We had the good fortune of connecting with Dr. Christy Wise and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Dr. Christy, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success and the success of my brand is a true passion for powerfully contributing to the transformation and growth of the human spirit. My love for and deep belief in the value of my work has impacted and transformed thousands of lives because that’s what happens when you believe in something whole hardheartedly and refuse to give up. Helping, guiding, and teaching people how to find their gifts, and to use them to create lives that are rich, abundant and truly full has been my life’s purpose and meaning. In the last twenty years, I’ve been a leader, educator, clinician, humanitarian, coach and student of human behavior. I pride the work I do on being a highly educated, ethical and well-respected professional values with deep ties to making a difference. Today, I dedicate my time to deepening and widening my impact and It is the application of core values that allows me to lead, and just like many, my life’s story has been one of true triumph from insurmountable odds and who’s life exemplifies living proof that the human spirit when nurtured and loved will thrive beyond measure. Another powerful piece of my success has been driven by the power of deep compassion. Compassion for ourselves and compassion for others is literally the magic potion that gives us the freedom to embrace our imperfections & accept our true desires, Compassion helps us to stop making irrational demands of ourselves (and others) in order to believe we are lovable, “good enough” and worthy of love. And… when we believe it, really truly, deeply believe it… we live our lives like we do, and magic follows. I promise!
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Life-Sauce.com is an online personal development company that provides self paced courses for those who are hungry to grow and evolve. Noted for my work as an expert in the field of Clinical Psychology, Human Behavior and Education I’ve conducted over 20 years of breakthrough transformational work with my clients, students and peers. While on hiatus from clinical practice my coaching practice is highly successful, and today I’m most recognized as an expert in the field of personal transformation and human potential. Through positive psychology and self-empowerment my work with high profile clients, couples, athletes, and the evolution of human relationship I’ve earned numerous awards, achievements and accolades throughout my professional career. My drive and belief in human potential mixed with a very clear desire to make a difference is what I feel most excited about in my work. I got to where I am today by not allowing other people to determine my worth or ability. Like most people, I have experienced some pretty dramatic challenges in my life. Challenges that could have (and at times almost did) derailed me but instead inspired breakthrough and brand new potential. It’s definitely not been easy and at some points has felt like I was swimming up stream. I believe the thing that has set me apart compared to those who have let life’s challenges take them down is a commitment to not letting my story end in a way that didn’t move and inspire me. I never wanted my kids, friends or clients to believe that giving up or giving in is an option. The lessons I’ve learned are massive, but most importantly I believe that we all have very specific lessons that we are supposed to learn on our journey. And when we ignore them and refuse to learn those lessons, the universe screams and those lessons show up louder and louder until we can no longer ignore them. We either face them head on or spend the rest of our lives running from them. I’ve certainty learned that while it’s scary as hell to face em, it’s so much easier than running away from them. What I want the world to know about me, my story and the brand that I’ve created is ultimately a mindset that everyone of us can embrace. That mindset is about trusting that you are all that you are for a very good reason and as hokey as it sounds, we really are perfect the way we are. Allowing ourselves to be “human”, “flawed” and totally authentic is ultimately our “winning formula”. We lose when we are trying to use someones else’s “winning formula” and not our own. I realize this is all easier said than done but please know that there are highly skilled professionals that can help you do exactly that. Do not be afraid to reach out for support!
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
Id start the day with a great breakfast either in la Jolla at “The Cottage” or in Cardiff at “Swamis”. We’d go for a breathtaking hike at “Torrey Pines’ and enjoy blacks beach for great surf and interesting people watching. We’d go have lunch or happy hour in the Gas Lamp and shop at all the adorable local shops. For dinner Japanese or Mexican food in Old Town and off to listen to great local bands at the House of Blues in Solana Beach.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
