|When All is Not What It Seems|

What would you do if someone you loved, admired and considered a master - maybe your mentor, no less - said some things about you that weren't true to a lot of people?
What would you do if the stuff sort of looked cool, however ….. the facts of the matter, well... matter (and change the picture somewhat) …. or maybe not? Depends on one's values. And intentions.
I like clear values and intentions, how about you?
Here is what was said:
"I was in a training on the weekend, helping some students with how to present seminars. One of the participants said casually "I've just helped my 100th person."
That's, I think, pretty extraordinary.
Nadine Love is a single mum living in a remote area, and filled with determination to make things happen for her.
How did she do it?
1. Had a vision for herself and her family that got her excited
2. Planned, with our help, how to achieve her goals
3. Got connected with the 'right' people - positive, likeminded people who are committed to being their own best
4. Committed to give it her best
5. Committed to contribute to others
6. Committed to stop doing the stuff that had, until then, held her back
7. Got the education she needed so she could be in demand by people who want to be the best versions of themselves they can be
Good for her, I say."
Looks good, wouldn't you say? Great!
Trouble is I didn't ever say I've helped 100 my hundredth person and I'm not a single mum.
I have 534 on my client log and 74 mentees and then there are the trainings, webinars and other things I do - and that is not counting my background in the UK, NZ and SA where I've helped 1000's of people. Maybe it was just the case of a missing "O as Derek said?" Yea, that must have been it. She meant 1000 maybe? huh?
And then I didn't say it - 'til now. Now you know. My whole vision is about supporting people who are helping others so that many, many, many people can be well and happy. Playing and paying it all forward.
I was a single mum until Mira was 2 and a half, She is now 5 and I have a gorgeous man in my life.
I live 30 minutes from the third largest city in Australia in an area, and in an area and a street that people aspire to!
Go figure …
So, really, I'm curious, What would you do?
