When Dr Suzanne Henwood sent me a message to tell me I would love mBraining and that I needed to get my Self trained I already had 25+ years of coaching, training and consulting under my belt. I had multiple qualifications and used a range of modalities in the work that I did with clients.
However, her timing was spot on. I was ready to do something different with my life. I was at a place where I had recently travelled through Africa, bought a house with my life-partner and been offered the opportunity to become a Director in the consulting firm I was employed by. Everything seemed to be going fabulously.
And yet …
There was an unhappiness within me. I wanted something to change. And that was my professional sphere. I mentioned to Suzanne that I was considering setting up my own business as a coach, learning leader and consultant … and she said ‘mBraining’.
In no way did I hesitate. I have huge respect for Suzanne and will share that story with you another time. She introduced me to Wilbert Molenaar who was due to deliver the mBIT Cerfication in the UK a few months later. A short conversation later and I was signed up.
Fast forward 5 months and I’m sitting in the training room half way through Day 1 wondering quite what I’ve got my Self into. I dropped out of science when I was 15 years old and my head brain is in overdrive attempting to take this new modality in … and yet, I already know I’m hooked. By the time I am certified as a mBIT Coach at the end of Day 4 I am ready to step into the world in a different way.
As a person as well as a professional. My life has transformed because I now start every day and all decisions from my heart – from compassion – for my Self and for others. I then move to my head – my creativity – and open my Self to new pathways, new options, new ideas. And I swing into my gut – my courage – to check in as to which of these options align with my Self and with others before taking a decision to move forward in new ways.
Who I am continues to change as I consciously focus on being my most compassionate, creative and courageous me every day. I am taking better care of my Self and of others. And I have the courage to say no to what no longer aligns with me, to let go and to move on. My partner, friend, family and professional relationships have all evolved, continuing to bring a depth of awesoming that is new to me.
There have been hard decisions to make. And now my life moves from strength to strength as I grow my business and deliver mBIT training globally to people from all professions.
You, too, can have a life that is as you dream for it to be. mBraining is a profoundly simple and simply profound framework that anyone can use every day.
