He called me selfish… and it changed my life…
Fortunately for me, I was blessed to have an opportunity to go and spend 3 days with Brendon at an event that changed my life. I had been online for about 4 years by this time and had fallen in love with Brendon’s mentoring style. Not only does he have a BIG heart, he actually cares about every person who comes into his centre of influence. He’s just a gift from heaven is all I can say, and when you hear his story, you will 100% understand, that he is here to impact the masses…. you do not want to miss his session at the Own Your Future Challenge.
You see Brendon has this unique gift of helping you see and find your purpose and usually it’s something that was right under your nose all along… just like me.
This is how it unfolded…
While Brendon was teaching on stage, I think it was day two from memory, he said something that really cut through to my heart.
It was a message, that I believe so many women need to hear, who like me, had been shut down in the past for being stupid, when really you had a such an amazing gift, all along
On this day, Brendon was talking about the power of a book, and how by NOT sharing your message, we were being selfish, because that message, talent, gift could be the one thing that could change another person’s life forever… just like Brendon had done for me.
He then went on to say that one of the most powerful and lasting legacies, that can make the biggest impact ripple in other people’s lives, was to share your story, genius and message, in a book.
All of a sudden my heart sank... and the memories of that horrible teacher came flooding back like a blocked drain, and I felt like I was once again drowning in my own whirlpool of self doubt and shame. For a moment time stood still and I felt like I’d gone back in time to that classroom of failure, where everyone on either side of me were pointing and laughing at me. To be honest my initial reaction was upset and anger.
Yes, Brendon had pushed my buttons in that moment, but in a good way and here’s why…
I knew deep down inside I was here to change lives, and I also knew in my heart what Brendon was saying was true. How could it not be true when so many people’s books had changed my life…. including Brendon’s own books.
I was in such turmoil because I did not want to be selfish… but my English teacher told me I sucked and for 30 years of my life, I believed that to be true.
