Today, as I was driving back home after dropping my son off at a friend’s house, I got to thinking. It’s been over a year that I decided to say yes to myself.
Prior to the start of 2021, I was trying hard to reach my goals and become so successful that my even my mind would be blown. No matter what I did, though, nothing was happening for me. I kept trying to move forward and it seemed no matter what I did I kept losing ground and moving in the wrong direction. This was a theme in my life.
Let me explain, when I was in my early teens, I was in a car accident which cause head trauma to me. In high school, this was a bigger deal than it was at any other point of my life. I remember wearing my hair a certain way to hide behind the scar and indentation on my forehead. I remember sitting on the bus to go home one day. As I sat there in my seat waiting for the bus to head home, a boy in my grade passed by me on the bus and said, “hey, scar face.” I was mortified. I walked home and cried; my confidence shattered.
You see, I had always been referred to as the pretty girl. Despite my desire to be known as the smart girl or athletic girl, pretty was what defined me. So, to hear this boy say words that attacked my out appearance was unsettling. In hindsight and after some discussion with the boy later, he didn’t mean anything harmful by his comment. My perception had clouded my ability to be neutral about his words. This caused me to place meaning behind his comment.
That was the thing that held me back in my life and that was the thing that defined me. I couldn’t quite grasp this concept at a young age, however.
Perception is a result of perceiving or observing; once we observe and take information in through our senses, we create a mental image of what the incoming data means.
Prior to becoming an adult and allowing my brain to fully develop, I did not have this wherewithal. What I perceived, I believed and what I believed became my reality. This is how it happens for the majority.
Many operate day in and day out in this construct; some awaken to the possibility of a different way of living that is more empowering. Whatever way a person lives is a choice that is made by everyone.
I had read several books on personal development, and I had served in the military which is quite different than anything I had experienced prior. I had obtained my Associate, Bachelor, and Master’s degrees. I was educated, yet; nothing had taught me how to improve my life by choosing to stay at cause. I had been afforded the opportunity to make choices without changing my perceptions. As a result, I was consistently living in effect with many things. I wanted more out of life, but I felt stuck. I felt stuck…
Until I decided to invest in myself and find my way out of the maze. In 2020, I was on a journey of personal discovery. I had been working with some coaches to help guide me in finding my way and finding my truth.
I found my way somehow (I was not steering the boat) to the Yager Training Company at the beginning of 2021. I had no idea what I had signed up for. I was about to embark on my newest journey yet.
I sat through the 3-day Profit Accelerator. In 3 days, my whole life changed. I wanted more because I now realized how powerful my mind is.
In that 3-day training, I committed to me, and my future instantly became brighter. That’s it! I decided to invest in myself. This was the best decision I have ever made.
Are you ready to invest in yourself and transform the way you perceive the world around you? Are you ready to start taking massive action in your life and/or business that will lead you to places you have only dreamed about?
If you answered yes to either, signing up for ECA Level I and Level II is the next step.
Get started on your journey of finding your best YOU!
