We are all here to live every situation you can imagine, good or bad; right or wrong; positive or negative. Why? So we can learn from the experience as part of the adventure of life.  Murray Kibblewhite


The other day I met with a young female client who was preparing to go into business.

She revealed to me that at High School she had severe case of acne on her face, so much so that she was bullied mercilessly. She lost so much confidence and became so anxious that she had to have people take her from one classroom to another in the school. This lead to her suffering acute anxiety and depression.

So, sitting opposite her now, how could I reconcile the beautiful, young, vivacious, open and confident 22 year old girl in front of me without a blemish on her face, shoulders and upper arms? As well, she was wearing only light make up!

What happened? What made her change from ugly to beautiful?

Smiling broadly she told me her story.

Eventually her parents realised her situation and arrange through her doctor for her to have special treatment. She had three of these treatments which were more than normally recommended, and they began to improve her skim.

The bullying and online threats did not stop until she left school. So she received counselling which lead her to say positive affirmations to change from her negative thinking. As she said, it was like changing TV channels; she switched off thoughts of desperation to those that were positive and constructive. She still continues these practices daily.

Once she left High School she entered a training programme for makeup which has become her career. Here she made new friends who supported her, so she was able to start a new life.

Her confidence grew back so much that she was able to travel to the UK where she worked for 12 months before returning to New Zealand.


So what is the learning?

I learnt that there is always another option each of us can accept.

But there is the need for self-discipline; courage and love of self to develop so you can overcome issues and challenges.

All life’s experiences are opportunities to learn. The challenge is to decide, what is the real lesson to be learnt?

How to use:-

1) Accept you need to change your Attitude and Actions on a daily basis.

2) Read, view, discuss and learn other ways. Set time aside daily to study.

3) Practice a new action until it becomes a better habit. Then discuss with your friends.
