In my first life, I was a physiotherapist. So, I already understood the stress and its effect on people's lives. What struck me was how people kept coming back. After successful treatments, they'd get better, but after a while, they'd return with the same symptoms.
When I was struck by a stress-related illness in 1998, I experienced first-hand what stress can do to one's mind, body and emotional well-being. When life hits you like that at 38 years old, it really does something to you... Doctors told me that I would probably never be able to climb stairs again and certainly never be able to work again. I also had a fantastic partner and three young children to care for, which wasn't acceptable to me. Despite what the doctors told me, I said, No way, I can't accept this. I cannot accept that as my truth!
I tried every treatment out there, but nothing changed. Then I decided to take my life into my own hands and began to study ancient wisdom and modern science. That's how I came to the personal development world, the power of the mind and the subconscious mind. Because that is where it all starts, with your self-worth, inner dialogue, self-image and self-care. I applied this to myself, and I began to heal. It took me five years to get here, but now I'm a healthy grandmother of three. I climb the stairs every day, and I work every day. That personal health challenge I overcame made me who I am today.
I've learned from my experience, from doing the work myself and helping others, for almost 20 years. My mission has been to warn people and help them before they reach the point I got - lying there in bed, unable to take care of my children, take care of myself, or do anything. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. My purpose is to guide people to apply the fundamental principles of authentic living, which lead to authentic success and fulfilment in life and business.
