My life changed from the first phone call I had with The Coaching Institute (TCI)!
2015 was the year I decided that my life couldn’t continue the way it had been and it was up to me to make it different. I tried for months to remember what I used to love doing and then the penny dropped. I loved learning about leadership, personal development and growth. I had always had an interest in humans and their minds, although I certainly wasn’t head of the class in high school, therefore university was out of the question.
Prior to this time, I had spent my entire adult life working in various industries predominantly as an Executive Assistant. After outgrowing the fabulous role I had been in for 7 years, I decided to share my love of health and fitness with others and began my own business as a Personal Trainer. I loved working with my fantastic clients although I had no business acumen, no mentor or coach and certainly didn’t feel I had people around me I could trust or learn from. I had taken the beliefs and behavioral patterns I had adopted in the corporate space and used them in my business.
Knowing what I know now, of course I was destined to experience some challenges! It almost took my life. I lost absolutely everything. Not a penny to my name because I was too scared to ask for help before things got out of hand.
12 months later I joined TCI and from my first phone call I knew everything I needed to; create a successful business, live a life true to my values and create my dreams was right there waiting for me to take the first step. Full support anytime I needed it. Open and honest conversations. A community of likeminded amazing people. A place to come home to.
I knew, and trusted, that everything was available to me, and within me, if I was willing to take the action and I soon discovered that I was capable of thinking differently to the way I had been taught in my 20 years in corporate life. I saw that people just like me were creating their ultimate dream business and financial security. There was possibility.
This was where I belonged.
I had finally found a place where my past story didn’t matter – all that mattered was that I knew I was capable of something more and TCI paved the way for that to happen.
I decided to commit to myself. Commit to my family. Commit to my future.
Every day, consistent, focused action and I soon had my first paying client. All I had to do was follow the steps, model excellence and get the heck out my own way to allow it to happen. Then came the second and the third and my community grew right before my eyes.
Just 12 months later and I have just opened up my own HQ where all three streams of my ‘Mind Over Matter’ brand are housed to serve our fabulous community of ROCKSTARS. My week is filled helping amazing people with a range of services and products that enhance their lives, their health, well-being and their businesses. I have more opportunities than I have ever had to work with people locally, interstate and overseas, and I am creating more wealth than I ever dreamed of.
The journey has been one filled with personal learnings, growth, emotion and such gratitude and the biggest bonus is I have fallen back in love with me, an improved version of me. For the first time in my life I feel peace.
