Turning WTF Moments into WTL Lessons: A Guide for Teens and Tweens

Welcome to Our Journey of Learning and Growth

Welcome to the very first episode of our podcast, 'What's the Lesson'! Our mission is to guide you and the young people in your life to transform those WTF (What the F@#!) moments into WTL (What's The Lesson) moments instead. It's about finding the lesson in every situation, as hard as that may be & as long as it might take, and using them to become the leader of your life.

Reflecting on Five Pivotal Years

In this inaugural episode, we take a stroll down memory lane, revisiting some pivotal points in our past that have led us to this significant work. It's a journey of discovery, learning, and most importantly, growth.

Our Promise to You

We promise to always be H.O.T. – that's Humble, Open, and Transparent. We believe these values are crucial in fostering real + meaningful conversations.

Key Lessons from the Episode

  1. Growing Beyond 'Know-it-All' (06:00): Do we ever truly grow out of the 'know-it-all' phase? It's a question worth exploring as we touch on self-awareness as it relates to personal growth.

  2. Learning from Unsuccessful Outcomes (07:42): Some of the most valuable lessons come from situations that didn’t end as we expected them to. It's about turning failures into stepping stones.

  3. The Necessity of Experience for Kids (12:10): We discuss why it's crucial for kids to have certain experiences and how those experiences help shape their character & decision-making skills.

  4. The Role of Trusted Adults (15:17): Your kids need other trusted adults in their lives. We delve into why this support system is not only essential but crucial for their development.

  5. Listening to Intuition (17:58): We emphasize the importance of listening to that still small voice within, that helps guide personal decisions and life paths.

  6. Giving Yourself Permission (27:56): Sometimes, all we need is permission to pursue our dreams. And we're here to give you just that!

  7. The Importance of Reducing Noise (28:55): In a world full of distractions, drowning out the noise is vital in finding purpose and clarity.
