My life defining moment happened in 2016 in-front of a group of people called “the Comfort Zone Crusher’s” who are now my dear friends. The point of this group was to push you out of your comfort zone and make you do things that you definitely don’t do and kill the fear in you. So, I did things like lie down on the street as people walked by like I am sun bathing. The point. Don’t give a damn. What other people think is none of your business. It’s interesting what your body and mind go through when experiencing a change. It instinctively screams NOOOOO, even if the change is good. And I learnt something very important. You cannot trust your body instincts. It only reacts to its natural programming. The good news is, you can reprogram your responses from fear to excitement. From anger to forgiveness.
One other thing the group did was anyone could give a talk about any topic they wanted. It had to be between 5-7 mins long and afterwards you got feedback on it. Again, it gets you out of your comfort zone. At that time I had never spoken in-front of any group of people. But I knew this was meant to be part of the work I wanted to fulfil in my life. So I signed up.
This is the reason this moment changed me. It changed a belief I hard about myself since I was a kid. Someone stood up after my talk and said “You know, you have a gift. This is your gift”. I broke down in tears. You know why? Because I had the opposite belief. I had told myself over and over again for so many years, “Ceri you have no talent.” I truly believed that. After over 20 years of telling myself that false belief, a stranger tells me the opposite thing and I truly felt it to be true. I decided on that day, that I am dedicating my life to helping people break their false beliefs and find who they truly are. I want to help people realize that they have so much value in themselves. That they do not need to search for it anywhere else, but only within themselves. I want everyone to feel the freedom and joy I felt that day I realized what my gift was.
Let me be part of that journey with you. Let us break our false beliefs and values and create new ones which will not only support you but strengthen you in ways you can not imagine.
