Born in England and moving to America was unexpected and also confusing. However, finding stability was always the challenge not just in that moment but all the way through different periods of growing up.
Going through foster care was another journey and with facing deportation orders against my mother and I after being separated from adversity, my mother was sent back to England whilst I remained in foster care more stabilised. However, adversity had not yet settled. Events of hardship took a toll but more importantly, that toll helped to find the drive that is needed to overcome any obstacle in life.
I am a mental skills coach and motivational speaker who is working hard to build the foundation of my Mindful Speaking business. I enjoy coaching people through their challenges and hardships along with finding hope and inspiration to keep on going.
The story has yet to finish and the point when I realised that there is an opportunity to help and coach people through adversity came a few years ago. When we look in today's world and how people perceive adversity, we sometimes and potentially give into the pressure of the situation at hand. When we allow this to happen, we hurt our own personal growth.
When we allow our personal growth to be hindered and damaged, we have one choice and that's either to: 1. Give in and give up or 2. Find the tools and forces within us to overcome the obstacle. Many of us don't know and some of us do know. Although it's a personal experience of adversity and triumph, the main thing to be mindful of is the language that we use when we're going through an adverse experience.
My goal and my purpose is to coach through what is challenging, what is the language between life and despair, what is the difference between success and failure and also to help within areas of personal development.
We can all walk through this journey not really understanding what we are doing with ourselves or why we are here. That's why purpose and having the 'Why' factor within our lives will help to give us direction.
When talking about power, we are referring to the personal strength and confidence with being able to share something in a way that makes an impact.
When we know that we have a gift it is up to us to use it in the right way. I believe God (or whatever you believe in) gives us battles to help not only empower but to empower others.
We are worthy of greatness but it does requires something of us to achieve it. Requires us to dig deep. Requires us to become passionate about our craft. Requires self-reflection. Requires us to bypass our old thoughts. Requires us to strive through.
