As a teenager I had a stutter, and the worst fear in my world was speaking in front of a group of people. I recall that at age 12 or 13 I was assigned to speak in front of a class in a debate. The fear was so intense and I thought that I would avoid doing this most uncomfortable thing (public speaking) at all cost. As it turned out I did not have to give that talk. I was in a car accident that incapacitated me for about a week. As a result I avoided this speaking assignment. I was in hospital and in pain, yet I was happy that I did not have to face my big fear of public speaking. I was happy that I did not have to do something that would likely embarrass me, cause me yet another failure, and leave me feeling fearful and low. Looking back I realised that my unconscious mind helped me to avoid this event by creating an accident. Looking back I realised that fear and limitation were ruling my life and my outcomes. I felt like I was not in charge of my life, and that my unconscious mind was driving the bus and I was simply a passenger. Have you ever felt this way?
At age 14 I attended a seminar titled ‘Your mind and you’. It was run in Tamworth NSW and went for 4 days. I learned that I was in control of my life and that I had a choice. I became stutter free through the use of affirmations. This was so exciting. This was the beginning of a whole new experience for me. This experience became a metaphor for my life.
Since that time I have attended many seminars, and continue to change and evolve. I have recently begun to prepare and run my own seminars. I am a believer in the power of the mind to transform, and have spent my life developing the skill, power, passion, motivation, determination and humor to help other to move from where they are to where they need to be. Currently I attend a seminar every year, and now I also run my own seminars, and outstanding results continue to manifest.
