I have never thought of becoming a life coach until 2015. To understand what changed I need to look back a bit…
In 2002 we decided to move to Canada from Hungary. We craved a better life for our two daughters, my husband and myself.
We were establishing our new life: we learned English, found jobs and raised our kids.
Fast forward to 2013. This year my dad became sick, diagnosed with cancer and he passed away 7 months later. His sickness brought up many hidden fears in our family.
I am an only child. I was told one night that my dad didn’t want to get well because his grandkids were taken away and he can’t see them anymore. This hit me very hard. I knew intellectually that it is not true but emotionally I believed that I betrayed my parents.
A few weeks after his funeral I found a lump in my left breast and soon I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The world collapsed. I was 42 and wanted to live.
I don’t know where did the strength come from but I very quickly decided that something good has to come out of my diagnosis. I refused to call it cancer, I called it my condition. I didn’t know anything about how we create our reality with our thinking but I felt from the very first moment that this is exactly the product of my thinking, the guilt I felt leaving my parents behind. I wanted to punish myself subconsciously. The illness was what I manifested with my thoughts.
It was also deliberating. If created my reality then I can change it too! I started to listen to lectures by Louise Hay and Wayne Dyer. I was scared of my own thoughts and had to occupy my mind. I discovered that I could help myself!
My physical healing happened faster than the emotional. I was so excited about personal development that I talked about it all the time!
Before my illness I was an office manager and loved it. After I recovered and went back to the office I couldn’t find joy in work anymore.
One day I was watching a video of Tony Robbins and his work fascinated me! He has coach trainings and I started to study. Being a life coach is a great way to teach people about the endless possibilities personal improvement can offer!
2016 came and I started the year with sending my resignation letter to my boss. I was scared but my heart’s desire was bigger than the fear of the unknown.
In May I had my certificate and started the coaching business.
I work with women who give selflessly to others and forgot about themselves. They don’t appreciate what they do and harshly criticize themselves.
Self-love and self-care is part of my coaching. I teach my clients that everything starts within. Small changes lead to bigger ones. What they think now shapes their life. They have power: they just need to learn how to use it!
Being a life coach is an endless learning process. I always look for ways to improve. Seeing my clients’ happiness and achievements is the best feeling! I am grateful to be with them on their journey.
I needed to go through cancer to learn that I am responsible for my own life. I want my clients learn this without going through life threatening illnesses. Change now. It’s easier than fighting for your survival.
I want to help whoever is ready and I am sure then our paths will cross one day.
All is well.
