When I turned 18 I saved everything I could and traveled to Nepal to become a volunteer because I wanted to make a difference in the world.
I’d always been a spiritually focused person and while in Nepal I discovered Vipassana meditation. For ten days I stayed in a Monastery in the Kathmandu Hills and sat in silence learning this technique. It was here I experienced first hand the ability to access the potential that lies within each of us.
But a few short years later lost my way… I struggled to find my place in the world. I resented the daily grind – going to work just to pay the bills felt like selling my soul for peanuts!
Lost, unfulfilled and also a little reclusive; I jumped from career to career. This cycle played out in my life for years and I found myself becoming depressed and anxious about establishing myself in a “career”. My biggest fear was that I wasn’t good enough to make a difference in the world in a way that was meaningful to me.
I thought about doing something I was passionate about but I was terrified of failing. I enrolled in course after course, gaining one certificate after the next hoping it would help me overcome the fear of failure that suffocated and followed me everywhere I went.
I spent lots of time and money trying to build confidence.
I attended ‘Unleash the Power Within’ (UPW) with Tony Robbins. And for a short time, I felt empowered to take more action in my life. I even surprised myself and walked across hot coals during that powerful event. But it didn’t take long for the magic to wear off.
A few years later I enrolled in T Harv Ekers Quantum Leap Program. As part of this program, I attended Enlightened Warrior Camp where together with my tribe we stayed in Malaysian forest and overcome a series of challenges together.
What I learned is that empowering others also empowered me. I walked away with renewed strength, resilience, and hope.
By now I had dreams of leaving the corporate world to grow my very own online business… I wanted to be finally free from my job… I wanted to surround myself with like-minded people.
But I had agonizing memories of attempting to start a business in the past and FAILING!… It was time to GET REAL WITH MYSELF!… I couldn’t do this on my own
Through Adversity Came Strength
I first began to believe in myself and gain the skills I needed to create my own blog and business after I enrolled in a digital marketing education program.
I had access to the coaching I needed to overcome my fears, build a profitable business and learn how to market it online. And who would’ve guessed… I started earning money!
