Be Inspired! Be Very Inspired!

Last Update: September 22, 2014

Hi everyone, sorry it's been so long since I touched base here but that's been for a very good reason! My feet have never touched the ground because I've been so busy. Read on to find out why!

At fifty four, single, middle aged, overweight, five daughters, eight grandchildren, no degree or remarkable qualifications, I have cracked it!

Yes me. I am finally being who I want to be, doing what I want to do and doing it the way I want to do it! All because I decided to follow my dreams.

Never, ever in a million years, even if you had asked me a year ago, would I have envisaged myself writing this post.
Me, Mrs Ordinary, who was just trying to learn how to make a living online here in our wonderful WA.

I have made some friends here, who, as it has turned out, will now probably be life long friends since we discovered that we all had something in common. We all needed to find our purpose for being here, to find out the real meaning of our lives, to find our real deep down passions, our talents and skills, some might call it their niche in life so that we could take our lives forward in massive leaps and bounds. This, as I'm sure you can imagine, brought us together and took us on the most unforgettable journey.

So, how did I do it? By not giving up - by going for what I wanted and not letting life's trials and tribulations stop me. By being determined and focused and by hanging on to that belief that the right thing would come along. I went in search of who and what I needed until I found them.

And Oh Boy! Where do I begin to tell you how it has changed my life!

You can see on my main page how it all started. After this, my WA friends joined me and along with other people we became a close knit, happy and friendly, global team, with people from USA, UK, Greece, Australia, New Zealand and Africa. We have members who are teachers, people who have been in the forces, people who have gone through disastrous relationships and been left with little or no self esteem. We have people who are full time carers for their relatives. I could go on and on.. We are all so diverse yet we all needed the same thing. Someone to help us get to where we wanted to be.

Together we have been through this incredible life transforming process.

We wanted to find the path we should really have been on and find out why we hadnt been successful up to now. We wanted that feeling of excitement that you get when you're happy to jump out of bed because you're looking forward to the day so much. To live with passion and purpose. To learn how to live deliberately and take life by the scruff of the neck and just run with it!! And to find inner peace and that very old fashioned thing called joy, which so many of us crave in this crazy world we live in..

Doing our free course has empowered us. It has given us so many opportunities we didn't know existed both as a group and independently.

I have just found a totally new outlook, a whole new life and a whole new way of life. There is no going back - and the only way from here is up!

And.. I'm absolutely tickled pink to tell you that from this, I was invited to work personally with the big guy himself - who is lovely by the way - so nice, so approachable. So anything you want to know, just ask!
