Here’s what inspired me to begin teaching about love and authenticity. From a BUSINESS standpoint...My corporate career (for 20+ years) included being a recruiter, helping others find their perfect job... and coaching employees and managers on how to be their best selves at work.
My life went to an ENTIRELY new level when I accepted a position as a Vice President with Tony Robbins. Tony is self-help author, motivational speaker and the success coach of all success coaches and my 4.5 years with him was LIFE-CHANGING. For many reasons....
I learned about limiting beliefs, the power of your emotions and your vocabulary, shifting your story, changing your approach.... And one of my personal favorites, I learned about the importance of understanding yourself, what you are passionate about, and determining what you want your life to look like, then making that happen. (It’s up to YOU!)
And from a PERSONAL standpoint, while I was working with Tony, I found myself in the middle of a divorce, which was SCARY... I was stepping into the UNKNOWN, with massive uncertainty. How would I make this work? Being a single mom? Having a big mortgage? Alone? I didn’t know how to do this. I was in financial and emotional turmoil and the fear was very real.
I had to rely heavily on the tools I learned from TR.... In the most simple terms: Recognize the fear, embrace it, and move forward in spite of it. Focusing on your future and what you want your life to look like will serve you.
Fast forward to a year or so later and I’m back in the dating world after 8.5 years of marriage.... And as a big time networker and extrovert I thought finding quality people to date would be easy. Boy was I W-R-O-N-G. I tried every online site there was... I told everyone who would listen “I’m single. Who do you know?” I even went to a dating agency, where I paid thousands of dollars to get almost zero interaction with them and a total of 3 bad dates that were complete mismatches.
Although I was frustrated, disheartened and discouraged, I believe what was happening for me during this time was purposeful and guided.... When I went on dates, and the person wasn’t a match for me for whatever reason, my recruiting brain would shift to “who can I introduce this person to?” and as I began doing this more and more, I started having SUCCESSES... even engagements!
