What to do when things go wrong: How to use everything to your advantage. (Or – What’s right about this I’m not getting?)
May 21, 2013
Hosted by Lisen Bengtsson, Marilyn Bradford, Anne Maxwell, Susanna Mittermaier, Jonas Svensson, Ricky Williams, and Tamara Younker
When things don’t turn out the way you expected, when something occurs that you judge as bad, wrong or terrible, what do you do? Do you go into trauma drama and upset? Do you hold onto a glum, angry or depressed attitude? What if there was a different possibility? What if you could ask questions and gain a different perspective on any event? Everything can be a contribution, even those things that seem terrible in the moment.
The Value of Controversy
Tuesday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
Can you imagine a world where everyone knows they can make a difference? What if we can create a conscious world that offers different choices, where our futures are creative, generative and sustainable, and each of us is a contribution to greater possibilities?
We create consciousness in each moment we have the courage to choose a controversial reality. To be controversial is to choose kindness instead of judgment. To be controversial is to include everything and judge nothing. To be controversial is to be a leader in creating a new reality, whether anyone follows or not.
Most people would rather maintain the status quo than stand out from the crowd. Would you? Or are you willing to have the courage to create something greater than has ever existed before?
Join our hosts as they explore dynamic tools that allow you to choose in every moment to be conscious and create that difference you know is possible-a world we would be grateful to live in.

Mag. Susanna Mittermaier is a licensed clinical psychologist, CFMW and Access Consciousness TM Facilitator who is creating a new paradigm for psychology and therapy, Pragmatic Psychology, using the revolutionary tools of Access Consciousness.
Susanna, born in Vienna, Austria, empowers people to know that they know, to be who they truly are and to the choice of a more joyful way of living. In addition to becoming a psychologist, Susanna also studied teaching, philosophy, linguistics and practiced other modalities. As a child Susanna looked at the world and wondered why people are so unhappy when living can be so much ease and joy. For a while she forgot her knowing and became depressed. She knew that had to change! It was time to step up, to be and to create what she was truly capable of! At that time, she came in contact with Access Consciousness, which changed everything.
Susanna describes psychology as helping you to adjust to this reality, and adding consciousness takes you out of the box to access more of you than you could imagine was possible!
Today Susanna travels the world facilitating sessions, workshops and Access Consciousness classes in various languages. She applies the Access Consciousness tools in psychiatry in Sweden and in her private practice facilitating remarkable change. What do people say? "You are the weirdest, most joyful psychologist I have ever met, I feel insanely sane, my world changed!
Jonas Svensson has always had the knowing that there must be a greater possibility in the world. Constantly walking around wondering “What else is possible?” and asking “How else can I develop myself?” led him to all kinds of different techniques and modalities. But it wasn’t until Access Consciousness TM came in to his life that everything started to change towards what he was looking for. With the Access tools and techniques everything started to change with speed and ease, with the result of a totally different reality showing up.
From having the right career, nice title, good salary, and awesome benefits he chose to give it all up and follow his knowing of what he wanted to create as his life. “It must be possible for life to be more fun than this” was the source for just jumping and starting to create something else. Constant change towards more fun, more expansion and more consciousness every day has been the reality ever since.
With his background in marketing and sales as category manager, project leader and sales person within different companies, Jonas has developed a broad competence and expertise around creating and generating business.
As a Certified Access Facilitator, Jonas offers Access Consciousness core classes, private sessions, tele-classes and workshops in many areas such as money, relationships, conscious leadership and much more.
Ricky Williams is an internationally known speaker, traveling the world to create different possibilities for children and adults. Drawing on his 17-year award winning athletic career as a college and professional football player in the USA and his studies of alternative healing modalities, including massage and teaching yoga, Ricky empowers individuals to know more is possible.
In 1999, Ricky created the Ricky Williams Foundation to empower kids by giving them the space and the support to be themselves in an environment that fosters choice and awareness. As Ricky says, “What makes the work we do with the kids different is that we don't look at these kids as being disadvantaged. We are about empowering them to see what else is possible for them, their classmates, their community and the world. We are not about "fixing" anything, and more about creating something different.”
Ricky works with people from all walks of life, teaching them the tools to embrace who they are and be willing to generate a future that they can look forward to creating and enjoying. A leader who is willing to out create controversy, Ricky is an invitation to people to not let anything get in their way.
