As a teenager, I read a book called My Universities, by Maxim Gorky and I thought, it was fascinating what the protagonist (Alexei) went through, to 'learn' on his path to self-discovery and a greater understanding of the world. Well, I never thought, that I would go through such tests and challenges in my life and go through such 'universities' in life, to tell the below story of how I got here and how I am now in the fortunate place, to help business owners and entrepreneurs, overide emotional blocks and barriers (such as fear, depression and addictions), to pursue their dreams.
After reaching a new place in my career, within HR and Recruitment, where financially and professionally, I believed, I was on my way to greater heights, that could lead to a new high paying role or start a successful and profitable business, and pay off more towards my mortgages and provide more for my family, in terms of time and money. However, things did not go to plan, because I am aware today, that I reached my upper mindset threshold. Not knowing, what was happening, that started a long and very challenging struggle, which involved a lot of pain, tears, breakups, heartache and countless 'dark nights of the soul', that I questioned if I could continue, living through such an ordeal (meanwhile, thinking and feeling like a victim, that I am a good person and that why is this happening to me??).
Ultimately, with this extensive soul searching, tapping into my psychology and counselling background, very extensive research into the mind and specifically the 95% of our mind - the subconscious, I admitted (and accepted) that I had unconscious mindset blocks in my subconscious, that had grown into established emotional addictions (due to the decades of identifying myself within an unsupportive and unworthy frame of mind --- unconsciously), that had taken over my mindset, actions and ultimately my life.
Meanwhile, during this time, I pushed forward, 7 days a week, cut down on sleep and no exercise, ate food as fuel (only to survive), worked long and hard to obtain the best results; endured great distress/panic, depression, burnout and suicidal thoughts, to somehow turn things around . Finally, it took years, to understand, that however hard I pushed (consciously), it will be like flooring on the gas (or accelerator) of a car, while the other foot, is on the brake.
Result: The car is stalled.
Finally, I realised, it was not about trying even harder and putting in more effort. I had to do something different, and change my approach (or I would die trying, literally), and work on the less known part of my mind (and yet significantly larger subconscious part of the mind), because I sensed, this is not normal, there is something else, I have to do and become, in order for things, to be easier and more forthcoming and free flowing in my life; the same way, it was for other successful and fulfilled individuals.
By turning around my mindset (that included thoughts, old beliefs of myself and the importance that I gave others, on how they viewed me), I was then able to turn around my mindset, refocus on what I love doing and becoming, take care of myself through proper nutrition, exercise, establish new habits and recondition my mindset, to who I believe I wish to become.
Fast forward, many years, today, I am in the grateful and fulfilling position, to help business owners and entrepreneurs, save their precious and valuable time (and money), let go of emotional addictions (including physical addictions), trauma and past emotional memories, which equates to time that can be allocated to themselves, their family, partner/spouse, loved ones, children and their potential, contribution and legacy.
