We caught up with the brilliant and insightful Seanette Haynes a few weeks ago and have shared our conversation below.
Seanette, thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. What’s the kindest thing anyone has ever done for you?
While dating my now husband, as we got to know each other we had a series of crucial conversations. He saw past my mistakes and identified weak mindset to put it lightly. I’ve never had anyone sit me down and give it to my straight; no chaser. It was extremely challenging to go through and face myself. These crucial conversations mattered so much because plainly put; your life is a by product of your thinking. To date real and honest communication is vital for successful partnership and growing relational intimacy. I’m beyond grateful as I’ve dreamed of having my husband like in my life even thou I didn’t know how badly back then.
Seanette, love having you share your insights with us. Before we ask you more questions, maybe you can take a moment to introduce yourself to our readers who might have missed our earlier conversations?
Just a few years ago I would have said I’m an average individual trying to figure this thing out called life. Lately I’ve experienced a level of growth that has completed changed me from the inside out. I’m talking mentally and spiritually; I’m not average but rather purposed to succeed in how I live my life. My service to the people is personal development through life coaching services wrapped up in what I call Company Rules. At CR it’s all about the the hard questions that encourage personal growth that people crave for but don’t know how or have the courage to dare try. CR approached to healing is gentle but also hard hitting as you will not achieve greatness believing things will always be a bed of roses.
We often hear about learning lessons – but just as important is unlearning lessons. Have you ever had to unlearn a lesson?
I had to unlearn harmful self sabotaging behaviors and take responsibility for my life mistakes. I owe myself and responsible for my success. I learned this when I finally realized I didn’t value myself through repeated consequences and mistakes in failed relationships. After so many times of hitting the wall, I was glad to finally see the light and begin to deal with my values, forgive myself, own my mistakes and help myself by finding knowledge in books and people who also overcame similar struggles.
Training and knowledge matter of course, but beyond that what do you think matters most in terms of succeeding in your field?
Owning and healing from past trauma is the greatest and most important training/knowledge that has help me and helped others be successful. There is a place for book sense; but life experience is multilayered and when you uncovers each experience there is so much knowledge to heal from and share with others seeking change.
