Sarah doesn’t believe her spiritual, sensitive self and intuitive interests are shameful. That’s not how she views what she’s about.
Sarah builds her long-term assets….
Sarah builds her future.
Sarah is not all things to all people.
We’re now in an age where empathy, balance and sensitivity are positive traits.
No longer seen as a weakness, a sign of an inability to cope, but as elements of human nature to help us remember what is and what isn’t acceptable and for us to not only recognise, but understand how a society gets to a dark place.
In times past, yes, being “Toooo sensitive” was often used as an excuse to upset or minimise the effects of an insult, but now, things are beginning to change.
The second I changed my viewpoint of what I was doing and why things weren’t going my way even though I’d made a change, analysed things to death and was trying – positive change happened, almost instantly.
I began to know when it was me and when it was someone else.
Knowing where your own responsibility lies and when it’s someone else, is the life blood of every confident person.
What I did from that day onwards—the epiphany moment—was to take charge of my own transformation and operate far more focused and strategically.
Going backwards was not an option.
I built up a life of commitment to my transformation.
I became my own transformational leader
and decided to lead myself from the front, rather than being the armchair self-critic I had previously engaged with.
I became the good example (to myself) and imagined a troop of individuals inside of me, all looking for their leader.
In fact, I established an inner place for the disjointed parts of myself all to meet.
I took them on the journey from the false to my true self, escaping the need for approval on the march to freedom.
I positioned myself as MY most trusted advisor, EVEN IF I made mistakes.
The shift in thinking was a game-changer.
I looked at the world out there as my friend and what I wanted to engage with, I did what I had read in the famous Earl Nightingale quote: “Watch what everyone else does – do the opposite. The majority is always wrong”.
I made it a point of deciding I was no longer going to be concerned with what other people valued within me, I wasn’t going to fit in with a perception of who I should be, I was going to be who I am.
Within a short period of time I had developed my own business, bought a car when previously I had to sell the one I had in order to live. A year later I met and married my husband (we’ve been happily together now for 18 years) and I bought a house I never thought I’d ever be able to have.
That's a big difference from when I was the struggling graduate cleaning toilets.
