the suck can lead you towards living your best life.

We talked about:

  • how a “failed” business lead to a new adventure

  • embracing your feelings and learning to surrender

  • how even the darkest times can lead us to our purpose and bring us back into alignment

  • how a shift in perspective can help you understand and be grateful for opportunities to grow

  • why being a victim of your circumstance is a choice and how to move to a place that serves you better

  • Ilonka’s biggest lessons about business partnerships and the one thing she would do differently if she could go back

  • how the Universe is always guiding you towards your desires

As entrepreneurs, we are naturally more comfortable with taking risks. Becoming comfortable with the worst-case scenario is an important part of building a successful business. Growing in mind and spirit can only happen once we are willing to step out of our comfort zones.

Lightbulb moment: Bad Situations can bring about the best outcomes. Learn to embrace the suck.
