I grew up with two sets of beliefs.
The first was that I was meant for an awesome life. This has consistently come true. My life has been, and continues to be, exhilarating. I connect to my deepest desires, I listen to the intuitive hits and make quick decisions that make my heart sing.
The second belief was…
- I would never be someone that could create massive positive impact in the world – ‘I didn’t know enough, or ‘I would never be heard.’
- I was a shy (although smart) child and was often intimidated by others.
- I remember being told ‘there are leaders and followers in the world Jen, and you are a follower.’
As you can imagine, this held me back for a long time.
I would look at people fulfilling huge missions, creating massive results and I would think that just isn’t who I am.
I don’t have it in me to galvanise huge amounts of resources, be at the forefront of innovation and dedicate my entire life to a cause.
I would compare myself and feel inadequate.
I felt small in some way and above all powerless when the planet so clearly needs radical change in many ways right now.
Despite being a coach for some years it still took me some time to realise my power.
And more importantly, that my power was equally as transformational as the ‘movers and shakers’ of the world.
This way of being currently has me living in the stunning ski resort town of Chamonix in France with my husband and two children. In between playing in the mountains the year is peppered with adventures to far-flung places around the globe for both business and pleasure, and I am deeply passionate about my work.
