Revitaled Reintegration Services’ Operations Director and Counselling Lead, Cheddi Julien, is the proud creator of an internationally recognized blog, Motivating.Academy. As a mentor to at-risk youth for nearly 20 years, Cheddi has heard the same story been told over and over again. A young person makes a mistake that leads to a poor decision that leads to another poor decision, and another, and another. Before that person knows it, they are caught up in a lifestyle that they don’t really want to be in, but feel they have no choice but to pursue.
Now a Pastor, Cheddi is counseling adults and youth who have made poor decisions. His faith-oriented approach to life coaching and counselling takes in the form of a simple formula: the mistakes I’ve made versus the mistakes I’m about to make. His methods, which are adapted to be non-faith-oriented or faith-oriented (depending on the client’s preference), are designed to help clients identify the lifestyle patterns that have gotten them to the place that they are in. Primarily used to help individuals looking to make positive changes in their lives, his goal is to help them to break free from patterns leaving them stuck, and to pursue their dreams, goals, and ideal lifestyles.
Below is an excerpt from one of his most highly acclaimed articles “Mistakes I’ve Made versus Mistakes I Am About To Make.” The link to read more can be found here.
