I was once where you are...
I'll never forget. It was June 16th, 2014, a beautiful Friday afternoon. My colleague back then had asked me to speak in front of her peers and share my story to inspire and help them through their own journey. I knew I had a good story ... But why would anyone other than my mom be interested in what I had to say? What would be the added value?
My little voice was so loud and convincing that I turned her down using some lame excuse.
She never asked me again! Til this day I cringe thinking about what I did and why I did it.
See, I learned that how you talk to yourself and about yourself will determine how others will view you but also how much success and happiness you’ll be able to create in your life.
From deprecating self talks to becoming an agent of transformation.
Change is HARD and I'd lie if I said that it was different for me. How do you think I know you so well?
For a very long time...
I hid behind all kinds of pretexts and excuses not to show up, not to lean in because I was too afraid of other people’s opinion of me and truly believed I had nothing interesting or valuable to add.
I was always the best at promoting everyone else but when it came to me…well, that’s a whole other story!
How and why?
Probably because of programmed limiting beliefs and insecurities that I had inherited from my family and general life setbacks.
I was always (and still) known as THE Social Queen, the all time Connector, who somehow always managed to attract the most interesting, unique and successful individuals into her life. I’m also known as the go-to person for great advice and ideas. I spent hours (and still do) decrypting the underlying messages of anyone’s problems to find the best suited solutions for that person.
And that's where the paradox lies
How people viewed me didn’t connect with how I viewed myself. I felt unaccomplished and insecure and nothing anyone said could change my mind.
Until I decided to re-write my story.
There was no way around it - I had to completely change my narrative. The ultimate price tag wasn’t worth it. I was so ready to claim my power and my mind to finally be set free! I decided to take massive action and create my new Destiny!
With countless hours of deep diving and learning from the best coaches, I finally understood that for years I had created a blueprint in absolute disfavor of Me.
I started saying “No” to the things (and thoughts) that didn’t serve me and a big “Yes” to life! Since then I have no problem asking for what I want and deserve (my non- negotiables) and I don’t let my fears dictate my life anymore. It may seem simple but to get to this point took me years!
Braving it and fully committing to my own transformation became my driving force, the thread that connected all dots.
See, I’m here to help you reprogram those limiting beliefs and patterns that are keeping you stuck, small and scared.
Success is an inside job and if I could do it, so can you!
