Smoking, alcohol and 20 kilos gone. I am free, happier, healthier, and more confident
It is now 16 months since I quit cigarettes…. I wrote a testimonial then. Here is part two, 6 months later.
I have now given up drinking (I used to do this daily), and am on the path to even greater vitality and health, and am exercising regularly. I have currently lost twenty-one kilos to date! What this has meant to me is that I feel free. I am in control, free of any addictions and free of the need to self-medicate to escape. I stand stronger and more powerful in my life and am able to handle the challenges that life sometimes throws. I have so much more vitality and confidence, so on a day to day level, I am so much happier, healthier and free because of this.
I am a single parent and feel I can now lead by example. When I get on the treadmill and my son sees me, I can truthfully say, that if you work at what you want, keep at it, consistently, you can achieve anything you desire. I am giving my child the gift of solid foundations for his life. As a parent, you are setting examples every moment of your day, whether or not you are consciously aware of what you are doing. My friends and family often ask me how I achieved what I have; so I tell them about Mandy and Mindset Coaching. (Sadly, most of them won’t invest in themselves, so will never really know how amazing life can be and how much happier healthier and free you can be.)
I now have these most amazing gifts for life; I have learned the art of goal setting and life skills that I can share with my children and others, and I believe anything is now achievable. Prior to seeing Mandy I had a lot of panic and fear and didn’t really believe that change was possible. It felt too hard on my own.
Great teachers teach us skills that we take with us through life so we can depend upon ourselves more. This is what Mandy gave me. I can now share these with my children, to help them grow up and become independent. I know that if you want something and you set your mind to it, with help, you can achieve it. The only thing in the way is yourself, as I know. Why I sought help.
If someone asked me today what I would have paid to give up smoking and drinking, to feel fit, healthy and vital as I do today, I wouldn’t have blinked at $10,000 or $20,000. It’s your life, your health. It’s everything. Now I look at what I paid and see what a tiny, tiny amount it was to get my life back. I realise it was the best investment I have ever made. And I am a single parent, so if I can do it, so you can you. Don’t make excuses. Don’t waste time. Don’t waste your life. If you are sick of struggling and you want your life back, take that step and make that call to Mandy.
Write down your wish list of what you want and what would make your life brilliant. Imagine for a moment that this was achievable. What would that be worth to get your life to where you want it to be.
Imagine getting this and investing a fraction of the cost to get there. Imagine being healthier happier and full of vitality. With Mandy on your side, you can have this. As a non-smoker now, my life insurance premiums have dropped, so I am actually saving money every month on my premiums.
Take that step. Seek Mandy out. Don’t wait another year until the time is right. Don’t wait until you have more money, more time, or whatever excuse you use. (Yes, I did this too once!) That space will never happen. I promise! Don’t wait until you are sicker, fatter, unhappier, more miserable, have diabetes, have separated and are in even more pain. Do it now.
The great thing is that I know I can come back to Mandy if I have something I need guidance with, or is too big for me to tackle on my own. I feel I have someone on my side, backing me all the way. I know I will go back. I miss our time together, yet now I need time to grow and walk my path in my new self and my new confidence. When I do, we will be working on completely different things as I take my life to a whole new level.
I would like to say this about Mandy:-
‘I believe you have been sent by God as one of his angels to do his work. You are here to heal and restore people and to help them achieve their full potential. Take that step, invest in yourself and seek out Mandy. You are truly blessed to have found her.’
I wish I could find the perfect words to articulate to you, how and why you must believe in yourself, invest in yourself and call Mandy now. Don’t wait. Do it now. If I can do it, I know you can too and you deserve to reach your potential, be happier healthier and live the life you desire.
